Are all of the accesses still open, Adrian's, Morris Point, Zippel Bay? Heading up tomorrow. Also, anyone got a current fishing report, best area, depth? Thanks.

All still open.

I fished Morris last weekend in 28' and did just fine. I really don't think there is a "Majic" depth right now. Sounds like that 18-12' range over Pine is good during the two prime times (early and late). We caught a nice mixed bag of walleye's, saugers, perch, and tulibee's out deeper.

Looks like a beautiful weekend, so there should be no excuse for not trying some different depths.

Was just up at Zipple Bay Resort, Nick has roads still marked, but LOTZA water on the ice on Wednesday of this week when we were there. When driving out to house, we turned around & headed back cuz water was flowing so much & water was on ice all the way to shore. Still 3 feet of ice or so on the lake, but belts on my Jeep sure made a FUSS! Must say tho, fishing was GREAT! Just my Mom & I went for a one-day trip, and I weighed in a 8lb Walleye, over 29.5" long!! Limited out in 26 feet of water, with 8 walleyes for us, and 4 sauger to add to the pot!! Used a gold jig the whole day, nothing else. Had a great time, but next year will go EARLIER in the year, cuz the water freaked us out!! Hope you make it there & good luck fishing!!

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
