Bring ADVIL!

Me and Muddy were out yesterday and the weather was cold but the fishing was red hot. Put in at Birthdale around 10am and by 10:15 we were tangled up with a PIG. After a good ten minutes of wrestling we got'em in the net. The first female of the day 28.5 incher. Not bad for Berkley Gulp! Muddy said I have to try it. So I did, and boy am I glad. Next fish around 10:45 another fat lady. This one came in a tad over 27 inches. To make long story short we ended up whit our eaters and 3 over 26. Just another day of wrist wrenching walleye action on the Rainy River.

Keep your line tight and the Gulp in your pocket.

Meatplow, Do you think Gary Yamamoto worms will work or should I stick to the Gulp? Also, should I bring my Baron so all my leech friends can fish with me or should I bring the duck boat and my dog? Ramp conditions???

I'm not meatplow obviously, but I was up there on Sunday and you could launch a large boat once they moved the ice out in the mornings. Its up to you, either boat would work, there are more rocks and hazards to hit this year with the low water possibly, and I bet your dog is a better buddy than the leech guys anyway...

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      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!
