If you have a boat troll from the drop-off at the point to the hump in front of the swim beach. If no boat, large egg weight and sucker, do a 'HAPPY GILLMORE' out as far as you can.

The north and south ends of the lakes are shallow and get very weedy. If you are fishing in a boat you could manage fishing these areas(I've caught pike fishing bass in these areas) the rest of the lake gets deeper and there are actualy weedlines and you could soak a bobber and minnow from shore easily, though I would shy away from the docks with the other people fishing. I think the point is an okay spot to start with, but I would move around.

Hey Rincrat,

You remind me of me when I was your age. I used to fish Bush a lot. We had good luck on the West side if you can get past the weeds. I think its great you are that into fishing with all the other distractions there are in life for a teenager. Keep it up and good luck fishing! Dan

The point is almost as bad as the docks with other people fishing, these are not the types of spots I like to fish personally. I would just move around and cast out to the weedlines. I fished there a lot as a kid too(wasnt that long ago). Still do occasionally

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      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.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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
    • LBerquist
      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
