Hello all

This will be my second trip up to this lake. the first trip didnt go so good due to boat issues on the opener week end

Will be up this week end for sure and was wondering if a few folks can give me a little info or insight on fishing for eyes

What presentation has been working so far?

Looking at the map, I will be fishing around the moose island area to start. Any other good spots a guy can try?

Way Points?!?

A friend of mine mentioned a "Lost" lake close by but i cant seem to find it. Any info on that

Thanks in advance

way points? I doubt that you'll get anything that specific...

As far as presentation, etc... jig & minnow works well this time of year, you'll have to experiment with color, as some work better in some areas than others, but firetiger is normally a pretty good choice.

There's plenty of good fishing in Big Bay.. check a map and look for structure. there's an area near Birch Island that can be productive if the wind is right...otherwise, slip bobber a reef in the evening.

cldboater,

You really do not need to ask for waypoints. Finding the fish on your own is more fun than driving up to a spot dropping anchor and getting your limit. This lake is filled with good sized eaters. Look at your locator till you spot them and have at it. smirk.gif

well thanks to all that replied. Had a blast out there this week end.. caught a lot of nice fish but had to let them go due to the slot limit

in which i don't really understand , but that a whole other discussion

Did great fishing around moose island there.. right at the end of birch point.

As far as presentation. a simple 1/8 oz fuzzy grub tipped with a rainbow minnow was the ticket. Limit out every day. Even on sat. Preppy crappy out but still had fun

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
