There was decent bite about 2 weeks ago, We got 8 on opener but I have not heard any good reports since. The guys in the cabin got one yesterday fishing for walleye so that could be a good sign?They are out fishing tonight so it will be interesting to see if they targetted them today, They are here for the walleye

Larry and the guys ended up with 20 slabs tonight. The water warmed up to that magic # 68

How's the wind been up there the last few days, and is there any forecasted for the next 2 days. I'll be up there Friday for some fishing, and hope to get into some crappies.

The winds have been hitting each shoreline, it just can't pick a direction. Yesterday it pounded the south shore then swung out of the south and pounded the north shore. It is starting get pretty muddy.

As far as the "majic 68 degrees" I guess you could find it somewhere but I have been on the south shore, the north shore, river and east side trapping shiners and all over the lake guiding and found the south shore coming in at 57-58 degrees, north shore averaging 56 degrees and the river roasting with litle current at 64. These temps can change daily as Red heats and cools very rapidly do to wind created tides pulling water off the bottom and placing it on shore to be blown acrosss the lake surface during the next wind.

      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!
