Anyone fishing on Lake Itasca (State Park)?

Fish biting?

How is the water level on the main launch on the lake ?

Had some of the best fishing on Itasca that I've had since going up there for 7 Years over the Memorial Day weekend. Saturday morning between 3 of us caught 3 walleyes ranging from 15"-17.5", 4 jumbo perch, and two fo the biggest bluegills I've ever seen, 1@12" and 1@9.5". The bluegills are going on the wall.

Sunday morning brought 2 more eyes 16"-17", and 2 more jumbo perch. Sunday evening brought 2 more eyes 15"& 16", and one bluegill 8.5".

Everything we caught came out 12-16 fow, using jumbo leeches and plain snells.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
