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.

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
