If this happens, I wouldn't mind to climb in with someone and give it a shot. A couple years ago there was a get together in April and I was in Lota lota's boat. We come out of the WI entry with 5 to 6 footers rolling in from the East. I believe Scott called it green water? I don't know about that, but I was very much on the nervous side to say the least. Lota made the call to head in and we went up to Two Harbors and trolled around the harbor and I put a coho in the box. Still a neat experience, minus those big waves.

Copman, Welcome to the site, FM Get Together is where we all here get together for a day now and then and share in a day of fishing on the same water. We always grill after fishing and meet knew names and faces it is a lot of fun. Some of us here have made new best friends and fishing buddies smile.gif.

I agree, get togethers are always a lot of fun. Hopefully if we get a big lake get together planned, the weather and the bite cooperates a little better than the previous two years!

Well it looks like we all would like to go so I hope some one would pick the day shocked.gif. I can say any weekend for me would work fuel lines need to get done yet on my boat so I could jump in with some one if you need help one the big lake or if some one has room. So on that note let's set the date smile.gif.

Skipper's Kid,

Assuming the date works out, and you know the lake and the secrets to catching them you can jump in with me - I need to learn more about this big lake fishing. Although I did boat my first coho sunday morning! I'll be taking off from the bay down parkpoint.

Do we want to avoid the Marathon weekend, which is June 16 or maybe it does not matter????

23rd or 30th. Well, 30th is a moving day for me into my new place (and probably other college kids as leases start around that time)....

I vote 23rd.

Tom - you think its a Meat - Spoon - or top-water time around that date?

More than likely it will be a spoon bite and it wont be top water unless something drastically changes. But that all depends on what the fish want and weather leading up to that point that determine the favorite baits. I might be able to make it this year! Standing by to see the date.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.
    • DLD24
      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
