I've only been able to get out one day this week. I had the entire week free for once and mother nature kicks me in the (contact us please).

On the bright side, it looks nicer next week.

K Dawg, sorry to hear you stayed in. I had the brother-in-law on Green in Spicer saturday for smallies. Fished in small rain falls caught several nice fish. Plus pair of 20 inch smallies.

Sunday we hit Pulaski sunday around 10, fish through the short rains. Caught alot of rock bass, Mark landed a 20" bass. About 2:00 we started fishing for walleyes. The sky was really dark, short squirt of rain, and fish on. I caught 3 eyes the largest a 22" with 2 others 16". Lost another nice eye just below the boat. Then I saw lighting and heard the thunder, didn't seem far away, we left the lake fast. I told my Brother-in-law, he could stay and fish in the lighting, I also said "Dead men tell no tales, I'm done for the day". We no more then, tied down the boat and the rain and wind hit hard. He said "Jim called that just right".

This was first time, I fished in the rain, in 1yr and half. Why get wet when you don't need to. This time it paid off. I have had many days, soaked to the bone and no fish. 15yrs ago, heavy rains I didn't care, I'm fishing. Now days much older and wiser, PLUS DRIER, I'll fish whenever.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      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.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.
