Work the outside edges of the weeds and look for quickly sloping drop off areas and associated humps, less weeds, larger fish.

They always seem to wreck my walleye fishing but I would be willing to do a bit of that maybe once the dog days roll around. FLsniper is itching to get out there too so maybe we could use the stealth pontoon and hit some of the better areas and or even cast for an eye or two at the same time.

"Stealth Pontoon"....sounds like my kind of rig.

I'm in!

My schedule will be a little more open when the "dog days" start rolling in.

Clam Up just purchased himself a muskie setup...so he's on the hunt now too.

Tunrevir...shoot me an email...or call when you head out there sometime...I'm great for jumping in on last minute plans even. I can always dump my boat (16' rebel) too.

      I would say Pike fishing got noticeably worse after the first year of spearing.  Used to catch lots of big pike while musky fishing..  I didn't catch a single one last year.  Makes me sad and angry, to be honest.

      The taxidermist won't know how to mount a fish of this size A true trophy of a life time.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.
