Fished Island today. 10-15 I didn't use cranks, but had fish on all day with jigs and minnows. The fish were in a solid ban at 20 feet off an island drop off. The small northerns were also quite active. The lake has a bite on, but thus far this fall I haven't been able to land on some big fish. No crappies to speak off either.

Today was about as nice a late fall day to be out on the water. It was just warm enough to enjoy the day and I could still get the hands wet. There was hardly anyone out there.

I'm glad I went today because I've got a business trip spanning the next to weekends and after that its down to the cites to watch the Vikes play the Chargers. So today may have been the last open water trip of the 2007 season.

However, the boat stays ready till freeze up.

Troyslund if your worried about people giving honest reports than you better go out and work on your own. Thats a chance you take when you ask for info on the net. You may get great "Honest" info and then you might get aimed in the carp hole.

Only real way to know for sure is to get out and find out for yourself. At least then you can hopefully believe what you found. wink.gif

I'll assure you I wouldn't come here and waste my time to write b.s. and I don't think other members do either.

Shogun its like reading the news paper. Most of it is really good info, some is filler and some is just ink to keep ya reading. wink.gif

Seriously though I think for as long as you have been around you know better than that 90%. If not feel free to pitch in and bring that % down.

I know the guys who post the most on this forum dont BS about fishing areas, times etc. We may not tel every detail but usually will give enough where a guy who wants to put in a little work could get something to tug his line a few times.

Well, there IS a fair amount of BS going on a lot of the time. Most folks know when everyone's playing around or when we're serious, and there's lots of room for both. That combination is why at FM we have more fun while helping each other out with great tips, tactics and spots.
