The Finger Lakes are a series of lakes below the Alma dam. Going south on hyw. 61 about 6-7 miles south of Wabasha look for the Pioneer campground sign. Take a left following the signs. Right in front of the campground there is a public access. Park in the access, follow the path to the finger lake you want to fish. The third finger is about 3/4 of a mile walk.

I was at the third fingers lake on 2/1/9 from 7:00 to 10:30am. Two of us caught 10 sunnies with 3 keepers. We went down there to see if we could find the auger that came off my brothers ice auger last week. He had a quick release on the auger and it failed. The auger went to the bottom. We got a magnet, and drilled three holes side by side. We tried some rope onto the magnet and dropped it down the holes. The very first try I heard and felt the magnet hit something. I started to pull on the rope and felt some heavyness,I kept pulling up on the rope and spun it around a half turn, and the magnet and the auger came up and out off the hole.I told my brother to grab it, he went after it like a 20 pound walleye. Needless to say he didn't care if we caught anything else all day. $192.00 for a new 4 blade auger.

      Chad, looks like a heck of a view. Have fun trying to decide which place to spend time at!

      I'm not a muskie guy, but you'll have better luck posting this on the lake vermilion thread

      That was a fat one! We don't know smallies so even if we had measured it, we would have released it just the same not realizing what we may have done.

      I got nuthin’ 😉   I think @Hoey has my favorite motor pic. 😁

      That’s a dandy BobT.  Good birthday gift for your BIL!   I agree with @DonkeyHodey, it’s all in the girth when they get over 20-21 inches.  My heaviest weighed on a scale went 7.5 lbs and was 22 inches.  It was the thickest smallie I’ve ever seen live.  I couldn’t believe the weight so I weighed it twice.   Plus camera angles just can’t always do a fish justice.  Me holding my fish made it look like a heavy 5.  It looked more for real when my brother held it.   Laying in the net on 22.5 inch bump board.   That one took my breath away; made me shake for a while.   Those toads will do that; congrats again!

      If you want to have fun, get over the Walleye obsession.   Bass and pike are also around and also fun to catch.
