I will be up there in two weeks to stay for 2 nights. It's good to know the night bite is picking up. Then again there was a full moon this weekend. Steady action with the walleyes; or was it one or two fish an hour?

We were just down the road from you in the garage door house. We ended up with a pail full of fish, but they would come 1 every hour or 2. The pail of fish contained a mix of everything. Walleye (12-14 of them / kept 6), Perch (6), Pike (4) & Crappie (1) came to visit. I know it sounds like a broken record, but the Minnow Station houses with Kelly & Jonny are the best. My Dad & I had a great time. Whoever plops down in the spot we were in, I hope you catch whatever was taking our green glow jigs. It was probably a big Pike, but we will never get to see for sure. I'd like the garage door house on our next trip please grin

I have some really cool pix of the full moon setting on Sat morning. The moon was the shape of a football due to the vision tricks Red Lake plays on anything on the horizon. The super hillmans highway was looking a bit strange on Sat also. I can e-mail them to anyone willing to post the pix. I've tried several times to put up pix, but for whatever reason it never works.

The only complaint I have is that I don't live closer.

Yes he is the one, good thing it was not one of Kelly or Jonny's houses! He said he was going to be GOOD this year, we will see. Is he in your house? No sleeping bags needed in my basement, but you better bring them for the fish houses.

I was up this past weekend for the first time ever on URL. It was a lot of fun. We stayed in a 5 man sleeper and we were the "slow" group.

We didn't do too bad. Probably caught around 30 walleyes, 1 crappie, 1 perch, and a 33-34" northern. No consistent bite or time. The only thing we noticed is that the fish did not respond to jigging at all. Every fish pulled out of the water was caught on a dead stick. The dead stick thing was a little disappointing, it's much more enjoyable when you can attack them with jiggin'.

Although, I had hoped for a better bite, I hope to get back up there again and I enjoyed the experience. Thanks for the hard work guys!

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?  
    • delcecchi
      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.
    • Gone Out Fishin
      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away. 
    • Getanet
      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.
