Anyone hooking anything decent out there? Was out yesterday for a bit and caught about 15 dink crappies. I threw the camera down in a spot that was around 22 ft. and was spinning the cam pretty fast around and I saw white and a huge eyeball and thought oh **** that's a body. Turns out it was the white from the underside jaw of biggest muskie I have ever seen in that lake. Nose to nose with the cam lol, scared the c r a p right outta me when I was spinning the cam. I thought for sure the camera was gonna get hit but it just sat there for about 2 minutes then turned and swam away. It was easily 45+. Needless to say there were no other fish in sight lol.

great little lake for some big time action. I fish this lake all the time during open water. But have yet to try the winter bite.

On Saturday, I saw a truck go through the ice in the bay near the bull rushes. Pretty interesting. Not sure why some would drive into the weeds like that. Anyone else see it?

It wasnt out there on Sunday....well if it sank maybe it was lol. Why anyone would drive through weeds is a good question. Maybe one too many Coors or possibly just lost would be my guess.

I just fish it open water too, glad to hear there is at least 1 muskie in there.

The whole front right tire went in. They eventually got it out. It was during the day too. Around 2 in the afternoon.

No reports lately? I have been thinking about heading out there in the next day or two and see how things go. I drove by the other day and noticed a small number of people on the N end and the S bay looked pretty full, other than that not many other spots. Are there any? I've fished the lake plenty in the summer only to catch a couple small bass and that's it! Maybe throwing a double cowgirl or a buldawg has something to do with my lack of success? Lol

If any of you are interested in hooking up with me out there let me know because I usually have an open chair. I have a blue Fish Trap Guide and I'll be driving a maroon colored S-10, swing by and say hi even if you are going out to fish in your own house.

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck

      Thanks Hoey.

      Good luck.  There are a gazillion of those corner caps online.   
    • PSU
      Excellent Del, closest one I have seen so far! Thanks a bunch, I'll check it out
    • delcecchi
      I did a google on "corner cap" and gunwale corner cap.... Saw some stuff that looked like it would work.   here is one.   this is from Australia but probably could find something here.   Also a bunch of pontoon stuff might be adaptable.     Another thought is to look at Lund models and find one that uses the same hull as your boat only is more recent....   My guess is that Lund has been using basically the same hulls for a bunch of different models for years.   I bet you can find one that has similar corner caps as what you need.   You could even give them a call.
