Recommended Posts

am coming up with some buddies on Sat and renting a house from Brandt's. How has the bite been on the south side of the lake - Center Bar, 4 mile or 5 mile? no idea of where our house will be. Thanks for any replies.

He probably has you on Sloppy Joes reef, that's where he puts most of his rentals, maybe out on 4 mile.

We have our house on Sloppy Joes and it's been slow. I'll be up tommorow and I plan on spending the day on foot out near 4 and 5 mile. If I don't find anything I might pack up and head to the mud flats for the day.

I am taking my guy fishing on Tuesday out of KJ's and we have never been there before. Heard he has nice houses and roads. We are really hoping to find some fish and I would appreciate any advice/comments. We have been going out of Lyback's for a long time and the service and houses are excellent - just no fish. I know it is spotty everywhere. It is my fella's birthday and I am hoping for some fish out of KJ's. We will be out 7am to 7pm shift. I believe it will be Anderson Reef and Spirit Island area??? Have never fished this area before.

I was up last weekend, we fished Sloppy Joes, 4 mile gravel and 5 mile gravel. Same story everywhere, small perch is all we saw and it was tough to get them to bite.

Ditto on Izatys reef. Lots and lots of small perch on the camara. Very few takers.

I was fishing around Spirt Island Fri-sat morn. 2 guys about 8 perch only 1 BIG jumbo the rest were small. Fished rocks, mud, shallow, and deep. Hopefully they eventually turn on it has been a slow year. Good luck and let us know how ya do.

Brandt's had us on Center Bar 28 FOW. we had an Aqua View Camera and saw alot of small perch, a cell phone, a flash light and some type of bottle on the bottom. Jerry Brandt also told us some person lost their $800 glasses down the hole. We thought we could see the part of the rims that go behind the ears sticking up. out of 5 guys in our group, I was the only one that caught any fish - 10 perch about 3" long. I have the Easy Byte attachment on the end of my rod tip and it does work great. You can see the easy byte tip move when the fish is nibbling on the lure. I used a Bro Bug on Sat and a Lindy Rattl'n Flyer spoon both with Eurolarvae. did not see any "Eyes".

Went up tuesday nite till today. out between spirit and sloppy joes 29fow. There were 3 of us and we only caught 2 small perch a piece. Saw a whole lot of 4-9 inch perch and quite a few walleyes on the cameras, but could only get a few to commit.

We have access out of Isle Bay - turn right or left at the Supervalu.

Our houses have been catching jumbos...Mike came home with 40 between the two of them yesterday...we gave them away. He's out this AM and had 24 as of a couple hours ago.

Big schools move through and there has been a lot of action. Their bellies are pretty full of mayfly larvae so that is what you want to use.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
