Alaskander-Haven't heard from you for some time. I e-mailed you a couple of times over the past months. Maybe I have an out of date address. Maybe you are deep in the Alaskan bush. Drop me a line if you get a chance. Mark

RedBricks...My favorite time of year is upon us! Anytime you can pack a shotgun and a fishing pole and they both get equal use is a good time. How did you do fishing up North?

I've got some pictures to send you as soon as I scan them.

Duffman....Good to hear from you buddy! I just got out of the bush on the 30th. Great summer! My research went well and I observed some cool salmon behavior in Western Alaska. Landed quite a few Pike in the 40-45 inch category, something I've found to be quite rare back in Mn unless your lobbing a spear through a hole. Back in Fairbanks now waiting for snow and sucking down suds!

Thirteen pound laker is quite a fish. Haven't caught one that big in a long time. I will keep in touch with you and shoot the bull about that neck of the woods. I should be back up-North in Mid-December.

E-mail me about your Bdub trip, I would like to know where your going.

Alaskander.....
How did your summer go? If you don't already know, The Ice Shanty gang has moved to this site, under the Ice Leaders forum. Caught a 13lb. Laker out of Trout lake on the 4th of July weekend. Going to hit the Bdub second weekend of October for a four day trip. Going to fish a couple of smaller trout lakes for brookies and rainbows. When are you due back in MN?

Alaskander....
Did you happen to get the e-mail I sent you last week or is the address I used out of date?

      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?

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Looks interesting.... any chance a video is on its way 🙂
