This is like the second time this has happened to me. I was up on Kremer today trout fishing and while setting up a bobber rod with a marmooska jig and a waxie, I had a 14" splake hit the 3/8 bell sinker that was right above the jig. Thank God the tiny hook found it's way home and I ended up landing it. LOL I punched like 20 holes on the east end and as usual, the last hole i cut is where I caught this one and then lost another one jigging a tiny mother of pearl swedish pimple and a waxie.

You'd be surprised what fish will take a wax worm. I was fishing lake trout on Saturday and I just decided to put a waxy down for some reason, the waxy caught a couple little ones and I caught a 5 pounder on a spoon tipped with a minnow and an added waxy (the waxy probably didn't matter, but I didn't catch any fish that day until I tipped that waxy on there, who knows?) If you aren't having the best luck of fishing, then try new things, who knows what'll work. My plan for the next big lake trout rig is a pop tab super glued to hook baited with waxies, hehe.

good fishin

Would it be rude of me to ask where you've been laker fishing? No specific areas on the lake, just which lake.
I'm thinking about hitting Caribou during the week (tues, weds, or thurs). May also walk back into Lucky and try to ice a big brownie or two.

Thanks,
Brian

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
