Gonna be staying up in the pengilly area for a few days. I plan to fish Swan Lake for a day or two and also try to get over to Spider. I have heard good reports on both, but dont really have any specifics on where to start on these two lakes. Any help regarding depths, what type of structure, lure/baits, and any specific locations would be great.

Thanks much,
FisherMn

A bit of additional info. Would like info on walleyes for both lakes, and also any info on Muskie and Bass on Spider.

FisherMN:

I haven't been on Swan in over a month but should have a little info for you. Give me a jingle at 218-778-0087 when you get up here. I'm available anytime after 3:00 pm.

Used to fish Spider Lake a little for bass too.

FisherMN,

Just a note to let you know that I went to our initial lake early yesterday morning before it got hot and caught some bass up to 19".

Did you manage to get out anywhere else over the weekend?

Greg,

Got out on Swan and Snowball over the weekend. Nothing too big, but a few bass and northerns. Walleyes on Swan were dead slow. Switched over to bass/northern casting and had much better success. Had planned to hit our initial lake sunday afternoon/evening, but got involved in fixing my 1971 Winnebago motorhome, and before I knew it it was time to head back to Duluth. I definitely want to get out there later in August. Thanks for the trip, had a great time.

Dudley

      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)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!
