Headed up to the GR area on the 12th to hit Spider and another lake for the first time. I fish mostly Northerns and Muskie, any advice on where to start on Spider and what other lake might I try?
Thanks

Deer, Moose,and North star are the closest muskie lakes. If the water temp is still low your best bet would probably be the shallow bays for muskie, and the humps and deep weed edges for larger pike.

Thanks guy's. Were headed up there on June 12th.
What about Wabana? My brother in law would like to try that lake. Are there any little "pearls" that might hold some larger Pike?

Good morning all.
Anyone been on Spider this week? Wondering if you could share any info on what you've experienced.
Water temps? Pike? Muskie? Bass?
Heading up tonight. Thanks.

Not very well. It was very windy. We ran every imaginable bait we had from the shore to about 10 feet and picked up 1 decent northern and a couple small ones, one small bass and had a couple "lookers" on the north end.
However, on a secret lake, earlier on Sat and on Sunday I picked up a 15# pike and a couple large mouth bass around 3#'s and my nephew got his first lm 4.5#'s on a top water. That made it all worth while.
Talking to a couple guy's at the launch - earlier in the week the picked up a couple small muskies, some walleye's and a few northerns. One other guy said the killed the bass, SM and LM, on Ruby Sat morning.

      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before

      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor
