Well I'm heading back to Swan today around 11:00 a.m., it look's like the weather will be a little nicer then the trip I had in June and hopefully I can stay out of the hospital emergency room this time!!!!!

I'll let everyone know how I did on Monday.

Well I fished for 4 hours Fri. my brother and 2 other guys fished it for 8 hours, 1 walleye in the boat!!! We went to Winni on Sat. and my brother and I boated 15 walleyes in 5 hours, we caught 5 in the slot and the rest were over the slot, they were between 22-26".

And as I posted in my last message, I'm going to try to stay out of the hospital, well that didn't happen, I can't believe it but I was in the Hibbing hospital for another emergency surgery on Sun. morning!!!!!!!!!! So I just was released and I'm back in town, absolutely unbelieveable!!!!

Whats the deal are you accident prone or just a streak of bad luck.

Oldbear,

I am accident prone but this wasn't the result of any accident. It's kinda embarressing to go into too much detail, but the surgery I had in June didn't heal properly and became infected, so they had to open me up again and make the necessary repairs and also cure a staph infection that I had going on. Without getting into too much detail, let's just say, it hurts to sit down!!!!

We have a cabin on swan.next to grozy's point.walleyes have been good to me so far this year. they started out slow like they always do.but have picked up in the last mounth or so.. large leeches are working the best know but shiners are working . but you get a slimmer from time to time.. I fish the shore from grozy's point all the down the shore to the corner in about 10 to 13 feet.
i was just up there from the 15th to the 19th and did real well . alot of eyes in the 13 to 17 inches range. i will be heading back up AUG.19th 20th and the 21st..if you are heading up there around that time give give me a shout .. we can hook up and do some fishing

TYGRO,
Are you originally from the area or do you just have the cabin there?

It's going to be a few weeks before my butt is going to be bouncing in any boat seat!!!

my grandparents and my mother were from hibbing. the cabin has been in our family since 1969. so you could say i have been going up to that area for some time.. i live in east bethel. and travel to the cabin every chance i get.. i love it up there . if i could i would be living up there.so next time you get a chance to get up to swan give me a yell. i might be able to give you some pointers on were to find some eye's .. but if is slimmers you are looking for. you can find them just about any where on that lake.. my dad pulled in a 41 incher a couple of years ago.. we have that on on the wall. still looking for my trophy eye though..

Ole, Well, I cant say that I did much better. Tried everything I could think of and didnt get more than just a few small eyes... That lake seems to have me cursed. In all the years I have fished it, I cant ever seem to catch a decent number of nice walleyes. I know they are there, but I must be doing something wrong.

Tygro, my in-laws have a place straight across from your cabin, near the point where the airplane hangar/garage is. I fished that same area you mentioned from Grozy's back towards the corner, and couldnt catch a dang thing, although I didnt have leeches either, so that might explain it. Were you fishing with Lindy rigs? or just jigs? Any particular colors that work well? I am at my wits end with that lake. It seems like under the bridge is the only place I can ever find the 'eyes...

I use JB lindy rigs.I have used just about every color. and have had good luck with all.
but the orange black and crome seem to have been producing the most.I have tried to run crank baits. they have not produced much as of yet . but fall time seems to be the best for cranks.large leeches are working the best. jumbos i think are to big as not as many hits when using them.my best luck has been from about 5:00am to 9:00am and then from around 6:00 pm to sun set.. the stop after sun goes down,,,,,

good luck

Try Crawlers on a long snell and long line a lindy rig. jigs and shiners work well also.

the only problem with crawlers is the perch
will nibble you all day long. i used to use them . but moved to leeches as the perch wont nibble as much

TYGRO,

I don't know, I haven't been there since mid July, still too sore to sit in the boat after surgery. I'll call my brother and ask him then I'll report back.

TYGRO,
I just talked to my brother, he hasn't been fishing lately because it's been so darn cold, but with some warmer weather coming he said it should be going pretty good in the next week or so.

Sorry I'm not much help.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .
    • Bigfatbert
      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did. 
    • papadarv
      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.
