hello. last sunday night my hubby and I were drifting on the west side of the causeway, when all of a sudden my pole just about bent in half! I was fishing with 12 lb test, and has a green jig tipped with a leach. What ever fish it was, took off under the boat, and literally stripped all the line off of my reel (and I had it full~125 yards or better). When it hit the end of my line, it turned around and started swimming in the opposite direction. I couldnt keep up and ended up letting the fish have too much slack, and lost it. I was thinking that this fish had been a lake trout. Bottom was about 24 foot, and the fish went fast and straight. What are you thinking?? Could it have been a lake trout??

(plus, we re lined our heavier duty poles with 20lb and 30 lb test stren, we lost two 8 lb and maybe a 10 lb northern earlier in the evening)

retired fishing lady!

I'd say more likely a big northern. I think the lakers are going to be a little deeper and over in the Sherry Arm area, but you never know. Maybe the Pokegama Lake Monster.

That lake is scary... I would bet one of the huge Poke Pike or that Poke monster!!!

      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!
