With a car full of gear, and a head full of good intentions, I tried to head up to the lake Saturday. I didn't make more than a few miles when the fan belt broke. I managed to limp back home to get the car, and attempt to locate a replacement, which on a holiday weekend was no small task. I did find one, but by the time I was back up and running, it was time for us to head to our family cookout, so the fishing would have to wait until Sunday afternoon. In the morning, I participated in the local parade, and was excited about heading up as soon as possible afterwards. As you know, mother nature was not cooperating, and we decided to hold off until Monday, for some hopefully better weather. After spending the night at a friend's place on the way to the lake, we woke up Monday am to a nice round of thunder and lightning, but it was headed south. At this point, I had made up my mind that we were going to fish rain, sleet, or snow. Naturally, as I was walking over to call Fisky, to tell him we were on the way, the phone rings. I knew as soon as my buddy told me it was for me, that fishing would have to wait for another day, and I was right. The kids are going to be dropped off early from there weekend at Maple Lake, and we had to be home by ten. Oh joy. Sorry Fisky, the stars were way out of alignment or something, but the summer's far from over--we'll get out there soon. Hope everone else had a better time getting on the water than I did. <P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON

      Went out the last couple days on Mille lacs, we had no problem finding fish, but the big fish eluded us... We got all sorts of year classes from 11" eyes on up to 24", which is a good sign... That big storm they got must have dirtied the water up, all the fish we found were on the top edge of the flats no matter how bright it was... Rigging leeches and crawlers were the best until we got some waves then the jigging rap was taking all the fish. The fish were stacked up on points of flats and narrow ridges on the flats... We tried pulling lead for a little while, but I've never done it so I had zero confidence in it haha.

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
