Heading up with the family on Saturday to fish Star for a week.

Any current reports or info? Mainly targeting eyes, but any info appreciated. May have to go for some panfish as well to keep the boys occupied..

Thanks

Our fishing league fished Star last night, 8 boats, no crappies very few bass and a couple of walleyes, I heard they were very deep 20-30 feet. 1 guy caught a sunfish at 20 feet.

I think your best bet to catch walleyes on Star right now is night fishing.

Another fishing league member adding his 2 cents worth. We lindy rigged leeches from 6-7:30 pm and caught 3 little walleyes. At 7:30 we tried cranks for some reason and while it wasn't fast we did get a 16" walleye a small northern and a 16" largemouth. Just about anything that runs 10-12 ft deep worked for us in just about any color. Find the weed edge (about 14 ft) and try to stay on it. Going down wind was useless, all strikes came while going upwind. Really slow, I think is the key. Good luck this weekend.

So how is the bass fishing at Star? See any up in the shallows or is everythng just deep? Looks like that lake has lots of structure if i remember right. Could be mistaken though. Ill post hear sunday nite to tell how i did.

Well im back from our bass tourney. We mostly fished the reeds and pulled up about 15 bass from range from 1-2.5 pounds. Caught a couple in 3 pouund range. The biggest bass was 5 pounds and some odd ounces crankbaiting over 15ft of water. Plenty of perch that followed, alot of little guys. A few nice sunnies off the reeds in 6-8ft of water. Well thats all i know and im dead tired. Nite

Well, we're back and I have to say that cold front kicked our tails!!! We did have some success w/ crappies on Sunday before the front and again Friday as it started to warm back up running orange spinners w/ fatheads in 11-14' of water just above the weeds. Lots of Rock Bass and those annoying 15-20" snakes. We found very few walleyes wanting to cooperate. Tried trolling, rigging, etc with no luck day or night. We could find them on the graph in classic spots, but I swear they had lockjaw...

Oh yeah, my 13 year old did pull an accidental 4.5lb largemouth on a spinner rig as well. Dug him down into those thick weeds and a good battle took place on that one.

Oh well, I guess we all need to be given a good dose of humility on occasion... :-)

Yep Paul, especially in August when it gets down to 40 at night and only up to 57 during the day!!!

We didn't make it to Little Pine. A bit more of a hassle on the trip when the wives and kids are along. Dad and I will probably come up to BP in late September or early October for a long weekend and the Little Pine night bite.

How's fishin been for you this year?

Later, Dave

Thanks, I think Whispering Pines has something available until mid October or longer too (not cheap, but it's a pretty nice place)..

Yep, wife's Mom was born & raised in Norway so they're going back (first time in about 15 years) to visit family. I'll be doin' the Mr. Mom thing!!

Oh yeah, talked to Dad tonight and he says if the shoulder hurts too bad he'll reel in those eye's for ya too!!! tongue.gif

Just wondering if there are any new updates out on Star. My wife and I will be making our annual trip up to Ebert's 9/28 until Labor Day. I would really like to get into some walleyes or northerns, since I haven't done too well on either since we've been @ Ebert's, but the panfish almost make up for it...

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!
    • delcecchi
      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck
    • Hoey
      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
