Well I fished Pleasant lake over the weekend. The lake has some really good structure. It was really windy so we trolled most of the time. I used tail dancers in the 10-18' water and picked up a lot of Northern no real size the best was only 22'. Also on the weeds caught a lot of Bass 14-19". I did get one Walleye 24.5" trolling the weed edge with #7 tail dancer at 5:00am. I tried a lindy rig on the flats with nothing more than a few small perch. Did try a little pan fishing and caught a few real nice Bluegills but not enough to bother keeping. All in all caught enough fish to keep it interesting. I do think the lake will get much better as it cools off. Also in the spring the Crappie action is supposed to be real good according to the locals. I will probably give it another try in a few weeks. Good Luck!!! let me know how you do.

well I finally got up to pleasant lake over the last long weekend and I am sad to announce that we - make that anybody did not have a rod bending weekend at all. I think that we tried almost everything in our tackle box for any species we thought could live in there - we had all the electronics, structure maps, variety of bait, local knowledge and plenty of time in the boat both day and night but all we could get were small northerns and some small panfish durning the day. But as they always say "A bad day fishing is still better than a good day at work!!"<P>if anybody has any coulda, shoulda, woulda stories let um out I want to know what else we could have tried

      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
