Hey, are you staying at any resort on the lake?
If so you may see me out there around that time. My grandparents have a cabin on that lake so I maybe up there then.
I am in a 2003 (gray) Alumacraft tourny pro with a 140 white 4-stroke Johnson.
Email me and I can give ya some tips- [email protected] .

Its a fun lake to fish once you can figure it out.

And keep those hooks sharp!

Big Eyes,

I am new to the area, but have fished Nest a couple of times this year. Be prepared for WEEDS! Lots of cabbage all the way out to 16-18 feet almost everywhere in the lake.

As far as a report, I didn't spend a whole lot of time, but check the breakline on the West side of the lake, seemed to be the best for me. I will let ya know if I figured it out a little more.

I doubt you are seeing cabbage all the way out that far.

Nest is always choked with coontail/northern milfoil, sometimes so bad you cannot get through it. They even run a weed harvester out there at times.

There are some cabbage beds, but not that thick.

Good luck!

No, there is thick cabbage out to about 6' or 7' deep. Then it is some grass and scattered thin cabbage down to about 14' and grass is out to about 15'. Were I was fishing eyes was at about 16', right outside of the weedline.
I caught a few eyes this rainy weekend. But it was just enought to keep me occupied and not try to much for some pike action.

DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW MUCH THEY HAVE RIPPED UP THE BRIDGE ON NEST FOR ROAD CONSTRUCTION? UNDER THE BRIDGE WAS A GREAT PLACE TO FISH. IF YOU ONLY HAD A FEW HOURS TO FISH, JUST GRAB YOUR RODS AND TACKLE AND HEAD TO THE BRIDGE. BEATS TAKING TIME TO PUT THE BOAT IN AND OUT. I'VE SEEN 10LB+ NORTHERNS, 3LB+ SMALLIES, 4LB+ WALLEYES, AND SOME BIG LARGEMOUTH COME OUT OF THE BRIDGE. DOES ANYONE ALSO KNOW IF IT WILL STILL BE "FISHABLE" WHEN THEY'RE DONE?

LEECH21, First can ya please turn your caps off. Its hard to read.
Second, the bridge is getting done, they got about 65% of it done. I guess it opens October 1st (I think). It looks almost better for fishing wise, theres more room down there! I dont know, as I only can come up to them yellow things fishing, that there is even going to be problem there. It looks nice, Im impressed.

My biggest pike out of nest has been a 16lber. Any my personal biggest eye was a beatiful 6lber but I have seen bigger ones caught.
Otherwise its a lake that you need to learn about. That = lots time spent on the water. After you "figured it out" it can be a easy and great lake to fish. Just like any other lake.

It's been kinda tough the last 3-4 days I have fished steady with not much luck... I have tried different presentations ..leeches, crawlers, minnows, trolling... mostly the weather has screwed things up... actually caught some really nice sunnies along one shoreline yesterday!
trolling for gators have even been tough..water temp this morning was 65' still lots of cabbage weeds ...key thing to rememember is even if the weeds are way out from shore ....you can troll along the inside instead 10-12 ft range

Good Luck

      We also ran into Fisky on the lake as well as at the weigh-in. He is a fun guy to share a boat seat with.....and catches lots of fish big and small. We had a 30 1/4 fairly early but struggled to find 18 - 19 inchers. Or 16 or 17's. We had 1 18 and finally kept two 14 1/2's as the day wound down.  Not getting nice unders was really unexpected. But color us very happy with the results. Good luck

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      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!

      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.
