WE ARE GOING UP TO NORTH STAR LAKE ON JULY 23 FOR VACATION, I'M WONDERING IF THERE IS ANY GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE FISHING? WE HAVE HAD GOOD LUCK BEFORE BUT NO RAIN AND WATER LEVELS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. CAN ANYBODY GIVE SOME IDEAS?
THANKS DEAN

WE LIKE TO FISH EYES IF THERE HUNGRY? BUT IT REALLY DOES'NT MATTER. I DON'T REALLY GO FOR NORTHERNS. WHERE IS A GOOD SPOT FOR PAN FISHING? I ALWAYS TAKE THE FAMILLY OUT IN THE EVENING UNTIL THE BUGS SET IN. THEN WE HEAD IN TO DROP OF THE GIRLS,SOMETIMES I WILL GO BACK OUT TO TRY FOR EYES AGAIN.

HEY ESOXMN, WE WERE UP ON NORTH STAR IN JULY AND SEPT LAST YEAR AND SAW SEVERAL MUSKIES THAT HAD TO GO IN THERE 40S. WHILE STAYING AT A RESORT THERE WAS A GUY UP THERE ONLY FISHING FOR THEM AND BOATED THREE FISH 40 PLUS INCHES. NOW I DON'T FISH FOR THEM BUT CAN'T HELP TO THINK WHAT A FIGHT IT WOULD BE.WE LIVE 60 MILES SOUTH OF THE CITIES AND HAVE SEVERAL GOOD LAKES, FRENCH IS ONE. NEVER TRIED IT BUT IT DOES SOUND LIKE A GOOD TIME. NORTH STAR WAS THE FIRST PLACE MY WIFE HAS EVER SEEN A FISH THAT BIG. WE WILL BE BACK UP THERE ON JULY 23 THRU THE 31ST. WE WILL SEE HOW IT GOES AND I'LL POST A REPLY

Cool! thats the resort we are going to on the 23rd of July. Tim and karen are great people. Thanks for the response! Did you get any walleyes? We caught several last year, just off the point straight acrossed from Cedar Point Resort. I was using my camara looking for the devils when I spotted them. I will post when we return on the 31st.

i only got one on thursday night,small though. after all the fun with the northerns and muskie i didn't put alot of time into finding any walleyes. most people at the resort were saying they were also catching them just out from the resort on the end of that long bar and on deep mid lake structure. and yeah youre right tim and karen are very nice people. they should still have my pics lying out the only one they don't have is my 15# muskie but i'm mailing one out tonite. good luck.

      Got out to fish Island lake thursday with the warm temps,,, Lots of traffic on the lake and the fish seemed to cooperate ,,, Our smallest walleye was 13 1/2  so no cigars  for this trip,,,, all on jig and plastics,,, hope to get back out there again next week

      I also have a north facing cabin at the bottom of the hill and I have the Weboost as well.  without it I just barely have reception and with it mounted to the outside of the cabin I can get enough reception for calla and texts (2-3 bars) and slow internet. I plan on mounting it in a tree this spring and should get better reception yet. I paid $399 at best buy for mine about a year ago.

      cg2, Welcome to the forum.   You may try looking at the DNR Lake finder site to look up some of the lakes in your new area for their test results.  Good luck.

      Hello all,   I am new to the area and don't know where to begin fishing. I'm looking for a lake around Mankato that has walleye / crappies in it. I would like to make it out a few times this fall yet and then hit the ice hard. Any advice on what lakes to start with? There's so many that I don't know how to choose which one to go to.

      Gonna try and get out for a bit over the weekend and hit some shore spots. Will post a report if they bite.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.
