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.

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
