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.

      I don't want nobody "breaking the seal" in my lake--use your empty Mountain Dew bottle  🤔 (But seriously, I hope the DNR isn't so blinded by the AIS lingo in proposal that they don't seen how blatantly and dramatically it will decrease access...   Furthermore, I can't believe every lake-association isn't watching this intently;  ready to file their own versions as soon as they see what the outcome is...)
    • delcecchi
      You get the seal and drive away.   Who will break the seal at minnetonka or Mille Lacs or White Bear or Osakis or whatever?   This is the first I heard of this seal business.  I would certainly be interested in how it is supposed to work.      I can imagine how something like this would possibly work but it would need to be a statewide thing, or even multi state.      Right now, I go to the cleaning station and get inspected and get the seal.    Sometime later I show up at an access and they look at my seal to see if I am allowed to launch.   Is that how it works?    Does the seal have a timestamp?   Is the seal where my boat connects to the trailer, so launching boat automatically breaks it?   Somebody has to break it?     So many questions.... And it isn't even a lake where I go....

      ^^ thats what i thought.  Just needed confirmation.  Here is a picture looking East from Nelson landing Monday 3-25 (Not my picture, stolen from Facebook) Shouldn't be too long now.  It seems to always hang up on the final stretch haha!

      Sort of!!?   Spring hockey practice starts April 8th.  5-6 practices for the month only.  BUT, ...April means the start of Travel and JVL baseball as well.     It is turkey season(scouting anyway),  I can work around athletics!

      I wouldn’t turn it down.  That and another burger stop. 😋     Is hockey done now?

      The water rushing at the falls in Big falls is a yearly occurrence.  No big alarm this time of year.  Big falls is a long ways from the Rainy.   Now, the if the ice capped river builds a up ton of pressure and it has a sudden blowout, that will certainly change things.  The temps forecasted are working in our favor, a nice slow/normal melt.   The Big fork seems to have a lesser impact than the Little Fork.  We should be ok for a couple weeks I HOPE!

      Heard one can see open water from the Nelson (Birchdale) access this afternoon. It is getting close.
    • ANYFISH2
      Gotcha. If you need a scout out this way,  just let me know.   Spotted 6 more this afternoon right near the house.  They usually dont show hear till mid season.
    • Wanderer
      Last year’s spot will likely be my fall back spot, along with maybe checking in at that other place you mentioned before.  The good news is I just heard today the birds appear to be doing well at last year’s spot.   The “new” spot is a property that we seem to have “limited” permission on.
    • ozzie
      one would think the river might be a little tough to fish this time of the year with the current flood situations and raised water levels along the river.
