Guppy~Sorry for not posting back to you sooner, things have been a little busy around here lately! As far as Moose Lake, we haven't hit it lately, when we have had a chance to get out we've hit Blackduck Lake. Had some folks who went over to Moose last weekend, but they were unable to find the access. The last report that I have on Moose for the gills is fishing off the weedline (and out to 15'), across from the access and over to the right (right before the lake curves around). The northern bite was pretty good in that area for some of our folks in that area too. Hope to hit Moose in the next week or two ourselves.

Pimuche hasn't been hit in the last couple of weeks. Our folks that have previously done well on bluegills have fished the far north end and near an eagles nest. We do have some folks who are at South Twin right now where they did well a couple of weeks ago on different panfish that were REAL nice size ones.
Will let you know how they do and if we make it out to Moose in the next few days.

Has anyone else out there hit either of these two lakes in the last week or two that can give Guppy a more definite starting point?

Hey Guppy~South Twin produced a nice batch of bluegills today, as well as a bass. Not quite the pounders as a couple of weeks ago, but some that were really nice. Trolling along the weedline (out from the landing on the left shore)with nightcrawlers.

I fished Moose twice over the 4th of July weekend and did OK. Was primarily walleye fishing, but wasn't able to coax any into biting. Caught 4-5 smaller northerns each time out though. They were fun until they broke my live bait rigs! I broke a total of 5 in 10 hours or so of fishing. Found a few crapies next to the deep reed line located north of the sunken island each night around dusk. Overall, very pleasant fishing. So can anyone tell me how to consistently catch walleyes on Moose?

Mortsintoit. Are you talking about the Moose east of Island lake or the Bigger moose South of there.

Both Moose lakes have very nice walleyes, Crappies, Sunfish, and northerns in there. I concentrate my efforts on the moose next to Island lake.

I guess either lake has a lot of the same structure in it. Walleyes in little moose like the sunken Island and the drop offs. Usually in the past this time of year a Yellow Spinner with a crawler was the only thing I could catch walleyes on. Its worth a try. If that doesn't work, Try a lindy with a very long snell. And an 1/8th oz. weight. tipped with a leech.
I hope this helps you.
Good Luck.

Kupcho: I was referring to the Moose Lake just east of Island Lake by Northome. I too have had luck by the sunken island, the outlet, and some of the sand bars that extend off the points. Given the clear water and time of year, I think I should have spent more time fishing deeper, as most of my time was spent around 20 feet or less. Thanks for the tips!

mortsintoit, Try working from the edge of the sunken Island from 33 feet up the edge. And try around the whole Island. This seems to work for the walleyes out there. Slip bobber fishing for them works pretty well too. Just a couple more Ideas for you.
Good luck.

      Thanks, I'm riding this now "TW200 pictuer wouldn't post" so not sure I can get on any of the ATV trails. Might have to sled by in the winter! 👍

      There are actually 3 tree carvings on the trail from Soudan to Ely.  I saw 2 of them but missed the 3rd.  I believe that trail is the Prospector Trail #4 or #6.  You have to start from the parking lot on the Murray Road 2 miles past Soudan since several property owners on the old railroad bed didn't allow off-road vehicles on their properties.  Another option is to travel from Tower to Embarrass then on to Ely, but that adds a couple hours to the trip.

      I've seen that caving on a few web pages. What trail is that on?  It would be cool to ride by. 👍

      The colors are getting good. Beautiful time of year. Maples are full red and birch and aspen are going too.  I’m not finding a formula for walleyes. Best luck when fishing saddles and shoreline drop offs 10’ down to 20’. I’m using old crawlers, too, because a) it’s hard to find minnows although Northwoods in Cook has them and b) it’s been too warm to keep them alive.  We do have a change in weather happening right now. Wind is coming up and the temperature is dropping. It’s going to be hard to fish Saturday through Monday but the change could be good after that.  Good luck, you’ll need some. They are out there and you’ll get dinner but you’ll have to work for them. RLG

      Thank you. Yes, weather does look sketchy but we'll make the best of it. Looking forward to the colors and just getting away.

      Some more heavily fished lakes are tough ALL season.  Lake Minnetonka and Mille Lacs come to mind.  The water is clear, there are tournaments all the time, and the fish are not easy to catch.   That is why I focus my efforts on lakes with less pressure.

      Was up Tuesday and Wednesday this week for a UHV ride to Ely.  Made it out fishing for a few hours those days.  Walleye bite for me was fairly slow but I was only using leftover crawlers.  Most others I saw were using minnows so maybe they were having better luck.  Fall colors should be at peak on Vermilion.  Weather doesn't look the greatest however. Good luck and enjoy the fall season on the lake.
