Big Marine or Bald Eagle?

Recommended Posts

I need to find some fish, i am getting up early tomorrow and would really like to try out my new H20 w/lakemaster chip. I have been fishing Phalen almost exclusively this year so far because its close but have had very little luck. Any thoughts of which of these lakes would give me my best chances to get on fish (walleye or crappie) I have limited experience with either lake and am planning an early morning trip and spending most of the day. Also keep in mind I will be walking but am very motivated. Any tips or thoughts would be greatly appreciated, Feel free to e-mail at [email protected]

So you are giving up on Phalen? I am heading over to Bald Eagle tommorrow. You will find fish on BE. The size may be a little shaky but you will find fish. Maybe I will run into you over there. Enjoy the chip, it is awesome smile.gif

Was out on bald eagle last night and we must have caught 100+ crappies. Didn't keep any because I didn't feel like cleaning fish but man what a blast. Out off the island in about 35 feet of water.

Hey Guys, Well i went to Bald Eagle and you were right I did finally find fish, Pulled in probably 30 Crappies, Most 7"-8" but did manage a couple 9"s and a 10". Had a blast, Didn't see ya metro but maybe tomorrow. The pull out was quite the workout but worth the trouble. Thanks guys

I won't steer anyone wrong because one day I may be looking for a new spot and hopefully someone helps me out. Glad ya had a good time. I was out on friday night with 3 buddies and we must have caught 100+ crappies AGAIN. Didn't keep anything cause it was just fun to fish. DNR and Sherrif was out in full force on the lake.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
