Was slow last weekend. Two of us got our limit in two days. 13"-16" Sauger and Walleye. Fished 8-5 glued to the flasher. Small flourescent yellow or green with a medium crappie minnow on 4lb test. Shiners and fatheads were not good. Caught 25-30 fish each day. Good luck.

If you are fishing an area with rock on the bottom, I would bring some northland jigging spoons that have the rattle in them. I fish out of arnesons and all the drivers state its the goto lure the past few years and with the water being so cloudy this year the sound should help out alot. I put 2 minnow heads on the spoon and bounce it off the rocks and most of the time you will not see the fish on the vex when they hit since they are right on the bottom. The larger spoons seemed to have worked best for me the past few years. I use a deadstick for the other line and keep it 2 to 4 inches off the bottom. Although I have not been up there yet this year and don't know if this pattern is still working, but will be up there at the end of the month. Hope this helps out and good luck up there.

try a large 2 inch gold buckshot rattle spoon,with a big shiner head hooked through the lips.its like the seccond largest northland makes.some store dispays,they are the largest and some stores do not have them this big,and some even have a size larger, but it is 2 inch.they make a bigger one but havnt tried it.the jig i had has a little green on one edge and a little orange on the other edge and mostly gold in the center.

had an 8 pounder slam one the other mornin like 4 feet up from the bottom.i seen him,reeled up,and he swam right over.left 2 big teethmarks

*give em somethin to look at, and they will swim right over.

**and when u get one to look at your lure, hold it STILL, or it will spook.

use 4 lb line and you shouldnt have any problem feeling bites. keep that rod in your hand.

I don't know fella's, I probably have more lures, spoons, pimples, jigging raps then Carter has pills, but for me, when all else fails, 1/8 oz., or 1/4 oz. fireball jig in orange/chartruese has saved the day more then I can say. Try it on the dead stick, but be ready!! Good fishn', The Bumble

      Funny, my wife and I drove by Big Rice on our way to Grand Rapids. I pointed to the launch and said, somewhere there's an old rotting couch in there, two clowns 🤡🤡 on the forum keep joking each other about pissing on. She said gross! Cuz that's what guys talk about on forums! 😆😅🤣

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      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.
    • delcecchi
      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.
