Now that the 05' season is over for walleye and pike, what was your "trophy" fish for the season? Got some nice eyes on Blackduck this year, but not like some of the big ones that were caught and released on Upper Red, but had some guests that reeled in some 23"-26" walleye (and some of those 7 plus pound sheephead made for some activity). And the monster pike didn't make it in the boat, but the largest pike that came through here was 41". Reeled in a couple 11" sunnies and a few 13" plump perch that were pretty impressive.

This is a great topic. Lets hear from the viewers of the forum. I had a pretty good year in the area. The biggest northern this year was a 46"er. The year before we caught a 44" northern. We also caught a lot of northerns around the 38"-41". We also caught a few walleyes around the 28" mark. The biggest perch was this winter at 13.5". My girlfriend also caught a 7lb sheephead this past summer.

This past year was a good fishing season. Hopefully this year will be better yet!

Good luck to everyone in the 06' season!

46"..now that's a monster pike. Any idea what the weight on that was?

Drake,

My scale only goes to 20lbs. It was over that by quite a few. It was a real chunky fish. I must be a little computer disfunctional, because I can't seem to put the picture up on the site. I may have to stop by and have you put it on here for me...

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
