Fished the reefs a mile or so out of MyrMar Monday evening thru Wed. night with very disappointing results. Saw about 15 to 20 walleyes on the rock reefs but could not coax a single one. Hundreds of dink perch on the camera, caught a few 9 inchers. All in all, 2 guys fished about 30 hours and managed to haul in 3 perch, 1 pout and no walleyes. Very tough.

Fished near sloppy joes from wednesday at 1 PM til today at 1 PM. We rented a house from Brandts. I was pretty happy with the house and the price. The walleye were there but did not want to bite. We managed to keep one walleye and about 8 perch and released a bunch of perch between 7-9" and to pout. Small shiners were definately the way to go.

We were also on the lake Wednesday and Thursday with poor results. Fished SW side Wed. with only a couple perch, but we had fun landing a monster pike. Thur. we fished for deep jumbos on the east side and landed five, but we really had to work for them. The noisy popping, cracking and groaning ice may have spooked the fish. A large pressure ridge formed against the shore line while we were out forcing us to use a resort bridge. Not one of our better outings, but still great to be on the pond.

I fished the flats Thurday afternoon and evening out of Red Door Resort. I found plenty of good solid ice (18"+) but couldn't find any takers. I fished from about 3 to 7 with one bite!

My dad and I were out from tuesday afternoon thru thursday morning. Fishing was tough though. We started out on the south end on tuesday evening and got skunked. Then on wednesday we headed for the west side of the lake. Went on at terrys and fished on northeast finger of shermans flat. Got 1 16" walleye there during the day and then started moving around. We ended up finding the fish at 4:30p.m. but they were very tough to get to bite. Ended up getting a 24" and a 18" and we lost a few. Lot of fish on the graph but would just come up to the hook and not hit. Got the 24" on a silver buckshot about 5' off the bottom. We were in 22' of water out on a mud flat. Not gonna say which one cuz there was no one else there. Heading back up on tuesday. Maybe they will cooperate a little better this coming week.

      Lake Osakis is a good lake with a few good resorts.. that can a an option for you...  it has the small mouth bass and sunnies you want...  but it's not way up north as you might want..

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
