Heading to Star in a couple days to stay at my uncles cabin.  How has the bite been?  Would like to get on some walleyes.  Any advice would be great!  Thanks.

A buddy and I were in a fishing club in Ottertail Co.  We fished Star twice a year.  We usually fished along that road on the south east side.  We used the biggest leeches we could find.  Fishing was real slow.  I had sardines in Lousiana Hot Sauce for snacks.  After I was done eating them I dunked my leech in the oily hot sauce.  The leech wiggled like heck and when I dropped him in the lake it left an oil slick..  I immediately started catching fish.  My buddy who wasn't catching anything except an occasional small northern finally got mad and dipped his leech in my hot sauce and he started catching walleyes too.  Well we won biggest total catch of the night.  We did it on the second outing to Star that year and won biggest total catch that night too.  Noone believed it was from the Hot Sauce.  lol  We fished from 6 pm till 9 pm..

If you fish with rigs and live bait you will catch walters and gills. The gills will be about as heavy as the walters-that should tell you about the size of those 2 species in that lake.------------good luck

    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
