We have been out to Bald eagle and have been doing well, a lot of ski's in the 45-48 range. Has antbody seen them over 50 out of there at all?

I had one on last Monday that had to be 50. i released a 40 earlier in the day and this one was in a totally different class. That said I've never caught a 50 - biggest so far is 44 so it may have really only been 44.5... smile

I've been out chasing on BE 4 times in the last week and got one follow from a real small guy. I must be doing something wrong.

No expert here but the fish I've seen have been deeper than normal - 10+ FOW - which is deeper than I've fished on that lake most years.

You're right on - 10 feet certainly isn't deep. I'm guessing its how I fish the lake, or maybe because of pressure I've changed things up a bit, but in the past 3 or 4 years I've contacted 80% of the fish in less than 5 feet on that lake. I also tend to get out pretty darn early as well - until I can get a jet-skier or wake-boarder to hit a Jackpot I tend to get off BE by about 9AM on weekends.

I had a 50-52 incher boatside earlier this year, but was bass fishing and it ended up snapping my line. I'm willing to go out to BE with someone and show them what seems to be working. My in-laws live right on BE, so they usually have an idea.

KingFisher1 - My in-laws live there too. Due West of the rock pile - 1st place on the north end of the lilly pads. Any chance they're neighbors?

If you're still offering I'd love to go out. I live in Roseville and bought a new boat this year so I spend most of my time on BE still. I've chased a little on WBL and FL but for overall fishing I still like BE.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
