island lake by moose lake

11 posts in this topic

I was there from opener to the 15 with my grandapa. Only fished two or three hours a day. Caught a 41 incher on a jackpot, and had one other miss, but for the most part follows on jerkbaits. Good Luck!

The thickest weeds that I found were around the actual island, the north end by the highway, and some shorelines. They aren't green, but it's thick cabbage. I got the fish on the lakes East side along the shoreline weeds about half an hour from dark.

We were fishing out of a Red Lund Angler with a 40 merc, we talked with one other boat at the landing and they said they saw 5 fish all on one glide bait. The island is usually being pounded, but i did have about a 40 follow twice on the west side of the island. The biggest i saw was about a 47 in 2 fow in a small bay on the SE end. We threw the kitchen sink at her, but she just swam off. THat was the warmest water i saw at 47 degrees.

Sorry about my last post, that is 67 degrees, not 47. That probably was us in the lund. That shoreline to the west of the landing is where we were fishing when there was 2 boats in by shore. We had a follow in 21 fow on a DCG when we were out there. Probably just a high cruiser. Were there 3 guys in your boat, or just 2, because one boat had 2 and one had 3.

No, since there was a couple of other boats on that shore we were going to cut over to that point. Since we've noticed muskies suspend in spring we thought we might as well fish it. We've done some open water trolling this year with no success, but we've caught fish in fall doing that.

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
