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.

    •   I'll take them over walleye any day!!!
    • Ya know, it had been a while since I checked in here.  Seems the climate certainly has changed from the days when guys like Dietz Dittrich & Rob Kimm would foster some awesome discussion topics about fishing & the outdoors.  I'm sorry to see what this place has become.     To the guys who offered up honest answers to my inquiry, I thank you.  As for the rest of you, no wonder this once-great forum no longer is.  About the only reply missing to my initial question was, "Hey, you shoulda been here yesterday!"  Have fun liking each other's witty, zany posts, and enjoy the circle-jerk this forum has become.  From the sounds of things, you puds deserve each other.  Enjoy!
    • we have three other ones already.... but of a hoarder I guess lol
    • You guys wanna hear something funny?,  after all this jabber about the Bushmaster I dropped by the gun counter to see what the hell they were. You are right and so was I.....a very inexpensive plastic appliance sorta firearm.  I believe you are all correct it is an adequate weapon and from what I gather very dependable. If I want a simple, inexpensive weapon to repel boarders  I guess it would do so it may well be what the kid is looking for. Funny part is, a new Beretta 92FS left the store with me!  As you already know THAT is a serious and well crafted piece of machinery!! Ha Ha! And no,   I didn't need it. But it is big enough and heavy enough you could beat to death a charging buffalo!
    •   +1.  Any caliber outside of a BB gun will penetrate drywall.    
    • Do a google search of walnut hollow country turkey mount They make nice real wood ones   I ordered mine from them on amazon as it was cheaper on there for some reason They make ones without the picture on it if that's your style
    • Bushmasters are not bad I have shot a couple and they work just fine. Just think of it as a chevy Malibu. Yes there are Camaros and Corvettes out there but they come with a price. If you are just needing to get to work and back the Malibu is just fine if you want to go to the track the corvette is better. I am getting the drift he wants the gun in case you know what hits the fan well in that case the bush master will do. If he wants to do some serious shooting or competition 3 gun or whatever I would suggest otherwise.         As far as the wall penetrating debate Its all hog wash unless you are hitting studs the bullet is going through drywall with the exception of birdshot will stop after a wall or two     
    •   The importation of AKs was banned during the Obama administration, but there were a lot of them imported prior to the ban, so they are still available.  Probably not at big box stores, though.  You would have to shop around, and some of them bring high prices due to the mods made to them.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/banning-russian-made-ak-47s-sets-off-a-us-buying-frenzy/2014/08/31/ad6cbbde-2e0a-11e4-994d-202962a9150c_story.html
