There are big pike and muskie in there. It's a really hard lake to fish though because it's deep and clear. I've caught bass out of it, but never a Pike or Muskie. I don't know if others will chime in, but I can tell you to go to Blue Ribbon Bait and talk to Josh. He's got the record tiger-muskie and it came from that lake.

You need a really long cast and often they're in deep water. Chances are that they often see you long before you see them and have probably followed your lure from a long way. Plus if those pleasure boaters would just not be around, your chances increases a lot in hooking into one of them.

Thanks for the info, deep divers seem to be the way to go then ???

Have had lots of success at Elmo in past years. Trolling deep divers 2-8 mph yielded the most fish. Ledgends, Ernies, etc. Mostly Northerns, but also pulled out a 27 inch wally, a tiger about mid 30's inches, and an occasional carp snagging.

The main issue with fishing such a deep lake was reviving fish. most of the fish we caught are suspened in 70 -90 feet, always hitting the lure in the belly, and coming up so fast from those depths affected them greatly. The Pike seemed less "green" and a lot more fragile than that of Minnetonka for instance, possibly becuase of the clear cool water habitat....

    • I have an old DC drake call that is deadly
    • The only form of alternative medicine that I've found to be effective is the use of leeches.  Treatment is fairly simple but almost always effective.  All I do is take the leech, put it on the end of a hook and cast it into a lake.  I start feeling better almost instantly. I've found you need to repeat treatment on a regular basis for best results. 
    • My Sister in Law died of metastatic lung cancer a few years ago.   She didn't know anything was wrong until it had already spread to her bones.    Lung cancer is one that is pretty tough to cure, since it often isn't caught early enough, among other reasons.  In the case of your mother, I would guess that the reason they didn't complete the procedure was that the cancer had already spread (metastasized) to other places, like the other side of the lung or other organs, or bones.   So it was a terminal situation at that point.   Could a more extensive evaluation, PET scans, MRI, etc spared her the surgery?   That is sure a possibility.  Did the surgery have an adverse effect on the course of her disease?  That seems less likely, although the surgery itself surely was a negative thing.    But in all cases, regardless of what the Chiros claim, manipulation of the spine to align subluxations would have done nothing to affect it at all.  Neither would Reiki,  copper bracelets, Laetrile, or an orgone box.  
    • Ha !..not so... Only bait I might fall for is a cold beer, and a chair at the computer.... #SICKHILLARY
    • Go it, I like the surgeons loop.  going to have to give that a try!   Thanks,
    • I guess you weren't watching during the nominating process.  Sure people are getting on board now.  That is irrelevant to my thesis. 
    • Thanks for the suggestion Hawg. The old window was single pane privacy glass, so all it did was let light in. I kind of figured that this will prob frost up and we have a fan that can put on it. The main reason I put it on there is because I didn't like the idea of having a piece of glass in the V on the traffic side.
    • *chuckle* That didn't take long. "What did you use for bait?" A black dude, Hillary, and a cat.
