While staying at Pine Point Lodge, Resort & Motel, this past week, fishing with a wacky worm, Kelsey caught and released this giant 20" largemouth bass.
I am not sure who was more excited, dad or Kelsey? All I heard was that Dad was scrambling for the net.
Another guest, Doug, reported great walleye fishing. He caught and released a nice 20" walleye using a leech and lindy rig. They also caught several others in the 14" range.
Big northern pike are getting active with most in the deep waters adjacent to shallow bays. Big spinner baits and buck tails seem to be their choice of baits.
Bruce Beste, owner of Cabins on Crane, reported that Jim and Mike from Stacy, MN, caught several Lake Trout, including this 8 pound trout that Mike caught. Most of the fish were caught using a long line (125 feet) with 2 oz chain sinker and blue spoon. A few fish others were caught jigging in 60 feet.
