The Northwood just finished up on Marie and what a morning it was. Crappies were big and beautiful, stripers were small, numerous sheep. The bounty was two huge walleyes. The first was an 8 pounder caught in 11 fow on a jig and minnow. The second walleye was 9 pounds caught in 14 fow on a jig and minnow. 25.5 inches and 27 inches long. All fish CPR'd to fight another day. We drifted and the gusty breeze made bait presentation perfect. Needed a little extra weight to keep the bait down. Should be out again tomorrow. Tight lines !

The crew of the Northwood sailed the open seas of Lake Marie Saturday morning from 0700 - 1100 hours. The first hour was slow, but then we found the fish. Drifted 9-14 fow with a small jig, plastic and a small minnow. Crappies are bigger than I have seen in many years. Stripers look big and healthy. Sheep TNTC. Got a couple nice walleyes and a cat. All fish CPR'd. Saw fish being taken by other boats also. If you're not catching fish, you're not fishing ! We'll be out next weekend. Stop and say hi. Tight lines ! IC

The Northwood was out Sunday morning on Lake Marie. It took a little while to find the fish, but when we did WOW! We ran out of bait at 11:15 am. Numerous crappies, stripers and gills. Drifting through 9-14 fow, using a small mini-mite tipped with minnow or waxie. Got some sheep to start, but then they went away. I hope everyone else was having such luck. I have never seen the crappie and striper look better. We worked two poles each and the non-stop action exhausted us. IC

Muskie fishing continues to be good out on the Chain. With the cooler weather coming the bigger fish should start showing up in the shallows at times. The white bass and crappie should start to school up and become very active very soon. Here are a few pics for ya.

Well just got back in town from our Musky Boot Camp held on LOTW. My partner Sean Bermingham and I have put this together and it has been an exciting adventure along with a great learning experience for all of us. A few people landed some muskies over 50" and plenty of other fish between 45-48" were caught. We had some adverse conditions this year that made things tougher but that certainly is fishing. The Musky Boot Camp is held every year in the last week of August. Anyone who is interested is welcome to contact me for more information. It's back to work on the Chain this week. I'll give some reports by the end of the week. Should be a great time of year!

Fished Sunday with Paul water temps reaching the danger zone 80 Degrees, stopped fishing when it reached 80. We had 2 strikes and lost one next to the boat around mid 40's. We ended up boating a 36" Musky. There are days where their shallow and days that their pulled out. Bucktails have been very productive and a few crank bait fish..

A few from this month biggest 45 inches. Smile
