MOON PHASE (14%)
Fished last Thursday through Saturday. We boated one 40 inch Muskie. We saw a couple big girls but no luck getting them to bite. One was pushing mid 50s. Fished with big cranks for awhile and got some pike, couple walleye, and a smallie. The biggest pike was bout 34. Pretty slow but a good experience to be on this body of water for the first time.
I will be fishing this lake over the weekend with some friends. This will be our first time here. We are targeting Muskie mainly and we have a game plan for that but We'd also like to catch some fish to eat sometime over the weekend. Since walleye is out of the question and it says no live bait I am looking for advice on where to find perch and what to use. In the past I have jigged plastics and been successful in some smaller lakes back in Wisconsin but any advice for this big body would be helpful, Please PM me with any info. If nothing else we will eat some pike but I heard there are some nice perch in these waters and would like to get on some.
Thanks In advance! I will post a report on how the fishing went.
I see any remarks of how messed up the dnr is up here or how tony roach says hes just killing the fish every time out yet voted to keep protecting them,gets deleted. all as long as people are willing to catch and release, then pay to fish a giant protected pond, what does he care.good points are made on here and one is the dnr is making decisions up here and hasnt made one attempt to even count summer fish kill ,actualy count them ,dead fish in summer float,they just use estimates, mean while an indian can net and catch ten a day all summer,and the fish kill doesnt affect them. As much ,so delete the fishermans comments on here and mine again ,the truth and honest comments are what lake link is suppose to protect the public not a few special interest .own a house on this lake and cant keep nothing hardly in five years ,yet go out practicaly anywhere and kill them, all sizes too .this is fact.somethings wrong with the dnr up here.and the public has a right to know ,i have not said anything on this post ever that wasnt true ,yet it just keeps getting deleted .now my rights are being infringed on .and so is the public .peoples rights and thoughts are being deleted on here .

Got out to Mille Lacs for pretty much the last time last Saturday. Fished the mud, we didn't have the luck we have had out here the rest of the year. Between the 3 of us we caught maybe 20 fish, nothing over 22". Fun none the less.
