Lake: Fishtrap

Dates: 9/6-9/11/2021

Group Name: Schroeder

Guest Comments: Bass fantastic off rock walls with weeds and submerged rocks. Rapala's very successful.  Largest was 20". Pike decent to good - largest was 30". Great place - Thanks!

Lake: Highrock

Dates: 9/6-9/10/2021

Group Name: Stolle

Guest Comments: Great trip even though we had to "dodge" some rain and thunderstorms most of the week.  Walleyes were plentiful on jigs and minnows in 15-20 feet of water.  Largest was a 28" walleye, caught on the last day at the end of a rocky point at the 24 foot mark. We also (unintentionally) caught some good sized Northerns and 3 Huge smallmouths while fishing for walleyes.  The cabin is one of the best, and has held up well over the past 7 years. The new covered barbeque area right next to the deck allowed us to cook in the rain just fine.  Trevor is the best pilot we have had in our many years of fly-ins, and was able to safely negotiate a fogged-in lake on the way there.  Food pack was great and Lucas and Nicole managed every detail of our trip flawlessly as usual! We'll be back next year!

Lake: Eric

Dates: 9/3-9/8/2021

Lake: Highrock

Dates: 9/3-9/6/2021

Group Name: Golden

Guest Comments: Bass were concentrated around the humps out from the cabin. Lots of walleye on the far East end off the rocky points. Spinners and crawlers / minnows worked best. The bigger walleye were in the deeper water, 13-20'. Biggest walleye were in the deeper holes. Narrow passes seemed to hold fish. Upper Highrock held some big northerns, multiples over 30", under water structure always holds fish. Lots of fun! Can't wait to come back!

Lake: Eric

Dates: 8/29-9/4/2021

Group Name: Robbins

Guest Comments: Another great trip with GNO. I was wonderful seeing Lucas, Nicole, Hunter, and Trevor again, after 2 long years. Fished Eric Lake. It is smaller, but just as picturesque. We caught more fish than ever, and with the greatest ease. Because of the size of the lake, the fish are easier to locate and stay with. And, during our 5 days anyway, they were aggressive. The walleye are numerous. Only problem is their size. They tend to be too large. 22” to 25” galore (not really a complaint).We didn’t much target bass, but
caught dozens and dozens on walleye jigs. Very few were under 17 inches.  They’re monsters.  No big northern, but we didn’t care and didn’t try very hard. The walleye and bass fishing was just too productive to turn away from. As always, the appliances, boats and motors, and generator worked flawlessly. Cabin clean and well equipped. The fish cleaning shed and grilling/frying shed are wonderful additions. Trumpeter swans, grouse, eagles, beavers, and otters all alive and well. Can’t wait til next year. Thanks to the Adams, again, for what is always the best week of every year.
