Brian....can we book you during the week of 8/5?

10 posts in this topic

Hey Mr. Jones,

We'll be up the week of August 5th. The family, Brad and Monica, and Mike Marra..........I think little Jimmy is ready for a half day trip. Can we book you for a half day for walleye or panfish?

Let me know what's available. Also....I want to rent a pontoon (nice one) for a few days. Any suggestions?

Commanche,

Talk to Bill and Lois or Ron their son at Wishbone Resort. They have two pontoon boats that they rent. Tell them I sent you. Not sure if they rent to non Wishbone people but I can't see why not. I will be up there from July 21st thru Aug 5th. Let me know if you want to do a half day with Brian and we can split it. Muskie, walleye, northern whatever is ok by me. I think it would be fun to get the three of us in Brians boat. We could overload him with White Sox banter, though this year is not much to speak of. We can relive 05 for about 5 hours with him, that would drive him nuts. I shot you an email at the restaurant so give me a shout if you are interested.

Windy,

We already rented one from Stony Point.....I called Wishbone to ask if we could rent one and they said a firm "No, we don't do that!" I reminded him that we rented one from him last year for a full week......but he didn't want to hear it. To be honest, I wouldn't ever stop in there again after the way they talked to me. It wasn't Ron, but whoever answered the phone wouldn't budge.

Anyhow, are you leaving on the 5th? We won't be arriving until the 5th, probably later in the afternoon.

Shoot me an email if you want.

CJ,

I'm almost positive Steve at Break on the Lake will rent one to you... even if you don't have a cabin from them. They have 3 for rent in varying degrees of nice, from really nice to O.K.... I don't know how their rates vary with each craft. Give him a call. Also he is renting 2 houseboats this year... water slide, grill, kitchen and biffy... may be a good way to burn a day with a large group. I'm thinking a big group parked over some shallow structure slip bobber fishing through the night while grilling chow and having fun... kinda like a private launch...

Good Luck!

Ken

Thanks LABS4ME.....

We're actually staying on Break on the Lake. I thought they only had 1 pontoon, but was kind of small. I'll have to call Steve and inquire. What are the houseboats like?

Thanks!!!!!!

Well Jim, look me up! My cabin is right behind B.O.T.L.'s #10 and #11! We'll have a cold one together.

Steve has an agreement with 2 of the seasonal owners to use their pontoon boats... both are pretty darn nice!

The house boats are newer... they are nice! 90 hp Mercs, Small kitchen, bunks table/booth, AC, water slide and a huge sundeck on top, I think it'd be a hoot to rent for a day and night and to be able to fish all night while "camping"! Of course it'd have to be somewhat calm so you'd be able to anchor, but they are available most days as they are new for him to rent out.

Good Luck!

Ken

Hey Ken,

We'll have some cocktails when we come up. I called BOTL and I'm waiting to hear back on the availability of the pontoons and houseboats. What would you think about getting a few guys together (including Mr. Jones, and 2 of the guys I'm coming up with) and use the houseboat overnight, mix some cocktails, and try to catch some fish.

My wife is very interested in using it during the day with the kids.........then we could try it out at night?

I've had some decent luck at night, right Brian??????

I could be up for that... we talked about that very subject last weekend. Anchor on a spot like Deadman's and lighted bobber fish, a couple cocktails and some smart talking... Could be fun!!! Let me know as you dial it in...

Good Luck!

Ken

I didn't stick around for the night bite but found lots of willng eyes during the day.

Ken feel free to give me a call and I could point you towards a few spots. It might be different but I'm guessing these spots could still be good.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL  
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
