Bouys

2 posts in this topic

This past weekend my fishing buddy and I were up on the pond. We caught some nice picture fish and brought 1 home for eats. We battled the east wind and of course left the rain gear at home. It was a very enjoyable outing (all be it wet towards the end). On our way back to the landing (Cove) though, we noticed that the bouys were not lit at all. It was around 11:00 so it was pretty dark and we strained to see any of the markers. Has this always been the case? If so, with the increased amount of traffic on the lake wouldn't you think they should be lit? confused.gif

cove is very difficult to find in the dark. if theres any wind it only makes it harder. the markers have reflective tape on them but you need a big spotlight... of course if you have a gps and remembered to turn it on at the landing, you just have to follow your trail in. last saturday i noticed the green bouys were not all that green. you can still tell the difference though.

just read the slot report... maybe that will ease the pressure and traffic?

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
