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?

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
