Paul,

Sounds and looks like the night you e-mailed me last Sept when there was a post on 6ft waves, and you were out trolling cranks.

Go get 'em!!!!

Paul,

looks like you'll need help leveling the dock this weekend smile.gif

I would be casting Raps off the dock, the fish must all be washed up there.

Later,

Kevin

cool pics! i love big waves! i would be the one sitting out on the doc, in that open seat, watching & thinking...

is that your boat paul? ive only seen it once at night. its a nice boat lift and the way the boat is on it makes the most sense. you dont see many boats on lifts bow to the lake. the wind will only be bad coming from the direction it is in the pictures. it can blow all it wants from other directions because of the land protection. even in worse case scenarios like the pictures, you still can get the boat on it providing its deep enough to drive around. if not im sure you do just fine improvising... ;-)

so, in the dark, if the wind is still blowing, someone might do just great casting shad raps or jigs & minnows or ... off that dock!

regards,

minnesoatatuff

I would assume that the reason you have an open seat is because the other guy fell out and drown in the waves? Just kidding. Looks like fun. Do you think my 14 footer will make it out there?

Here are a couple quick questions that ran through my mind. Are we going to be back trolling? Where is my life jacket? I hope you have about 6 drift socks. I want to know where the Kayak came from....the other side of the lake? How is the Undertow?

Guys,

The wind just continues to blow!!!

Thanks for all of the responses. When it gets that brutal outside there's not a lot else that you can do other than watch the sand pile in on our resort burying the grass frown.gif

Paul,

Have you heard any forecasts for the weekend? I am planning to be up on the pond fishing and if there is much wind, I will need to stay close in to the calm side. 14 footer with a 15. The boat has been on the lake before and I am very comfortable running it, but not if it gets really bad.

Thanks,

Tom

Tom,

If it was me I would be launching out of Garrison and staying close to the NW side of the lake as it looks like it is going to blow for a few more days.

        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,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

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