Long Tonight

3 posts in this topic

Guided on Long tonight for a father and his two boys (8 and 11). Both boys caught their first walleyes as well as a pile of nice bass. We caught all are fish tonight on crawlers in 15 to 17 feet of water. I worked wind swept inside turns all evening, the bite was pretty good and i think may have got a few boys hooked on the outdoors which is a definite plus for the sport. Jonah

Well, as the father mentioned in Jonah's post, let me start by saying that Jonah is an awesome guide! Me and my two oldest boys (I left the 5 yr old back at the cabin with my wife) had a great time that night. Better yet, we were able to take the knowledge gained that night and use it the rest of the week to have even more success on Long Lake. My oldest son pulled in a 19" smallmouth later in the week.

Jonah is also right -- he helped get my boys totally hooked on fishing. They have "demanded" I trade in my 18' runabout for a fishing boat!

Thanks again Jonah!

        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
