Bad 4th of July

3 posts in this topic

I had one of the worst 4th of July's in recent memory. My wife and I were out fishing south of wabasha and decided to head in for lunch around 1:00 and on the way in my motor ceased up!! I run a 18ft Nitro with a 150 merc. The problem I am having is I cannot (or anyone I know) find a 2000-2004 135 or 150 optimax to get my boat back up and running. I have people looking all over the metro, up in the range are, and all over wisconsin. It seams people don't trade these in very often. If anyone can help me out I would REALLY APPRECIATE THE HELP. I have a trip planned to go back up to the big pond the last week of this month, pending finding a motor of course. PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU KNOW OF ONE FOR SALE. Again me and my family would really appreciate any help.

Sorry to hear of the bad luck you had. Did you really mean the 4th, or the 13th?

      Got out today and the fish seemed super negative. I was really hoping for raining day bite

      IMO, check with High Banks, they seem to be hithing in perch,  eyes, and a few pike.    They are on FB, and have a good website.

      Hello all, we are planning a trip to the V this year. Never been before. Havent been to MN since 1979, White Iron Chain. We will be after SM, LM and pike, with SM being the main target. I have gone through this whole thread reading all the posts I could find about any of those species. Thanks for all that info. We are looking at a June trip and would like to hit some smallies on the beds. Cpr only. All of our vacations lately have been post spawn, (Lake St Clair MI).      I saw early in the thread Ace saying first 2 weeks of June for the SM spawn. Then a post from a couple of years later asked about the 3rd week of June. Someone else mentioned that time could be pre-spawn to spawn. Just wondering what the last couple of years have been like.    I figure June is gonna be good anytime, but we would want to see if we can time it just right.    We are coming from OH, 14.5 hours. Have our own boat, 16 ft. Pro V  Tracker with a 40 horse. Looking to stay at a place across from Niles Bay. I like the central location and the not so wide open waters as compared to further east.    Any opinions or tips will be greatly appreciated. Hope you guys can get some good ice fishing in! Thanks!
