Fishing with Jonny P July 8th

8 posts in this topic

Sorry for the late report. I headed up to Red Lake before Moondance Jam to get in a little guide trip with Jonny P. And once again it was the same ol' story...huge Pike! We casted for Northerns on some of the weed lines and ended up with 2 Trophy class Pike just under 40". Both fish were released to fight another day. Later on in the day we found ourselves a nice little hole for some wallys and ended up with our limit or eaters which West Winds cooked up for us, AWESOME. The water was a little rough that day and I ended up losing my lunch over the boat, which I am sure Ill never hear the end of it from Kelly and Jonny. Thanks again Jonny for the awesome experience and for teaching this rookie how to use a bait caster. If any of you reading the forum are thinking about booking a trip, stop thinking and do it. You will not regret and make sure you bring the camera for all those monster Pike.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
