7th Place aint bad

4 posts in this topic

My fishing partner actually caught the fish, but he is only 19 and the guide can't catch them all. Not bad though for a couple new guys to Island Lake. Thanks for the tips Loonasea. Steve, we talked about sublte and slow, I went bigger and deeper as I said on thephone. It paid off. 5.5 lbs 25". Now I wonder if I won any door prizes.

Wade, Congrats to you and your fishing partner.

You didn't win any door prizes, Northlander got most of them. grin.gif

Actually we ended up 6th. When we went to FC today to pick up the check, I noticed that 6th place fish was 5lbs 4 oz, My partners was 5lbs 5oz. I asked Scott, "whats up here?" he looked at it, called some woman, and POOF, He is now 6th, and 50 bucks richer.

Scott tells me there were a few trinkets left that Steve didn't get.

I won a fish towel and my wife won a fillet system and towel. She was real impressed. tongue.gif

All the other prizes went to co-workers who purchased tickets from me but werent at the weigh in.

Congrats Wade and partner. Right place at the right time I guess. We were in the wrong place all the time I guess. confused.gif

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
