Burntside 7/29

14 posts in this topic

Trolled 9 hours. 2 releases but ended up 0 for 2. Water temp is way hot. Tried all my old haunts but to no avail. Spoke to two other anglers with the same results. Ah, the dog days. Might try to sneak up to Tofte or Ojib this week after work and poke around up there.

Must have the beast water ready!!!

Chunk, if you hit Ojib take a look at the roller portage into Triangle to see if I could get the 16' up and across. I'm coming out of the BWCA August 23rd, but boat camping around Ely until the 30th. We'll talk this weekend!

Yep, she's all there minus a graph so I was fishing blind but the balls never lie grin.gif . Ojibs roller portage is in great shape. This coming from a frequent visitor of it that I know. Your rig will be no problem at all. I don't think my girl will make it over to triangle though. If I got rid 500 pounds of motor, maybe. See ya this weekend!

Just left some maps on your boat. Didn't know what else to do with them.

      This ice season  has been in the books on the st croix for about a week now. I ended my year out there with a 50" sturgeon.

        What is working for 2 fishing buckets, ion auger & Vexlar for walking out on early/late ice?   Appreciate to hear what works for walking out for a hole hopping Crappie freak

      I have been busy with Work ... went down to check it out North access this morning.  Definitely good enough to walk out.  a tall guy walked a big sled right out.  was also a clam 2 seater pull over out on the ice.  The wind however is blowing very cold!  I do not have a sled for walking out ... so hoping for ATV ice soon!  I went searching at Princeton Wallmart if they had any leftover sleds, no go.  Will have to pick one up this week.   Bob
