Quiet on your side

5 posts in this topic

Dave; fished your side of the lake on Friday night, not much going on at your cabin though. The boat was still in the lift and the pontoon tied up also, so that's good news. Not much going on, lots of little fish, but the evening was great. Bill

Bill, sounds like I'm not missing much from not fishing lately. Things kind of slow down in the heat of the summer anyways. Last time I was by your cabin it looked like you've been busy painting and fixing it up. I hope to catch up for lost fishing time this fall, I should be at the lake more then, maybe we'll run into each other. Going to try and get up to LOW late Sept. also, looking forward to that.

Dave

LOW, never fished it during open water. Usually get up 4-5 times on the ice though. You should have a good trip, sounds like they are still catching fish up there.

Ya we resided the cabin in May and enlarged the entry plus all new plumbing and a 50 gallon water heater. Retiring next year June 1 and really wanted all of this out of the way by then. Headed back tomorrow night, will probably have to sit in air conditioning with the weather forecast. Boy we sure could use some rain.

I'm looking forward to the fall as well, sure was decent last year. We'll catch up eventually. Bill

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
