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

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
