Namakan/Crane over the weekend.

2 posts in this topic

Got back from the Namakan/Crane area this weekend. Caught quite the few little Pikes up in the Crane area mainly on Chartreuse Spinners and Buzzbaits around heavy vegetation. In the Namakan area, we were using Nightcrawlers to catch the Smallies. Quite cold/windy Friday night, but Sat warmed up and was sunny. First time ever up in that area, and I love the feeling. We rented a pontoon from Scott's Bayside Rental and camped at a designated camping site on an island. It's a must to if you haven't recently "roughed" it. Anywho, here are the only two pics I got out of this weekend!

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
