That is a good looking yellow lab, I like that he has a black nose.

Do yellow labs keep the color of their noses?

Sorry i am used to huskys, their nose always turns a pinkish or a pink streak.. I did look a lot up about yellow labs for 2 years before i got Hunter and i read somewhere about pink noses are lacking pigmentation, so i been hoping his stays black lol

His looks like his nose is going to stay black. If people are looking for a yellow to be a show dog, the black nose is one of the things they will look for.

Looks like with the donations coming in from great people, I will again be attending the Bash. Thats if Steve will allow me to attend.

This time Steve I'm going for the biggest laker.

Thanks Kallista. cool.gif

Lakers, Tom? Were you fishing lakers last year? I could've sworn that was a smelt you caught. Biggest darn smelt ever reported in Burntside, too, Must've been all of 9 inches. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Well, Kalli, it's a rare smelt on Burntside that gets to 9 inches these days. Most are from 3 to 5 because they're stunted. That makes Tom's 9-incher a bona fide Burntside trophy far less common than a 15-lb laker. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

It's alright. This is just how we start working up enthusiasm for the fabled Bash. Kinda like trash talk before Vikings/Packers games. Uh, Tom, are you a Vikings fan, by chance? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I'll keep tabs on a coupla big ones for ya, Skippers Kid. It was Frank's turn last time. Your turn this time. I've got a 12 with your name on it. I saw it swimming around in July. It had "Tom's Trout" written on its side.

C'mon Steve, set a date so we can book a whole motel this year! It also gives the wabbit time to prepare.

I need to top last years as well.

I was talking to the misses just this week whether she wants to go up and catch more lakers. I think the one she caught last year on the first day got her intrigued.

The second day got her cold.

As for B-side smelt, here's a nice 5"er

Steve ole boy, I use to be a Queen fan but the last few years its hard to even listen to them. As far as the lakers go, I'm sure my smallest laker would have maybe had a small treat at best eating yours and thats if you even get that lucky and snag one. Northlander showed me where to catch the big Girls but I didnt want to show you up my first year.

Sorry but this year I'm going for the jugler.

Gang, the bash already has been set for Jan. 26. Cheffrey, nice smelt! grin.gif

Harvey, I hope you have some great luck this year. The smelt are really thick. If you're relying on Northlander for laker advice and locations you're in trouble. grin.gifgrin.gif

Steve

Please feel free to e-mail me your GPS cords for the better spots anytime. Thats probably worth at least a couple beers at the Wabbit.

Thank you SIR.

I think I'm going to have to try to make it this infamous Burntside Bash! I'm not super knowledgeable on lakers tho-so start sharing the secrets Ok? I do have a couple airplane jigs??!! Kalli, I want to snuggle that little Hunter of yours! I guess I'll have to wait to January right?

Lisa, you sure can get by with standard medium walleye tackle and walleye-sized lures on Burntside for lakers.

Meanwhile, look here. And using the search feature for the many other threads on winter inland laker fishing over the last few years will gain you more knowledge yet, since we've been discussing this at some length for the past four or five winters or so. Lots of great info scattered around.

And, of course, there'll be more to come as the Bash approaches. grin.gif

Well, it sounds like this is quite a get together. Guess I'll have to put it on the calendar. You let Finlanders into the bash, right?

Ken, what would a winter laker Bash be without Finlanders? That's like trying to do a road trip without gassing up. grin.gif

Lisa.. Hunter would love that..

Ken, i am Scottish and German and they let me in LOL

Nice to have a few with you all. Just watch out for that pole in the parking lot at the Wabbit when backing up LOL

I just moved back to Ely, so i am lacking winter fishing things.. I spent the last 4 years in phz az at mayo clinic there, so i don't even have a winter coat yet...lol

But next year..i will be fishing and catching all the big lakers.. I have 10 years on that lake, and now i need to re learn that lake.. Think i might have time over the summer.

But i will be there cheering you all on, and teasing you on the small catches lol...

Kalli,Tami,Hunter's Mommy,Whatever name you go by these days wink.gif(you really need to post why you chose your name under EXPLAIN YOUR NAME),

I am getting really pumped to meet all you FM'ers. I met a couple last spring at the Swap in Saginaw but I was only there for a few minutes. Now I just have to get a couple of things at Gander. I have already started buying some ice jigs. I bought something I haven't seen before called a Tiger Eye-The Original Glowing Glass Jig-they should work great but probably not on Burntside.

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
