Foiles

3 posts in this topic

saw this on the Avery forum and thought that it was a good story to show ya.

I just have a great story to share. Last week an ironworker buddy of mine fell 13 ft off a scissor lift and broke his pelvis and wrist. Unfortunately he is gonna miss the majority of the season. Thats the bad part of the story. The neat part is that as friends we wanted to do something nice for our bud. We put in a call to Jeff Foiles, my buddy's favortie call maker. We found out he was in Canada and decided to email him about having a call made for him, and possibly getting Jeff to give him a call in the hospital. In the email we included out buddy's name and a number where he could be reached. We thought it would be cool if eventually my buddy heard from Foiles. About 3 hours later my buddy called and told us that Jeff Foiles had called him in the hospital and offered to send him a care package to make his healing a little easier. Now I persoanlly think that Jeff Foiles really showed a lot of class and character here. He did more to cheer up our buddy than I would have ever expected. I would like to publicly thank Jeff Foiles for cheering up my buddy during a time he is really bummed out, thanx.

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
