This is an old Native American moniker for he who tells big stories without proof:

Walking Eagle, whose translation means "too full of BLEEP to fly"

The meanings: Some need no explanation, some I won't say, and some I don't want to know.

Stretch

Gee-Wally

Herb

Reverend

Puddy

Smurf

Dutch-Boy

Great White Hope

Chigger-Boy or Chig

And then of course there are the temporary/honorable names

Camp/Cook Boy (The fist guy to shoot a nice buck)

Otis (referring to the drunk on Andy Griffith)

Camp Boy Otis (a camp boy can many times morph into Otis)

Dish boy (someone always forgets to bring a meal)

There are many more....

Man, I can't wait to get up to deer camp.

Don't know that we really have many. I guess my Dad gets called the tracker a lot, because he just likes to follow blood trails & will stay on them even if they're not his, plus he gets bored sitting in the stand.

Everybody pretty much gets called the deerslayer if they shoot a deer or two off their stand opening morning. Right after they congratulate you on your deer & it's drive time they say: "Well you've got your walking papers." That means it's time for you to start getting off some heavy clothes as you probably won't be in a stand again until evening. Nobody usually minds as they're happy they got a deer already.

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip. Cliff & Casey are regular contributors here and members of the Lake Vermilion Guides League.  https://lakevermilionguidesleague.com/.    Good Luck!

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
