North of Balsam

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys, my bro has a place 10 miles north of Balsam on scenic 7 and was suppose to make it up there this weekend for some deer hunting. with the storm coming opted for next week. Any spearing lakes in that area to make a good combo trip? I only spear 2-4 lbs for pickling. There are alot of lakes in this area, but some/most are boggy/cloudy. Any help? Thanks, Joe

Jig, hey thanks for the info, drive by it and always wonder? Brother has had the place for about 7 years, he's retired now lives there permantly. I'm 300 miles away and so jealous, but I get free stays. We have fished a bunch of lakes in that area, trying to get to know them but most are stained. This will give us a starting point. Thanks.

That can be good, but it's pretty dirty and hard to see. I'd try wabana. Crystal clear and there's some monsters in there, along w/ plenty of 2-10lbers

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
