ballards' report-

3 posts in this topic

I stopped in at Ballards resort last night to check out the fishing report and a guy was walking across the parking lot from one of there bombers with a large fish. I thought, thats not a bad northern, must be gettting it mounted. I walked in the lodge and they were taking more pictures. the fish was a 42" Lake Trout caught up at garden island. This was amazing!! i would have never believed it if i hadn't seen it. I am sure it will be on there website today or this week. Congrats to that guy!! That there is a once in a lifetime Feat there. I'm still in Awe...

WOW that is one BIG Lake Trout. There is more than 1 'Garden Island' on the LOTW proper. This one was caught near the US side Garden Island I take it? A very rare catch indeed in US waters, the thing musta been lost! Not unheard of though as one was caught off the South Point of Buffalo a few years back but nowhere near that big, that one was a 9 pounder.

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?

      Grindstone is stocked in the spring, I think also in the fall. Many trout survive a 2nd and 3rd year.

      I caught a bunch years ago and they were just fine. Fried hem up back then.  They have a dandy flavor.  I have a bunch more that I froze and will throw some in the peanut oil soon.
