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.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
