Great weekend

4 posts in this topic

I have to Thank Jerry from Battle River Lodge. We rented 2 sleepers from him for the weekend and he went out of his way to accomidate us a couple of times and checked on us numerous times to see if we needed anything else. Great Guy. As far as the fish we caught 2 pig northerns that went on a rampage pulling down 2 rods and 2 rattle reels on one side of the house 10lb fish but had about a 2-3lb pout in his stomach with the tail still in his mouth, crazy that he would still be going after those lines but he did. The other big boy was outside on a tip up that we had caught a perch and the northern tagged it released the perch once we got him on the ice. caught another 6 perch, 1 15" crappie, 60 walleye. Had a great time thanks again Jerry.

Jerry says "thank you". You were all great guys to work with!

He also asked if you could email the pictures that you have...especially of the notherns (hey, must have been exciting for a bit there!!). You can email them to smisaum@paulbunyan.net We'd appreciate it! Glad you were some of the lucky one's to catch fish or should I say the "skilled one's"? ;\)

      Don't beat yourself up over it at all. I moved several times and you still caught more than I did. Looking forward to this weekend's weather, will not even need a shelter to check depths and move around..... Fingers crossed, I haven't found fish all year. Sure am amazed at the wheelhouses though, absolutely mind numbing the #'s...

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.
