From what I"ve heard from a couple of my buddies sarah has been pretty slow....or maybe they just dont know how to fish..lol. I heard that the only fish caught today for thier derby was an 8" walleye. On the other hand, ya dont know til ya try. I am thinking of just keeping my house on shetek.

I'm thinkin we should hit the north side of Shetek. Some neighbors of mine were at the derby on Sarah over the weekend and didn't catch anything. However, we all know fishing Sarah you have to be mobile and with the weather they just drilled and hunkered down.

Sarah will give you nice perch, walleye, and crappies. Shetek will do the same. However, I'm thinking the bite on Sheteks north side is going better than Sarah's is right now.

I'm not stubborn, just ask my wife. grin.gif I'll go where the group decides. I vote for Shetek.

just pulled Shetek up on the lake master maps. The north end is big. Is there a boat landing up there? if so from the landing which way?

I don't know if I'd call it a landing, it's where everyone gets on the lake, tho.

Look at the absolute most north end, that's where we drive on. From there it's kinda nice cuz you can fish Teepeota point, the inlet, or no mans land and still get fish.

I can give you directions, but it's real hard to write them down, just ask CCFC. grin.gif Drop me an e-mail, I'll give you my phone # and I can give you a call.

Take the 2nd left after the 4th right, then head north for 1/2 mile.... when you get there, go south another 1/4 mile, whip a louey, go back 32 feet, turn left and then head east till you get to that one sign, yep that is it, the sign that says you are here! You know here, the place from where you started without knowing where it was. Yeah, that's right, just down the road from Whatyamajigger lane, and kiddie korner from Ummm Boulevard, and close to there.

Do you know where the Lutheran church is.....? Ok, yeah, it's nowhere near that.

hehehehehehe. He will get you there.

Main body of the north end. The long arm you are looking at is what we call "The Inlet."

If you try to call, I can't have my cell phone on at work. You can reach me at home, or on my cell anytime after 6-ish or so. Or you can go the old fashioned route and shoot me an e-mail.

I'll be there Friday after work and plan on spending all day Saturday out there. I doubt I'll have my shack out there, just my porty. This is all pending on the Mrs, however. If she comes I'll prolly be bringing the shack.

Friday is out the question and i'll be lucky to not be working Saturday the way things have been going around here. Another Saturday on Shetek could possibly be on my to do list but I haven't been to Iowa for 8 days and counting I am starting to have withdrawals I would hate to lose my touch.

BG - thanks for the directions and info! I love dealing with engineers, they're accurate and sooo detailed. grin.gif

My fishing buddy is an engineer, he's great at putting us on fish and meticulous doing it, - a virtue and a vise \:\/

I'll see ya when you get there. I'll also have a 2way radio, on channel 7. I'll be in the area you told me about, unless the fish aren't there \:\/ and then I'll be off looking for the fishies grin.gif

Anyone else - if you have a radio bring that - channel 7. Look for a wheeler with a Fish Trap Pro, and me in a tie died sweatshirt, can't miss me. I should be on the lake fri by 9:30 am

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
