Big hard drifts with a sharp edge on the SE sides.

Like Kelly said great if you are heading South East, fairly tough in any other direction.

Up down over stick the skis in a drift dig out, up down over stick the skis in a drift dig out over and over again. Some poor soul yesterday stopped and talked and was hating life, said his arms where sore after the ride and was scared to look in his portable.

Jonny, the only thing to remember is "When in dought, throttle it out!!" Then you won't get stuck. The fish house might take a beating though.

So what is the best way to get around, Can you drive around off the road with the truck or how about the fourwheeler. What is the best way to get around these days?

good luck with the truck. bring a sled and just run respectively, don't let these guys scare you. it's like sledding out in the middle of nowhere anywhere esle in the state during the cold, wicked, dead of winter!!! take your time and use your head before making a decision up there. good luck fishin!!!!!!!!!!!

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
