Two of us went out of Hillman's 7.5 miles straight out Fri 5pm-Sat 10am. Caught 9 Eyes with my brother getting a beautiful 26.5 incher. No crappies. Approx half the fish came on a hook with a green Glow Tube with a sucker minnow, the rest were split between glow red Snake Jig and blue Glow Spoon.

Saturday morning we moved the house. At 6.2 miles a road goes to the right we went 2.3 miles down there. Then went into the big city(Waskish) for lunch and Bloody Marys. Went back out and fished in that spot from 2pm Sat-Sunday 9:30am. Caught a couple really nice perch and 5 Eyes. So it was a little slower there. Did talk to someone who was near there that caught one crappie and did see a big school of crappies on his aquaview but only one biter.

Overall a great trip! Went home with our limit of Eyes and a couple perch.

On our way off the ice Sunday morning we talked to Kelly who was out moving the road and putting out a bridge because of the big crack that went thru the road Saturday night. Thanks Kelly! Hope you didn't have to spend the rest of your day pulling out Foster!

Good Fishing to All!

We can't pick on Foster for a while. Rebuilding that 1/2 mile section of road was brutal. 5 plow trucks, 2 1/2 hours and stuck 25 to 30 times. We left behind banks over 6 feet high in places. Foster never got stuck?!?!?!?!?!?!?! \:oconfused.gifgrin.gif

It's "breaking the bank" around here too but the other way around. Too much time spent pushing snow and too many banks. \:\(

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
