Doop

cancelled

5 posts in this topic

I had been planning a trip with 6 of my closest friends to LOTW.

We were scheduled to be up there March 7-12th. Tip up fishing for big jacks.

My step-dad has had cancer for a very long time and in the past 5 days, the cancer has taken over his body. Hospice will be coming in tomorrow to make him as comfortable as possible.

He and my mom live in Iowa and I'm stuck down here in Texas. That makes it so much harder.

So to all of you on the ice....enjoy yourself and good luck!

Thanks Fisky for the help you gave!

Sorry to hear of this Doop, I will do my best to catch a few in your honor. I will be up there March 13th - 17th.

I feel what you are going through. We had to bury my father in-law today. I have lived next door to him for the last 13 years of my life and he too has battled cancer for the last 4 years. He passed this Tuesday evening with my wife and her mother at his side. Hospice has to be one of the most incredible services in the world. What wonderful people. You are in my thoughts and I hope your father can rest in peace.

Sorry to hear that as well. Went through that process with my mother-in-law about five years ago & a good friend a few years before that. It's a nasty disease that we're all impacted by in some way sooner or later. You & your family will be in our prayers.

      Made it out to North Center today by sunken island. Not very good, one perch. Marking them just not committing. Lots of water on ice, but ice is fine. 17 inches.    As far as north access, off Nelson road on east side there is an access. Put money in the box and don't be a Richard, I believe it is owned by a farmer and let's people use

      Lake St Clair is a blast. If you hit vermilion at the right time it will be right up there with that. No reason you can't have a 100 fish day with a good chance at many big fish. Going by my phone pictures I had a great day on June 17 a few years back ha. Theres no shortage of rocky shorelines and docks. I'm a fan of tubes myself but I know guys love their senkos.    I'm sure you'll get some more specific responses. Wish I had more time to chase them myself
