Is summer almost here?

I saw my first billboard for the boat show today.

Please say summer will be here soon.

Hate to say it but we are getting freezing rain and snow and are in a storm watch. So I think you may have to wait a little while longer. I think those boat people are just playing with our minds trying to get that spring itch going. grin.gif

You know that drifty floating place between awake and the coming sleep? - It's always Spring/Summer there, waiting for me to launch, sandals and shorts, not a jet-ski in sight, new line, the kids swear they're really gonna fish this time, and the best Maori chart in 50 years. Visit it every day.

Oh yeah, and when I visit this Spring/Summer place - it's not my 12' alumabeater with a 2horse putter - it's the boat on the billboard!

Robert, Suddenly I hear ya. While ice fishing is ok, open water is my true domain. My lil 80's 14' lund with 20 horse motor may not look like the most attractive thing to most people, but for me it's one of the best things in the world. You can't beat the simplicity and ease of one man operation of it. In my "dream" world a new 17' Boston Whaler might appear once in awhile... but even hearing that ol Johnson fire up is good enough for me.

a tale of woe

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
