You must of got the job because of the way you handled Westy. See , if I didn't light you up, you would have not had the opportunity to mediate the crisis. Congrats big man and good luck. I fully expect that you will be kicking me off the site when the jickies start pounding my metro ice fishing lakes. WEST

Thanks to everyone on here! I'm sorry that I didn't respond earlier...I actually wasn't fishing, but I was doing the next best thing: I was down in Springfield, MO for the holiday weekend and hit up Bass Pro Shop pretty much all day on Saturday! That place is awesome!

Thanks again everyone.

EBass - we are on for Saturday for sure.

BM, Are moderators allowed to fish with Non-moderators? tongue.gif I guess I could just throw your shirt to you as I pass you? wink.gif

Where are you and EBASS fishing? Maybe I'll see you out there.

HT - I'm not sure the exact launch just yet but it's somewhere on the upper stretch (otsego/monti). We haven't gotten much farther than that. When/where are you going to be out on Saturday? Side-note: I checked out jets like yours at BPS in Springfield this weekend! Maybe by next spring!

Maybe we should do a Moderators vs. Non-Moderators this Saturday LOL smile.gif I should do ok just as long as BigLake doesn't steal my fish...oh wait, BLB is a non-mod and would be in your boat grin.gif LOL... you can have'em, just be prepared to watch him pull in the fish you call up on the buzzers - LOL! grin.gif BLB - bring your own TP too smile.gif Totally just kidding - BLB you rock!

Eyeguy it looks like you've got the hang of the smilies wink.gif.

Congrats BigMike,
But I would watch out for that Ebass fella. He has a habit of pulling 20+" bass out of toilets. You kids go and have fun. You probably already know this but, I think the fall is the best season for topwater prop baits. "Heddon Torpedos in frog green is my favorite"

Again Congrats

I might see you guys out there.

Shoot - I knew there was something fishy about it... if only I had the $$$.

HT - maybe you could tow EB & I up river smile.gif LOL. I think we are going to try and the same float trip as the one we did in your boat for the gathering - just launch out of montissippi instead (cause of EB's motor - just a couple sections to slowly navigate vs. a whole stretch!). Are you going to be fishing with anyone on Sat?

I think BLB is going with me. Are you parking a vehicle at Kadler?

The river is up about a foot from last weekend, if you can believe that. That is the first rise I've seen all year. I guess the lakes are getting full and finally letting the river have some of the rain.

HT - you've got mail.

Yes! the water is up... That will really help Ebass & I navigate a little easier on Saturday.

Hopefully it will come down just a tad though before Saturday... higher water makes for a tough & scattered bite sometimes. How was the water clarity?

It looks like a BM/EB vs HT/BLB tourney! The early morning bite was so bad last week, we're planning to meet at Montissippi at 7am. That will give you guys time to meet at Kadler and drive up the Monti. Sound good to you?

Water clarity was dingy, but not too bad.

It looks like it's the "FM Moderators" vs. "
Non-Moderators".

The river rules 3.2.28 clearly state that FM Pro-staff automatically win. And as EB said in his email, 3.2.29 clearly states that all big fish caught by non-moderators are subject to being photographed with either EB & BM one holding the fish (no one disputes a photo smile.gif) No contest... grin.gif.

We'll see you guys down there. EB, we've got to figure out a way to get a tow up river from HT's jet boat! LOL.

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?
    • ANYFISH2
      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck
    • srj
      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.
    • curt quesnell
      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind
    • curt quesnell
      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos
    • certified jumbo
      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.
