Well here it is...Hooked up with a couple FMer's staying at fishmeisters cabin and went fishing for six hours on Tuesday. It went well, unfortunately we were constantly on the chase for some bigger fish. Found two good spots, one of which was loaded with 'eyes where a mud line met up with the rock, all the fish there were at biggest 12"-12 1/4" went out to another spot on an Island and Northlander hooked up with a nice 20-21" Moved and graphed a couple more spots with nothing on them, and went out into sand bay, where we found some 'eyes, but again small, with the exception of a couple.

That evening I went out with my dad after some crappies, we ended up catching and releasing 20-25 decent crappies, with a couple around 12" and two pushing 14". Found the fish in 30' of water, Northland Slupies were working best.

Wednesday 8-16, didn't make it out to Fishmeisters cabin in time to fish with Steve and Randy, I ended up going after crappies in Redgut, found a large school and ended up keeping my 10 with a combined weight on almost 16lbs!! A few fish pushed two, with the average being 1 1/2 lbs. Found them in 26-32' feet of water suspended four to sixteen feet off bottom.

Good Luck Fishing Everyone!!! grin.gif

Northlander & Loonasea,

Your company was great also, I wanted to hook up with some bigger fish too, but thats the way it goes. I figured that you didn't have any cell service, but at the time it was the only thing that I could think of doing to get ahold of you, other than driving all the way back out to the lake again.

Take Care Guys, Looking Forward to Meeting up With Ya Again!! grin.gif

Northlander, whats your e-mail? Mine is bluebill7788@hotmail.com. I have school from 8:00 am through 1:00 pm M-F. I don't know what hours I will be working, or if I will be working yet, I haven't heard from any of the places that I applied to. I'll drop you a message when I get that figured out.

Take Care! grin.gif

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
