No offense but I hope not blush.gif. I remember several years ago fishing in a boat while listening to Christmas tunes on the radio, it was december 15th or 16th.

Actually I just bought an icehouse this summer still need an auger and a few other acutriments. Looking forward to a long fall then I'll give the ice a try. cool.gif

I'm with Sluggo, Fishing from Sept. through Nov. can be some very good fishing. Plus the river bite goes all winter. Time to get the red tails out.

True, but it doesn't hurt to be prepared. I put new carpet in my permanent fish house this afternoon.... I just love to keep busy I guess. Plus it's alot easier to work on that ice fishing crap when it's 80 degrees and sunny as oppossed to 20 degrees and dark. Know what I mean? How many times in December do you kick yourself because simple little tasks seem impossible because of normal WINTER conditions? I'm with you guys though, I do love fall fishing and yes I believe the best is yet to come this year. Just following the theme of the original post is all... smirk.gif

Yes the best fishing is still to come. I feel that were going to have a huge winter. If you look at what his summer has become, there has only been a few weeks where it has been hot. Get them houses ready now, your right bro, your not going to be wanting to work on them houses in the cold.

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
