Gervais hasn't been a topic for awhile. Others have been out there once or twice though.

G-man, glad to see you are still out there and hit the forum. We still need to hit some open water together before the hard water season is upon us.

I would like to hit our ice fishing lake for some open water pannies, pike, and bass one of these nice fall days.

With fall upon us many of the anglers start getting in hunting mode and fall bite can be fantastic.

Hey Mr Pike. I've been to one of the ice fishing lakes last weekend for the first time out in several weeks and did very well on numbers...only a few decent size. Give me a shout sometime soon!

Mykal, glad to hear from you !!!!!! I can not believe the summer is almost over and we have spent limited time on the water together.

I hope you have all your spots marked on Mille acs to get old man pike on the lake for some fall pigs pulling the cranks.

Hey Andy is getting married. The wedding is next weekend. He and his wife to be bought a nice place just outside of St. Cloud. He now has all the space he needs for all his fishin and hunting toys. One really neat feature at there new place is a gazebo that is built into the deck. It is fully wired for watching a game or playing poker.

I have been fishing a lot more local this year then in years past with a few trips to the cabin and few weekends on mississippi chasing smallies.

Andy also has discovered this great little walleye lake for ice fishing a little North of St. Cloud for ice fishing. There is one piece of sturture in the middle of the lake and the eyes come up at dusk and attack.

Anyway we need to hook up my friend and catch up. I assume you have been hitting Mille acs quite a bit and getting close to guide status on the mud and sand smile.gif

I hit the lake the other night from 330-930 targeting muskies most the night and never even saw a fish. Before calling it I took a couple trolling passes and picked up a little walleye.

I'm still around. My wife is almost ready to pop. Any time now.

I got out this weekend with my father. He came up and visited for the weekend and brought his boat. We hit Minnewashta twice. Did alright, mainly around the rockpile. Caught a nice variety. Nothing huge.

I'd second the 'we still need to get out together'.

Mykal- I still got checking out your boat on Mille for fall walleyes in the mind. I just hope I can make it work.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.

      How did you do?

      So I am torn I want to put a graph in my smaller boat.. I love my lx 6 flasher and am thinking about getting the high speed transducer for it and just going with that but I don't get why they charge $199 for it when bird and lowrance ducers are far less   I almost pulled the trigger on the lowrance hook 4 with down scan and chart plotter at gander for $179  I don't care about the chart plotter really as I have a big hand held gps that I use in that boat and that screen is larger than the hook 4 when you have it split plotter and graph they only had the display model left and wouldn't go lower price so I passed   If I can find the hook 4 at another gander that doesn't have the chart plotter for cheaper I may go with that   Does any one have experience with the lx on open water I hear it is at par with an lowrance elite 5 I am kind of wanting to go with that but don't know   What would you do run the lx open water or go with hook 4 with down scan

      We survived our trip!  LOL   Fishing was steady.   We caught 30 walleyes in 3 days of fishing.  Usually fished from 11 am to 4 pm.  The 'eyes were running small, lots of 11 to 13 3/4" fish, but we did get 3 keepers.  We also kept a few nice perch and crappies.  We also caught a few snake northerns.   Jigging w/ chubs produced the best, but I did catch a few 'eyes on the crawler lindy rig combo.  Mid lake structure and underwater points off of islands all produced fish.  Mayflys were hatching, but the fish were still hungry. I did catch a 4-5 lb channel cat in the Savanna River one evening.   We stayed in the south loop of the Army Corp campground.  We liked that we were w/in about 30 yds of our boat which we kept at the dock.  The river on the north side of us and the lake on the south side offered a nice breeze to keep things cool and the bugs away for the most part.  Con's were the campsites are small and were too close together.  Also no turn around at the end of the south loop road.  The north loop was beautiful, spacious campsites, but surrounded by swamp and we heard the skeeters were bad at dusk.  Definitely want some thermacells or a screen tent to enjoy the evening by the sounds of things.  Also the docks aren't close/in view of the campsites.   We would definitely stay there again, on the north loop, in May or Sept. after the skeeters have died down a bit.   Staff was friendly, shower houses were nice, boat landings were nice.     Brian
