Im on my way!

5 posts in this topic

7 hours till I'm on my way up. This will be my first time ever fishing rainy. I hope the fishing is decent. I have fished sand point and namakan the past two years in spring and fall > i have also fished LOTW's a few times in years gone by but this is my very first time to rainy. I am kinda pre "scouting" for next springs family fishing/camping trip but also looking foward to putting a hurtin on some eyes and maybe a smallie and northern or two. Wish me luck. If you see a green f150 with "fishahollik" on the bug deflector, beep and wave or stop me and say hi. Feel free to offer a map and gps nunbers if your so inclined wink.gif

Well...As far as the fishing went, I am not real impressed.

Randoid and I had a good time but we didn't get alot of fish. The majority of them were under 12". We managed one slot fish (randoid). I had one I am sure was a slot that I "released" boatside, and three nice ones this morning 14-16 inchers. Randoid caught two small pike that smelled really strong and I caught three little smallies and 1 perch.

We fished pretty hard, and tried alot of different places and several different presentations as well as different baits (minnows, crawlers, leeches). All in all it was a fun trip, but not in the top 2 on my "gotta get back there" list.

The "campsite" is a story for another day...

Wade, my interest is peaked, what's the story on the campsite? Did you end up in Lost Bay?

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
