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 up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
