25th Anniversary, Voyageurs

4 posts in this topic

Couldn"t think of a better way to celabrate. For our 25th anniversary my wife and I are headed to Voyageurs for a week together. Rented a houseboat out of Ebel's and will be towing the fishing boat behind. Plan on staying mostly on Namakan. She plans on getting some reading in and taking alot of pictures(got a new camera outfit for Christmas last year) and I plan on alot of fishing.

I have been following this thread for awhile and thanks to everyone, as I have picked up some great pointers here.

Wish us well and hope the next twentyfive are as great as the last twentyfive.

Have a great 25th! Let me know what kind of boat you have and I'll keep an eye out for you. I have a place on Namakan that I'm sure you will be passing by.

Congradulations on 25 years. Unfortunately for me age-wise you are just a rookie yet. It's been beautiful up here the last few days, water temp still in the low 70's (swimable), and I caught a 38 inch northern and 2 "keeper" walleyes in 2 hours fishing this AM. Yesterday we took a cruise on glass-smooth water to Crane Lake from west Kab (50 mi) and had lunch at Nelsons Resort (recommended). Heard wolves howling and some kind of cat (bobcat, lynx?) screeching last night.It's windy today, but looks like the nice weather will hold out for a bit. Good luck with your trip. Give me some sort of ID(boat type) and we may stop and toast your 25 years as we will be here for a few days yet, Turtle

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.

      Leeches under a slip bobber drifted over a small shelf off a bigger flat.  Bobber set at 8.5 feet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:
