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

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
