Job well done by both fisherman and guide.

You'll have to congratulate him for all of us.

Remember its not about the size of the fish but about the size of the smile.

That was a whopper, I was just glad to get my gear back. He did get released, so all you fellas up in Orr still have a shot at him. Its been a couple of years since then. Corky, didn't we put that thing in the cradle right before the dorks in the red Lund tried to run us over?

Ok, fun is fun, but this is the second time you have posted that pic on the site and referred to the "short boat". Dont forget that Santa Terry is still hanging out there.

YEAH, IT WAS FOUL HOOKED OR THAT BABY WAS ON THE WALL. AMAZING HOW LAKES LIKE WINNIE, LEECH, LOW, AND MILLE LACS KICK OUT 14 TO 15 INCH FISH ON A REGULAR BASIS AND OTHER LAKES ARE FULL OF WALLEYE BAIT. YOU GUYS CAN HAVE ALL THE WALLEYE FISHING YOU WANT, I WOULD MUCH RATHER BE ON A SCHOOL OF 12" PERCH ANY DAY IN JANUARY.... BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT PHOTO, HAMMS INDUCED, DOESNT STRIKE FEAR INTO THE HEARTS OF OTHER PERCH GUYS.

I HAVE GREAT FRIENDS. laugh.gif

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and chores.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.
