Last open water outing for this year.

8 posts in this topic

Tomorrow will be my last day on the open water for this year.

My son and I will be making it a full day out there in what is predicted to be one of our nicest Oct days this month.

My friend and fellow Vermilion guide Dave Schaeffer Will also be out there fishing by us trying to get that one last giant gator to bite.

He and a friend boated his 4th. 40# plus musky today, his second 40# plus this week! shocked.gif

Hope that everyone has had a great summer! smile.gif

Time to get ready for deer season and also time to get this winters gear and the fishhouses ready.

Good Fishing!

Cliff

Thanks Cliff. I've read a lot of your posts this year as a new member to the site.

I'll be heading up to my place this weekend too and will give a quick water/ice report early next week.

So Clifford how did the day go? I was thinking on making one more trip, but since you put my way of getting out to the main lake away, I guess I will have to wait until spring. I would certainly enjoy another winter outing when you have the time. Let me know, actually I will probaly see you two before that time comes. I have an idea for a business venture when I move there next spring, and would like to run it by you and see what you think. Until we see each other take care. Later Darrell.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
