I shot my Moose 2 years ago about 4 miles just north of wildhurst off of Hwy 1. My father in laws name is Barry Collatz and he has a cabin just south of wildhurst- We always see Leroy when we are up there and have a couple of beers- When I shot my Moose I went right to leroy and he helped my out when I needed alittle help- I just saw leroy the night he shot his moose and he was in a GREAT mood- MY name is Mike and Just mention my father in law Barry and he'll know- Good luck-

yea i was up there that first week with them my two uncles were well, to say the least in great moods tell i woke them up early the next morning when i left for my bow stand. you must have seen him before he got crabby that night. i dont think i have heard so many cow calls in one night. every time we wanted a beer we would do the cow call. well i am headed up after work tomorrow night to give it my all. my aunt shot a nice buck up there monday. you should look at the web page to look at some of the beauties shot up there this year. one of them looks like someone shot a horse and mounted some horns on it. talk to ya later and ill tell leroy hi for ya.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

        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?

      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.
