Since deer hunting wasn't going so well, I took the boat as plan "B". Decided to head to South Lida thinking I could find some crappies and walleyes. Got to the access, the pirvate one between the two lakes and decided to pass. The access looked too soft for my little 2wd. Headed up to Franklin. You know that by the time you're at plan "C" there will be a marked diminishment of expectations. I marked some fish and caught a few northerns and perch. As soon as the wind did a 180 degree turn, the fish just quit hitting at all. The cool thing was the elk ranch near the lake. The elk were bugling constantly all afternoon long. Bad hunting, bad fishing, still better than work. I thnk I've got the same problem as Bison9. Burning smell by the driver's side rear wheel. Shakes a bit when I get up to speed.

Funny part is (read my other post in the Pelican thread), mine was due to a parking break being engaged while I was barreling down the highway... crazy.gifcrazy.gif

My parking break indicator is shot on my truck and I had no way of knowing that it was engaged - It probably just goes to show also that my brake wasn't working great to begin with if it wasn't gripping as well as it should have while engaged... It's funny how disengaging the parking break will make your truck run a lot smoother... smile.gif

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
