Thanks Kelly, Patsy & Jonny.

4 posts in this topic

I've visited these people for some years now and just wanted to say thanks again! I came up last Thursday, by myself and started fishing at 1:30 and by 3:30 I had 9 crappies and one 15.5" walleye (10-12 smaller and larger walleyes released). At 5:30 Patsy stopped by to see how I was doing and we bothjust laughed. We met the other two for an adult beverage at the Tall Tale's Bar. Great people serving and great fun. Left the next morning catching 20 crappies and 30 walleyes. No walleyes over 20", biggest crappie 14.5".

Thanks again!!!!

Sounds like you had a good time.

I am calling Kelly for a sleeper house today -- What was the hot hook and color?

I caught almost everything using a bobber. One set at 6" from the bottom and one 18" from the bottom. I caught walleyes and crappies at both depths. I'm partial to red hooks and I add a Phelp's white (chartreuse)glow tube. That's what was on my dead sticks, and they out fished jigging. I jigged with an assortment of jigs and colors, but the hook & tube did the trick. After I had my crappies, I set 7" - 8" sucker minnows down 4' off the bottom and caught 3 walleyes just under 20" in length. I had 3 northerns on my 4 lb. test but never got one to the hole. Close but no cigar.

Good luck!

      I'm looking for the best and cheapest place to get a 30 pound propane tank filled. Seems like all I can find are exchanges for 20 pounders.
