I've got a date with a few steelhead that day otherwise I'd stop by. I hope our those double top secret dock secrets aren't let out of the bag wink.gif That's great that tom is going to help out fellow anglers but I doubt he's going to share ALL his trade secrets. Pay attention though everyone. Your trolling season is right around the corner and you too could soon find yourself with the 'hot hand'.

Tom,

We can all use a few new tips and ideas. I could still definitely use some tips on bottom bouncing for lake trout. I have had some success with this but not as consistent as I would like. I plan to be there and appreciate you taking the time to share info.

I would like to attend but I have to be in Esko at 10am for a short while. I could make it down there about 10:30 if that would be OK. I'm not sure if I would want to interrupt anything going on.

Your not going to want to miss this guys. I went to one of Toms seminars last year and it was excellent. I think I learned more listening to his seminar then I did in ten years of trail and error and learning on my own. Definitely worth it.

Count me in Tom! I look forward to this seminar, and also the swap meet, then finally getting my tush on the lake and catching fish instead of doing circles around you getting burnt by the sun and being bored!!

Thanks Tom! My boat is going to stay secure in the garage! I just ordered some parts for my boat. When i drained my lower unit oil last fall, i lost my 2 screws/gaskets that hold the oil in, so i called Linc Rec in Minog and got those ordered. Now i have to check over the downriggers and check out the cable and counters, make sure they are in good shape, check out the batteries etc. A good vacuum and i will be close.

I am looking to install a CD player and GPS/Sonar Unit. i just emailed you about those...let me know what you think.

I had mentioned before that i will be fishing the brule that day but forgot about weather...if the weather is miserable I'm thinking about bringing my non-trolling work buddies to the seminar and sounds fun to see who's gonna be on the lake. Just wondering how much it costs or is it free seminar. My budget is running pretty tight these days blush.gif. Probably not much if anything and worth more than all my gear. The gear that is slowly getting set for TROLLING! I'm kinda excited about that. smile.gif

Sounds good Tom. I'm hoping for good weather but nice to have something else to look forward to if it goes sour. I'll have to give "Wild Bill" a call this week then.

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
