Countdown

7 posts in this topic

Six weeks from this coming Saturday, and I'll be back on the Big V!! Really I'm not that excited.

Off to the new Cabelas (it opened last Friday) store in Hazelwood, Mo. after work today to look over some of the "I really need that" items.

The boat needs an after winter clean-up but no biggie there. It's been running on the Mississippi already this year. Had some minor tweaks made to the motor height to stop a splashing issue a few weeks ago. That also gave me a little more top end, and easier steering.

Won't be long now! We'll be on the west end at Life of Riley. 22 foot Crest fishing pontoon, with a 115hp Johnson 4 stroke on the back. If you see us on the water, stop and say hi!

I am assuming you are the one that did battle with the Everett Bay Boat ramp last year and ended up coming over and using our ramp to pull out. Am I correct??

Randy,

That's me! It was a mighty battle. One damaged prop, brand new too. That hurt. I know better now.

Thanks again for your hospitality!

You run a class operation. Tell your wife I said hello.

I'm sure that we'll be down your way on the trip. I have three newbies along, and I'm sure we'll spend some time looking at the lake. We'll probably stop by for gas and to say hi!

MTNet,

We'll be up on June 2 and will be headed back on June 9. Most likely will head your way at some point in time! Let's get together. Cell coverage on the west end is tough for me until I get on the lake.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.

      Drove by Grays Bay this morning. The one and only house left has now partially fell thru. Not sure how this one is coming out.
