orchard lake update

2 posts in this topic

I got out last night with my daughter, and we actually caught some fish. Seems the water temp is on the rise, which I assume is making the pannies bite a little more. We were fishing in the mouth of the cove on the north side in about 9 to 11 fow. After losing 6 minnows very quickly, I put on a little smaller hook, and tipped it with a grub. Got a nice crappie (about 8 inches), and it only ate half the bait. The other half went to a perch...yuck. My daughter and I pulled up 5 or 6 Sunny's - pretty small though, so I went back to the minnows. Another nice crappie - close to 10 inches this time...not too shabby! Just before packing up to leave, something hit my minnow hard. Then it hit again...a few reels later a nice 1.5 to 2 lb bass surfaced. I'm personally not a bass fisherman, but they do put up a nice fight. Knowing the season is closed, I popped the hook out of it's mouth in the water and let it go.

Nice outing!

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
