GEM kids fishing outing report and pics 4-28

Recommended Posts


We had a good time at our first open water outing. we headed out to rush lake looking for gills and crappies. we had the GEM pontoon, and Jack and lowell brought their boats to help out. (thanks guys grin.gif) the first spot didn't go to well, only little ones in the back bay. We went in for lunch, then had our devotions. Jack talked about the recent Virginia tech shootings and reminded us how we never know when bad things can happen so we should always be ready to meet our God, through faith in Christ. After that we headed back out and tried out in the main lake were the green weeds were just starting to come up, we found better fish there. it was slow at first but picked up as the water warmed throughout the day. the pike were chasing the panfish around, and sometimes bit our tiny jigs. an after dinner snack mabye? Well,I thank the Lord for a great time! the next outing will be in two weeks for the opener!

here are some pics of the action!

Looks like something every boat owner should do at least once a year.

Looks like a blast cyberfish! I was lucky enough to attend a meeting or two and fish with you guys during a winter outing a few years ago, really good deal for the kids. Please give my greetings to Mr. Lindmark when you get the chance. Andrew, MA class of '04

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
