GEM kids fishing outing report and pics 4-28

6 posts in this topic

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

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.

      I dont think you will have trouble. Just be careful. There are a million trucks driving all over the place now

      Big Pine as of 1/15 had 16" of ice on the north side.  Only drilled 5 holes and all were around 16" according to my ice scoop.  Just placed fish house out there for the nephew and called it good.  Sorry no fishing report.
