Quick Update...

5 posts in this topic

After much searching, trying different presentations and staying mobile, my clients and I were able to get on some nice 'eyes today. Our smallest was ~16" and we had a few that pushed 20". As a bonus, one of my clients stuck a beautiful smallie that touched the 20" mark on the tape. Just a horse. I'll post some photos tomorrow evening. Hopefully I have some to add from the trip tomorrow. smirk.gif

We spent much of the day riggin', draggin' jigs, pitchin' and trolling cranks and even some corkin'. Our focus was on murky water and emergent vegetation. Turned out, by day's end, that we were way off! We ended up getting our fish pitching jigs and leeches to submergent vegetation in 6 - 10' of water that was crystal clear. We actually saw a few 'gills flare around the jig on a couple of the fish. That made setting the hook obvious. grin.gif

I'll put together a more detailed report tomorrow evening. I think I'm off to a smaller lake in the morning but we'll see what happens.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.

      I've never used boards, what are the best boards to use with braid? I'll be using them on Superior and for eyes inland... I've heard the offshore ones need their clips upgraded to use with braid.

      Walleye, just make it look like you are fishing for crappies.

      Trout! Although, I don't think there are too many (if any, at all?) trout streams in the Ely area.
