Went out fishing last night at Lake Elysian with my brother and uncle and had landed at the south access by Janesville beings I am from Janesville. Any how we did manage to catch some fish and all that alot of bullheads, but few eyes. When got back to the access to go home found out that someone had hit my trailer and tore the right trailer light off. Didn't leave any message or insurance card or anything. Looks like they cut their turn to short whoever it was. I don't know just kind of sickens me to think there are still people out there like that. So just warning you all becareful if docking at south access of Elysian anytime, there is some nooblet who doesn't know how to drive with a trailer.... On the good side there was alot of maroon paint on my trailer so looks like it got there car, truck, or boat trailer pretty good. Any how good luck and have fun.

Thats too bad it happened. I have not seen the damage but lets say it was a bigger pick up and a larger boat and trailer. This could have happened without the other guy knowing also. It doesnt take much of a hit to damage a trailer light and he or sher may not have felt the hit. Just a thought before we call him a nobhead.

Hopefully your insurance company will pay for the damage.

Question - have you been on Tetonka yet this year? I saw a guy do this exact thing when he took off. Owner of the trailer rig wasn't around, but it was the back right side (port side) of the trailer.

Just wondering if you were on Tetonka - this would have been opening day.

Okay. Just checking. The guy on Tetonka was in such a rush to get his boat out during the rain that he didn't pay any attention when he pulled from his parking stall. Clipped the other trailer pretty good too.

I wouldn't be assuming it is all one person doing this, two reasons, first there is alot of bad drivers out there, second, why would someone intentionally run into another persons boat trailer with there own trailer. I've heard of senseless property damage, but not at the expense of the persons own property.

I know it happend to a friend on German on Saterday, it sucks, but like someone said, with a big boat, truck, and trailer, hitting a tail light might not even be noticed.

And accidents do happen, last year at German lake I clipped someones front bumper on their truck while parking my trailer. I left a note under his wipper blade and slipped one in the window and then tried to find him on the lake. Ended up I met him at the access later on that night and we got everything worked out.

The kid that did this knew it happend he got out and looked at it. Funny thing is he just drove off knowing he did it. So yes there are people that stupid and it is bad for all who park at acesses. He could have easily left a note for my brother and been honest. Just my opinion.We were told he got out and looked at the damage and then just drove off.

      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.  
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There will certainly be some areas of open water to fish by the opener! Pike Bay ice is deteriorating fairly fast now. Other small shallow bays are probably not far behind. Cliff

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On!

      Well monstermoose78 is done ice fishing around here for the year. Why you ask I fell through yes there was 28-30 inches of ice on the lake, but the shoreline nope. Went fishing with @Cret Jigs and we had fun fishing. I cut lots of holes and we got some good ones for the knife. Cret jigs brought a plank for the way out but on the way in I did not make it to the plank. Cret jigs helped me get my stuff to the shore and out. I worry about the guy on the wheeler and they guy who used the plank to get out too. Thanks Cret jigs for a fun day.

      To all you guys who’ve been keeping us posted, thank you. I’m an islander so I don’t have much hope for the opener, but I’ve been reading all the posts (read them year around), including entertaining posts on new gear, and, again, thanks for letting a lot of guys know what’s going on there. The current weather, forecast and web cams, give me hope! I’m thinking I may get back home in three weeks, maybe four. Keep the sun shining, Dick
