I was up with a large group staying out of KJ's houses on the end of Anderson Reef. 10 people over three days dozen perch no bigger then 4" and two eel pout all less then 12". KJ has houses around Spirit and he said same results out around the island. It was slow and he said had been slow all year around Anderson's and Spirit. I had talked to some groups that went out to the flats with sleds and did alright as long as you moved a lot.

I was near spirit island on the reef all weekend last week and was able to get 1 fish it was my only bite. it was very slow, no one I talked to caught anyhting except small perch. i think the bite has been bad out there all year. hopefully it picks up. The flats have been good from what i have heard.

We are going out of KJ's tomorrow. Are the houses nice? We have been using Lyback's and were very pleased with the houses and service. We are trying a change to hope to get some fish. Has it been any better out of KJ's lately?

The fishing has been pretty bad this year out on Anderson's reef and around spirit. If you have a portable bring that with so you can get away from the crowds to find some fish. KJ's houses are nice and he does a decent job checking on you. The houses are usually on the end of Anderson's reef or around the island.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
