Beacon harbor how now been sold to Jon and Pam. Jon had been running fish houses since the crappie hey day Don and Jon's. They were at aggassi.s the first year jeff had a road. Dean and Debbie had purchased a farm and were pretty busy with that project. Jon also has a house I use to rent Idaho. Huge heavy house with two tv's. That house weighed 8700 pounds and was a bear to move sometimes.

Met Jon and Pam this weekend, we stayed in one of the fishhouses for a night, very nice people!! Sounds like Jon has lots of plans for improvements, made me tired just listening to him!!!

We were kicking back Friday evening after a good day of fishing and a fish fry, and Jon was nice enough to scrounge up some wood for us for a campfire!!! With service like that, they should do well!!

I met John for the first time yesterday when I swung up to Beacon's to see if Dean or Debbie were around. I had a very good first impression after meeting him. I think they will do well. laugh

Portavilla

I was just up to Beacons, Jon is hard working guy and has a nice setup over there and is finally living out what he has dreamed of doing for years. Portavilla and Beacons are not connecting roads, we see there is some stability in that region now. There are others that if they had some confidence in their ability could of invested and bought that shore but they didn't. Congrats Jon and Ann on your new adventure.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.
