Thanks SS. The black boat is a 2001 19.5 ft Champion fiberglass deep v. It's too bad they don't make the Champions anymore because they are great boats!

Nice video miller! Really enjoy these videos- especially when old friends get to take part in them! Love re-living the memories. Hope we can get back out one more time before the season closes. Good luck out there!

Randy- if your wife ever finds out how much money all the equipment for the big water costs, call me up! I'll buy...I'm in the market! Lol

Thanks FF! I wish we were able to get some more footage from the time we went out but what can you do.

Randy, yes we finally got the boat rigged up with downriggers this summer and it works out great. Only thing left to add is a planer mast up front but that might have to wait until next season. Have you been out on LS at all lately? I am hoping to get out again this coming weekend. I'm thinking I am going to start trolling shallower with these colder temps we have been seeing lately. Looks like it is time for Randy to get a GoPro! wink

Really enjoyed that!

I only get to fish the gitch once or twice a year and it usually never let's us down.

This year the lakers seemed to run larger. thanks for posting.

      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.

      Looks interesting.... any chance a video is on its way 🙂
