I’m headed up to the area Friday.  I was thinking about trying Round or Bowstring or both.  Mainly targeting walleye and perch but a mixed bag would be great.  My main question is how is lake travel?  Will I be able to get around with a wheelhouse?  Is anyone willing to point me in the right direction?  It has been several years since I fished this area.

thank you

We're close to the NW PA for Bowstring. If you're seriously considering going there, I recommend giving Geiger's Trails End resort a call @ (800)617-4589 or (218)832-3231. You can visit their homepage  or they are on Facebook as well

Round lake (by squaw lake) has been slow as hell. I plow a road out to the center humps every year to my ice house. This year instead of battling the drifts trying to keep the road open to a non productive spot I gave up and am keeping a short road out by the landing open to my house. Just as good in 8 feet of water close to the landing as it is a mile out to the same quality of fishing (which is VERY slow).

We've been up for a few weeks & most of the locals we've talked to have said the bite has been slow over there too.

If I had to give up one month of the year for fishing, it would be February.  Not saying you can’t get into something good but I don’t ever hear anyone say they can’t wait for that February bite! 

Fortunately we don’t HAVE to give up a month! ;)

Been slow on Bow too. Travel was a little tough off road when we were there last.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
