Hi all have a day of Thursday with the wife would really like to get some cats on the chain are they spawning now shallow? try around the bridges?, Was there on Saturday after the rain got 1 kitty cat that was it. any guidance would be great.
Since my leukemia diagnostic my son has been a champion helping out. I asked him was there anything I could do for him. He said an underwater camera would be nice. I ordered parts, improved camera resolution, faster camera movement (20 RPM to 30 RPM motors), USB phone charge port, aluminum verses plastic case. Only took 2 weeks to build. His only comment was awesome, bring on some ice, when I gave it to him.
White pulleys, mounting frame fabricated out of Walmart cutting boards, green drive belts are 6mm round polyurethane belt. 2 remote camera controllers.
While the grandkids were here we got pizza from the landing. Good thing we got two for the four of us. Their 12 inch pizzas were about 8 or maybe 9 inches. And over baked on top of that. Pushing 20 bucks each. I hope the rest of the menu isn't as disappointing as those pizzas.
Selling my Vexilar FL-12, new ice ducer two years ago and new battery two years ago. Has battery indicator as well as quick connect charger although I've charged with gator clips. $225.00. Works as it should, finally finished school so upgrading. PM me if intrested
Normally I don’t ask for help but I’ve been skunked last three summers on Side lake / Sturgeon Lake Chain for walleye. I’ve spent most time on Big Sturgeon and Side for eyes but have come up short. I’m heading up for a long weekend and hoping to change my luck with some advice. I’d appreciate anything as it’s been a grind... thanks !!
I fish for sunnies but that's because it is the only thing my wife and daughter have patience for. Besides, it's actually fun with a super light action rod. I would generally suggest fishing near vegetation or fishing by a dock with nearby vegetation (I wouldn't fish a dock where the cabin owner is around though!). The west end supposedly has more vegetation so supposedly more panfish. I never pay too close attention to the weed situation the few times a year that I boat east.
As for walleye fishing, I enjoy it but often don't invest the time either (hence my name). I do fine at opener and good in the fall, so essentially when any fool like me should catch them. The rest of the year I seem to enjoy the other things about Vermilion, enjoy my time repairing and fixing things, being in the woods, and swimming in the lake. I'm as happy to spend a weekend cutting and splitting wood, or making improvements, as hooking a limit of walleye. There really is a ton to love about being on such as beautiful lake.
Right on. Sand lake Zebras were found in 2013 and now found 20+ miles up the Big Fork river through several lakes. Bowstring is only 5.5 miles south of Sand via the Bowstring river. Although going against flow, during most of the year flow rate is extreamly slow. DNR states wide area coverage of adault Zebras on north end. Adult females produce 1,000,000 eggs annually so most likely will spread over the entire lake by end of the year.
Stop in at Redding’s and ask if they can help. Or maybe even Emily Meats. Owned and operated by long time area residents. They might know if someone would be willing.
Any preference on lake or type of fish?
Beautiful day to be out on rainy lake today(Friday) Fished from 10am to 1:30pm walleye fishing on the north arm temperature about 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Had to check 4 reef before finding active fish. Caught 16 walleyes ranging from 22” down to 13”( only 2 -13”, 4 -14”-17”), 2 perch and a 33” northern. Fishing jig and minnow in 26’ with surface temperature at 75 degrees.
