Greg, I just read that you were out on Bowstring Saturday with the outdoor writer from the S/C Times. I just had to ask, was it a little cold? I was out there that same day and absolutely froze. We plopped down on my favorite crappie spot and waited for the fish to come to us as we weren't going to move in that miserable weather. Wanted to go try for some perch but we decided NO WAY!! Just had to ask!! Good luck fishing!!

hey merc,

me and a couple buddies were out there as well, on the north end. We got out there around 1100 and fished till about 3 and decided the hill in squaw lake would be a better place to be! grin.gif We only caught a few little perch and we braved the elements and moved 2x. Some guys told us they had caught some decent crappies and perch earlier in the morning. How did you guys do? We were planning on fishing Round Lake for the Squaw Lake Fire Dept's perch jerk but it got cancelled till this coming weekend.

Merc,

Oh yeah, it was cold enough out there. We moved three times before finding fish. It wouldn't of been bad if it wasn't windy out.

Jerry was up to get a few photos, etc. I tried to talk him into another weekend but it was the only one that would work for him.
We went out the next morning on a different lake for a half-day and it was even colder than the day before. Jerry said "you probably wouldn't even be fishing if I wasn't here." I answered "probably not."

bmc,

We actually did pretty well on crappies considering the miserable weather. Like I said we set up and waited and it finally paid off later in the afternoon. At first it was very slow with a fish every half hour or so and you had a lot of sorting on those. Then all of a sudden they showed up and they were pretty decent fish. Only got four perch but where we were is not typically a good perch spot. The thing I like about Bowstring is there are so many spots to try that I don't have to fish in the crowds. I look where the people are and then go off and try the spots where nobody is. Normally we get something out there, not aways limits but enough to keep our interest up anyway. We stopped and talked to somebody on the north end by the two big permanent houses and they were fishing perch but everything they were getting was very small. I'm going to try it next week again during the week. Good luck fishing!!!!

      They haven’t even gotten to eclipse plumage yet.  I haven’t seen enough birds around here to compare but they seem pretty young!   Great pic though!

      K-dub, I have been seeing a lot more bluegills of that size in Big Bay this year then ever before! Ran into a school of them last week and boated 17 gills that size one afternoon! Cliff

      Shimano Sedonas are work horses for the buck too.

      Charge your battery after every use. Your not getting enough charging when not running big motor enough. Other option is to move up a size in battery if room. I have ran Interstates for years with no issues.

      Hi - this may not be the exact best spot for this, but

      1). I flyfish, elk and deer hunt out of my simple, clean off grid cabin 11 m S of Ennis.
      Excellent elk, muley, whitetail, and pronghorn opportunities, E slope of Gravelly range. 2 m N of current Wigwam fire - no problem.I have more time than hunting partners and need solid, easy going buddies to hunt with, and or will time share swap with others for access to great hunting.

      2) I have 230+ acres of outstanding pheasant, whitetail, waterfowl, and some turkey just E of Granite Falls MN. If you are local and have bear, deer, turkey, etc., opportunities, especially closer to the Metro, Let's Talk. This land is also for sale, I'm tightening up my footprint and want to build on my Bozeman lot on the Gallatin.

      I am very interested in:
      - whitetail tree stand, including doe management opportunities (especially local for me in zone 610 MN) - gotta fill the freezer!
      - spot and stalk anything anywhere
      - turkey
      - winter southern or warm weather opportunities, including fly fishing..pigs?

      I'll give the noise supressor a try Bob.  Both units were purchased at the same time.    yoppdk- I checked my unit and I don't see any such setting on the 998.  There is a low battery alarm setting, but that is already turned to off.
