Well, the perch were willing but the walleyes and pike had lock jaw last week. But regardless, what a beautiful area. Our first family foray 463 miles for an "up north" vacation was a rousing success. My wife is already talking about going back.

Glad you had a good time. The fish did have lock jaw. I caught a few Sat. night after dark. Was going to try to get to the resort to meet you but the weekend was short. Let us know when you come up again we'll try to meet up. We caught some nice cats and a few eyes down in the Iowa river 2 weekends ago. We will be back to CR in Oct for Pheasant opener.

mklem,

Next year if the walleye's have lockjaw, drag your boat over to Winni, it's a short drive west. A couple of years ago my brother and our son's stayed at a resort on Jessie and had trouble catching walleye's, we headed over to Cut Foot/Winni and had a blast, lots of fish.

There was a family at Three Cedars who slipped over to Bowstring and nailed the pike. They brought back a limit. Not big, but big enough to eat.

I knew when we planned the trip for July that the fishing would be hit or miss. I was happy to be on the water, hearing the loons and feeling the waves. The perch were a bonus.

We left our 9 month old at home with G&G, but he will be along next year, wherever we go. I'm hoping back to Jesse or another nearby lake.

We didn't leave the resort much so we didn't see a lot of what the area has to offer. But we had a great time.

The pheasant opener should be pretty good. We had some poor conditions in June with heavy rain and cool temps. Could have some really young roosters out there. Where are you going to hunt? The bird numbers in NW Iowa are going to be off the chart. Other places may be similar to last year or slightly down.

Where were you fishing on Saturday? I pulled in 8 fish in 11-14 feet on leeches. Had a few more hits that felt like walleyes.

Surprising that you didn't get into a few hammerhandles. At least dem perch kept ya busy. Glad to hear you had a good vacation. That's why they call it fishing, instead of catching. Or maybe the ol' "you should have been up here last week" grin.gif

Jessie can be tough to figure out at times, especially mid-summer. I know I can be stumped somtimes out there.

We will be hunting south of cedar rapids to west of williamsburg, some private land and public areas. The problem being that most of the land is in low areas and with all the rain I hope the birds were old enough to get out of the water.
