went to Jacks shack last weekend and it was closed. Was it just closed for the season? Do the bears come out all summer or in the fall? thanks

Jack's Shack had a fire a couple of years back and hasn't been open since. However, I haven't been by in the last couple of months so maybe something has changed since then.

It was owned by two women. They did have a fire, but I also heard some stir about violations of the sorts, and perhaps some underage activities as well.

These could have been rumors though...Don't quote me on this though.

Jacks Shack is owned by a couple ladies and I understand they are trying to reopen. There wasn't any illegal activities going on. The problem was with state or county regulations regarding the kitchen and sanitary sewer as I undertsand. Everything was fine before the fire , but when it came time to rebuild or repair ,the new regulations or standards went into effect. The repairs are going to be quite expensive. The ladies are still working on it and I would guess it won't be too long and they will be open. Let's hope so , it was a great place and they have a lot of money tied up.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.

      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches.

      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
