8/9 report

It looked like it wasn't going to happen this weekend! Trip to the clinic on friday morning with the youngest and yep strep throat! He could'nt swallow so he had to take a shot to the leg! OUCH! But by Sat. morning he was bouncin around and ready to go.
Lots of sportboat traffic due to the Floe wedding sat. night! Very spectacular! also made for some great evening entertainment.
I head as far away from the traffic as possible with a couple of additional teens that we were watching over the weekend.

Belle horn bay:
Fished in front of the prarie river inlet and picked up a couple of eyes but were small at best. Also small pike. Dragin blades. Colorados and there was no preference on what they wanted. Left when the boats started to come in.

Battle island:
This seemed to be the place to be. We picked up 3-4 that could of went in the livewell if we were keeping. There is a weedline south of the island next to a single bouy. Drops hard to the east and levels out to 6 to 9 feet to the west. Stay as close as possible to the weeds. Once agian hammered copper at 7ft long leaders was the hot ticket. We also were using various sizes of blades and the bigger seamed to be the better. The eyes were as gold as rings! Quite the sight for the youngsters in the boat.

Cor of Eng campground:
If your looking to get in there it stays pretty packed over the month of august. I will let you know the have drive in sights available that can not be resereved. Fabulous place for kids.
Funny note:
I did talk one of the kids into kissing the first walley to give him better luck! Bad thing was he got spined by the eye just as he puckered up! Still makes me laugh.

Hey Burr!

Have you heard of any Crappie reports coming off Big Sandy, specifically Bell Horn Bay?

Good fishing,

All my crappie reports were old and was told a week ago they were slowing down (moving from known spots). Sorry but would try the old dead pine tree early in the morning.

      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. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      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
