Whewwwwww HOT!!!!!!!

I want to give out a special thanks to Reef Runner and the boys for meeting me friday night! Let me know if your coming back up during the month of august.

It was my sons B-day party this weekend which intailed bringing 2 more 10 year olds with to enjoy the weekend. We had to redicide Sat. schedule due to the heat factor. We ended up going over to the Savanah State Park. They have a swiming beach on Loon Lake. They also have hiking trails but not for this guy on a day like that! I give Loon Lake the highest recomendations to anyone kids or not to go and relax! Very peacefull with no boats running back and forth, clean clear water, playground for the youngsters, and of course very nice people.

Saturday evening I loaded up the three boys and headed for the lake for some evening slip-bobber fishing. We were held up for 10 minutes due to towing in a couple on a stranded jet-ski that were trying to swim it back. We fished the battle Island spot I did well at last week. When we arrived I was informed by the first young adult that "I'm a caster! Bobber fishing bores me!". My son was kind/smart anuff to stop him before he got out of hand. He then politely sat and waited his turn to get his line set up. I did let him cast his plug a few times while he was waiting and it did produce one of our walleys. By night fall we had caught and released 8 wall dogs and one perch and much to my surprise never had a boater around us. There were a ton of people fishing in the hillcrest area but received no reports due to the fact I had to leave early on Sunday to make it to the game fair. I had tipped a few people on this spot this weekend but know one showed up. The wall dogs ranged from 12" to 17" and would of made a great meal. We were using slip-bobbers w/ pink and chartruse lead heads. The best was a chartruse and orange "Fliry Girty". Some of the ice fisherman will know this lure. The make them in bigger sizes than most people see. I stuck with a Techno-fuzzy and hung it over the boat and never touched it till I seen it getting tapped. Leeches big leeches which I still can't find localy in the Mcgregor area. I am still picking up before I get there.
I will be up again this weekend hopfully kidless so drop me a note if anyone wants to get together!

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too. 
    • delcecchi
      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.
