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!

      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
