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!

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.
