it has been so crazy this year i finally
got in a cat' day yesterday. I was surprised and pleased at the landing at MB Johnson being so easy in and out, no mud problems, it was geat. the goldeye weren't very cooperative we only could catch one so i dug out my waterdogs and a couple reserve suckers. The cats were pecking in the morning and being fussy for us but we had a good midday. We landed 8 nice cats the biggest at 29" which was sent back in to swim around again. I thought the bite was tough for us. I wondered if the other 2 rigs i saw at the landing caught anything or if anyone else experienced a little slowness. or we just can't fish!!!! what a great time i could do that everyday! I am jealous of Backwater ED! It was nice to just go fish for fun and relax. I also caught a big old snapper downstream from the landing a mile or so. Do the goldeye go hot and cold just like any other fish? they weren't even jumping much. still had a blast.

I was out fishing on Saturday morning (September 7) south from the Convent landing. I was using frozen goldeye for bait and caught some cats, but the fishing has seemed to slow down some from how the catfish bite was in August. It is still great to get out on the river to fish though. Hopefully the walleye bite will get hot soon. Bruce

Goldeye have been hard to get now. I was out on the Red tonight and tried to catch some goldeye for bait with no success. I tried many of the spots and techniques that worked earlier in the season but that didn't work tonight! I froze some goldeye that I caught earlier so they have been nice to have for times like this when the goldeye aren't cooperating. I acually like to use frozen goldeye better than fresh goldeye. The frozen goldeye stays on the hook better and and is easier to use with less mess. The cats don't seem to mind the "goldeye popsicles" either! Bruce

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
