BBQ- I was thinking the same thing. What lakes you been hitting? I've been out goofing off for a little while and haven't been on the river in a couple of weeks. I'll get out cat hunting in the next week or two and I'll be sure to put out a post or two.
The info I gave you in the LOW forum was good, in my opinion. Give Ballard's a shot- very nice place.

Well in the last two weeks I've been to:
Big D
Sallie
Lizzie
Cotton
Lida
Ashtabula

didnt get much at Cotton and Lida but my depthfinder was broke so I had a hard time following structure
Big D I was hittin massive Largemouth up into the 5 to 6 pound range
Sallie caught about 5 pike in the 9 to 12 pound range, and even caught one at 18 pounds on my 8 weight fly rod (that was awesome)
Ashtabula, few eyes, few pike couple smallies and a whole lotta bullheads
Lizzie was fun, my first time there, handfull of crappies in the 1.5 pound range and a whole bunch of sunnies.

Im thinkin Ill have to go out with ed one of these days, I just cant quite get goin on the red, I think my fear of hitting underwater obstacles bothers me too much so i tend to stay away unless I can shorefish

Later

Heading up to Stu's Wednesday. The Red around GF is still very slow. League nights have even been hard to get a piggys in the boats.

Last week we only weighed in 12 fish out of about 42 fellas in three hours. I sure hope it turns on soon, with flooding last year and drought this year, Mr. Wiskers is gonna take a kicking again.

Second hand report- my buddy Slevee went out on the Red a couple of days ago- a few little peckers and one 18+ pound cat. He had a great tussle with it and had a blast. I wish I coulda joined him.

Ed,

A quick update on your rod- Dad just got back from LOW yesterday. Sounds like your blank is in, but he's not sure when he'll be able to get to it. He has a whole bunch of rod orders to take care of, a funeral, and some other obligations to deal with. Then he's got to get back to LOW- I think by Friday. He said that he'd get to it as soon as he could, but he wasn't exactly sure when that would be. Might be ok with the cats taking a little feeding break over the next couple of weeks, eh?

Hey BBQ, tell me a story. What fly were you using in Sallie to catch that pike. That sounds AWESOME!!!!!!! My best was a 38 incher up by Nevis last summer.
I'm taking my dad pike fishing next weekend around the D/L area. I figure to go hit sallie. Close and hopefully a good population of fish. Any other thoughts about that area. He only gets to pike fish once a year in Canada so this is a treat for him. I got him, my bro and nephew fly fishing for pike last year at LOTW. They thought it was a real kick. We're going muskie fly fishing in late JUNE. Hey good luck this summer with that fly rod. I've only been out once up by Nevis. Fished Big Mantrap and Crooked. caught a few on Buzz Baits. Caught a nice 6lb largemouth. My bud caught a 25 inch pike on a white bucktail. Water was cold about 58 to 61 degrees. saw a big muskie sunning on Mantrap. SeeYa StM

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

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