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

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Pike very active with 6-12 feet running crank baits ... also Bass !!   Been using various crank runners some off deeper weed lines 12-15 feet.    Fun trolling and having to stop because the rod was smacked hard 😃     Cret

    • Bryan P
      Been awhile since I posted, busy summer but finally got the kayak back out on the Mississippi to chase after them fall smallies. The bite was really good and managed a new personal best at 21"! Bait of choice is my wacky worm, they never can resist! I'll be chasing these till ice is on the lakes. Best fishing is right around the corner, goodluck everyone!    Video:  https://youtu.be/PJOZITB0ol0
