My day at Upper Red

Recommended Posts

smartguy

Just got back from Upper Red lake. We had one of those days where EVERYTHING seems to go wrong:
We ran out of bait at peak bite time - thanks to that God forsaken perch hole we were on. By the time I got back from the bait store, the typical peak bite time was gone.
Only one crappie between two guys in 6+ hours of fishing. About 3- 4 dozen 6-7" perch.
Worst yet, when it was time to leave, my portable house didn't want to collapse since the poles were all iced up. After thawing them out with my Mr. Heater (and freezing our azzes off in the 45 minute process!), we finally were able to leave. Except that I noticed a small piece of my floor broke off.
Of course, being that the trunk lid of my car couldn't close completely (due to the fish house sticking out), I had a ton of snow in my trunk.
Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I burned my left arm 3 times on my heater - and I didn't even drink!

Wish I could go back up tomorrow!

smartguy,
If I remember right didn't your house run out of fuel earlier in the year? You are on a real bad run of luck but that could be good as all things come even in the end so you are due for a warm day and a hot bite. smile.gif
Yesterday when littleitaly was in W.W.'s bait shop a guy came in and she asked how it was going. His response was something like this, "I got stuck and had to get someone to pull me out. Then the tire broke off my fish house. We haven't caught a fish yet but this is the most fun I've had in a long time".

Yep, we were up there about a month ago when you refilled our propane. Still owe you a beer for that.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
