7 year old casting

Polarbear, thanks for your reply to my post on boat launching. Assuming the water levels haven't affected the weed growth, casting along the cabbage weeds in Sullivans Bay used to be a can't miss prospect for kids. Also picked up quite a few walleyes on cranks doing that.

Any thoughts on a couple spots on the east end of Kab or west end of Nam for my 7 year old nephew to catch some smallies or pike with his Zebco?

He loves casting with his new rod and doesn't have the patience to drag snells or jigs for walleyes all day. Thanks in advance.

Ash River produced a nice northern for my son (4) while we were there memorial week. When I say the Ash River, I mean the river itself, that feeds into Sullivan bay. It's narrow, but plenty deep. We trolled shad raps super slow in the no-wake zones, and marked many many fish against the cliff faces across from the houseboat docks that could have been smallies or crappies. Next year I'll find out.

I have a really hard time believing that any river is void of gamefish. Smallies & current seem to go together like...Kab & Pineflies!

AQman,
Quite an analogy, pineflies and KAB, you should have been here for the mayfly hatch they go together quite well too.

Say, a good place to take the kid fishing from shore, see wildlife and get a short hike in, would be to go into Lost Bay, and tie up at the dock at the trail head that goes back to EK Lake.

Its a very short hike, less than one block, the lake is loaded with small bass, perch and many Northern pike. The shoreline is wooded but there are some opening.

While in Lost Bay, you could pull up on Yoder Island and cast from the rock or boulders that line the shoreline. There is a fair amount of current that runs through Lost Bay so that means fish. Good luck,
guts, < )))))))><

Cast the weedlines in the Grassies. They are always good for smaller pike, with a chance at a monster. You will also pull out a few smallies and an occasional walleye.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
