Has anyone been fishing Burntside? My buddy has a cabin on Burntside and we will be heading up there towards the end of August. I was wondering how the bite is? laugh.gif

FWJ, man I wish I could tell you. With any luck I'll be out there soon. Stay tuned and I'll try to fill you in.

Chunky,

I was thinking of heading up to B-side in Sept. to try for some lakers. During the week (Tue/Wed/Thur) is when I'd be up. Would you be able to make it out during the week? Depending on the weather, I may even camp a night. Let me know what your schedule looks like. I'm still waiting for the first fish on my new downrigger, hopefully Tuesday morning I'll get to break it in properly.

bmc:

Good quote by McGuane. He's one of my favorites. He's a fiction writer who's missed his calling. He really should concentrate all his efforts and write essays.

As well as his fishing essays collected in "The Longest Silence," he's got some truly fine essays about horses in his collection "Some Horses."

For anyone who wants to read truth about people, fishing and horses, read these books. You won't regret it. While McGuane, like fellow fishing writer Jim Harrison, has had his share of brushes with Hollywood, he's remained a guy who raises horses and fishes for trout and lives in Montana, where, as he says in "Some Horses," (and I paraphrase): If you leave the ranch in Montana for even one day during winter, when you come home the neighbors ask if you're back for the summer. It's just not worth it.

While McGuane IS a fly fishing puke, and subject to the slight arrogance such tradition brings, his lessons and humor apply to all us fishy types. laugh.gif

Hey Steve,

I got the quote out of the outdoor section of the Duluth paper one sunday. I haven't read any of his stuff, but plan on it this winter when things slow down. Last winter was Gordon MacQuarie's "Old Duck Hunters" series, which I really liked. I only wish I could have experienced the hunting and fishing in that era. What does your schedule look like for a mid-week trip on B-side in September?

Mid week is always tough. The paper has a wednesday deadline, so tue and wed are hectic, and we lay it out and put it to bed on Thursday. Mondays, weekends and Fridays are always better.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
