Hiya -

Mother-in-law got the itch and reserved us some accomodations at the usual place for the 2nd week of July and let 'em know we'd be needing a guide...not just any guide...but Sir Oveson. He really should be knighted, y'know. grin.gif

Maybe this year you can shake some time loose for that drink by the campfire!

Man, I'm looking forward to it!

A1, good to hear from you, can't believe you are going to get away from those catfish long enough to get up here. I will make sure I can get away for a little while, wife and I hope to stay down there occassionally. Lots of changes there since your last trip up. I hope Sir Oveson can accomodate you, he says he is not going to guide much this year, so feel privledged. He will be a youthful 92 this year. guts

Hmmm maybe Mother-in-law can coax him out with some homemade lefsa!?! If I'm willing to rice up the taters, she's willing to make some!

I'm looking forward to it! "Up North" is like stepping out of the skin I wear every working day and letting the sun, wind and water soak the soul!

Say, I was wondering if deep trolling with dipsies & such would be a worthwhile tactic for big pike? What's yer take on deep trolling action in the summer up there?

Ron, the water temps and baitfish locations will be the indicators for big pike. I've known big sucker minnows to do the job when nothing else works. Using dipsies and or deep divers could work well, as might using leadline and a diver combo.

I've caught many a nice fish, using a 1oz or heavier slip sinker and a #18 floating rap rather than live bait.

I should mention that some of the nicer pike that are consistently caught throughout the summer, are simply caught using a large bobber and big suckers, lots of these are taken near the area of Gold Portage and in Hacksaw Pass, both locations near the resort.

I'll probably have more ideas and locations as the time approaches, and the facts come in. guts

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
