Foster House Part II

Recommended Posts

suick100

Just got back from another Red Lake adventure with Pat Foster at the controls. Seals everywhere but managed to dodge most of them, except this one young and sassy one who would not go back down the hole. We used the Patented Club Red Seal stick and that finally worked to get rid of him once and for all. Anyway, yes the fishing was GREAT! This time the crappies, were visiting us. Myself and two other guys ended up with 24 Slabbys, biggest one measured exactly 15 1/2 inches and the rest were your typical Red Lake 14 incher, which always amazes me, compared to any other lake, these fish are absolute monsters. We also got our limit of nice 16 inch walleyes, some perch and no big Gators. All in All another awesome trip and Foster came through once again. Thanks again for the great house and service Pat. Had one Red Lake rookie along and seeing his eyes pop when that first slabby came up his hole was priceless. I will return with my son on Presidents Day weekend and maybe my son will catch the big gator this year. Last Feb 06, I caught a 22lb. Northern within 15 minutes of arrival. The Triangle and the Seals live ON!!!!!

I know which house he hasn't moved in the last few days. cool.gif It isn't by you "huntingislife". I think you should move about 1/2 the way back towards Hillman's. Where you are at now doesn't seem to be happening yet. Usually it is late Feb. and into March before we find them there in big numbers.

I was thinking about moving this weekend. I wasn't sure if I should move that far back in or maybe just back to 6 miles.

Hi Melanie, Go ahead and put the posting on Pats Website, we had a great time up on Red Lake and always do. Except, those darn Seals continue to harass us when were reeling in the crappies, they are really a pain and Pat needs to get Bigger Seal Clubs. Anyway, my buddies took all the pictures on there digital cameras, so I will get those to you as soon as I can. I have not yet entered the digital age, still have the throw away camera. Hey Kelly, keep Foster in line until I return on Presidents Weekend. FISH ON!!!!!!!!!

Hi Jm15, We had the best luck with the glow demon hooks, green, red, and blue for the crappies. Walleyes it didn't seem to matter, I caught alot of them on a plain red hook or anything that glowed into the evening hours. Hope this helps and good luck to you. Like Kelly said, Bring lots of sweets for Foster.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂

      Heading up to Wheelers Thursday for sturgeon.

      Heading up to the river in the morning trying to decide if I should fish up the river or out if wheelers.

      Sure wish we would get a strong enough east wind to pile the ice on shore. Lot of ice out there and it will take a long time if it has to all melt.
