GEM kids fishing outing report and pics 4-28

Recommended Posts

Cyberfish

We had a good time at our first open water outing. we headed out to rush lake looking for gills and crappies. we had the GEM pontoon, and Jack and lowell brought their boats to help out. (thanks guys grin.gif) the first spot didn't go to well, only little ones in the back bay. We went in for lunch, then had our devotions. Jack talked about the recent Virginia tech shootings and reminded us how we never know when bad things can happen so we should always be ready to meet our God, through faith in Christ. After that we headed back out and tried out in the main lake were the green weeds were just starting to come up, we found better fish there. it was slow at first but picked up as the water warmed throughout the day. the pike were chasing the panfish around, and sometimes bit our tiny jigs. an after dinner snack mabye? Well,I thank the Lord for a great time! the next outing will be in two weeks for the opener!

here are some pics of the action!

Looks like something every boat owner should do at least once a year.

Looks like a blast cyberfish! I was lucky enough to attend a meeting or two and fish with you guys during a winter outing a few years ago, really good deal for the kids. Please give my greetings to Mr. Lindmark when you get the chance. Andrew, MA class of '04

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      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.
