  1. Enclosed. Going to install a heater. We have a trailer at Mylie's. Thanks for the reply.
  2. We have tracks on our machine. Haven't been to the portage in years.
  3. Can I get a side by side over the Turtle Lake portage to get to Whitefish for trout fishing?
  4. Got back from two weeks at our trailer at Mylie's. Duck hunting was so-so. Good shooting on Ring Necks and mallards the first week, very slow later on. Had some diver shooting one day and the nothing. One of our worst years. Fishing was good, not great. Did not find the fish in the usual Fall spots. Got almost all our fish in deep depressions 25-30 FOW. All were caught on jigs and minnows. Lost a tremendous amount of fish. Stinger hooks didn't help. Didn't even try for crappies. They just were hitting anywhere on the lake. Closed our place down until next february.
  5. 61 degrees when we left. We are heading back around the 7th. Dick
  6. Got back from two weeks at our trailer. Walleyes were tough at times, but we hit a couple of real good days. 1-1/2 hours and 17 fish, two were under 15" and the rest were from 16-27". Bottom bouncing with spinners and minnows, current areas, 20-30 FOW. Crawlers seem to have slowed up. We did manage one good day for crappies. We caught over 40 and kept 28 nice ones. Went back a few days later and couldn't find them anywhere. Duck hunting for our group was very slow. More geese than ducks. Started to see more ducks the night before we left. Heading back in two weeks.
  7. Got back from two weeks at our trailer at Mylies. Fishing was a little slower than earlier in the Summer but we got a lot of fish. Plenty of small walleyes. My wife got her largest of the season - a nice 27" fish. We managed three limits to bring home. Nothing under 16" and nothing over 18". All were caught on bottom bouncera and spinners with crawlers. Depth varied from day to day. Most of our action was in Miles along shorelines and around the islands. We did have some great crappie fishing. Three limits. On our last day we kept 15 fish from 14-17". All were caught on crappie rigs with minnows and a white twister. Again didn't get to fish muskies. Back in two weeks for opening of duck season.
  8. Just got back from 10 days at our trailer at Mylie's. Good fishing, not great. Had to work harder for them. Many of our usual spots were not producing. Fished a big reef to the West and did very well dragging bouncers, spinners and crawlers. Fish were off the reef in 20-25 FOW. Worked shorelines East of Morson and got our bigger fish there. Also spent some time in Miles and caught a lot of fish around the islands and NE corner.Had to do a lot of sorting to keep the ones we wanted. Many of our friends fishing with jigs didn't do very well. Seems the fish were scattered. Some nice muskies caught out of our camp. I didn't have enough time to try for them. Back in two weeks.
  9. Just got back from two weeks at Morson. Good fishing, not spectacular. Lots of nice fish - 16-18". Many fish around 15-16'. Most were caught on spinners and crawlers. Got some first week on reefs, but after wind, cold fronts and mayfly hatch started to pick them up back on shorelines, 17-20 FOW. Biggest was 25". Got 10 nice crappies in 29 FOW. Some still had eggs. Where we got the crappies the Mayflies were coming up so thick the locator couldn't penetrate. Didn't get to do any muskie fishing. Most guys said it was slow. Back in two weeks.
  10. We were up to our trailer for two weeks. Went Lake Trout fishing for two days. My two partners and I got four fish,up to 12#. Never saw another boat. Portage is OK with a few good men. Track is fine, cable still is kinked. We took a portable electric winch along. Sure helped. Whitefish side is low, hard to push a boat off. We took a 16' skiff which worked out well. We did real good on walleyes despite the weather. Caught all sizes in 12-16 FOW. Minnows and spinners opening day, crawlers got hot later in the week.
  11. Got home late Tuesday after four days at Morson. More snow than we expected. Little hard to get around. Did well on walleyes Friday night on Mylies Point. Saturday there was a Fisheree on the lake and it was packed from the narropws to Waldron Island. We tried a few other spots and did well on nice fish. Planned a trip to WFB for Sunday but we had a total whiteout all day long. Monday was beautiful and we fished nearby and did extremely well on walleyes. Best depth was 18-24'. Red glow jigs with a minnow head produced the most fish and #3 nickel/red Swedish Pimples also were good. Didn't get to try for crappies - ran out of time. Reports were a lot more snow up in Miles. Won't get back until mid April.
  12. Heading up on Friday. Trying to do it all. Walleyes, crappies, lake trout. Did you get your crappies in Miles or Hay Island? We have a place at Mylies. Where are you located? Email me if you wish: Dick
  13. Got home on Saturday after two weeks at the lake. Had great walleye fishing. Jigs and minnows 25-30 FOW, mostly current areas. One good day of crappie fishing, then they quit. Fished Thompson Creek area and Hay Island. Duck hunting for us was poor. Could have had more birds but we sat and watched the flights circle the decoys. It's not all about killing. Closed down for the season. Hope to get up for some ice fishing.
  14. Just got back from Morson. Had good walleye fishing. Deeper water 20-25'. Bottom bouncers and spinners. Minnows outproduced crawlers. Got most fish off shoreline points. Started getting more fish in current areas toward the end of the week. Did very well on crappies. We don't fish Obabikon, stay away from crowds. Duck hunting for us was very poor. Didn't see anywhere near the usual amount of ducks. Heading back in two weeks. Hopefully the divers will be down. Richard Moore "Baitmaker"
  15. Just got back from two weeks at Morson. Had good walleye fishing. Lots of fish in the 16-18" class. A few over 23" and lots of small fish. Fished points and shorelines, 16-25'. Bottom Bouncers and spinners, crawlers and minnows. Tried a few reefs, not much happening. Got 3 limits of crappies. Nicest fish we caught in a while. A few were 14" or better. A lot of very BIG perch. Didn't get to do any muskie fishing. Back after Labor Day to start our duck season. Richard
