Best trip yet...

2 posts in this topic

Just back from three weeks in Canada and it was the best trip yet--fishing great, weather great, cabins and lakes were terrific. Started at Rainy Lake (Coppen's Resort)and once weather turned, on Thursday June 11, bass moved on to beds and we finished strong there. Top bass was 20", also got 7 in the 19-inch range, and a ton more over 18". Then my wife joined me and I flew into Grant Lake (Gateway North Outfitters)where the bass were also on bed, got a 20-incher first day, my wife got one 19 1/2 and we had great bass fishing. Next up, Pipestone (also Gateway)boat-in and the bass were still on bed. Tried not fishing beds, but didn't find much action away from the beds until the last day when I finally started getting some shallow and not on bed. But the fishing was simply spectacular in the areas where they were on bed. Finally, went to Kay Lake (Nestor Falls Outfitters)where bass fishing continued to be incredible and I finished up with some musky fishing and got a 36-incher. Can't say enough about the outfitters, I fished the spots they recommended and they were spot-on. Bout the only thing I could say that might be useful to others is that, at times, I did fish Gulp Alive leeches, right along side live leeches--and they worked just about as good. Saw lots of deer and beaver and it's a great change from South Florida...

Nice report. Heading up to Nestor Falls in a few days for a week of fishing. Fishing bass on beds is a bit controversial up North F.Y.I. I'm not going to try and lecture but just wanted to let you know. Anyways, thanks for the report kodiac!

    • Kuhn is right of course. And we have to keep in mind that political promises are the very life's breath for a politician. In most cases we have to assume their "promise" means they will initiate an effort to change or alter a policy or introduce a new program, not that they will create it from whole cloth. Of course a President does have selected powers to take action and when they do any decision they make is roundly attacked by the other party. It is time now to prepare for our first woman president and to perhaps give serious thought to whom we vote for in other congressional races. At a dinner/roast last night Mrs. Clinton was terrific. I don't know who wrote her stuff but he or she needs a raise or a spot on Sat. Night Live.  Ha Ha Ha
    • I agree with the other two folks and good luck
    • If you're looking for a great boot on a budget, look into Kamik boots. Made in Canada for harsh conditions.  I picked up a pair a few years back for like $40-$50, I believe they're rated to -40f or -70f. but with a good pair of socks, they work really well.  I have pretty bad circulation in my feet and they will keep me warm on the ice or in the deer stand all day long. Remember, if your feet sweat a lot and you're walking a fair distance, you're probably better off with a pair for hiking in with and then switching socks and boots for the long sit. 
    • 19 deer registered on day 1.  Roughly 829 hunters.   Sounds like our spot was pretty good yesterday!
    • Camping could be a lot of different activities, from backpacking or canoeing to parking a RV in a park.   Ask the doctor is the best answer.   be specific about the activities that you plan to engage in.  
    • What thread are you referring to, and why isn't it usable?   The smoker links? 
    • To be fair, she is walking around making all sorts of promises about things she says she will do as President. If she is just spewing hot air and can't actually do anything she is promimaybe the liberals should clarify that in the media because it appears to me her followers actually believe she can.
