The Name Game

23 posts in this topic

Just curious if everyone else gives their spots a name? I know I do as well as some of the guys I fish with. I find it much easier to communicate a spot versus saying, “well you know the bend with wood right by the sandbar by the deeper water” laugh

Here our some of our names:

The Wall

Creek 57

The Rocks

The Jungle

Grampa’s Bend

Sheetpond Creek

47 squared 52

King Cat Hole

The Tombstones

The Wreck

The Powerball

Nope I just ask if we should Head up or head down. Depending on their answer I will know which spots to head too. I'm the captain and they putting it in my hands to find and locate the kitties. So saying that, I get the sh*t at the end of the night if I don't find them.

"anchor rock"

On a lake the family goes up to in Ontario, there's a submerged rock formation that is out in the middle of open water, big drop off from maybe just under the water's surface to 80 FOW 20 feet from the peak. If you don't know it's there, it can be a real hazard to anyone really flying across the lake, if the water level is perfectly wrong. Its a proven producer of lake trout. One day we anchored there, and wouldn't you know it the anchor got stuck. We couldn't budge it, and the wind wasn't cooperating.

After a half hour of thinking we were SOL and lost an anchor, I tied a bobber on the rope so we could leave the anchor and rope, and find the rope again and try the next day. Luckily the wind wasnt against us and we were able to pull out in the opposite direction to get it unwedged from whatever it was stuck on.

We then dubbed it "anchor rock".. lol

    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
    • Spotted it on the way back from getting wood and tried to sneak up on it. 
    • Hawg - please take down my post - didn't mean to offend or break any rules     
    • I looked it up on google and found it but not the sprinkler it was $12.99. I don't remember what it was.
    • Just went home for lunch and....he's back.
    • Within the last few days the bluejays have discovered my suet cakes.   Also have a hairy woodpecker that has appeared recently.
