You didn't hear if from me but I heard those swimming dead logs are already in with all the rain and the cool summer, just don't tell anyone that I told you that.... smile

Should be out casting from shore tonight, no reason why they shouldn't be coming in.

Water temp yesterday was 76, I'm sure it's got to be lower today and tomorrow with it going to the mid 40's tonight.

Frankie - Did he ever have them?

Theres always a few stupid salmon in the river in august. Problem is its a gamble with bad odds, plus they run the river when its too warm and die. Lucky I know enough people up there to time things well. A few years ago a big pod of fish came in early and there were dead fish everywhere. The guys in the lake are reporting a good summer, lots of fish and good sized. Most of the activity is still deep so were on scheduel...

Tim and I fished the big O for some ellusive marble eyes and found a few around grin water temp is still 73*.If we keep haveing cold nights it will get better we didn't set the world on fire but we caught a few fish. The pics were blurry It might have something to do with the humidity and dampness but it shows there still is waldos in there

with no wind the fishing was not as good as it was last night I think tonight would have been a better early evening bite but who knows. I scratched a limit of nice eaters and Todd caught a couple, fished hard from 9:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. We had a good time busting chops about the band playing at the beach they were freaking horrible. Didn't know you could butcher a classic like "Freebird" like that and pay to get in...:D I landed a nice 4 pd. smallie... Good times Todd...

Good job guys.

I got out today and the word is that the bite has been zero and it was like that until we finally put something together. We were trying out deep and looking for fish but nothing and the humps were empty of walleye's but full of nice perch so we put our heads together and found something promising and going out tomorrow morning to put it to the second test. We ended up with 10 fish in 2 drifts and will update tomorrow.

Was out doing the bass thing the other night and stayed until it got dark. At sunset, I was looking at a very bright light at my 10 o'clock, boat in 6 fow casting in with a blue crome sexy shad . . . picked up 3 waldos. Landed a 14.5 and lost the smaller one and a larger one. Switched to a Frenzy, black and crome suspending, had one hit and later a big smallie. Lots of baitfish on the screen . . . also lots of white bass. If you guys haven't done it this Summer, now would be a good time to check your ice flasher batteries; connect, check and recharge to 100% and then disconnect.

Got a chance to fish a bit with Steve and Max, lake was very windy and rough. Didn't catch mych but I did catch this new digital camera it's and Olympus Stylus-550WP I bought this a.m. reading and getting used to it now. Here are some pics of the trip..

Only walleye Steve caught and it was earlier in the a.m. before I arrived. Max can't wait to take a bite out of this 20"er.

    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
    •   Have you tried to get it out in the water and running it at higher speeds for a while to see if it will clear it's self?
    • Trying to get some idea as to how much I will need to spend to get my 1997 Yamaha 30 hp running again.  The motor sat for nearly 11/2 yrs after I had bought it. before I got around to starting it in Oct.  I followed the owner's manual recommendation to use pre-mix 50:1 gas oil, even though it has oil injection.  Anyway, motor would start(Elec. start), not real quickly, but after starting, would begin to cough and then choke out after a few seconds.This happened repeatedly despite different choke settings, etc.until I finally thought it better to quit fooling with it.  Called a repair place in my hometown outside the metro and he wanted to wait till Spring to look at it.  Said it probably needs new carb kits or carbs and plugs.  Also want him to put in new impeller and lower unit seals. Just wondering what an ave. fair price would be to have that done, provided there isn't anything else wrong?  I live in SW Metro area, but really don't know where to take it around here that I trust anymore. any ideas, help would be greatly appreciated.  Repairman didn't want to give est. without looking at it.  Can't blame him, but don't want to get totally ripped off either.
    •   Actually, I have a case of 17 Beers left that I bought to the GTG last weekend still. Someone drank one! Since I'm not a big Beer guy I have been going over all the things I can make with beer. Beer Cheese soup, beard, fish batter, boil some wild rice venny brats in beer? Or just give it to one of my buddies?
    • Actually no one from either side, none, notta, zip.  
    • Large segments of the right and left are probably wishing they teamed up for Johnson right about now, they might not admit it but if they could go back and change their vote I wonder how many would. One thing is perfectly clear and that is neither Trump or Hillary was the answer. However they more than likely speed up the process of dumping the two party system so it's all good.
    •   If there is no easy money to be made the bad guys will do something else, you won't eliminate them completely unless you legalize everything but maybe they move on to something else. Take away that money and you solve a lot of problems at once for a lot of people. Not much incentive for people to sell hooch these days and it is as simple as that.

      I don't think you realize how bad the war on drugs is, we are talking world wide impact here. Heck in Mexico alone how many people are the cartels killing, it is a blood bath down there. Remove the millions that they make and that motivation is gone. How many police had been killed in drug related incidents in the past 50 years? The overdose deaths and accidents are going to happen no matter what you do, there is no stopping those but maybe you can prevent them with better treatment programs. You also have a massive prison population with large numbers of them incarcerated for drug crimes, now I'm now about letting violent offenders free but the rest of them are worth a look on a case by case bassi. Then you look at all of the above and all how all of their families have been affected by it. If you want to start helping people you need to start by ending the war.
