The last few reports or posts I have written or participated in "last week in ELY" and "Blue lake Blahhhs" both fishing reports got over a hundred views before they even got a responce.

Without feedback and or comment, it is understandable that people are not posting newer reports.....

Guys, this is typically the slow season on the internet forum. Most members are spending a lot more time outdoors. I was out this morning on Bald Eagle. Fished a while and had to get off the lake cause the wind was really starting to whip up pretty good. After the storms last night, the fishing wasn't really good.

Guys, this is typically the slow season on the internet forum. Most members are spending a lot more time outdoors.

Actually I find that my unsatisfied hunger for open water fishing (after sitting around all winter drooling about it) has worn off to a different level.

I've gone on a couple really nice trips and have caught some nice fish. Now, with the weather getting HOT (yuck!) I find I'm a little less interested in getting out. And besides, my "honey do" list was getting out of control eek

I know some of you guys will go out in just about anything, but for me May, June, Sept, and Oct are the months I enjoy fishing the most and I try not to let other things get in the way.

I'll still go out now if I get the chance, but I don't give it as high a priority as my prime months. Put another way, I don't neglect as much responsibility during the summer like I do during "prime time."

I'm on the net every day anyway so it's easy, and fun, to keep up to date on the posts. I do miss the volume of posts this time of year. Just because I don't get out as much doesn't mean I'm less interested in the sport.

Okay, I went out on a small local lake Thursday. Fish count 2 eyes, one 19" one 16", 2 nords too small to talk about, 2 small bass. I guess I am in a "2" rut. Doesn't matter though, the walleye sure tasted good for dinner.

Nothing exciting, but here's a report for you. Went out with a friend yesterday from 12-3 and we pulled in 22 bass. All were between 14-17". They were all caught in 8-12 FOW on an outside weedline on a wacky rig. It was tough conditions with the wind, but we were actually glad there was a "breeze" because otherwise the heat would have been a lot worse.

I do think it would be nice if some of the "looky looo's" would add a post or two. Lets see as I sit here there are 187 registered users, and 421 guests viewing the site. A lot of people looking to find some "free information" and not give anything back.

Yea, it would be nice if everyone would register. You would be suprised what you can add here. Even if you don't think it's much you will be contributing. I still post during summer a lot. I have to sit in the office everyday and this keeps me going.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
