That is certainly a good start and may be enough although I was thinking it will take a 20 win. Lake I was on the dock was out and my waders sprung a leak. I did not have any bass that topped the 19 mark. Will see how Sunday morning goes. The pike bite today was much hotter then then the bass for me.

I am unable to get out this weekend, but I did run into Shannon Olson who caught a 21.5" Bass on Chisago Lake, DT6 in 6' fow. I saw picts. He asked me to post, as his computer is down. He said he saw you out there Deitz and he will drop by later to show you the picts as he can't post them.

FYI - I was out earlier in the week and did pretty good, both size and numbers for a change.

Really nice fish Deitz.... Way to go...

I fished Gull Lake this afternoon for about 3 hours... Caught a number of nice fish on a Big White 3/4 oz Northland Spinner Bait with a white plastic trailer. Most of the fish came from the Pencil Reeds... biggest was 18.5 inches and 3 were right at 17 inchs. Also several smaller fish... Would have been a nice bag is a tournament! Had a really large fish grab my spinner next to a dock but lost her.. Would have taken a pic of her for sure... She would have given you guys a run for your money..... Hey, that's how it goes some days... Sure do love the fall fishing!!!

I did not see another person on the lake bass fishing....The boats that I did see were all fishing walleye's. I just wish I could have gotten out early this am.... I think the monrning bite would have been really good.

Will be interesting to hear how others do today.... sure did cool down this afternoon up this way.... Gull Lake is right at 60 degrees.

Good to see some nice fall bass. I did not get anything over 18 on Saturday when I was out. I did get a few pic of some 15 and 16 inchers in for practice. I had to practice and ensure I was ready when in counted.

It been some time since I posted pics and notice my avatar is even gone it been so long. I do hope to at least post my little guys so I have something to show for my time on the water.

Also once a winner is determined I will send off a Senko to the weekend champ.

Wormer,

You are supposed to have the fish laying on the board so its clearly visible on the size. Mouth closed, tail pinched.

This is what is being looked for in the pics.

    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?  
    •   5 years at one campground until they went private and wanted 60-70g's per lot with one-just-like-silly-me-o-en fees which were about what we were paying yearly already on top of that!  12 years where we are now with way bigger lots.
    •   Too bad the previous owner didn't know what they were doing. Never, ever use silicone on a rubber camper roof. I learned that the hard way many years ago.....   At least you have a good reason to have to go to the camper this weekend    How long have you been doing the seasonal thing?
    • Thanks for the reply, sounds about like what I expected and I really like the square tubing on the otters compared to clams round cheaper setup. Anyone seen any changes to the new otter lineup for this year? 
    • Last weekend spent some time re-sealing a small seam leak on a trim edge. Found out the owner before us had a leak on the same trim edge spot and left out a screw!! Also washed down the canopy and the ever reoccurring black streaks around the roof edge.   This weekend may go back and clean out and reseal a few other areas the passed own made a mess of sealing with sillycone! Using Butyl rubber this time as silicone can be pulled right off after a few years.
