I was just wondering how everybody did this weekend. Where did you go and how well did you do? I and moparmarv tried it but the wind and cold won... Thats the way it goes... Will have to try this again next week..

We went out on Washington on Sat. Didn't do to bad. Had to move around a couple of times. had some people set up almost right on top of us. Was unbelievable. Would be sitting out fishing and next thing you know someone is sitting up right next to you because they saw you catch a fish. Would move to a different hole and pretty soon here they came again. Finally moved to a different part of the lake.

I had luck catching Crappies this weekend but was surprised best came mid afternoon on my largest spoons tipped with a fathead right off the bottom. I usually use smaller spoons and get then suspended. Who knew!

Had a wonderful Crappie bite Friday night and Saturday night...and Saturday in the day we caught three nice Northerns with sucker minnows on tip-ups. This was on Spring Park Bay (tonka).....no Waldos though which was frustrating.

This first time I dropped my jigging Rap down the hole on Saturday, I caught a 13" perch. The bite was on!

It was really slow where I was, marked a lot of fish but couldnt get them to commit.

Got a couple crappies, and saw a couple walters taken too of the shoreline structure.

    •   Stayed home for the 4th this year, was amazed how quiet the cities seemed to be. "Is everybody up north?"
    •   I sure like the sites your old campground kept open for weekenders. Best spots in the campground if you ask me.    
    • so leech, does your campground have festivities functions for there permy site people? ours had a big fish fry on the fourth with a little parade. they do a golfing event to. i heard they finally got some decent playground equipment for kids. there theory was theres fishing. they used to do a pot luck with a theme german, mexican..bleah blah.....but that required work and planning from the owners. took away from the beer drinking! 
    •   I have noticed that trend at seasonal campgrounds too. 20 some years ago when we started camping seasonal sites used to be full of folks 60+ but now it seems that there are a lot of young families in these sites.    The other trend I noticed is that lot rental prices have gone through the roof since then. 
    •   Well in the 12 years we have been at this campground it went from mostly old folks where if your Walker wheel was squeaking someone would run out with a can of WD-40 to stop the noise! Now a lot of young families with kids. Most of the year it's not to bad, but the Holidays can get a little crazy with the golf carts and beer flowing!   I don't let folks bother me much, I have two young grandsons so their in the mix!
    • I have definitely come to the conclusion that on those big 3 day holiday weekends its way more quiet and peaceful if i stay put at home.................even up north. hey i can have a fire and have cocktails at home too!!!!!!! the weekends to go are weekends prior to and after them big weekends!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Pretty much the same on enforcing some of the rules. The 4th was a Zoo and I'm sure the managers head was spinning trying to keep track of who all the kids running belonged too!
    • well it didnt help our family has a cabin up in itasca county and have had it since 1965. the camper took time away from there. granted the camper was 30 minutes from home the cabin 3 1/2 hours but there is agood city block of woods between us and the neighbor.............and we have noone on the other side. i dont mind a little socoilizing but that peace and quiet is right up my ally.   so leech does your park charge extra for additional company not your immediate family? the campground we were at did, but they didnt enforce it fairly. some were forced some got to slide. oh and there were alot of other issues i got fed up with!!!!!!!
    • No ones making fun leech. Just made a statement. I've never seen one like that before. I've seen the hand ones curved, but not the powered one. Guess it could be like the hand one. I could be wrong. Be interested to see if they sold one like that, or someone put a power head on it. I'll let you take over now.
