Chequamegon Bay Grab Bag

8 posts in this topic

Well, things are heating up quick here, ice fishing speaking, on the pond in my backyard... Great to have these cold temps so early, as usually, it takes a lot longer to get a good solid freeze over this water. The entire Chequamegon Bay is now frozen solid, and we have been marching farther and farther each and everyday on new fishing holes in search of trout and salmon, walleyes,smallmouth bass, whitefish, perch, and pike. Even farther north, into the Apostle Islands area, we are seeing ice formation earlier then usual. This ice makes it look promising for an early start at our fantastic Lake Trout fishery through the ice.

Fishing wise, things have been nothing sort of fun and exciting, with some big fish being hooked and landed on our recent trips.. You just never know what you'll hook into next out here!!!

Been busy lately.. Sorry I havent responded earlier.

Fishing has been sporadic again this past week.. Rising and falling barometer, day after day.. just plain stinks.. But, still some fish being caught..

Bono is still putting out some fish in 15 to 26 FOW, near the lighthouse in 26 to 30 FOW, and off the coal dock in Washburn in 20 out to 40 FOW.. Thats all I will mention, due to other areas having questionable ice right now.

Good luck.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
