    Isle Royale 2017

    Well it's that time of year for our annual trip to Isle Royale ,,, I'm bringing a camera this time and have my waterwolf underwater camera with too ,,, Hope to have another video of this years trip,,, the weather is not looking promising but the wind forecast doesn't look that bad
  5. Nice looking brown trout ,,, I picked up a 17lb brown out of Algoma a few weeks back

    Unruly nighcrawlers

    Does your fridge smell like fish???,,, Maybe they are trying to stay alive with the smell of predators in the fridge ,,, Maybe put a bungie around the flat to close any gaps
  7. The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike but no walleyes
  8. Heading down to Yellow Lake in the morning ,,,,, Recent reports from the opener weekend weren't stellar but the water has warmed up and spawning should be done ,,, Gonna try and get some crappie and walleye if they cooperate ,,, Pike shouldn't be a problem

    Add previous days wind to find a wind blown shoreline ,,,, Especially if fishing from shore Dang post is almost 2 years old

    Bait for the opener

    I will be pulling a shallow shad rap in 5-7 Ft on the wind blown shore line some where in Wisc,,, I like to avoid the frustration at the landing on opener ,,, But I do love the comedy
  11. Just caught a blip on the news about another new Invasive species found in Lake Superior ,,, What do we need to do ,, Put some of these invasives in the drinking water of our law makers water to make them do their job and stop this contamination of our waters ,,, Im pro mining but draw the line when it get too close to spoiling the clean unspoiled water of the BWCAW ,,, And you know whos gonna pay the price of Invasives in our lakes
  12. By Christmas ,,,, We have snow cover and lake effect is helping the higher elevations along the north shore ,,, Trying to be a little optimistic to get the season started

    Docks and lifts in by Opener?

    I go to Wisc for the Mn opener (less comedy at the landings) ,,, Spoke to my buddy that lives on the lake and he's skeptical if the ice will be out by the Wi opener let alone the Mn opener ,,,, Still 32 inches of ice in the Danbury area

    Favorite Vacation Place

    I like the Duluth area!!! ,,, You have Lake Superior (my favorite fishing lake) and several area lakes and the St Louis river for walleyes and musky close by ,,,, Vermilion isn't that far away ,, and there's the free air conditioning with an east wind during the summer,,, Sure it would be nice to have a cabin some where but my home is on 10 acres and I have the privacy and a lot of outdoor activities right out side my back door ,,, I lived in the cities for 40 years and cant deal with the traffic any more ,,, Rush hour up here is a school bus and a logging truck at a 4 way stop sign

    I watched a few boats launch from Two Harbors this morning ,,, Had to break thru skim ice to the end of the breakwall but they are out on open water fishing ,,, With all the sunshine we have gotten up here the NSST and the Taconite are rather dirty on the open south facing slopes,,,, My riding season is over with just about 1,000 miles on the sled for the season ,,,, Now to concentrate on those dang salmon out on superior

    Looking at the forecast,,,, Im thinking my riding season is just about over,,,, Got out and rode the Wisc trails around the Siren,, Webster area ,,, 8 inches of fresh snow was nice on the groomed trails ,,, some trails did not get groomed and we ended up breaking trail ,,, fun day but a short ride

    Got out for another good ride while the snow lasts ,,, Launched out of the Martin Rd lot and was surprised to find the trails freshly groomed from the nite before,,, Had lunch at the Pequaywam inn and then headed to Brimson ,,, Another freshly groomed trail ,,, Hooked up on the Yukon down to the NSST ,,, and another freshly groomed trail ,,, Hope we get the snow forecasted for early next week as with the sun hitting the trails they wont hold up well over the weekend ,,,Ride while you can !!!!

    New Snow, Groomed Trails

    We launched at Normana and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer

    Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving

    Switched direction today and rode the Taconite ,,, Unloaded just off 53 north of Virginia and headed west ,,, Picked up the Bear Skin to Cook and then the Wolf Track to the South Switch for lunch ,,,, Headed south and picked up the Taconite again ,,, Things got kinda slushy and lots of clicking on the trail ,,, Put a quick 129 miles on today and unless we get some good snow I am done riding for a while Hope you guys in the snow belt from mondays snow enjoy it ,,,, Lots of sleds on trailers heading north as I made my way home
