Guess What I'm Going Again

Recommended Posts

Yes tomorrow morning I'm headed back to our little camper by the Lake and I'm not planning on coming home again until Sept 30th. Don't have that much good fishing time left so I've got to take advantage of it well I can. I'm going to fish for Walleyes and Crappies mostly but I'll have to see what them frisky Bluegills are up to while I'm at it well then who knows I might run accross a school of White Bass or a batch of hugh Perch and if I'm really lucky I might have a big Northren take my bait. I guess what it comes down to I'll be fishing for what ever is biting at the time. grin.gif Hopefully I'll have some good fish stories to share with you when I get back.

HAPPY FISHING <><Mary><>

I for one just want to state that I do not think it is fair that Mary gets to go fishing while I have to go to work!!!!

However we did catch a nice batch of sunnies and bass on Sunday so had fresh fish for supper. Just hope we can make it for a couple more weekends before we have to put the boat away.

Have a great time Mary - believe me the rest of us will be thinking about you as we slave away! HA!

Well gise plans were changed and I came home Monday night. Haven't had time to come on here till now but thats really funny Hawkeye I don't know who you seen but it wasn't me. Now if you would stop over to the camp ground and interduce your self like you said you were going to do awhile back you'd know who we are when you see us out there. We have a 17ft Spectrum with a 70hrs Force moter on it. We were pretty lucky over the week end on Saturday before the rain came we caught 2 Crappie 2 Walleye and 10 hugh White Bass. We gave some away to friends and had a nice fish supper last night and 2 packages are in the freezer for this winter. We arn't done for the year yet though. We will be going back for a few more week ends before we take the boat out and the docks out and close up the camper for the winter. Now Hawkeye if it was a week from yesterday that you seen a lady out there fishing. That was a good friend of mine she has a Star Craft boat. She's packed up and gone for the year now, but if you see her out there next year stop and talk to her she knows more about fishing then any one I've ever met and more then willing to share where the fish are biting at.

Maryjil--

You mention the end of fishing. What is the practical end of the (non-ice) fishing season? Particularly for us shore-fishers. Is it a matter of the fisherperson's ability to stay warm, or is there a temp range at which they go so deep you might as well not bother freezing your butt shore-fishing?

Just trying to figure out how many weekends are left...

Thanks!

FishGirl, Hello its nice to see you here. There is no end to fishing go for it as long as you can stand the cold. What I meant was the end of our season at the lake which was today. We closed up our camper pulled in our dock and brought the boat home. This is always a sad time for me because I know I won't be back up there until next spring and the winters can be so long some times. I enjoy fishing from shore also but I'll admit it I'm a fair weather fisherwomen most of the time. I have never ice fished but I'm hoping to give it a try some time this winter. We have had a pretty good summer there is enough fish in the freezer to last the winter even thow this was a different year for fishing. You keep fishing as long as you can the fish are really hungry right now and are trying to fatten up for winter. Lots of luck and keep us posted on your fishing. <:><Mary><:>

That's the answer I was hoping for! Yeah, I figured you were talking about the pulling of the boat, but I was just wondering if there was a point at which the fish would go too deep to get at the from shore or something like that.

Thanks! Glad I don't have to give up until my comfort becomes the issue. Been busy and haven't made it back out for several weeks, and I see the calendar relentlessly clicking toward....Winter!!

    • I think 2 out of 3 actually gets them in for sure.  Washington, Eagles, and Carolina are the next 3 teams and they are all in worse shape then we are.  Washington is on their 4th QB, Eagles looks to be without Wentz against the Rams this week, and Carolina has lost the last 5 in a row and has to face the Saints 2 out of the next 3 weeks.    No matter what there is going to be a lousy team in the 6th seed.       
    • Well even if the Vikings happen to sneak thru the back door into the playoffs, there are 20 other teams that would be happy to be in that spot.     And who knows, anything can happen when you get into the tournament. AND NO I'm not drinking purple Kool aid.  Yet!!
    • The Vikes are a dumpster fire right now for sure!    Glad they ditched Flippo, that was a failed experiment. Really hoping they get rid of Priefer soon, too, as our special teams have been far from special for the last few years.    They don't deserve to make the playoffs at this point, but if they win out, they will make it.  Will this move propel them to make a run if they do make it?  Anything is possible, but we all know what happens to the Vikes in big-time games. So, I'm not gonna hold my breath!     
    • A way to kill the prion. As far as I know, it survives indefinitely. If we can kill it, we actually have a chance of wiping it off the face of the earth.  Until then, it's a winless battle, IMO.    As far as your last comment, not sure why that was brought up if you weren't directing it at me, or at least think I fit this generalization... Not sure where in any post that I have ever made, you'd get the slightest idea that I was the type of person you describe. While I am for limited govt, and reeling in some rules and regulations, I am overall an adamant supporter of most of our fish and game laws. When it comes to what is currently taking place to "control" CWD, I don't think it's working, and I think other avenues need to be explored in more detail. I've stated that I'm pretty fluid on my opinion on CWD, so part of me sees what is taking place as maybe being necessary, but, seeing the end results thus far, it appears to not be working.     
    • Only 10 years? Seems like much more.......😉😁😄
    • Sounds pretty friggin awesome to me. Still, for the couple hundred that it costs spraying is definitely worth it
    • I would bet the first time you seen it the OH Ship factor came to mind.
    • Thanks all for the feedback. The very first time I visited Upper Red - it was with Johnny P and he was awesome.  However he was not out on his own like he is now.  I've followed him over the years and am impressed with his  new setup.....probably time to give him another shot with his new outfit. After the folks that Johnny was with sold their houses to Beacon Harbor...I just followed the houses and have been using them.  Super nice people.  Always willing to offer some tips as well as move the house whenever I ask. The reason I think Upper Red and Beacon Harbor appeals to me is that when I fly in (from Utah), I can rent my car - pick up groceries - and drive out to the house.  I only have to pay for the house rental.  Other places I've looked at on LOTW pretty much have you coming in each night...so you pay for a day house and you pay for lodging at night. Going with others - where they take you out to your hut - I guess I just need to figure out how to pack things better so I don't feel like I am an inconvenience.     When I do come up - its usually by myself.  I enjoy the solitude.  4-5 days in a house in almost total silence.  Bliss.  However there have been times when I have brought a friend or last year I brought my son for his first trip.  He will be coming again with me this year. I guess another part would be expenses.  Depending on the flights available...I'm spending $600-$900 just on travel to get there.  So that takes a bit of my budget and forces me to look for the most cost effective options.  Double that if I bring my son. Maybe I'll skip next year and be back in 2020....I'll save my allowance and have a bit more to put towards Johnny or even a different lake.   Thanks Rundrave, I'll try the bigger options to draw them in.  I guess I am not use to using the larger baits just because of the way I am use to ice fishing.  I have the tackle....just need to be confident enough to give them a try!   I do have electronics...if I see fish I can usually catch them.  I agree - Its most likely location and no fish rather than not being able to catch the fish that are there.   Because I fly in and have to fit everything in my bag - I usually don't pack my outdoor gear (parka, bibs, boots, etc.).  But a few years ago I packed an extra bag with all that and then spent a day out of the house and hired a guide to take me out.  It was Brian "Bro".  And it was awesome.   I guess maybe I just need to change my frame of mind.  Plan better with being able to bring my gear, get more mobile, explore other options.   I loved my experience with Johnny.  I'll look up Cookie as well.   Thanks again for all the feedback - truly appreciated. If any of you will be on the lake the 27-31....feel free to stop by and say hello!
    • Well yesterday marks 10 years of craziness on this web page for me.  The time has gone by fast and I have met a lot of great folks along the way. I tried to do a slide show but I’m just not that good on that stuff so here is a long group of pictures of just some of the folks I have met and enjoyed fishing, GTG's and sledding with from this site. There were many more met at GTG’s and other fishing and sledding trips but I just didn’t get pictures of them all. 🙁 Some I met just for one outing and others I have done many trips with over the years. I joined to mainly “Leech” fishing and hunting ideas and spots off all you folks but instead I met and had great times with a lot of you.  Meeting and getting out in the Outdoors with folks is what this site should really be about along with sharing ideas.  Here’s to the next 10 years and all the adventures to come! 🙂 Leech~~ Matts.bmp J's fish.bmp
