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!!

    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗    
    • I picked up some impulse mayfly plastics and mud bug jigs. I have tried plastics in the past with mixed results. I expect good things from the impulse mayflys. It would be nice not to have to mess with live bait.
