Sad Time Of The Year

Recommended Posts

Well the camper is all closed up for the year. The boat is home and all covered up. The docks and boat lifts are all pulled in.

I don't know why, but this season sure seemed to go by faster then most. Time to start thinking about Christmas I guess.

Mary,

Yep this summer sure flew by. I was hoping for some nice warm weather till deer hunting so I could continue to fish. But no luck. My boat is also stored for the winter. How sad frown.gif driving away watching it just sitting there. Oh well can't wait for next year!

Happy Fishing smile.gif

We took the water out but are still hoping for one more weekend. I agree, it seems like this summer went way too fast. I sure do not want to think about Christmas! UGH

It isn't too cold to shore-fish!! I like building a small fire and hoping for some tasty cold-water fish. TIP - pre-tie as much as ya can - too chilly for my fingers to tie a clinch knot in clear mono!!

Hi Mary - I think he flushed out the motor - but then again who knows! grin.gif I was driving by Big Cormorant today and it was snowing and saw two guys out fishing by the channel - not sure if they are brave or nuts. Way too cold for this gal.

YOU HAD 4 INCHES OF SNOW???? Way to early for that I hope it all melts fast. We had a few flurys here last Wed but it melted the minute it hit the ground thank goodness.

Well, after removing 4" of snow off the canopy on the boat I guess we have given up and are putting it in storage this weekend. This is way too early - I do not like this - I am not happy - I hate winter! Need I say more? grin.gif

Oh yes - 4"! It has all melted except what fell off of the top of the arena. But, we have a winter advisory for 2-5" today. My husband the construction worker keeps praying for snow so they can shut down. I am thinking about a gun! grin.gif

    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days 
    • A gill getter jig(horizontal) and a "flipper" jig(vertical) are the first two to go on the line for sunfish.   Crappies are kinda my kryptonite, so i usually throw the box at them till something works. I am still a meat fisherman, plastics have been very productive at times however.
    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • 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.
