Is anyone besides me getting excited to fish the BIG V? I have never been on the lake but I am very excited. There must be others in the series that are getting excited.

Also, what part of the lake are we going out of? I have a map of the lake but won't know where the heck I am going? A little info on which part of the lake we are staying on may help me get started.ScottS

I'm pumped for it. I have never fished the lake either. I will have to take a little vacation and pre-fish that week before! It's a big lake, I don't want to jump in a boat Sat. morning in complete confusion!
Anyone else thinking of heading up there early?

Find Hoodoo Point (southern area near Tower?)on the map, Scott. Somewhere in that area, but I don't know where exactly!

Guidemans said his place is 5 minutes from Hoodoo point which is down in Pike Bay. I know that My partner and myself, along with Fishhead and Grabs will be up prefishing on Friday. We are going up on Thurs night.

Hey Guys,
I must say I'm really looking forward to meeting all the guys from FM.com. smile.gif
My place is very easy to find, I'm on the west end of Pike bay, which is on the east end of the lake.

Just take 169 north 17 miles to the "Y"
store and take a left on county Rd 77.
There is also a billborard for Fortune
bay casino on the corner. Go 1.2 miles
and you will see my sign on the hwy.

Hwy 169 is 4 miles past the last stop light in Virginia. Make sure you don't take the turn in town it goes the other way. It happens all the time! smile.gif
The fireside seminar starts around 7:00
pm and goes until......whatever!

See you then! smile.gif

GullGuide-make sure you remind me about that radio before you leave! I have so much dump on my mind right now, I can easily forget smile.gif

Hammer'em- I'll be around, maybe we should get together and share some info to get a head start on Gull's team! Team ScottS and Gull were heavy competition last year wink.gif

Thats it, after my tournament this weekend in Brainerd I am going to keep heading North. That should put me in Tower on Sunday evening and give me a full two weeks to prefish!! Ok, well I would have to have a job like Pwaldo does to pull that one off grin.gif

Jim, since you are not fishing maybe you could throw some of us who are not going to be prefishing a bone. I keep looking at the map and it looks like lots of water, lots of structure and lots of areas to lose my lower unit!! Hopefully that translates to lots-o-fish!

Guideman, is your place in Pike Bay?ScottS

Hey Bob O,
I do have a ramp in my yard, it can handle most boats unless you need alot of water to get it off the trailer.

There is a puplic ramp in Pike bay or you can launch at Vermilion house boats
right next door for $5.00.

I should have enough dock space for all that stay at my place. My neighbor and I, each have 100ft docks. smile.gif

Guideman,
Thanks for the directions to your place. Are you planning to have all of us launch and park at your place, or is there a nearby public launch and we could boat to your place?

If you plan to offer your place, how early can we launch on Fri morning without bothering anyone?

    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
    • Big Dave I'm thinking it's a mountain lion or maybe a catamount. 
    • Sorry guys didn't realize posting a video would cause such a controversy! 😆. Anyways, yes, isolated cover has been what has seemed to work great for me, especially on pressured lakes. As far as catching bass goes, it's what I target 90% of the time in summer simply because I love the fight! Spring and winter I mostly target walleye then.
    • Wow did Butler look good lastnight! Saw a lot of things (particularly in the 4th quarter) that show this team is NOT very good without Butler. Apparently the fans have no ill will towards him, as they MVP chant was getting pretty loud.
