Alright, we can post. Thanks for gettin' on that Catman, good job. Nice to see there's some banter goin' on already. Glad to see the participation. I'll do my best to check in and post when I get out as well, my time is a bit limited however, especially during the week. I live in Northwest WI. as does Catman, matter of fact, we are about three blocks from each other. We have hooked up a few times, but he has yet to show me that pike action he speaks of. Actually, I prefer crappie, or walleye fishing, but I like to think I have an open mind for something different. Anyway, we'll keep you informed when either, or both of us get out. It might not always be good, but, you know, that's fishin', right? Looking forward to sharing info, and possibly meeting/fishing with some new buds.

Set the Hook!!

Remember our fishless Lake Owen trip last winter?

It was on the southwestern end on the north side of the lake, looking for those unmarked rock humps.

I had all my good luck for pike on tip-ups on the eastern of the two "rabbit ears" on the other end of the lake. Gotta 4X4 through the national forest road to get to that access. You know the one, right across the road from Bass Lake and by the campground. There's a gravel bar sloping toward deep water and some weeds, too.

The public access on the western rabbit ear looks good too, because there's a good weedline next to deep water near that access. That's where I'll probably try this winter. It's a heck of a lot easier to get to. smile.gif

We'll have to do a trip or two for pike, then you can guide me too a couple good walleyes spots to go with the crappie spot you showed me last winter. And I know you know way more about Owen than I do. grin.gif

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
