Thanks

Good job on the name!!!!
Talked to a co-worker that went out off the S-curves south of Washburn last week before the rain . He said that there was 4-5 inches but it was pretty hairy because it was windy.
He said it was pretty slow only 4 flags and nothing on jigging.Hopefully myself I will beable to get out there after the holidays.

good luck!

FLAGG!!!!

OK, you got me there.

What in the world are the "s-curves" South of Washburn? I fished around Washburn in the summer and fall, but never saw or heard of anyone refer to an "s-curve" before.

Robert,

Great to see ya here. Probably won't be up for ice( not cause I don't want to-- would love to try for the splake and browns ), but I WILL be up in May and/or June for the smallies and would appreciate any info, even though local bait stores and guides do a great job of posting elsewhere on the net.

Even so, keep posting on the ice --- I might not be able to fight the urge to come up.

I would like to come up and fish the bay for smallmouth and walleye. I hear there is a pretty nice motel there in Ashland to stay at. What would be the best plan of action? Go to the bait shops and ask around? Any tips as to timing would be appreciated. Good fishing.

Lots of motels in Ashland. The pretty nice one will probably run you 2 bills a night though-- not including wine and cheese. Was up there last June and it seems there's a price war midweek. Curvecrest had a sign out advertising $29.99 for a double bed. Looked nice enough and I'll be checking it out this May. Last year we camped north of Drummond to save some money-- about 30 min. from Asland depending on how many roadsides you stop at smile.gif.

Hey robert492 when those perch wont bite drop a 100th oz white glow jig down tipped with a spike and see what they do.
When we leave Club 13 and drive north the highway is always nothing but s curves.

Robert or anyone else on the board. I will be coming up to the bay the weekend of the 25th. I've never ice-fished it before, and am looking for someone to answer the tons of questions I have. My email is [email protected]

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
