Hey all:

So far we've got Condor, stfcatfish, Northlander and Poutslayer, and maybe Pigsticka's dad. Anyone else?

The meet starts at 8 a.m. on Lake 25 of Nelson Lake. Here are the directions.

From the intersection of Hwys 27 and 63 in Hayward, head north on 63 for 4.3 miles and take a left on Nelson Lake Road. Go half a mile on Nelson Lake Rd and take a right on Tanning Point Road. After traveling 7/10 of a mile on Tanning, turn right on Small Road. Go 2/10 of a mile, and the short road downhill to the landing turns off to your left. It is not marked at the turn as a landing, but you turn left just at the "Patrow's Pad" sign. Head out on the ice and turn right, where a quarter mile ahead of you you will see several permanent houses. They are sitting right on top of Lake 25.

Oh, the GPS coords for the turn off Small Road to the landing are: N 46 degrees, 05.103' and W 91 degrees, 25.955'.

Look for either a maroon 1997 Ford F-150 and/or a beat-up blue 1985 Chevy Silverado with a white topper. There may also be a green/yellow banner planted in the ice.

Northlander will bring his grill. I will bring my Coleman stove and a pot of chili. If beer is what you want, BYOB. grin.gif

Looks like we found a decent crappie/pike pattern there, but did not find the walleyes today.

See you there, and if you're not on the above list and want to go, just post a reply here.

Condor: No, I wouldn't do that to my worst enemy. Well, maybe my worst enemy. But doing that is a good way to MAKE enemies.

There are cribs around Lake 25 in several spots, marked on the Fishing Hot Spots maps, and there should be room for the five (even the six, seven, eight, nine, ten, if it happens) of us. Also, the pike tip-ups will be spread out shallower.

I was just wondering because of the thread on the red lake forum about rude people, it was more of a joke than a question

Shoot Dan, good chili, good brats, warm day, good company, short drive. You only live once man. grin.gif

Condor: Joke taken. See you tomorrow. grin.gif

And for those early birds who look at the posts at 5 a.m. instead of sleeping, here it is for NW Wisconsin: Saturday, m,ostly sunny, flurries in the morning. Highs 15 to 20. East winds 5 to 10 mph (Lake 25 is on Nelson Lake's east shore, so it will be COMPLETELY sheltered).

Saturday night, mostly clear. Lows zero to 5 below. South winds 10 to 15 mph.

Well, it was the four of us, after all.

Many crappies were caught, and after sorting through, one brought home a limit of fish up to11 inches, and the others brought home a bunch of fish, too. I got an 8.5 pound pike on tip-ups, and we all had chili and brats.

Not exaclty an FM meet, since we all knew each other already, but a nice day on the ice. grin.gif

Yes it was fun. Especially when Poutslayer Crapped his pants when the big ford honked the horn 2 FT. from his house! Wish I could have seen his face! By the way Stfcatfish you need to get some 50 pound test tip up line. Your hooking or should I say catching percentage is starting to look like Shaks freethrow percentage!!

    • 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?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!
