Its been very nice weather up here for this time of year. Not too hot and humid. The lake trout are still hitting jigging but trolling seems to be working a little better.

Braided line. A scam on the North American fisherman

FISH CAN SEE LINE! The new fishing  lines all the tackle places sell today, ie spider wire, triple braid, etc are not necessary. They are made to pull 8 pound bass out of heavy cover, or cast for large northern and musky. But most people have them on ALL their reels. For walleye, trout, andContinue Reading

High water is causing logs and debris

The hi water is causing a lot of logs and other things to be pulled off of the shore line. A boat hit a floating log a few days ago and completely ruined our stainless steel skag protector. It did save the lower unit which saved the 2 guys $1500, so be very careful. TheContinue Reading

Mosquito Hell

Unfortunately I’ve never seen the Mosquitos as bad as they are this year. It is making going to a portage lake almost unbearable. Something has happened to make the perfect storm for mosquito hatching. On the good news the last storm just missed us to the south and dumped huge amounts of rain that IContinue Reading
