  1. Terry Dodge & I are in provided we are in good health leading up to the trip. We will take our temperatures prior to leaving and would not go if showing any symptoms.
  2. You are welcome Gordon. Over the years you have been very generous with me on your knowledge of rivers and access points throughout Wisconsin. I'm glad I finally had the opportunity to pay it back with a gem of a section I discovered on my own while vacationing up there. Something that was relatively close to your home that offered trophy potential. Good luck on your guiding efforts. I've always enjoyed my float outings with you. You are very knowledgeable and have a lot to offer as a guide. The best advice I could give you is to try to outfit your float rig to cater to the fly fisherman. Maybe some type of stand up platform. From what I've seen the fly fisherman tend to invest more into this type of guiding services.
  3. I like the KVD squarebill cranks. Crawfish or shad patterns are my favorite colors. I like suspending jerkbaits over cranks early in the spring and late fall. The jerkbait bite has not been good this spring for some reason.
  4. Google Earth in combination with a Gazetteer is a great way to scout out river access. Sounds like a fun little adventure.
  5. Thank you for all who attended, donated, and volunteered. It was another successful night for the conservation of our rivers and smallmouth bass.
  6. I think the dream is your subconscious telling you to move out of the big city and take up permanent residence in the Northwoods.
  7. I go with texposed as snagging = higher costs, more pollution, and less time with your lure in the zone. That elastech plastic is pretty soft so getting the hook through and into a fish is pretty easy. That does look like a good hook system. For my money I still like the value and effectiveness of the Charlie brewer slider heads.
  8. We should probably add that 90% of it is wadeable at regular to lower than average water levels.
  9. You can always go to Wisconsin to fish where the access laws are simple. Stay within the high water line and you are legal on any stream or river. I'm not sure why our state is different and confusing.
  10. It was nice to run into you and chatting for a while Joe. I did pick up 6 more on Christmas day so the fishing is picking up as the water temps rise. Perhaps we can get out together in our kayaks sometime in 2020. It's a lot easier with 2 cars at 2 bridges versus riding a bike or paddling upstream.
  11. This event is cancelled. The decision is easy as every branch is unsafe for floating not even close to fishable. This won't be able to be rescheduled for 2 weeks at least. That's too bad because September can be a great month to fish the Kish for smallmouth
  12. I understand. We did get some heavy rain last night and more on the way tonight. All branches came up significantly except the deep south branch. I could end up rescheduling if we get pounded by rain tonight.
  13. Ok ,I will move this float outing up to Saturday. The time and meeting place stay the same. There is an outfitter if you need to rent any equipment. I have a extra stuff also.
  14. At this point no one has jumped on expressing interest in going out on Sunday. I did have someone reach out to me and said that they could do it on Saturday. Would this trip garner more interest of we moved it up to Saturday? Feel free to call me if you have any questions about this outing. Paul T 815-540-7775.
  15. Well done Bill. That sums the 2019 ISA roadtrip. Scott does deserve a big thank you for handling all of the little details that go into making this happen and making it a success. There is pretty good value there considering the cost versus the quality of the cabin and its location.
