  2. Hi Scott, i would like to sign up for august 18-22, that fits my work schedule better, thanks
  3. FYI for those starting at the cabin tomorrow August 13, I actually won’t be arriving until weds evening August 14. See you then. ericg
  4. Oh no that's terrible to hear that he is gone
  5. I just took the last spot Would actually prefer the second week as it would fit my work schedule better, if anyone decides they want to trade let me know.
  6. I did get out for a few hours in the afternoon. Only caught 3 smallies but some good size- a 17 and a 16. Largest one came on suspending jerkbait and was my first ever suspending jerkbait fish ( thanks to Pauls suggestion). Rapala Xrap XR-8
  7. Hi Paul, i have another event in rockford sat am so wont be able to do the float , ill probsbly hit the kish for a spot hop in the afternoon. Will try to make it to breakfast though: still Cherry Valley Cafe at 9 am? ericg
  8. I had a slow day, picked up one decent smallie 13 or 14 inch range and thats all. spent most of the outing paddling rather than fishing as I chose a longer stretch than I should have with the time that I had available. EricG
  9. My CPAP does run on my trolling battery BTW. Have had it in tents before. Eric
  10. Would love to be there but have to help my Mom move that weekend. Sometimes Mom comes first! Eric
  11. Absolutely, thanks for the help. Eric
  12. I like "The Fish Grip" plastic, lightweight, works well. I also keep it tied to my kayak while kayaking and clip it to a tree branch to hold position sometimes. Leaving it tied to the kayak anchor trolley rope I can clip a large pike by the lower lip and let go of it, the plastic grip holds it for me. Haven't tried this device for wading, just for in kayak. eric
  13. my brother Tim and I had a nice float, we each had a smallie caught at the put-in before even getting the boats in the water. double digits for each of us as well. nothing bigger than 14". My brother also got two Northerns and I also got a couple rock bass. Tim got most of his fish on a twister, I used Hula, senko, crank. Tried topwater a bit at first but no topwater action. Thanks to PaulT for showing us the put-in and take out points. EricG
  14. My brother is coming with me, we will both be kayaking EricG
  15. I plan to be there. plan to be kayaking. eric
  16. Actually Bart can have my entire slot if he wants: arrive 8/22 , leave Sat 8/25 as it looks like I won't be able to make it. Eric
  17. why can't you put it on the side? Thats where mine have always been. Just behind the left side wheel. EricG
  18. I'm fine with a bulky front so I can have a thin back panel on the vest. I don't find the bulky front a problem. main thing is a vest comfortable enough while paddling that you will actually wear it. I promised my wife I would wear the vest all the time on rivers while kayaking which I feel is a good idea. Don't always wear it on ponds. I prefer a vest designed for paddling comfort rather than one designed to hold lots of fishing lures etc. EricG
  19. with that many people we might want to split up and try a couple different access points/routes. I have options in mind. EricG
  20. I am planning to be there. EricG
