  3. Had a good time fishing with the 2nd group. My largest were 19” and 18.5”. I didn’t have high numbers but every day had fish 17” or above. I caught smallies on whopper plopper, wacky senko , Ned rig senko, hula, small swim bait, and even one on Bart’s fly rod with a streamer. Got pike most days too. Largest pike 26”. Bart caught so many 19” fish on the fly rod by the end Jim gave him the nickname “Mr. Nineteen”. 😀
  4. Thanks for posting guys! At least now i dont have to feel so discouraged about heading up there in such high water though i know I wont get the size or numbers these guys are getting
  5. Water level still high but improving, about at the level we had when i went on the trip a few years ago.
  6. Hi Jim, I will be there same days as you and will also be kayaking. We can all help each other with kayak shuttles. There are public access points every few miles perfect for kayaks. 5$ per day for a tag that goes in car and is good for all the wisconsin public access points all day. EricG
  7. I am requesting to be changed to the aug 11- aug 15 slot if still available

  12. Oh no that's terrible to hear that he is gone
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. My CPAP does run on my trolling battery BTW. Have had it in tents before. Eric
  18. Would love to be there but have to help my Mom move that weekend. Sometimes Mom comes first! Eric
  19. Absolutely, thanks for the help. Eric
  20. 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
  21. 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
