  1. We spent all last week in the Chippewa Bay area and it was pretty good. A fare amount of the female bass we caught were spawned out and that was great to see after the last couple of years. We caught plenty of smallies deep and shallow, loads of largemouths shallow, more than normal amount of both pike and bowfins. I love catching bowfins, they are one hell of a fighting fish and I would love to see more people get educated on them. I hear a lot of people saying they are snakeheads and you have to kill them. My son caught one while we were fishing beside one of my buddies and he hollered at us to kill that SOB, they eat all of the bass. I told him that fish doesn't kill near as many bass as he does so start releasing your bass. One of the highlights of the week was the school of crappie we ran in to. We were able to catch 39 balck crappies one morning and all of them were between 11" and 15". You can get a pretty good slab of meat off a 15" crappie. The next 5 weeks can't go fast enough so I can get back for another week.
  2. Thanks for the reports guys, I appreciate it. I would just love to see most of the bass have a chance to spawn before they get pounded too bad.
  3. It's just a few short weeks until I can spend a great week on the SLR. The past few years the water was cold and the bass were spawning when season came in and everyone was just hammering them. Does anyone know what the water temp is currently? I sure hope they get a chance to spawn out before the opener. I know down here in Pa the temp came up fairly quick and the smallies are spawning now.
  4. I'm helping a friend do some mods on a boat he just came across. It is an Odyssey 175SS made by Forest River. He wants to lighten it up some so he's looking to replace the plywood decks with aluminum. The problem is we can't figure out exactly how the carpeted plywood is fastened. The carpet is rolled under the edges so it wasn't put on after he plywood but there are no visible screw/rivet heads in the carpet. Does anyone have any experience with this brand and how they do things?
  5. I am not an expert by any means on the river but I would say that you are going to be very limited with shore fishing. I know when we are there my son does a lot of fishing from docks but that's about it. That is one thing about that area, virtually all of the shore lines are steep rocky banks with a tangled mess of trees. With all of that being said, rig them up a slip float and put on a 1/2 of a night crawler and they will catch something.
  6. Sorry, I can't be much help with the crappies. We only catch a few and they are all by accident.
  7. We fished all last week everywhere from Alex bay down to Blind bay. The large mouth fishing was fairly good but the smallies were really spread out. We caught a few more accidental Pike than normal but not a lot (while bass fishing). We also were able to get two eyes and a bowfin with some nice perch and crappies mixed in. All in all it was another great week on the St. Lawrence river . The worst part is now waiting until next June before we head back.
  8. I was up all last week and you really had to keep an eye out for floating debris. There wasn't a ton of it but you had to be mindful.
  9. This was going to be my exact post except for I've been using my black and decker for at least 20+ years and its still the original set of blades. I've used it on every type of panfish, bass, pike, trout and who knows what else. The new Bubba cordless look very inviting but that sure is a lot of new fishing lures.
  10. regardless of the water level we will be up, ng is not a problem. I was just wondering if there was a site that I could keep an eye on it. In '17 we had one of the best years ever and I can't imagine that this year will be any different.
  11. I'm looking at upgrading my current 12v trolling motor to a 24v. Currently I have two batteries in the back of the boat. One for the trolling motor and one for the starting motor/electronics. I don't really have room for a third in the back so here is my question. How far apart can two batteries be that are wired for 24v? can one be at the back and one in the front? I am willing to give up some of the storage in the front for a second battery but not sure it ill work being approximately 10' apart.
  12. Do you know if there is a online gauge that can be found?
  13. I'm getting very anxious to head north to the great St.Lawerance. I can't seam to find any up to date water level info so I figured I would ask the guys that know best.
  14. I'm assuming that you mean largemouths, if so, we had several of them at 4lbs or a little more. No real big one but decent. I'll be curious to see how the big boys do next week.
