  1. If you click on the letters beneath the pic a video will play. I don't know why it happened like that
  2. Hachimo, Catfish creek is not a campground or RV site. They rent what I said above, Cabins and 60' mobile homes. I've Never seen any wild partyin there in 3 yrs. Everyone seems to be old like me. But if you do know where there is any wild parties let me know! HaHa
  3. Let me start off saying I am from Valley Forge , Pa. I fish from a 1983 16' Sylvan open fishing boat with a 40 HP. tiller. SO I am a little behind the 8 ball and I fish alone.I've been doin this for just 3 yrs. I am still open to helpful hints. This may be a little longwinded, But I hope some my find this useful. I stayed and launched from Catfish Creek camp its halfway between Mexico and the power plant. I trolled between mex. and plant back and forth. Day 1:On lake at 6:30 130 fow riggers at 80 wht/wht meat rig and 100 Green NBK stinger, Dipsey' out 200" (I actually use a 104mm Deeper Diver) with a Green Tuxedo Stinger. about 9:00 I got a nice 20" brn.on it. Thought I had somethin goin, but rod didn't move again for an hour so I put on the dipsey a 8" Lances 2 face and Atomic S500 grn Hammer fly ( 22" leader to rear treble) out 280'( which I got most of my fish on). Lances 2 face UV flasher and Super frog UV seem to be hot. The stores in Pulaski can't keep them and the hammer fly in stock. A lot of guys were really successful with all chrome flashers also. At 10:30 15 lb. king slammed it in 144'.Landed a 15 lb king. It looked like kings were onto F/F's. took spoon off rigger, put on a Burkes Valium w/ stud UV adjusted riggers to 70' and 90'. At noon dipsey took off screamin with drag dipsey tight even, took it from 280 to 380 I pumped in about 30' then it took out to 420' after a great 20 min. fight I landed a 26 lb King nothin else quit at 3:00. So I got my 3 fish and was a great day. Day 2: Seemed like an f/f bite so I rigged everything with F/F s set up riggers 70' and 90' dipsey out 250'. At 7;00 hooked up 90/140 UV/Wht Spindr.. It stayed deep and shook its head for 4 or 5 secs. til it got off. Don't know what that was about. I thought F/F s were lookin good, wrong again! trolling 140-160 (most of the charters were trollin 150'- 200'). Then nothin, so at noon I put out a Grn. Tuxedo UV stinger on dipsey out 250. In 10 min. I had a jack then in another 15 min. I got an 21 lb. King. Now it looked like a spoon bite. Switched to spoons and nothin. Quit at 4, Day 3: Fished from 6- 10 had 1 fish on dipsey 220 out on Lances 2 face. It took off screamin then broke off for some reason the rear treble broke off. I never had that happen on a Atomic tourney rig. and that was it. Lookin forward: I had great success last year end of Aug.100 fow down 70 dipseys out 220, all F/F s Burkes Valium and grn hammer. I went 11 for 15 in 3 days and had a couple doubles. Mostly dipseys. Considerin 100 - 1000 guys go out and only a handful print successful stories, its not always as good as it looks guys. Fish hard and stay hopeful. My successes are small but growin'. I stayed at "Catfish Creek Camp" they have older mobile homes for daily rent ($110) 1- 4 guys. and new cabins price on website. It was wonderfully adequate, full size frig w/ freezer. Best part is their boat launch. You wouldn't know the lake was high. I didn't even get my rear wheels wet launchin. Free dock space and only 200 yds. to main lake. I saw a 30 footer launch there. " Catfishcreek.com " And that's my story, Good Luck out there If you click on the letters beneath the pic a video will play MVI_0093.MOV MVI_0093.MOV
  4. I was up mexico this past week and had a fish on 90 down over 100 and take a f/f and just sat there shaking its head til it shook off. was kinda strange. I am not sure what it was. a charter guy thought it was a laker ????? I also had something beak off or bite off the rear treble on an Atomic tourney rig and that's 50# fluoro
  5. what are fishing for? I was up there for the first time may 15-20 for walleyes it was kinda tough. the most I saw the charters bring in at Hechins was 2. A lot of lakers came in. but I did get one 9 lbs in the Black river area. bomber 24a white / orange back, 20'down over 45'. I am sure its all different now. I am going back this Wed. Lets keep talkin.
  6. Just got back from a walleye trip to Henderson Harbor. When I pulled my boat Sun. the water was starting to go into the parking lot. An official was there and said they are gonna close it. Stoney Creek is still useable and in fairly good shape because the launch is so steep there. It is right up to the mooring cleats another couple inches and it will be in the grass. But as of Sunday you still wouldn't need boots. Sackets Harbor is in the parking lot. You can still launch but I don't know where one would park. Walleye fishnig was slow to non-existant. I got one ten pounder in 3 days. I stayed at Henchen Marina cabins where several charters are based and none of them brought in more than 2 walleyes. Lot of n. pike caught. The lakers seemed to be doing good. I kinda liked Henchen's cabins for $75 they came with protected dock space 50' from the door. Not the Hilton but comfortably adequate. Good Luck out there and bring your boots
