  1. Well, what a tough day! Griz and I headed up ahead of the ladies. Launched @ 0830 and headed into the SLOPPY / ROUGH seas to 65 fow. Deployed 6 lines. We fished for about 15-20 minutes and the little guy just couldn't take it. He was on the verge of being sick. I couldn't get the lines in fast enough. I learned a SE wind is not good for waves in Tawas! We salvaged the day though. The ladies met us shortly before 11 am at the boat launch. Stopped by Tony's Tacos for lunch, then off to the Tawas State Park to play in the surf at the beach. It was an absolutely great day!
  2. Nice job P1! Griz and I will be fishing deep water tomorrow morning. Then we are going to pick up the ladies at the dock and to play in the water. I'll post good, bad or indifferent. I figure we have about 3 hours to fish., better then nothing. Are you suggesting you waved the net and others swarmed you?
  3. Nice job P1! I had a productive day at the office. Rather have been out on the water!
  4. Nice job as always P1! Hopefully in 20 years I can afford the time to be on the water as much as you are! You're driving a gravy train with biscuit wheels! Keep on em!
  5. Thanks Frank! It was a hoot. Putting together day trips as needed to get my fishing fix. Looking for good weather to take the kids back up for some fishing, then anchoring and playing in the water. The average size of the fish there are just NICE. Minnows and mayflies in the cooler......they're eating healthy.
  6. Fished with a good buddy of mine on Saturday. Launched about about 0800 and wrapped up the day about 1730 with 9 keeper walleye, and only 2 pull backs with nobody home. Biggest fish was just shy of 27". 3 color custom reel naughty (warrior) DDHJ on a 3 color took fish 2 color rattlin rogue candy apple took the most fish. deep little rippers 65 back took a few too. We were rained on 2 x, and after the first round of rain the bite died and we worked our tails off for 7,8, and #9. Fun fishing a new to me area with slight to no pressure. Closest boat was maybe 4 miles away.
  7. We thought we saw you off to the west of us. The pics are priceless. I refer to it, as the days I will never get back! And I'm sure going to try and involve the kids in the things I love to do, in hopes that they will enjoy the time with me. In this instance, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
  8. Night and day difference from those inner bay eyes. Much healthier, much plumper, and a lot more meat off those fish. Seemed like the fish were 3.5# up to 6#s. I can't wait to get back up there this weekend. My dad is going to get out with me Saturday.
  9. Had the pleasure of spending the week just north of Alabaster stone docks on Lake Huron. Blasted out of town with my middle child, Amber, on Friday. We fished Saturday and caught 3 walleye, she did all the reeling! Fun time with her!!!! https://video-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hvideo-xfp1/v/t42.1790-2/11721224_10205990001325727_1306727528_n.mp4?efg=eyJybHIiOjc0MSwicmxhIjo1MTJ9&rl=741&vabr=412&oh=b3e1501e674311e72fd8c10d5ccd10c2&oe=55A416BA Fished Monday with Adam, AKA Griz! We hit some deeper water. He brought in 4 walleye that made the net, we lost well over our limit! He was all smiles! https://video-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hvideo-xpa1/v/t42.1790-2/11666729_10206003789030411_1476248915_n.mp4?efg=eyJybHIiOjU0NywicmxhIjo1MTJ9&rl=547&vabr=304&oh=c629b848fc9a04f8f446b6c84b21f08e&oe=55A41595 Fished one day solo and caught 2 right out in front of the cabin, losing another 4. Fished Thursday with my eldest, Ashely. We started out front, with no action. Moved to some deeper water where she went 6 for 12. https://video-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hvideo-xta1/v/t42.1790-2/11712967_10206037170584929_1825343636_n.mp4?efg=eyJybHIiOjc0MSwicmxhIjo1MTJ9&rl=741&vabr=412&oh=79645f147c7c7fbe296e091b68a27814&oe=55A4097C Nephews from Phoenix went out for an afternoon cruise, and a quick fish. We picked up 3 more walleye in about an hour north of Tawas. Total for Thursday was nine nice fish. Fished Friday with Griz and "Uncle Scotty" on his boat for a morning trip. Griz got 6 to the boat, Scott and I got 2 others while Griz was taking a siesta on the boat. I only used worms Saturday with Amber, and then switched up to Husky Jerks and Reefrunners the rest of the week. Fun trips, I won't soon forget.
  10. I'll sure try! Given the time available to fish, I really should enjoy it! Made it back out on the 13th & 14th. Launched Saturday about noon, and WORKED for our 2 man limit of cookie cutter eater eyes until 5PM. Saturday got out ahead of the tourney in the pea soup fog. Went to the same spot. Had a new guy, never fished before on board. What seemed like work for our 15 fish. Done by 11am. I let the greenhorn reel in all 15, the other guy from Saturday was napping all morning. Nothing special, just cookie cutter eaters. Should be back out there again this weekend. And Frank, we'll be in the same place you visited with us last year. Hoping to put Griz and his sisters on some good action during our family vacation.
  11. Finally some time afforded me the opportunity to fish the bay again. Had an old friend from HighSchool and his son join me for the day. We delayed our launch about an hour Sunday morning, due to high winds out of the south. Headed out into 30-35FOW and put out BB and crawler harnesses. Took right around 2 hours to box out our 3 man ticket. JR Tackle's Grindstone Shrimp was HOT HOT HOT! Put it out into the spread, and bring it right back in with a fish on. Made 3 passes to get em.
  12. Read the same thing. Several different ideas of how the DNA got into the river. I suggest they shock the river and find one of these carp, then, we would have PROOF that they are actually, physically here.
