  1. If you have missed a few of my posts this fall, you don't know that both the walleye fishing numbers and the size of the walleyes showing up on both the Saginaw Bay and the river this year have been outrageous. Not since the late 80's have I personally seen such big average size walleyes in a days catch. My fishing board alone has had 4 Bay/River fish near or over 12 pounds posted on it since late November. And many guys are already talking about lots of 8 and 10 pounders being landed at this early date through the (just getting safe) ice on the river. And the real kicker is that you can catch a dozen 5 to 14 inchers first, and then snap a 12 pounder with the Next Bite in the same hole. This huge, healthy spread of sizes, year classes and record breaking numbers bodes very well for the future of not only big fish but also for the eater sizes most prefer. Add to all this the new and unusual tendencies (to us locals anyway) of the walleyes sticking around in the river well into late spring, and no tournament fishing days canceled because of weather and the rivers fishablility, and you have the makings of yet another very competitive (and possible show-down) when the AIM tourney hits town next May.
  2. Ditto. And may 2010 bring us many new faces and some sanity in both houses.
  3. Hell, we can make this easy on the both of us. I'll trade you (bag for bag) any fresh whitefish you have for as many equal bags of walleyes you want.
  4. There is probably one other thing not considered here. And the only one thing at this time that Adam won't be able to relate to quit yet. Age and physical ability. That decreased desire to get out and enjoy some things when it's windy and only 26 degrees outside. Clint Eastwood said it all. A man has to know his Limitations.:rolleyes:
  5. If your having Winter labor pains already, your going to be in major mental anguish in 60 days when I'm still hoping to be ice fishing on Lake Simcoe.
  6. Allow me to be the voice of reason once again. Don't be to quick in blaming Power Loading. Many of these public and marina ramps were built during the "HIGH WATER" days of the 70's and 80's. The old water mark on the Linwood Beach Marinas sea wall is 36 to 40 inches up the wall from the current water line. That's 3 feet less water in the launching area, which would require who knows how many extra feet of new launching ramp cement to back your trailer down on to to float your boat. Thus, the shortened cement buffer zone before the drop off. I know of many ramps that have this same problem and at this economic stage of the game IMV will not be fixed or extended any time soon unless causing some real damage or physical harm.
