Well the walleye season is now over.
I had all the houses on fresh spots in what was a fishy area.The fishing was slow.Of course the weather was cold so fishing in the open was not happening. Everyone still had a good time but I sure was dissapointed with the fishing this year.We found some great areas that were very fishy and they would fizzle out in no time. Very frustrating. If I had it my way all the houses would get limits. I guess thats kinda silly but with a lake full of walleyes you would think they would be a little easier to catch. The season started off with no night bite at all which kinda sucks when your renting sleepers but that was out of my controll. The main roads only went out less then 3 miles and at three miles it seemed to be fishless.Once we were able to get out further we found some good fishing but again within a week it fizzeled out.
I would like to thank all the dedicated customers that came again this year. And also a big thank you to my new customers. I hope to see you again next year.
Today will be a sad day as I start the process of pulling the houses off the lake. I truly love being on the lake everyday and the work is very rewarding . Battling mother nature is the hardest part, finding great fishing can be tough, Keeping the equippment going is always a challenge.My helper had to leave mid jan. Which made things even tougher but I some how managed.
Now it willl be a long wait until we get out on the open water,I will be doing a little fishing looking for the elusive upper red lake crappie. We also need to do some work on the cabins .Lots of painting and cleaning as we get ready for the opener.
Again a big thank you to all my fishermen and lets hope the open water season brings with it outstanding fishing
