  1. Got to the lake at dawn, looking for top water striper action.  Long story short, never really found any.  Covered quite a bit of lake looking for them, saw a few coming up by Clifty, stopped and fished there a while, caught one 18" striper and had one that was the size I was looking for, take a whack at my top water when it was about 20 feet away from the boat - I felt him grab the bait and reacted a little too quickly and I think I probably pulled it away from him.  That was about it for striper action.

    Spent a couple of hours fishing around docks for bass with a 3.3 Keitech, caught 5 bass, 2 of them were keeper sized smallmouth.  Also caught 4 short walleye, they were all 16-17" fish.  

    Pulled the boat out at 10 AM before the weekend rush got going.

    The main deciding factor was cell phone reception. They researched Bull Shoals and determined there was not good enough reception. The looked into LOZ and determined it’s too busy.  They are doing a different format as well. The periods will start at noon. They will finish at 8pm. I think this will be huge. There will be a lot more people watching the last few hours after work. 

    Makes sense I guess.  Yeah too bad they could not do Bull or LOZ, but I like the idea of changing the hours around.

  3. I remember when there was a time that guides would run their boats in circles on a 'hole' where the browns were and they'd also throw rocks into the water.  Theory was that it got them to move and if they get moved they are more likely to bite.  They'd stir up that hole then fish live sculpins.  That practice has been made illegal, the stirring thing, not the sculpins.

    Nothing on the web page yet. Thought I was the only BTL fan on here.

    Looks like there are 2 of you.  😃

    I can understand not fishing Grand, and I was expecting them to cancel it with all the water they are getting.  Don't want to see a TR redo, I'd be happy to see them fish Beaver, I know Beaver is tougher, but I'd like to see one where they have to work for their fish.  

  5. This is the first year in a long time where followed hockey to some degree.  Maybe saw 10 regular season Bruins games, and have watched all the Bruins playoff games.  

    When we lived in Boston, way back a long time ago, the Bruins had the Bobby Orr and Phil Esposito team that won a Stanley Cup, and that's the last time I watched a lot of hockey.  Bruins were on channel 38, one of those UHF channels that we didn't get the greatest of reception as we had an antenna in those days.  Could hardly see the puck.  Only good thing about those days was it was the start of the helmet era, but they phased the wearing of helmets in, the guys that were in the league at the time the rule was passed didn't have to wear a helmet, and they didn't.  It was good for the fans because it was easy to recognize players, nowadays you've got to know the players numbers.  

    But the game is so much more watchable with HD and a big screen LCD then it was back then.
