    Cabela's reels.....extinct?

    Went into Cabela's for some reloading supplies yesterday. The Cave is closed. Big white tarp over the entrance. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted, but we will not be darkening their door nearly as often now.

    Boat Fire Yesterday??

    I saw that on the news last night. They said everyone swam to shore safely, and that the fire started in the engine. Not much more than that for details, though.

    Cabela's reels.....extinct?

    I sent an email to Cabela's saying I think closing the caves is bad move, if getting visitors into the store is their goal. They responded with a nice note, saying they'd pass my opinion on to their management. It'll probably die there in the round file, but it's worth a shot.

    Cabela's reels.....extinct?

    We found the same thing the other day. Talked to an associate about it, and it looks like they are taking another run at closing the Bargain Cave, at least here in Rogers. He said JM "did not like the Bargain Cave". Seems kind of odd, given he has a big outlet store next to the BP in Springfield. You'd think he'd understand the allure of the treasure hunt to bringing in shoppers. If it closes, it will certainly cut back dramatically on our visits to the store. It's unfortunate that we have the closest Cabela's to Springfield. They are messing with this store a lot to see how stuff flies. There are often BP staff from Springfield in the store, watching the lab rats.

    April 16, Indian Creek

    Thanks. That makes sense, except for that dock laying there with 2 boats in it for that long. No insurance, I'd guess. You'd think the COE would get after them.

    April 16, Indian Creek

    Yep, fishing was pretty good up in there. Thanks for the tips, Jeff. Great to run into you out there. We didn't catch any smallies or whites of any kind. Spots and LM's only. My recently repaired rotator cuff is finally feeling good enough to fish a few hours, so hopefully getting back into a lot more. Does anyone know the story of this flipped over dock in the cove just to the west of the dam? Docks next to it seemed fine. I've never seen anything like this on Beaver before.

    Rain on the way

    Almost all impoundments are at their best fishing early in their lives, before a lot of the newly flooded cover rots away.

    Indian Creek 4/14

    Yeah, it's still muddy here around the PC area.

    It is downright looney out there!

    Thanks for the report, Jeff. I enjoy watching the loons too. They are always on the lakes in Wisc I fish in the summer. But they can get to be pests, too. Had one grab a small bass just after I released it. I knew the loon was close by, so I was careful to let the bass go on the other side of the boat from it. Darn loon swam right under the boat and snagged it. Too big for it to swallow, though. I assume it found a way to eat it.

    PC cove is milkshake brown.

    Going to get muddy?

    Up about 5 feet already, and more heavy rain predicted for today. Looks like it's going to muddy water fishing this spring.

    Going to get muddy?

    Still not a fan of stained/muddy water, but you guys that like it should be happy. Prairie Creek is running pretty brown. The back part of the cove is all stained, and there is a mud streak down the middle at mid-cove. News this morning said another 3" or so before it clears off on Sunday.

    Going to get muddy?

    Thanks for the advice. Mine was only a partial tear, so I'm hoping once I'm released to fish, it won't give me too much of an issue. But I'll sure back it down if gives me much pain.

    Going to get muddy?

    Just watched the weather, and they gave a 7 day rain total prediction of 6-7 inches of rain. I know it's a good thing for the area, but it'll probably muddy up the lake again. I prefer fishing clearer water, so not looking forward to it. Just in time for me to get back to fishing after a 4 month layoff from rotator cuff surgery.
