ML Fall 07 Skunk

Well I finally got the boat hooked up and headed to Mille Lacs. I arrived at the access around 5:30PM and barely had enough daylight to accomplish my mission. My mission was to head out to Indian Point and log the same waypoints in the new GPS that were in the old GPS. Normally you would not have to go on the lake to do this, but my old GPS has lines in the Liquid Crystal Display missing and so you can't see what the coordinates of a given way point are; So for me to have the same waypoints I would have to physically run over the same spots and mark them in the new GPS. There was no wind and so it was easy to just use the electric trolling motor. There were 8-10 bobber fisherman on Indian Point but they were all far enough to the south that I was able to log in all my points. By the time I was done it was dark. Since there was no wind and still quite a few of the bobber brigade around I decided not to fish Indian Point.

I headed into Casino Bay (Sha bosh Kung) and made a full pass out to Sherman's point and back. I didn't even have a strike. Finding my way back in to the access was a little hairy, but I got it done without to much trouble. I got in around 9PM.

I talked to two boats at the access. One had gotten a couple and the other was skunked.

So that's it for my first Fall 07 walleye trip, Skunked.

BP vs Duffman Week 21

I didn't get out and would be surprized if Duffman did, because it rained all week.

To be honest, I don't know if I will do any more bass fishing this open water season. It is the time of year I'd rather be fishing salmon in Sconi or Pig walters on Mille Lacs. I won't be fishing salmon again this year, but should be hitting the water hard this week for walleye. I bought a new GPS and will want to start getting my money's worth out of it. Hopefully this Magellan will hold up unlike the last two I had. It is a big ? as to whether or not the the Magellan Sportrack will allow me to mark the exact same waypoints on Indian Point. Unfortunatly the coordinates are unreadable on Sportrack and so the only way to reproduce the same spots will be to do it on the lake. Who knows if the Sportrack will work or not for me to do that.

Skoal Vikings!!!

Had to do a like Vikes blogging after the big Chicago Win. It looks like us Vikes fans are gonna have something to watch in this Peterson kid. Wow!

Still I am not very optomistic about the team this season. Sure they could easily be 3-2 at this point, but Tavaris has a long way to go and Peterson isn't going to be scoring 3 TD's a week.

I am up in the air about Coach Chilly tending to be more negative than positive. That was quite a collapse against the Bears inspite of the win. If we beat Dallas I would be quite shocked.

BP vs Duffman Week 20

I didn't get out, to bad today would have been a good day to fish. Overcast and calm. How about you Duffman?

It's possible that the Duffman has left the building because I know from fishing MN he was out fishing sometime in the past couple of weeks. However no report, no score!

Well Duffman has reported in and caught a fish for week 20, it's all tied up again. I don't know that I will fish for bass any more this season. The contest does run until the end of November 2.

I got out and fished the 28th (Week 18) and 29th (Week 19) catching a 15.5" and 14" Largemouth's. So unless Duffman can top that, I've retaken the lead.
