With just 8 more days until I pack up with the old man and head up North I am more antsy than a 10 year old on the 3rd of July. I've waxed up the boat and swapped out all of my old line for new. Binge shopped at Cabela's twice just to ensure I have all the needed equipment for success. I still need to pick up one more Marine battery to get the trolling motor all ready.
This year my Dad wants to catch more Walleye, and I want some Small Mouth Bass. Muskie and Pike are simply a bonus this year. We have arranged for Gord to be our guide for day and we look forward to getting a better idea of where to fish for particular species of fish and the techniques required.
Fishing here in Kansas has sucked the last two years as everyone is keeping small fish and depleting the stocks of the public waterways. I often wish the Fish and Game officers would more strictly enforce the creel limits and have a presence on the boat docks for inspections of fish. I commend the DNR in Canada for a job well done, and it shows in the numbers of fish caught by all.
The fishing must be good at VBL this year because Gord is not posting any updates due to spending all his time in the fillet room.
If you are going to be up at the lodge between July 16th and July 24th drop a line here and we look forward to meeting you.
