Just A Quick Trip To The Lake

Just to get out of the house,  I took a drive out to North Shore to see how the rain affected the lake. At check-in the young man said the lake was at 77% keeping enough space "just in case".

I drove out to the Day Use Area and parked a little further out the rapidly shrinking peninsula. Trust me it was a short drive. The water was not muddy, but cloudy is the best I can describe it. I think that is a lot of the problem we've been having (not catching) since all the rain. Fish can't see the bait or the lures.While the rainbow Power Bait and orange Power Eggs were soaking, I took a few shots around the lake
I usually fish over there.
Here is today's spot.
That's about all there is left of the peninsula

And for your viewing pleasure, floating toilets.

OK, fishing. Got one big hit on the Power Bait, but it was a hit and gone. Big enough that it almost bounced the rod off the tackle box it was resting on.

The only other hit of the day was on my little Okuma with a pink Kastmaster. Had it on for a few seconds and then it was gone. By the way, while I think about it, I still haven't caught anything on the little Okuma since I got it last year. Maybe next time. Only stayed a couple hours.

Yuki and I are heading back out there Thursday (the weather guessers have backed off on rain for that day) or Friday.

Stay tuned. 


  1. I wish I had an option but the weather isn't cooperating here.

  2. Good to hear you have enough water for awhile. Keep us updated on your trip out this week. Happy hook ups!!
