Home water for steel
Permalink  
 


20190404_104023.jpgno love on the carp river today.  Last Sunday it was mostly ice and unfishable.  The steelhead run is still 1-2 weeks out.  Wading is easy but you have to watch out for 1k pound glaciers floating down river.

Never fished with small glaciers floating by. Sound like fun, no, sounds interesting. Good luck when the fish start moving.

Thanks Ed. The last time I fished that section the water was in the trees and I haven't been back since. I fished Caribou lake yesterday in my kayak for another big skunk. I was looking for walleye and pike but am new to this game and guess I have to pay my dues. I should get back to my roots and fish for trout.

The U.P. has a couple of seasons: snow season, tick and blackfly season, mosquito season and finally back to snow season. We are currently on the tick and blackfly season which kinda sucks and why I headed to a lake instead of a creek or river.

I moved here to retire but found I like to buy toys so a part time job was in order. A few more hours than I want really cuts into play time. I'm also doing habitat work on my property most days for the last few months. I've got 238 new trees and shrubs planted and a ton of work still to do. Clearing some food plots, planting clover, brassica, corn, sunflower and austrian winter peas are on the agenda by the middle of July. Six weeks seems like a long time but I'm certain I'll come up short. All I can do is try.

btw, that small chunk of ice on the right probably weighs a few thousand pounds.  You have to dodge them, as pushing them away as they come down is not possible.  I learned that the hard way with a small one.



tight lines.
