5 day's at FG
just got back from a good 5 day stay at FG with coldfooter (Don)
first day we hooked up with fishley,his boy braden,his dad jon and jeff, to go out and do some pup and burbot fishing.. Ash took us to a good spot to set up and we punched a bunch of holes all over the rocky point.. we started out catching pup mac's. up to 23 or 24 inchs.. very fun on light line. then as it got later the burbot started comeing in.. not sure of the numbers but i think everyone cought at lest 5 or 6 bot's in the 3 or so hours we were out there..
packed up that night and headed to the mac area we wanted to fish for the next 2 day's..

next day we got out to the area we wanted to fish got set up in a good area and stared fishing.. fishley and jeff were allready out there.. we seen lot's of fish in the area but they were being a little lock jaw for us.. i finley stuck a 33& 1/2 inch about 15 lbs mac.. missed 2 more good hitt's.. i think fishley and jeff ended the day with 10 to 12 fish most over 20 lbs.. them boy's know how to stick a hook in them out there... Sly.. well Don and i decided to do some bot fishing that night.. so we set up on what looked like a good rocky point.. we were right the bot's were thick in there and we had them all over us for the 2 hours we fished for them.. Don cought a lot more then i did but he was in 12 feet of water and i was in 60 feet.. but i caught a bunch too.

next day we whent back out to the Mac area.. again seen lot's of fish but we could not get then to hit. and when we did get then to hit we could not get a good hook in them.. well all but jeff i think he stuck 5 or 6 fish out there that day as well. packed up that afternoon and moved to a diffrent area to get awayform the weekend grop's that would be comeing in.. got there about 4:30 and decided to just stay at camp that night. the wind was up makeing not all that fun to be out on the ice let alone at night..

next day. we got out to the area we wanted to fish. got set up on some good spots.. again we seen lot's of fish in the area but could not get them to hit. jeff came out and got set up and started showing us up again.. me and Don got the big skunk and jeff got 5 Mac's. Don did hook up 3 times but again could not get a good hook in them.. i got 1 hit all day and missed it badley... by mid-day the wind was getting bad reay bad.. we were going to head over to the burbot bash but with the wind and fact that we were camped way out in nowhere land we did not want to brake camp so we stayed in the camper that night.. the wind was bad all night gusts up 25 to 30 mph..

next day the wind was not any better and we got a late start geting out on the ice.. was the last day to try and stick a big one.. but it was not too be.. we seen lot's fish again but getting them to hit was not so easy.. i missed 2 hitt's i think don missed 3 or 4 hitt's and of corse jeff stuck 2 nice mac's.. about 12:30 we had had it with the wind cold and the fish had moved out so time to pack it up and head home...

i got to thank Ash, Jeff, Jon. for letting us into there homes and fishing holes.. i got to say they are a great bunch of guy's..
and a big thanks to Don for comeing along with me and putting up with me for 5 day's Sly.. lets do it again soon my friend!

Beautiful fish but you deserve it after putting in 5 days. Nice to see the long trip was worth it.

Sounds like a great trip. It would be nice to have that much time to try to catch a big one, rather than the rushed trips that I always seem to make (except for the sturgeon).

Hey fuzzy!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like you guys all had a good time
even if you didn't stick the 30lb.er through the ice
just being there and trying it what it is all about
and that is still a nice Mac. through the ice anyway
so good job next time you will get a bigger one hahahah
Great report.

yeah you got it it's all about getting out and trying to put a hook in them bad boy's.. even tho me and Don did not stick a big one we put some time in trying.. we could have hit the pup's all day.. there was 3 to 5 lbs pup all over out there.. sticking to the gun's was the plan all along. and the loco guy's have it down a lot better then then we did. but i picked up some new tricks i want to give a try at fish lake this weekend maybe it might work as good there as it did at FG..

well i dont get to go to FG too often so when i do get up there i try and make the most of it.. it's not worth it for me to make a short trip of it.. so if i'm going it's going to be 3 to 5 day's or more..

Sleeping on the ice is great fun we did it for the bash. I need to figure out some of the tricks the locals use to get the big ones through the ice. We caught a bunch of pups up to 24 inches Saturday morning but only hooked into one big one that my son lost halfway up. I have landed big ones in the summer up there and through the ice at Bear lake but not the Gorge when iced up. I quess I just need to spend more time up there.

You can say that again.
A few years ago 3M's and I built a portable shanty for just that purpose at FG. Its some what patterned after a Quick flip 3 but bigger and has a full size bed and portable folding wooded floor that can be very quickly installed if needed, and fished through. Also a port-a-potty for me honey.
While it has been howling and -30 below outside at night many times,, its a tossy 75 degrees inside the shanty.. Whats more, its tends to be heavy when loaded for a weekend of week on the ice,, it take a machine to pull it so once its set up as "base camp",, it stay put no matter how bad the "W" in howling..
