Boy was it a walk with all that gear because causey is LOW!!!!!!
Thinking the worst was behind us we launched.....not knowing the hike up was going to be worse with that boat. 1st 2 mins Pavlik hooked into a fish that jumped off the squid and doger and the bank tangler using powerbait nailed a rainbow. Thinking it was a good sign we trolled up Boy Scout arm trying various lures and watched a mini boil of Kokes on the way up the arm. Well we made our way to skull crack when pavlik nailed this fattty rainbow..........
We got all excited and mentioned how this ice season with those rainbows was going to be awesome. Whoops I spoke way to soon. We hit dinkerville and got assaulted by these guys...................
Anyone that knows pavlik can tell you he always has an eye out for lost poles. Sure enough he found me the pole I have always wanted...................the pink princess pole (watch for a tiger muskie being caught on this puppy!)
With all the rock "playgrounds" around though we could not help ourselves and had to poke some fun at LOAH and get them in the report too..................
With that we tried the inlets to only spook fish and realize that the water is so low you cannot get up there very far. So we headed back to where Pavlik nailed the bow and I took a pic of the setting sun.
Sure enough on the same silver/blue kastmaster he got a nice tiger too!
Apparently Pavlik was getting good at losing lures to snags and in his frustration the couger cub could not contain its laughter. Kind of errie to hear that noise....must be close to halloween already (that was when ETDT heard his 1st ever couger cub last year).
We stayed till dark (8pm) and luckily the full moon helped us illuminate the hill we had to climb back out of with the boat and gear.
By 10pm I was home and took a hot shower (last time I go in just a T-shirt and shorts) and contimplated why I didn't get anything. Ah ha! The very loud gas motor might have spooked off the fish before my lure (silver/blue kastmaster) went by. Pavlik put a heavy sinker on all of his lures.
