My alarm wasn't supposed to go off until 2:45, but one of my cats woke me up at 2:20, and I never got back to sleep, so I just got up and made some coffee. I was meeting my crew at Mazurik's for a 5:30 launch, because they were just staying right down the road at Little Ted's Cottages, and didn't want to go to breakfast.
I was on shore for the last two days, while Momma Nature huffed a little from the ENE, so I was excited to find light SE winds this morning when I opened the front door. I was ready to get back in the boat and back to work.
The walleye fishing continues to be very good. After the winds and rain we had earlier this week, some areas are a little muddier than others, but it's not too bad.
Woke up at 2:30 this morning and looked at the wind forecast on the IWindSurf app. It was showing the winds would be from the NE....and, stronger than I normally like to see. Northeast winds make the biggest waves, with the least amount of wind, of all the wind directions, because it comes all the way down the lake into the Western Basin. It is the culprit that quickly muddies the shoreline, and sometimes floods our downtown streets along the Portage River.
The plan was to meet my crew at Big Bopper's at 4:45, but since I was informed that Big B's opens at 4:30 right now, I decided to head out at 4am, so I could hit Speedway before getting there early.
I left the house at 4am this morning and headed to town to run some errands and pick my crew up at their hotel by 4:30. I showed up a little early, so I took care of some emails and waited for them, but I didn't have to wait long. They were right on time, and we headed to the gas station to gas up.
I wasn't out last weekend, or Monday, but got out Tuesday (6/12), Wednesday (6/13), and today (6/14)...
Brad Cash, his son, Zachory, and his cousin, Jim were camping on Catawba for the weekend, and wanted to learn how to run Off Shore inline planer boards, so they could run them from their boat.
This morning I met my crew at the Walmart here in Port Clinton at 5am, and we drove over to Huron together. We were the first ones to the launch, and were headed out the channel at 5:30.
Yesterday and today I fished with Dennis Pfieffer and Craig Beiber, of PA, and had a great time. Yesterday's winds were out of the NNE, and brought us much needed relief of the hot and humid weather we had been having. The lake was a bit rough in the morning, but we made our way north to the west side of the islands.
I left the house at 4:45 this morning and headed to Rickard's for some ice and some #11 Flicker Minnows, before hitting Speedway for some gas. I know, I know, I have enough cranks, but I only have one box of Flickers, and they had some colors I didn't already have. lol
Been a while since I blogged a report on my website, (Sorry) but I have been putting smaller reports on my Facebook page in lue of here, because this weekend was super busy, and hot hot hot! And, with all I had on my plate, I just didn't have the time.
My crew this morning were some local "boyz" from here in Port Clinton. They fished with me last year, and were supposed to fish earlier this month, but due to bad weather, we rescheduled to today.
When will this weather straighten out? It's mid May, and I still have yet to wear shorts in the boat. My feet are tan, but my legs are still "winter white"....sigh.
Woke up at 2:30am and decided to just get up and start the day. It gave me an extra half hour to give the "Dexter Dog" some hug time, out on the back deck, while I drank my morning coffee.
I left the house at 4:20 and headed to Speedway to gas up the boat and truck, and pick up some ice for the big cooler, before heading to Big Bopper's to meet my crew for breakfast at 5am.
Sorry, I haven't blogged in a while....was super busy! Canceled last Thursday...fished Friday and Saturday with Vito, who is buying my boat in the fall, and had Scotty Bogen and his two dogs staying with me Friday and Saturday also. Scott had brought his Ranger down from Wisconsin to fish, before heading to Cinci to spend Mother's Day with his Mom and Dad. :)
