May Long Weekend

Recommended Posts

Well as planned we headed down to the cottage in Long Point for the weekend. It was the best May 24 weekend weather that I have ever seen even with it raining most of the day Saturday.

 

I went out for a few hours every morning looking for some pike. It was the first time in my life that I was getting mad because there were bass EVERWHERE.

 

Every time I tried a spot I would catch bass after bass, so I would move and try somewhere else and end up catching more bass. I ended up cruising around a lot because of it but that was still fun.

 

At one point I was bringing in a fish, looked into the water and saw a nice pike. I was all excited until I realized that I had another bass on my line, not the pike and saw this thing start attacking my bass at the side of the boat. It was insane :w00t:

 

This is how the bay was every day :good:

This is how I tried to spend the rest of the days

This is the calmest that I have ever seen Erie in my entire life. It was like this all weekend.

The were a TON of dead smelt on the beach this year. It was like this all down the beach (this is the only way fish are ever in my reports :lol: )

Sunday my wife and I managed to head over to Pottahawk for a cruise. Ended up anchoring and jumping in for a swim. It actually wasn't that bad, well after a few minutes it wasn't that bad.

The pergola got done but the only pic I have is when we started it. It turned out pretty good

The last night we decided to have a fire, roast marshmallows and watch the fireworks on the beach. I got the oldest to start digging.

I wish I could have got a pike this weekend but it is what it is. We had a great weekend.

 

Hope everyone had a good one,

Great post. Some R&R in the sun with the family. The pike didn't co-operate but at least the weather did. thanks for sharing.

Wow what a great spot Dan!

 

I'd like to pick your brain a bit about the pergola if I could.

 

Feel free, We only did a basic one but I'll try to help
