Our family use to fish Little Bowstring
 I'd like to go back there someday.
it's one of the lakes I've never been on but want to try. Hear tell there are nice fish in it but can be a struggle to find them
I managed to catch fish so I shudder to think how many you'd catch!  :sleazy:
I stop at my limit!! :mooning: :rotflmao:

I
But, with lake names like Little Dick, Big Dick and Jack the horse.  You kind of wonder what the heck the folks were up to when they came up with those names?   :scratch: :scratch:   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:
I like to think that one of those lakes was in honor of me..   butó
Jack the Horse was supposedly in honor of a lumberjack,  named Jack, who pulled a sled loaded with saw logs to camp by himself after the horse pulling the load died on the way in.
That accounts  for two names. Donít know who little Dick was named after. We also have Big Johnson and Little Johnson in the neighborhood.

There were 3 or 4  portables off to northwest at the Narrows late yday afternoon again. One wheelhouse just came in over at Geiger's & the rest that were there all week are still out. Looks like quite a few probably over by the other access(35) & some to the south of the nw access now too.

 :scratch: Pretty sure there isn't any plowed roads over our way, might even have trouble gettin in to the PA unless you have a sled. Even then, not much for a place to unload a trailer either. :happy1: :cool: Seems like most of those who just visit once in a while are slobs anyway. :sad:

There looked to be quite bit pf activity out on Bowstring last weekend though. Early Saturday until ~ mid afternoon Sunday the units out front of Geiger's were MIA. Could see 6-8, maybe 10, groups in the usual spots off in the distance Saturday afternoon.

Just watched 2 sleds go out & they stayed to the right with no issues what so ever. I can't see any trouble spots either unless that's 1 at the start of the road on the left. Only time it's ever came up dark for me is when I just tried to post the link. I have no arrow as it's always live as there's a something hangin on the right side of the 1 dock that's usually movin.  I go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBqT5y9dRb8        Click on the link & that's what I always get right out of my favorites.
