Rode the Grizzly down to the Northern Acres access yday ~ 4 & found 3 rigs parked there. They were all roller trailers but 1 looked to be big enough for a 17' Crestliner like ours. The other 2 were for smaller boats.

Stopped at the CR 35 access on the way to get the paper yday & found somebody with a 20.5' Skeeter parked in front of the ramp. We kept on going & checked there again on our way home. No rigs in the lot when we came home. We could get a look at the ramp on our way back home though & it looked like there was still 2-3' of sand at the end of the ramp to us. The dock isn't in over there either.

Got clouds of them gathered around the windows. Watering flowers on the porch brings them out of hiding like the Luftwaffe.

They were terrible until they sprayed on Monday evening.  Now they are almost non-existent.  That spray really works.

So what happened them IB?  Did they have to drain the tanks?  Had he started it?  I got an old Ford diesel just for a knock around truck.  Big 3/4 ton about amid 80's.  Cool as heck driving that diesel.  A week after I got it I was at the local station putting "gas" in it and said a big OOPS vividly.  Had two tanks so one was good fuel. Put diesel in the other one and drove to the local mechanic shop and had them take care of the situation.  :crazy:

They are flat out horrible west of you Glenn! We arrived to see almost 5.5 inches in the gauge and shin high grass. The neighbor came over with his Kubota when I started cutting and we knocked it almost out in a hour, just the lakeside left. He wanted to spray but I was reluctant with the 4 pooches here.

what was he going to spray it with?????

i expect the same scenario when i get to the cabin.  :doah: once i get the lawn cut it'll spray it also but i use a homemade potion that contains water, mint mouthwash and epsom salt........works pretty damn good!!!! down by the fish cleaning house i use the skeeter beater granules. only thing with that stuff....once its wet its worthless!!!! but it works. that skeeter beater works pretty good for flies too!!!!!!!

just a quick report on last weeks fishin adventure. we did pretty good with pike and sunfish. tried a new lake up the road towards Wirt from us. called Whitefish lake.

in my experience its about the same for pike as Sand and little sand...........lots of little ones. great for the picklin jar and smoker!!!!! i'll go back. when i get up there myself i'll be checking it out for other species, as its got a few shallow humps in the lake.........not to mention 50 ft  holes!!!
