Very Well Done Cardinal - a day to remember for many reasons. 

Pay no mind to the 'fishermen' who troll forum threads and point fingers for jealous reasons. Life is just too short..

Also pay no mind to the fisherman with binoculars watching other fisherman...they're just a little off kilter...

Let me repeat what I have said on this thread on a couple of occasions before.

1. It is difficult to impossible to take pictures in a kayak and I have no interest in spending money to outfit my kayak to make it easier.  Also, I will not risk dropping my cell phone in the lake and I see no need to get myself a waterproof camera.

2. I fish for my own enjoyment and I have nothing to prove to anyone.  This is a thread on which you are supposed to post results and I always do, whether bad, good or, on the rare occasion, great.  I know that I post accurate reports, but any reader can either choose to believe them or not..Every reader is entitled to his or her own opinion.

As always, good luck to everyone.

Cardinal 3 is full of s**t. He can measure 67 fish on a kayak including a 38in pike but can never take a picture. Anyone else have luck today? I've been fishing this lake for 18 years with 2 of my buddies, cardinal3 must be the greatest fisherman of all time. I call bulls**t.

Attempted to fish the northern part of the lake this morning(4:30) from the durham launch but had no luck, the entire channel mouth was blocked to the point where there wasn't even enough room to get my kayak through. Have not used the launch in a couple weeks so I'm not sure how long its been like this.

I had an outrageously good day today.  I caught 59 northern and most were quality fish.  22 were between 26" and 29" and 23 were over 30 inches, with the biggest being 38".  This is my 13th year on the lake and I think in only one prior year did I catch more that twenty three 30" northern for an entire season.  I would probably have caught even more, but I got off the lake at 2:00 pm to beat the storms.

I also got 8 bass.  One nice one at 19" and 7 that were all 12" or 13" (smaller than usual).

Saw a bald eagle again today.  It flew about 50 yards away at about 40 or 50 feet up.  It landed in a tree, which is the first eagle I ever saw perched on this lake. (I always see them flying, never landing.) My brother must have been watching me again today.  Also had a pair of sandhill cranes fly almost directly overhead and the a couple hours later a pair of little green herons flew almost right overhead.

Saw 3 beavers today, including one that surfaced within a paddle length of my kayak. 

All in all a fantastic day.  Too bad they can't always be this great.

As always, good luck to all.

Was out for a rare afternoon - from 2:00 pm to 6:30 pm.  Ended up with 14 pike.  Biggest 6 were 28", 28", 29", 30", 30" and 31".

Good Luck to all.
