Sorry to hear, thoughts and prayers to family and friends... and endless supply of Rapalas!
Wanted to let people know Porky (Jordan) former proprietor of Donner's Bay passed away Monday.
Had to call a friend to verify Porky's real first name, the only person who ever called him Jordan was Rozann, his wife, she is about as nice a person as I have ever met.
Had a lot of good laughs with Porky as I'm sure a lot of Lake Link viewers have.
May the big walleyes be slamming the #9 count downs at sunset in the afterlife.

Fished Turtle on Monday. First time in over ten years. Water seemed to be up and was 72° in most places I fished. Tough fishing, had to work to get bit. Best luck came pulling spinners on bouncers in 14'-16' off river channels. Mayflies were fairly heavy in some areas as well.

Well we didn't have a clue what we were doing or where we were going. We searched and searched for weeds and didnt mark any. Are we missing something or do the weeds stick on the bottom here or what? Anyway, that didn't stop us from getting a nice fish fry. Most fish came on what appeared to be hard bottoms 8-13 fow in bays, humps and past islands verticle jigging was best bit slip bobbers produced. We ended up with some nice eyes 13-15" some 10-12" perch and a big 10" bluegill. We are definately coming back to try again and try to find those "weeds" people say are out there.
If you go west and a bit south of Fishermans Landing you will see a fairly long and narrow shaped island, locals call it "Hot Dog" or "Swimmers" island. (Same island has campsite # F-9 and R-17 on it.)
On the north and NW side of this island is a very shallow sandy area that is great for swimming. Water level is very high right now so swimming will not be as good as normal July when water is down a couple feet.
Copy and paste that to Google maps. It's not a beach, it was a knee deep sandy area that we took our 3 year old swimming. Areas like that are all around the islands I suspect. I am not aware of any beachs, but I don't spend a lot of time there.
I'm heading out on the TFF for the first time next week. Planning on launching at Fisherman's landing. I'll be out with the kids... So was wondering if any of the island or shorelines near there are sandy and would be a good place I could take them to swim. Helps keep them out fishing a little longer if add in some non fishing activities to our boat ride.
Jeff, if you'd rather keep your recent frogg toggs purchase for yourself so you can determine it's worth to you, I keep a couple of these frogg toggs ponchos in my boat storage along with my regular rain suit for spares, for folks that may not have rain gear or forgot theirs... cheap and actually, pretty nice.. and like most rain gear, provide some protection against the wind.. and possibly keep you warm
