    How sweet is that? I could live in there - or turn it into one big sewing studio! Bet I'd have a great view!

    Loretta we own our own boat and dock at Whiskey Island just past that light house. It is the best kept secert (well not anymore) we have 10 acres of land, a marina, and a bar all right there. Anyhow here's the pictures now we are all still confused on how in the world I caught this. :shock:

    I had a pin head minnow on my line (which is about 1 inch long) and caught this SMELT :shock: which is about 1/2 inch wide and 4 inches long. Sorry the picture isn't the best but the boat was bouncing around and my smelt well, he didn't get me that WALLEYE. :evil:

    Lake trout, Salmon, Perch, Walleye, Saugeye, Steelhead, Gobi's (ugly invasive fish) but we have never caught a Lake trout or Salmon there aren't many in the lake or if they are we haven't caught them.

    Oh yeah when I was little my dad, Uncle and someof his friends would fish the salmon tournament out of Racine. I love to fish so if you haven't guessed, the sewing is on hold till more than likely Nov. since we're not home but 1 day a week till then. :cry: But love to fish so something has to give but I don't have to clean house :mrgreen:

    Beautiful pictures and well the little smelt was hungry to go for the bait, eh? :lol:

    Oh Bev if you can sit on shore not to bad, just dig some worms. But for us yes very expensive at times when we're walleye or steel head fishing, but this year might be cheap if the water temp stays cool we will only have to go 4 miles out vs. 13 miles out.

    Oh, those were the days!! My family is from Painesville/Fairport, and we had a boat when I was a kid. I remember fishing for perch with treble hooks...and reeling in 3 at a time!!! On tin foil, baloney, minnows, whatever we had for bait!! We would catch enough in the fall to freeze for Friday all through Lent!! Fairport has a beautiful lighthouse at the top of the hill (Lighthouse Hill, the best sledding spot around :D ) It has never been in use that I can remember, but you can tour it and its just cool! I can't wait to retire and go back "home"...only 10 years or so to go :lol: :lol:

    Thanks Renee, for the memories :D
