Thanks MELONBOB for the map info in WAWA. I am the guy that you gave the info. concerning the lake out near the mine where you pumped the fresh water for the mine from--it was full of pike but smaller ones. We went to another lake a few miles away back towards town and took the quads back in we caught a 40 inch. pike and a number of decent eyes. We pulled the boat in with a quad and had some very good fishing. Are you at Missanabi at this time?
We are planning on going to Horseshoe lake north of Pickle Lake and give that a try have you ever been up in that area.

I've never been up to the Pickle Lake area, but the walleye fishing is supposed to be second to none...
Been pretty busy with work lately, haven't been spending much time on the boards, hopefully things will start picking up soon.
I don't live in Missanabie, I live in Sudbury now, work forced me to move, but I still try to spend all my weekends there in the summer months. We're you the person who was asking around for Melonbob? The family got a kick out of that when we found out. My name is Bob Ruff, and my fiancee is Melissa, thus the Mel n' Bob....(:
If you're in the area again, go to Ernies tavern and ask for me by Bob Ruff, most of the locals will know if I'm in town on a given weekend....

I asked Kenny-Ernies boy- and Earnie and the fella who keeps the campground down at the lake the slim fella from Michigan who spends his summers up there about Melonbob. Not a one of them had a clue about who I was asking about. I know there are more dogs in that town than people and with a name like that I was sure they would know you---THE MYSTERY SOLVED.
thanks for your help in the past.
