Enjoying the Summer - A Few Pics

Recommended Posts

Now that work has slowed down I have had more time to get out and do some fishing. Below are pictures from 3 outings in the last 10 days.

I had the opportunity to get both of my brothers on trout streams on seperate outings, their 1st trout of the year.

What a totally awesome 10 days. Knowing you, the highlight of the entire 10 days is watching your younger bros catch their first trout(s) of the season. That's really neat you had the chance to do that. I'm looking forward to fishing with your bros and family this week.

BTW: Nice flattie! It took me over 20+ hours to get my first one, so that's awesome you got yours in the first night ever chasing them. We'll do it again after the spawn is over.

So you guys did find something!

We were up and down the river and caught 4 flats with the largest at 12lbs. Most of the action was early. Pretty tough night.

I couldn't tell exactly when we went by in the dark but you guys should have moved over closer to shore. Looked like you were aways out in the river. I wasn't kidding when I said to throw your anchor on shore. grin.gif

Hanson, this was the only flattie of the evening, but we must have had about 10 other runs. Big runs too. Drag screaming mothers and we let them run forever but to no avail. The only flattie didn't run at all, rather just slam the rod and sit there.

We looked into throwing the anchor up on shore (where you guys were), but there were 2 trees/branches that would have been right behind our boat and every fish (and cast) we tangled with, would have been taken into these branches and maybe snagged up. We tried to move them, but they were burried good. We opted for a different angle. We still casted shallow several times, but our best action was out from shore in the new current seam produced by the fallen tree.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.
