Big Jet

4 posts in this topic

Anybody fishing west of Garden on Friday when the big military jet circled? I was over towards Knight but that thing was huge, slow and low! When it circled, I thought it might be going in for a crash landing. Finally headed off to the south or southwest. Weird.

The fishing was not good on the rocks around Knight but pretty good for the dirty water on the rocks to the west. Most of the charters were fishing Little Traverse looking for a little cleaner water.

Yeah, he made a couple circles over Springsteel as well... Must have been doing some training from the base over in Grand Forks or something... and yes, it was big!

I was off of Knight Island that day and up by Garden later in the afternoon. What time did you see the jet. We missed it, but we're probably distracted by all the flies that we're in the boat that day.

The fishing wasn't great. Everybody was milling about from place to place on Saturday. I tried multiple reefs, and even went up into Canada to fish some of the reefs later in the day on Saturday and it was just slow everywhere.

Hines R, it was somewhere around 1:00. There was a good bit of radio chatter about the plane. Going as slow and flying as low as it was, when it circled I really thought it was in trouble. Seeings it didn't, the whole thing was pretty cool.

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
