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.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.
