Big fish

6 posts in this topic

Well has any one een out fishing lately. Ive been doing a little wading and have been gettin some really nice fish. Not a whole lot for numbers but they have been nice. Between yesterday the day before and this morning ive gotten 5 over 17 and the biggest one was 19.25. Then i got another 19 and a 20 about a week and a half ago. I was going to take a picture of the biggest but my moms camera is broken so i got to get a different camera. But any ways they have all be in less than 2 feet of water chasing minnows and crayfish. They have been hitting topwater and soft plastic jerkbaits worked right under the surface. So if the boat dont float get out there and walk. grin.gif

Fished the river today and had a numbers day but nothing big. Biggest was only about 16.5 of two dozen fish. Using mostly tube jigs.

If you can find a place wading is the way to go. Between two of us we caught 20 or so smallies in about 3 hours yesterday, the biggest was about 17, but a lot of fish and a blast had by all.

Wading is all I've ever done in the river but this year my usual stretches have not been producing much. I've made some trips up to Elk River. I'm still shoppin' around.

Theyve just started picking up here below the dam in brainerd now that theyve cut off some of the water flow. Caught a 19.5 and some smaller ones, all on poppers. The best is still to come boys.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
