Something Was Hungry!

5 posts in this topic

I was fishing at the Maple River Dam where it flows into the Sheyenne River and had a pretty good morning of fishing, managed to bring home a couple eaters under 4 lbs. With two crawlers left I hooked a bullhead cut him in half and used the tail end and reeled in this fella. Not sure what the heck took the chunk out of him but here is proof that those kitties are some tough critters. That is a one liter pop bottle next to him. He weighed in at just under 6 lbs. Still had the chunk of bullhead left and managed to catch one more that weighed in at 10 lbs.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
