4 Pictures from this Week

2 posts in this topic

Our past few trips for channel cats have been frustrating. We caught 3 this evening with a 19”er in addition to the 2 pics below. We tried Gulp, Power Bait, chicken liver, nightcrawlers, and cut redhorse. The Gulp got no attention; the PB had a bite or two. I’m not a believer in that processed stuff quite yet.

Crazyice - 17”

I spent Sunday morning on the Lake fishing with whole kernel sweet corn. It was a slow go with only 3 bites providing 1 fish. This is what a 12lb-5oz carp looks like. 8 minute fight on Medium to Medium Heavy gear.

This is the 2nd time (of 2) I’ve had a slow day carping fishing on Lake Zum. I’m not sure what it is about that lake, but the fish don’t seem to be very attracted to corn. Might have to throw them a curve ball next time.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
