Night Of The Leaper...

7 posts in this topic

Larry The Satellite Guy (LFC)...able to step off the river bank in a single bound...well maybe two or three bounds ....and still come up with a fish.

Nice Leap Larry! Wish I had the camera rolling!grin.gif

You do any more leaping after I left? I'll be laughing all day at work.

leaping.....and then some.

Too bad you had to leave.

The fish started hitting after 12:00. As it happens so often, we were seriously discussing leaving when Larry's "alarm" starts going off, he runs down.....waits......clicker screaming by this time......waits.........uhhhhh......fish on!

BIG FISH!

The fish darn near didn't give him a choice about leaping when it almost pulled him over. He (carefully) found a way down the bank and we are both pumped cause we know it's a big fish.

Fish turns, goes downstream and all the sudden....poof. I heard every 4 letter word and even the 5 and 6 letter words with "broke off" mixed in somewhere.

Right after that, he tossed out some cutbait while he was rerigging his break off, and that one just about flies out of the rod holder (no clicker). This time he made it safe down to the river, but took another leap while reaching for the fish grin.gif A beauty 13lb channel

And then, he tossed his rerigged pole back out and it went off again, this time everything worked perfect and we landed a nice 18lb flat.

Fun night it sure was cool.gif

oh I totally fogot, we decided to leave again, and Larry said watch, we'll get a bite again, sure enough he did......I let him tell you what he caught grin.gif

I gotta believe he is in a deal of pain this morning though, from that first leap. I still don't know how he managed to keep his rod up, and the fish on, while doing a barrel roll down a 20 ft river bank

Ahhh it wasn't quite 20ft. But it sure was a much bigger step than I was expecting. blush.gif

made for some really good laughs. It would have been one of those perfect camera moments.

AS far as the last one of the night. Dturtle is passing off his title.

Big softshell... Yuck.

I am not sure about any one else, but this year for me has been a blooper year. From countless butt slides down hills in front of friends, to a total all out display of un balancment in front of a crown down on Pool two.

My pride and ego are ranking up their with my hook up ratio.

      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

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps
