Guts, or should I say Raindancer??

5 posts in this topic

Guts, did you make it out sunday? I am gonna board dogs this weekend as Mouse is going south. Gooey will be the boss. I fished a different spot sunday afternoon and I am going to try it again. Good place to drop shot. Not too effected by the wind either. I will want some shiners or big fatheads. Do you think Phil will have any or should I stop and pet the deer?

I'm pretty sure all the bait comes from the same place up there.

All bait on Kabetogama and Namakan come from Cold Springs, so either way you'll be getting bait from the place that has the deer.

Overdalimit, sorry I did't respond in a timely manner, I've been very busy. Of course the corner store has bait, even shiners as you now know. Good to see you by the way, I went out Sunday evening over by GP I had a follow boat, caught several green carp and 3 keeper eyes between us all.

The bite lately was real light, lost a few.

Good to hear! I cleaned three myself Sunday before heading home. Sure was a hot ride. Sounds like a windy week ahead. Heading to Hinkley Tuesday to pick up a horse trailer for Mouse. (she sold the big one and is down sizing) I enjoyed the company, very nice people. I took some of your advice and I agree there is no need to travel long distances to catch fish.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
