UNBELIEVABLE

3 posts in this topic

I was pulling some spinners with my brother(ellas father-see open water forum-needs prayers post)(which ella is still in the hospital)(I digress) at the confluence on the 'sippi side, and there was another boat in the channel SLOWLY cruising by us(thank you) and another fishing boat on the far side of that one going down stream. A group of jacka$$ jetskiers was flying down stream at us, 3 or four found there way around the crowd since they run in so little of water, and one found his way right between me and the boat next to us, WHILE KICKING UP A FOUR FOOT TALL SPRAY OF WATER that came right over my gunnel and soaked me head to toe. Depthfinder soaked, gps soaked, sandwich soaked(which really pissed me off), and an open box of jigs now underwater in their compartments. If I wasnt just trying to have a good time with my brother, who has only left the childrens hospital 3 times in almost a month now, in my new(to me) boat.... man i tell you what... unreal. even the 20 foot bayliner slowed down to idle by us kicking up no wake at all. Im a catfisherman at heart, so I had a 6oz bell sinker, and one 5oz triangle ready for them to come back and do it again. that would be a very large wound to the head. not worth it when he could have just slowed down.

Had to vent, and send out a warning for you fellas that like this spot too, heads up if you see these jerks coming.

Punks! to bad you didn't get a picture and have them arrested of course your camera would have been ruined also.

I hate people like that I know what you mean about the sinkers but you are right not worth it.

Sounds like the Malibu Wakesetter loaded with 9 people pulling a wakeboarder in front of the 35W launch last weekend. Their wake busted some SERIOUS sized floaters loose that floated into a couple boats launching (including us). I just don't get what some people think anymore. Lets just say with the ballast system in these boats coupled with 9 bodies running half on plane, the wake was NOT small in the least.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
