Burntside 7/30

4 posts in this topic

Didn't even plan on fishing and had some friends coming out for a ride on the end of a HOT day. Wind has been mainly from the West so before people showed up at the landing I buzzed down to the East end. 2 for 2 in 45 minutes. Nothing big and in the classic 50 foot hole surrounded by 30 FOW. Fish in a bowl. Both came on a smaller ghost minnow led by a white 00 dodger. Both fish hit when balls were dragging the sand. Kind of weird since I never see fish on that end of the lake but I took a gamble. Both C&R, Both in 4-5 lbs slot. Kind of nice considering Sundays report.

Sigh? Sigh!! Oh, I think I hear the WAMBULENCE! I'll have you know I earned those two stockers. How much tackle have I thown to the gods this year? 20-30-50$? Don't worry kiddo. There's a seat with your name on it. If you weren't so busy being "professional photo dude" maybe you'd have time to sit down with old Chunky and burn a bunch of fuel chasing a bunch of lakers who really have hit the Jenny Craig diet as of late. Either that or they're watching American Idol re-runs like the rest of the planet. Let's let it cool down a bit and we'll get our old stride back. Or whatta ya doin now cool.gif ? Call me man. You in town this weekend?

At the moment I'm on deadline finishing a chapter in the upcoming fishing book (more on that later, sports fans). Playing professional photo dude had me very busy in May and June. As I recall, YOUR BAND was partly responsible for that, sir! But I've not been busy photographically in July.

And I am in town this weekend. I think Mrs. Catfish has plans for me (we're 2/3 of the way through putting siding on the addition), but I reckon I could sneak away for a day.

That is, if you're finished being Mr. Family Host Dude. Uh, what day? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      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.
