A huge thank you!!!!

16 posts in this topic

smile.gifJust wanted to say thanks to all who contribute knowledge - not just complaining - to this website. Last friday morning my wife caught and released a 46X26 muskie. Because of the thread regarding water temps, we netted the fish quickly, kept the fish in the water, and took only 1 picture out of the water. The fish was out of the water maybe 10 sec. When the fish was put back into the water it immediately swam away hard. Without reading the earlier post we may have taken more time. THANK YOU! Hopefully a kid or someone's wife can now catch a 47" next year.

Awesome job! Education is a great thing. Too bad more people aren't willing to be educated. Like yourself, I've learned a lot from this website and other sources due to people willing to share their knowledge.

Thanks. She has big time bragging rights - and don't think I don't here about it crazy.gif This is the second year in a row I have been the brides maid. I was with a friend last year and he caught a 46. Good thing the year is not over!!! The hard part of all this is she wants to go fishing with me all the time - sometimes it's nice just to go with the guys. Could be worse.....She could put the kabash on all hunting and fishing.....but that would just lead to divorce!! I must admit that it was probably as fun watching her catch that fish as it would be catching it myself. She was just shaking when she took the photo (she didn't want to hold the fish because she wanted it back in the water ASAP) it was nice to see her get so excited. If I can figure out how, I will post a photo.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Then Crooked lake pier fits the bill they like corn or worms   or what city are you looking around?

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
