hey Dad ,wanna go fishin?

2 posts in this topic

I got off of work at stopped by Rick's. Noone was home so I came home

to what I thought would be a night off.

My back is killing me from being in boats for too many days to count.

All of a sudden this thought comes to me...call Dad.

Jimminy christmas he says ..I was just sitting down to eat ,but I'll be right out after.

So we hit the lake at about 6.

He drills this nice eye to start thing off and wouldn't you know it ,it was a money fish.Dang! The pressure was on.

The wind was really hauling and our trolling was a chore.

I watched my GPS and we were screaming at over 2.3MPH so I tied some rope to a 5 gallon bucket and made a primitive drift sock.Bingo ,right down to 1.4,then the speed was right on the money and we started to haul in walleyes.

I went to the west side of the lake to get out of the wind for awhile and we smacked a fist full of bass.

10 I think in like 15 minutes with a few more eyes mixed in.

The sun dropped and the wind slowed.We moved back out to the flat in the middle of the lake.I was hugging the west break and pip.I feel this light tap.I dropped my U.L. rod back for a second and reared.

Half expecting the same ole small variety eater I come forward with my rod and holy smokes I got bottom.

Well not really but that rod bent in half & I immeadiatly killed the motor.

I told Dad I got a big one.

I worked that fish to the boat hoping it was an eye.

It ran 3 times on me back to the bottom.

Finnaly I saw his eyes glowing ,the tell tale sign of an eye in the dark running a headlamp.

OOOOOOOO weeeeee,I exclaimed.Grabbing the net I 1 timed it right into the boat.

Never did weigh or measure it ,but it took the all mighty dollar for the night.

Where in the heck was Rick or Mallard.

Here's my Dad with a tomato blood core ring-n grub doing some business.

As we left I told him I almost did not call him as I thought it was too late to make plans.

He says ,it's never too late!

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
