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!

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
