The Computer Screen Is Rocking!

5 posts in this topic

I'm fresh back from a full 12 hour day of sturgeon fishing on the St Croix River. All day long, the boat was rocking and rolling left & right, left & right, from the big wakes the cruisers and power boats make. I just sat down at the computer and realized that I STILL AM rocking left & right, left & right. Wow! Is my equilibrium a little off right now. grin.gif

I had the same feeling after 12 hours on the Red in Lockport. It'll mess you up.

Back in college, I was on a three day tuna trip out of Point Judith, RI. I have never been sick on any of the many trips I have taken into the ocean. When we got back to shore, I loaded up the giant cooler of tuna that was going to feed me for the next few months at college then went to McDonalds. While I was standing in line, I turned green and had to run to the restroom to get sick. I made it to the sink and made a real mess. My equilibrium was off for a couple or three days if I was sitting still.

      Tom and I had a decent bite Monday but it's been tough 2 of my last 3 outings. Bored a bunch of holes and hopped.  Got ours on mostly plastics of every configuration.  Had to keep moving to stay on more aggressive schools of fish.  This meant we continually left fish to find cooperative fish.  When the bite got really tough wacky rigging a micro noodle was the only ay to get them to go.  Had several between 9 and 9 1/2 inches.  These were all deep flat fish near a deeper hole.  Midday was best for us.  Slow in the morning and again later in the afternoon.

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!
