Anyone still fishing?

7 posts in this topic

A friend and I got out last night after the storm blew through to troll cranks for a eyes on one of the local lakes. Ended up catching a few nice eyes between 17.5"-27". Most were in the low twenty inch range. Here's me with the big eye of the night caught on our last pass before heading in to get a little sleep before work.

A few boats out there but pretty light pressure. The panfish bite is going strong as well.

Nice fish Borch, thanks for sharing.

I think I'll take the boat out one last time to run the stabil through the lines, motor so I can put it in storage.

I just got the snowblower from my father in law, so you know what is around the corner wink.gif

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
