Took my good friend Scott from work out yesterday to chase some walters ,fished a few creeks and such and finally found some clear water, but not a single one to be found except this:

Scott37lbs.jpg

37 pounds of "anything that comes near me is supper"

Took Scott a good 15 minutes to land this piggy.I even got a little nervous when I missed with the net, twice tongue.gif

Even LFC can net better than me today was one thought grin.gif

This was Scott's personel best and he was all giddy and wound up for the rest of the day. A few high fives and a couple of bumps later we headed for home to this nice sunset and a few more beers. sunset.jpg

Wow, nice job Brian. I bet that was fun!

I am amazed when I drive over the river in Chaska as to how high the water is!

Fireball jig and minnow on 15 pound spiderwire made for an interesting fight. Scott did a great job of keeping the fish out of the main channel. He asked me what would we do if it would have got out into the channel and my reply was, we got 40 miles of river and a good trolling moter to fight this thing.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
