WHAT A BLAST

2 posts in this topic

Tuesday morning we got a late start to mille lacs for a day of fishing and of course we brought the camo, waders and guns the perch werent co-operating and just as that little cold front moved in around 1:30 we stared seeing ducks so we stashed the boat in to the weeds and set a few decoys out and the fun began we werent even out of the decoys and two drake mallards came right in and almost dropped on our heads, instead they landed in the weeds about 65 yards up and we pursued them,jumped them and two green heads down.As we standing there we heard a little splash and my buddy said I hope that wasnt my phone and he looked and it wasnt it was his trigger assembly the pin fell out a the trigger assembly was laying on the bottom of the lake about 3 foot water. He found the trigger assembly but not the pin so took a pencil reed and stuck in the hole and bent it over and it worked I thought it wasnt the safest thing to do but he still shot ducks. We sarted back to the decoys when five ringbills buzzed us they came around again and we plucked three out of the sky this all happened before 2:30 then a couple more mallards about a 1/2 hour later. waited for more to come and we saw a lot of birds fly around then about 4:00 we had three buffle heads come in and we got all three. a couple more mallards flew by but just not in range. We ended up with 10 ducks and no perch and one wicked boat ride across the bay 4-5 foot swells but that was worth every drop of water that hit us in the face. can't wait to the catails.

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
