Blown off the lake

16 posts in this topic

We skipped the horror of the Vikings game and decided to hit Pelican (HIGH south wind) on Sunday.

I don't know what would have been worse - watching the Vikes or not getting one single bite all afternoon.

Three guys using different stufff all day covering 6-8 spots and nothing was going.-

Maybe I should have watched the Vikes. confused.gif

It was kind of like watching the Rebel - Nugget Game Saturday night. Except I couldn't see much of that game because there was this guy with a blaze orange cap on backwards taking pictures on the sidelines and I couldn't see around him grin.gif

Say what you want to, but Pelican sucks during the day. I don't even consider dropping a line in that lake during the day any more. It's too clear. The question is, did you stay for the night time fishing? Every time I have been there during the day, it's always the same - no bites until the sun goes down and then it's pretty good.

Also, forget about the Vikes. The Pack is goin to the Super Bowl ( shocked.gif)! Well, we'll see about that anyways smile.gif. But seriously, when are the Vikings going to start giving AP the ball? 20 touches only again yesterday?!? No wonder I'm a Packers fan...! How about this trade though - Favre for AP. We'll just start Aaron Rogers - we really would go to the Super Bowl then!!

Oh well, go Pack! They are keeping me off Pelican tonight with the Monday night game and all. So, I plan on hitting Pelican tomorrow night, but wouldn't you know - showers and wind for tomorrow night, beautifull and no wind tonight... Figures! crazy.gif

Yeah, I actually saw you running on the sideline. Bet that took a lot out of you. Who says newspaper guys don't have to work hard.

You're right, they didn't put up much of a fight. Kind of beat themselves if you ask me, but we had to go and watch our nephew play what turned out to be his last game. Fun to watch prep football though.

Yeah, I have not run that much in years -- trying to get in shape for the big deer hunting weekend. It takes a lot out of a guy to walk to the deer stand, ya know.

Yeah -- I am getting close to that 4-0 deal as well. Don't like thinking about that.

I keep thinking about getting in shape -- then I have a bag of chips and watch TV. blush.gif

      The statistics from my journal for the 2016/2017 spearing season have been compiled. I had 21 sits, on 7 different bodies of water across 3 MN counties (Cook, Washington and Hennepin). Average sit was 4.4 hours. Number of pike seen averaged 1.08 per hour. Along with some old favorites, I added some new spots and 3 new lakes to the repertoire and they ended up being new favorites.    I saw, and passed on many pike over 30 inches. I was fortunate enough to have great views of 4 muskies, and more than a few big bass. Interestingly I only saw one walleye, one bowfin and one carp. Those numbers are down.     Here are a few of my pictures from the past season. Not the best quality, but they are from an old LG slider phone.    A trio for the pan and  the days swim team (Johnson red/white and sunfish; Dennis Bertram shiner). Dave Pawlak spear. Larger pike had been attacked by a bigger fish…she was cut up and scaled ahead of the dorsal fin.      Pike, some panfish and a Kraemer 9 tine spear.      I have a few more pictures of some fish n the hole and will try to add them later when I have time.
