Hail the 10 incher ! (Hitman, you'll like :) )

7 posts in this topic

Hey all, I went to Pelican last night and the fish were really biting! Problem is, they were all shorts (like in the picture below). I got about 5 of these guys to the boat and literally missed 10 others due to short hits. The minnow tail would be all mangled on the short hits... 19 ft. of water on the edges with a green and chartreuse jig and a fairly small fathead. All hail the ten incher (as you can see in my new avatar, my specialty is the tiny fish nowadays!!)!!

Oh yeah, forgot to mention - it was a beautiful night all while I was fishing from about 6PM to 9:30PM. Then at about 9:30 that stiff Northwesterly picked up and it was Big Bad Pelican again! My old friend! It was so wavy at the boat launch, I barely was able to load er up and high tail it back to Fargo! Oh well, fun times... crazy.gifconfused.gifgrin.gif

Hey, 10 inchers, or ten pounds, you can't beat catchin walleyes in the Fall! That's what Fall is about: eatin candy, playing/watching a little football and catchin eyes!!

My wife does that to me all of the time. She actually puts things "away" and does not tell me where she put them. Now don't get me wrong I like the help and she is a sweetie -- but tell me where you put my dog collar zapper so I can go pheasant hunting!

lol.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
