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!!

Now I can't wait for the lakes to freeze over -- Another month at least -- I would guess.

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.

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".

      What are the slop conditions looking like on area lakes?
