Happy Holidays!

5 posts in this topic

Happy Holidays to all of you with best wishes for a healthy, happy, prosperous and fishing-filled New Year.

Does anyone have an interesting Christmas wish list? I don't know if this qualifies as interesting, but I am counting on getting a DVD of "The Trout Bum Diaries: Volume 1, Argentina." I'm figuring on it being great escapist fare when the winter gets really long. Of course that's not nearly as good an escape as heading off to the Bahamas, but I'll take what I can get.

Wish: Mustad R90, 4x strong nymph hooks.

Most would use these hooks for salmon. I would be using these size 10-12 badboys on some buffalo, redhorse, carp, and other 'underutilized' fish next season.

Unfortunately, my wife just told me she wasn't going to put them in my stocking this year. Looks like I'll be needing to place an order soon!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Happy Holidays as well. The first trout bums DVD is sweet!!! I've probably watched mine 20 times.

I'm actually pretty set for fly equipment, sad to say. Maybe some under armour warm gear for next springs steelhead season and a new pair of nice polarized glasses.

Yep, happy holidays, all!

I've got some replacement items on the way, some new waders and boots, and that's about it. Maybe some hooks.

The winter opener isn't too far away! smile.gif

I hope everyone is able to spend quality time with loved ones.

May your dry flies float true and your backcasts miss the trees...

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
