How was the G T G?

19 posts in this topic

I was not able to make it. We had a sick little boy in the house yesterday and the wife stayed home this morning. The stomach flu -- ick.

We also worked on Pinewood Derby cars yesterday afternoon..

So how as the fishing? Who caught what?

Just having a little fun -- I work at a newspaper so we get along -- most of the time. ;\)

Wife got a ticket in Mhd late this summer -- you should check the thread -- this is where the teasing comes from.

Hitman, he is just teasing you...its all fun and games.....he might have even been the guy that wrote your wife the ticket. Should have been at the G T G and we could have exchanged stories. Take care

Hitman...what's the word on Silver Lake..tried it once last year and wasted an afternoon out there. Any reason to try it again in your opinion?

Yes it is worth trying. I would head for the north west corner or the southwest corner.

It is a strange lake. i have had some success there but I have been skunked more often than not.

It is like a lot of little lakes -- when they are hitting it is awesome, but when the shut down it is over.

Stay away from the other people if you can. That should help.

The best day I ever had was on a very warm summer day in july. 90 degrees no wind. A buddy and I were watching some of the local "talent" on the beach and some of the dudes with no teeth that come from Fargo.

Why do those dudes have more Ink than teeth. And when do they bring their pit bulls to the beach where kids are?

Anyway, we caught at least 15 eyes that day and some had couple of huge crappies. Strange. They should not have been active, but they were.

Silver -- yeah it is worth it but it is all about timing.

Thanks for the response. I've heard good/bad about the lake. It's also not far from town..easy drive from Moorhead to spend a nice day on the lake.

Dogwatch, remember last year when we went there, wow, really bad. But it is refreshing to hear that there is in fact some fish in that lake. the Perch

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      I am ready to fish now that turkey season is done for my nephew

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

        Ya, I Was corrected already. Sorry.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.
