You typically lose rods? That'd be a tough pill to swallow!

How'd that happen? Once, I can see.

Wicked 1, I would have to guess, the big gator snagged all 4 lines and pulled them down the hole. Not sure though, just a thought.

I can see that happening. Everyone huddled around the one hole and then you here splash x4 and everyone goes "DOH". Bummer bout the two lost ones but glad you were able to get two of them back.

The last two trips to Red, we,ve lost a rod each time. One, we got back. We also caught another rod that belonged to someone else. That lake does seem to eat more rods than normal. I think it's because we fish for long periods so we sleep in shifts and the sleeping guys are the ones that lose the rods.

Well just got back from the pond. Stayed up there friday thru sunday evening. Really slow fishing, end up with five crappies and about thirty walleyes. Drill about a hundred holes and moved around. Thanks to John and Kelly for all the tremedous hospitality and moving us to a different location. Good night

No Asian Pro was not being a smart...

These are two anglers that I pay close attntion to, I may learn a few things.

When they fish they mean it. The sleeper house is just a place to store gear while they drill enough holes out in the wind to sink the lake.

When this guy says he caught 30 walleye that means he only averaged .15 walleye per hole.

Slow for them. They fish hard and are good at it. No sitting in the house staring at their bobbers for them. They are drilling and moving all day long and then all night long.

Hey Kelly - the group of 8 fished hard too. We just drank harder! The quake caused us to drink more.

      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.  
    • Wanderer
      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.
