thank you Kelly P and Jonny P

6 posts in this topic

Huge thanks to Kelly P and Jonny P for the plow work over the weekend. Kelly plowed us a new spot on saturday (green wheelhouse with white trim and tundra pickup), and we were rewarded with a crappie. Fished friday-monday morning, 30 walleyes and one nice perch. Seeing Jonny with the plow on monday morning was a welcoming sight. One the best experiences we have had on red, mainly due to Kelly and Jonny. If we ever need a sleeper they will be the first people we will call. Thanks again.

I was just as happy to see you guys! You two where the end of the road and the old 1ton did a great job but those two days put her in the ICU last night. Lots of very tired plow trucks after the steady snowfall, drifting and sub zero temps we have had this winter.

It always spooky when it warms up and the trucks start thawing out,parts just start dropping off...amazing what frozen ice and snow does to hold a truck together. \:D

I watched you set up Friday and you worked hard to not crowd any one. You earned my respect right there. I was more then happy to plow you out a new place to try Sat. I expected more crappies there with "Labsville" and Scott-z 1/4 mile away in one direction and Barbelboy and Blackshack 1/4 mile away the other way. But as has happened many times this year the crappies were smarter then me. grin.gif

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
