14 posts in this topic

I have a friend coming up to LOW with 3 others, 4 total & they are looking for advice on sleepers. Obviosly they want to catch fish, and they are looking for the full deal, transportation to & from, rods & everything.

Dude's Name is Brair from Bermidgee.

Did I miss anything Blair? Dates?

Next weekend, Saturday overnight. 2 of the 4 will be ladies (one of them originally from da range and appropriately low maintenance ... the other unknown)

That'd about do it.

Call Arnesen's. See what they have. The guides love to see women there and usually treat them very well..

First of all, how much did you pay Blair to refer to him as a friend?

As for your question, I personally have never rented a sleeper, and can't recall ever talking to anyone who had. Your "friend" is going to have to call around, escpecially since he wants to go next Saturday, and I doubt there is going to be much available. Wish I could be more help.

The sled will be fine, I had it fixed for real after you fixed it remember....and only the lettering is yellow. Unless of course you mean that I will be pulling your broken down butt back to shore, then I can understand why you packed it.

Are you going to help put Blair on some fish or are we just going to sling insults at each other?

(I'm cool with either really, I was just curious...)

What do you want me to say? The fish this time of year are spread out over the mud flats, and hanging around the sharp drop offs near the reefs. There will probablly be a number of fish coming through suspended that are typically pretty aggressive. Saugers should not be hard to catch less than a foot off the bottom. Use a jig with some glow red or pink on the dead stick, and work something like a gold Buckshot tipped with a small minnow or just its head on your jigger. It will make life a lot easier if at least one person has a flasher, just so you can tell if there are fish down there, where they're at, and which baits they like more.....

You mean stuff like that nd? Cause if you do, I can't right now, I'm too busy.

Hmmm. I suppose you guys could get REALLY creative with the insults (yet clean enough so nobody has to CONTACTUSREGARDINGTHISWORD)I could just print the thread and do a poetry reading for Doecamper's guests.

Course I could also do the same thing while drinking beer and ripping lips through the ice ... with bonus style points for the poetry reading ...

Walleye Jon is over stimulated because we are going "across" the lake tomorrow to a legondary walleye "spanktuarry" on snowmobiles...

He seems cranky but he's really just suffering from his limited thinking capacity, the big day tomorrow is quite a distraction.

I can't even take that as an insult, because you're right. I caught myself staring at my untied shoelace for 20 minutes as I planned how and what I was going to pack into the Otter for the journey. Then I got up, and tripped on the still undone lace.

Told the wife I was going fishing tomorrow... she said she would probably paint the living room.... [PoorWordUsage] does that mean Jon? I mean really, what does that mean???

I guess it means I'm going fishing. I'll bring beer if you don't mind natty light, Our fearless leader dropped off 4 cases of that stuff at my house last night for plowing his driveway...

I don't think he understands I just like smashing snow around with my old truck & he just simply has better snow to smash than I do at home....

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
