Thank you Kelly-p

4 posts in this topic

The kids and I just wanted to say thank you for a great trip! He set us up in his sleeper house on Tuesday night and the fish started to bite immediately. I finally made my 4 year old son go to bed at 11:30, even though the fish were still biting. We then went and worked on the cribs all day Wednesday. When we returned to the house that evening a black suburban full of guys was set up about 25' away. Kelly had us moved to a new location in about a 1/2 hour. The fishing was awesome all night! Kelly, Brice, myself, and my kids returned to Morts and finished the last of the cribs on Thursday. Fishing was incredible again on Thursday night. Kelly came in and helped with the kids for a while, as I was having a hard time with tangles, baiting hooks, and removing fish. We released all of our fish the first 2 nights and kept 33 that were over 12.5" on our last night. We also released a lot of walleye's between 5" and 19.5". Friday morning we helped him get his house off the lake, had breakfast at WestWind and headed home. Thanks Kelly, the kids can't stop talking about you and our first time in a sleeper house. They will remember this forever! As will I.

Thanks to you also. You and the kids were a great way to end the year as far as the houses. The best way to describe it is that it was relaxing. You've got some great kids there. cool.gif Tell Shae that next time he has to eat the minnow. Sorry about all the new words he heard around me,,,,,I've spent all winter with fishermen and my social skills have dropped grin.gif As well trained as Shadow is he will be fun to watch on ducks this fall.
At least you got to see how close a house can be crowded I would be embarrassed to ever fish even 10 times that close anyone else.
Brice will be good addition to this loosely knit group of friends that fish URL.
One day he is a stranger that seemed very nice and the next one of those people that we look forward to seeing again. I bet he never dreamed of the hard work he got into with the cribs when he met us. smile.gif
Yesterday I took the guys (Tom, Tim,& Cole)that I set up in the portables the last night you were here to help stuff the last of the brush in the cribs. When we were done we just fished our way back across the middle of the lake. I found one place that I plan on returning to if the ice holds. I only caught one there in mid-afternoon but that place just felt different.
Thanks again for helping with the cribs. Do you realize that you have spent as much time working on the cribs the past 2 years as you have spent fishing URL?

I am glad we were able to end your rental season on a bright note. I know you made our ice season end that way! Thanks for the compliment on my kids, they are the best. They both wore there new shirts to bed last night. Good luck dunking the cribs on Tuesday! I will be working on getting a few more bouy's. If the ice holds for another week you just might see me again soon. Later.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
