Fishing. Fishing! To most all of us forum readers that simple word has a good feeling to it. Most of us don’t get to do it as much as we would like. So we talk about it when we are not doing it. Each person brings a unique viewpoint to the talk. A novice might be real excited about her first fish. Everyone gets excited about they’re biggest or they’re most caught. “First” is something we all can relate to, that doesn’t change. But, “biggest” and “most” change from year to year. Some of us choose to remember exact numbers of our “biggest” and our “most”. Others take a picture or two to help the brain out. Still others simply trust to pure memory. The first method is the most accurate but people like me the last tends to be more satisfying. My brain tends to remember only the highlights of a fishing trip, while my records keep track of the good and the bad. If you’ve fished enough sooner or later you will have a trip with lousy numbers but was a really good time. Likewise, there are good numbers trips that something screwed up really bad (like losing a lower unit). The point of this is to allow others to have their stories. It is sad when people judge their own fishing by how much better it is then someone else’s! Good fishermen are good storytellers! Good friends are good listeners!

Good point! I think all of us have the same goal in mind....fish more and work less & less & less.

Good Job!!

I've won thousands of dollars fishing touraments, and as I read some of the posts I start to think that I'm not that good. I have yet(out of 60-70 trips) to catch 400 crappies, get a limit of 2lber's, catch a 56 in northern. I see fish 150 days a year and maybe that's why I have realistic results. The look on peoples faces when they do something that they have never done before is priceless!!! It is unfortunate that others have to try to take away from such a memorable moment just because they don't see the results through the same eyes!!

Opinions are like a**holes(everybody has one) sometimes it's better to just keep our opinions to ourselves!!

      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

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!
