Great fishing last night!

7 posts in this topic

I just got back from URL and had a great time. I fished last night from 8 pm til 10 pm and cranked in about 30 nice slabs. Absolutely could not have done it without the help of Kelly, who I met for the first time. This guy is amazing. Since I don't have an atv, he shuttled my fish trap and I out about a mile and put me right on the fish. He checked in with me about every 45 minutes to make sure I was doing well. Others that weren't doing as well, he would move them til they found fish. Now for you guys who know him well, I have a question. Is this guy everywhere at the same time or what? I couldn't believe the amount of work this guy did in the short time I was there. Helping folks on the lake, moving people around, talking to folks in the bar, etc. etc. I'm starting to wonder if maybe there were quadruplets out there all named Kelly. Yah, that must be it.

Kelly, thanks for offering your sleeper, I decided to head down to Winni last night and be ready for some early morning perch action today.
Thanks again and see you next year.

I second that opinion!!!!
I also met Kelly for the first time and Thanks again for offering the sleeper and for the wonderful fishing. Sorry Kelly I couldn't find you in the bar to talk to you a little more so I decided to drive all the way back to the cities. I'm sure we will see each other soon when the water opens up.

It was good to meet both of you and put a person with the name. Also to me it was further proof that 99.9% of the people on this forum are DA#@ good people. smile.gif
neusbaum,
We were able to enjoy that place for part of last night also until some jerks came and decided to try to fit 50 people into an area big enough for 8 people. After drilling all their holes the fishing died there. I did go over and have a short intense conversation with them,,, I do not think they like me. That must have been my evil twin brother. smile.gif
Last night the fish were right below the ice. A father and son had a hole so hot that they shared the same hole. When one pulled a fish up the other dropped his line down, as fast as they could go. grin.gif
Pete,
It's too bad that group did that to you and the others there. At least you got to see what the action can be like before they crowded in on you. I noticed they left the lake as soon as I picked you up. I told them that all they were doing was ruining your fishing and also their own by crowding up like that and making too much noise. I bet they believe me now.

i saw some thing last night that i never saw before. my kid j.j., (lol) said he had a bite, he lost it part way up, but he said when he was pulling it up to check his minnow, a crappie chased his jig right into the hole! he said if he would have been on his knees, he could have grabbed it. i told him to dangle it below the ice right away. he did, and wham! he came back and nailed the jig. he saw the whole thing. when i started catching fish, i was noticing the fish were on before it hit the bobber stop every time. then one time(at crappie camp)i was dangling my jig below the ice fixing my reel, i saw a flash, and a crappie came in and nailed my jig. we started fishing six inches below the ice. no kidding!it was dark out, but with the lanterns, we could watch the crappies slam the minnow plain as day. it was so cool, i never seen anything like it.my kid was even toying with them. pulling the bait away from them at the last second, then dropping it again to watch them make another pass, then to catch them, laughing the whole time. what a blast! if your out there tonight, it might be worth a try.
good luck,and be careful.-----jigglestick----

Jiggle:
I noticed the same thing but I also caught some of those 3 inch walleyes near the surface. Could it be that the crappies eating the walleyes?????

we could only hope-- no i think not.my uncle had about a sixteen inch walleye in his hole(kind of sounds like an old game warden story), and i don't think even a red laKE CRAPPIE could handle that. i think more likely, the after noon rain contributed to what we saw yesterday. either with nutrients washed into the lake attracting minnows, which are attracting the game fish, or oxygen getting washed into the water attracting the fish. any way you look at it,it was a blast. smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif
