Jigglestick?

9 posts in this topic

Hey jigglestick, are you sure you didn't get the last batch of scales mixed up? They were kind of dried out and hard to tell for sure, but it looked like the larger fish was younger than the smaller one.

lowe, i didn't think so. do you think...na it couldn't be...maybe the work of the mischievious url triangle!!! it has been known to get things(me)all mixed up before.
sorry they were dried out. i lost track of them on the counter. if you switched the ages around would they make sense compared to the samples i sent earlier? i was hoping to make it down this weekend,but the weather sounds like a major snowstorm. how's the smelt run? i'm in this 612 hell hole, and can hardly wait to get back home.thanks------later------jigglestick------
we learn more things here by accident, than elsewhere by design------

It looked like the 9-3/4" was 6-7 years old and the 14" about 4 years old. The scales from the 14" were samller than the other one, too. Must have been a mix-up. That URL triangle must have some strong juju.

I don't think the smelt are running real heavy yet, but the black suckers are starting to spawn in the river by my house, which usually coincides with the smnelt run.

Spending your days in Minneapolis instead of Washkish now, huh? There's a little bit of difference between the two metro areas, don't you think?

Lowe: I could send you scales from a 15& 1/2" URL crappie, if you want or if someone hasn't already. It was 2lb.2oz. caught somewhere in the dreaded triangle. Let me know if you want me to. Stan C.

Jiggle...Left my cell # on your e-mail, call and Paul and I will meet you at G.L. in Gumption County for a cold one. Talk to you soon. If this weather keeps up we'll have to pull the jiggle auger out one more time! Ken

Stan, that'd be great - I was wondering what happened to the big crappie I had in my bucket that one night. ;-)

Send it to Kurt Anderson, Box 338, Brookston, MN 55711. I'll post the age on the forum as soon as I get the scales.

Kelly, Well you know the saying about even a blind squirrel finding an acorn. The big crappie was caught last year in March though, only one of two all year for us. The plan was to catch another one and have them mounted. Still working on number three. I sent scales to Lowe today. We didn't catch
any 2 pounders this winter, maybe next year. I hope your outside work is going OK, Mother Nature isn't cooperating real good for us right now, sometimes we forget who's in charge. Stan C.

Stan, I have mainly been doing all the paperwork that piled up over the winter. What an ugly pile of mail. It has been interesting tho as I found a Birthday card that "littleitaly" was supposed to get in Feb. mixed in with a pile of stuff from some group that calls itself IRS. They must really like me as they sent a lot of stuff. smile.gif

      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!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect
