Weapons grade loopers???

8 posts in this topic

I heard a rumor that somebody flashed a piece at the French over a turf dispute. Anybody hear about that??? Apparently nobody called it in...

Didn't hear about that, although its not too surprising I guess (frightening though). Sounds like that scene in the big lebowski grin.gif Some of those fellas firmly believe that the loopers were put there for their enjoyment alone. It's definitely frustrating to have to fight a crowd to catch fish, but there are other options than pulling a gun. If s#!t like this continues, there could be a good market for fly vests or waders lined with kevlar blush.gif I was planning on doing a little fishing this weekend, hope I don't get shot....

A buddy of mine was driving by the Lester yesterday, and he said that a semi had lost control and was hanging over the lakeside edge of the bridge. From what he told me, it sounded like some of the concrete from the bridge had been knocked into the water, and there was diesel fuel leaking as well. That river's been a zoo lately, so its more than likely that there were several fishermen down below that filled there waders with a little more than water if you know what i mean. Scary stuff...

Anyone confirm either of these screwy incidents?

Definite on the semi in the river, was on the news last night. Guy was pronounced dead at the hospital, sounds like he had a heart attack or similar as they said he most likely died before the accident occured. I think they said about 50 gallons of diesel in the river.

Didn't hear about the gun. I try to stay away from the French (too many crazies-no offense fellas).

As for the Lester, consider it verified. I was down there yesterday after work to check it out. What a mess. Lots of granite slabs in the river mouth, but she is still flowing and fish are getting through just fine. Of course I don't know from catching any because that never happens.

I once shot a man in dispute over a highly guarded pout hole, so this doesn't surprise me at all.

MrS - An eel pout sling shot isn't exactly the piece I was talking about. smirk.gif

I drove up to the Lester just now to check things out. Looks like a pretty scary deal. I'd have hated to be underneath the bridge when she came down. I hooked a wild fish last Sunday right where the bridge came down. It did make the mouth more interesting though.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
