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.

      Brian, Under-bite = whitefish? I have not 'bled' my fish. What's your basic process? Thank you.
    • BrianF
      The size and color says 'whitefish', but the only way to tell for sure is if it had an under-bite to it's jaw - and that just isn't something this photo allows us to see very clearly.  In any case, nice fish!  Nice photo! Pat, question for you...ever 'bleed' your fish on the ice before bringing them in to fillet?  Make a world of difference in both the fillets you get and the mess the fish makes when cutting them up.  Maybe you bled this one in a different way from how I do it though.

      Tulibee? Last February on Frazer Bay

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early. 
    • eyeguy 54
      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
