A Great Weekend

3 posts in this topic

Hope everyone out there got a chance to enjoy the Memorial Day Weekend. We spent the weekend camping with my in-laws over at Keisler's in Waseca. Its located on Clear Lake, which is known for a mass population of 6-7" crappies and also Largemouth Bass. The crappies let me tell you did not disappoint in terms of action. Saturday afternoon I got my three year old set up with a paddletail and a bobber and by the time I'm reaching down for my set up he's pulling in his first fish. On that note, I must say even though the crappies were for the most part cooperative, what you used definately made a difference. They only thing we used were paddletails, and color didn't matter, and we consistently caught more fish than others on the fishing pier by a long shot. You know how satisfying it is to watch your 3 year old out fish every other kid and adult in the vacinity? I don't know how many we all caught over the weekend, but it numbered in the hundereds. Here's a few shots:

Looks like you kept the little guy happy! Congrats on the good weekend.

Where can one buy paddle tails? Are they in the powerbait, or gulp line? Thanks in advance.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
