grrr.....not the best night

4 posts in this topic

I decided to take a walk back to a spot on the shore that looked good on a earlier hike. Grabbed three bullies for a few hours. Hoofed it back about a mile or so with my gear and 5gal bucket. Got tore up something fierce by the skeets (after taking a bath in Repel). Get back there, toss out, get pole all set up, take bucket to rivers edge for fresh water, dunk in bucket, slip on rock, bye bye two bullies smirk.gif

While grieving over my lost bait, my clicker starts screaming, run over, engage, nearly get pulled into the river.......get nothing back but a severely crushed bullie.

Count my losses, hoof it back through mosquito world. Get home to find that while scooping the bait I knocked the bubbler off my tank and all my bullies are dead.

Guess I'm off to find more bait tomorrow.

When it rains it pours! I have some sort of jinx that comes out when I go to Tonka. Sat morning I’m pulling the boat of the trailer and the lead rope unsnaps and off into the lake goes my unmanned Stratos. I would like to thank the two guys that went out and recovered my boat. Sunday I back down that same ramp check my lead rope, and put the boat in. Dead batteries! The bilge pump stuck on and killed the batteries during the night. So now I’m torked, back the boat in the garage still fairly agitated and WHAMO right into the new tool box.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
