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.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
