"We're here to fish, not to have fun!"

Said by my father to my brother and I when we had a couple too many beers on a fishing trip up north a few years back. He's very serious about his fishing...

We were ice fishing and had a very large musky hanging out right under our holes, and while we were picking up to move, My friend and I were talking about eating one and I asked what it tasted like, and Ryan's quote, with a dead serious, strait face, "It taste alot like eagle." I laughed so hard I almost fell off my chair.

This is now a running joke when we talk about eating anything new.

I've actually said that myself when frusterated with a screw-ball in the boat.

Quote:

Sit down! You act like a sail!


My Uncle to my Dad when Uncle Bob was Captain of the boat.

Quote:

Just let go of it, it'll float


Glug..glug...glug...Bubbles came up.

When my brother dropped the brand new, rubberized landing net over the side of the boat:

Quote:

Dude, you gotta set up your house NOW!!!


1/4 of the walk to the spot at first ice when it was -14 degrees, when the guts started to gurgle and stomp...

Quote:

Are ya' still mad I outifhsed ya'?


My brother, after the last open water trip to URL, where he caught 1 more Crappie then myself.

I remember fishing with my Dad as a kid, and when the bite was slow, he'd always say something like...

"Well boys, let's move, we're not getting rich here" or

"Geez, I wonder what Al Linder would do".

I have this line I often say when we are looking at a newly caught fish, "That fish is thinking, I feel awful, must be something I ate." Well, on a trip on Lake Michigan I say this about a salmon that was in the net. My fishing buddy goes, "Quit saying that. I`ve heard it a million times!" The guide goes, "If you`ve said that a million times you must catch a ton of fish." I was just dying. I thought my buddy was gonna jump in the lake and swim 4 miles back to shore. I don`t even have to bring that story up, my buddy does.

Here is a couple of quotes that I am sure have to rank right up there as the most common with allot of guys.

(A) It's 12:00 O'clock somewhere.

(B) Did we buy that beer to drink or just look at?

Well, guess you had to be there, but my dad, in a rather philosophic mood during a really long, quiet lull in the fishing, looks at me and says, "Why do they call them outboard motors? They're really engines, you know...".

Now I know where the "Deep Thoughts" deal from Saturday Night Live came from... wink.gif

This is not a fishing quote. I was reading the gas prices discussion and this struck me as funny. So I had to transfer it.

"Hmmm....

Several yrs ago, my buddy and me parked over some Rockies and caught 189 in 1 1/2 hrs without moving the anchor - that is more than one per minute for a full 90 minutes - "like shooting fish in a barrel". Anyways, I'm gettin' tired so I take a break and my buddy says, "what's the matter - bored?". So then to talk me back into fishing, he says "we may never catch fish like this again in our lives - keep fishing".

Ever since, at that same spot we fish every yr and limit-out on Rockies, and although not as fast and furious as the first year, we do run into some schools that wear me out and I will still take a break - but now I always remind him how wrong he was by saying "we may never catch fish like this again".

While fishing in 90 degree heat in 6 feet of water next to a steep break...my moronic (or is that brilliant?) friend drops his leech right under the boat while I am dutifully, & correctly, casting over the ledge. He immediately hooks a 15" walleye & while bringing it up says,

Him: "Hey, I've never caught a walleye, can I lip it like a bass?"

Me: "No. They have teeth."

Him: "Huh, they don't look so bad."

About five seconds later he had blood running down his hand & all the way to his elbow. To his credit, I've never seen him lip another walleye. grin.gif

After coming in from fishing one day, we started to grill steaks and one of the guys doesn't like his seared on the outside, so after a few cold ones (okay, quite a few) he takes the lid of the grill off, takes the grate off, takes the coals and starts dumping them in and says "Here, let's simmer these boys down a bit". What??? Hmmm....adds new meaning to putting another log on the fire. confused.giftongue.gif

On a Lac Seuel (sp?) trip with my dad and 4 other guys, one night after having again, cold ones, the one guy who has dry cracked hands puts some lotion on his hands and rubs it in. He takes the tube holds it out to my dad asking "Do you want some?" My dad, not really thinking before speaking says "No thanks....I'm trying to quit". We all tore up laughing at him and he finally figured out why. blush.gifgrin.gif

My dad always said "Hand me one of those pork chops (a cold one) it's time for breakfast!"

One of my best hunting partners always says:

"If we had some ham we could have some ham and eggs if we had some eggs."

Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

      Just got back from our 34th annual Grand Marais trip. Weather, and how bad it was, was the theme. At one point or another, it rained every single day we were there! The wind was miserable he last couple days as well. Really affected our fishing plans, as we had to cancel out on some of our normal lakes, and fish some less than desirable backup lakes.   As per tradition, we left in the middle of the night and pulled up to the Lester River just a few minutes before sunrise. Didn't catch anything there. Also got skunked at the Talmadge and French rivers. I got free admission at Tom's logging camp on account it was Father's Day  and as always, kids had fun feeding the animals. I did catch a few little rainbows out of sucker, knife, and Stewart rivers. Had our traditional "fisherman's breakfast" at McDonalds in Two Harbors. We stopped at the silver creek tunnel, and that was the first time I've been at the overlook since it was actually part of the highway back in '94. We rolled into Grand Marais at about 3:30 and had to wait out a rain storm before putting the boat out on Kimball Lake. We lost several trout, and in the end, only my 6 year old son caught 2 rainbows.   Monday we fished Greenwood Lake, and as was the case with my 2 older kids, my 3 year old daughter caught her very first fish here...a smallmouth bass! Between all of us, we caught about 130 bass, all of which were pretty small. Unfortunately no lake trout. However, a big surprise occurred...while casting for bass, I caught a herring! Then a few minutes later, my son caught one also! Never would have guessed I'd ever catch one in the summer, let alone 2!   Fished a "secret lake" on Tuesday and caught quite a few northerns. They were all either 5 pounds, or 6 inches long, nothing in between. My son caught an 8 pound, 33 incher, which ended up being the biggest fish of the trip. We was screaming, and excited, and wanted me to take his fishing pole. But after about 10 minutes he finally got it in so I could net it. He's still bragging about it. My 3 year old also caught her 2nd ever fish, a perch, which ended up being the only one of the trip.   Went up to Saganaga on Wednesday. I spent I don't know how many hours trying to catch lake trout, but didn't find any!  Finally gave up and ventured deep into red rock bay for the first time ever. Really nice back there, wish I would've went there first. Fishing was ok, considering the weather was starting to get bad. Caught the biggest bass of the trip, a hair over 18 inches. On the drive back we seen a bear. Ironically it was walking down the road to black bear lodge at Poplar Lake.   Biggest disappointment came on Thursday. The plan was to fish both Hungry Jack and West Bearskin lakes. The wind was terrible, and coming straight from the west. Had hungry jack not had the reputation as a big bass producer, I wouldn't have went here. Unfortunately the big bass weren't around, nor any bass for that matter. Only caught 4 small bass. Kids caught about a dozen or so sunnies from the dock at the resort, some of which were decent size. We didn't even bother with bearskin. There's no way we would be able to launch our boats in that wind. We went to Loon Lake instead. In the limited time we were there, we caught about 30 tiny bass. My 9 year old daughter also caught her first rock bass. I tried for lakers, and marked a lot of them, but didn't catch any.    So since we didn't fish West Bearskin as planned, we penciled it in for Friday. Knowing the weather was going to be bad, we picked Poplar Lake as our backup. I drove up to Mayhew Lake to start, because I wanted to check out the launch. I was able to get my boat down the launch, but it was a real tight fit. Nice little lake. We saw a mommy moose with 2 babies laying right on the shoreline. I got sick of trolling, so I decided to cast cranks along the drop offs of the one small stretch of shoreline that was out of the wind (relatively speaking). Hooked into a big fish! Got excited because I thought I finally had a lake trout! It was a northern!  never thought I'd be disappointed in catching a 5.5 pound pike, but that's what I was. Didn't bother going to Bearskin, as I knew the wind was too bad again. Went to Poplar, which is a lake I do not like! As is typical, the fishing was no good! He weather was bi polar! It would be bright and sunny, then rain for 20 minutes. Did that the whole rest of the day! Only caught 1 little pike and  1 little bass. Got excited for a minute, as whitefish started surfacing around my boat in the evening. I was hoping I could catch 1 or 2, but nope!    Saturday we were supposed to fish Two Island for a few hours before going home. But it was pouring rain. We didn't even bother driving around to different boat launches. So the trip ended on a sour note, but we still had lots of fun, seen a moose, had our donuts (I highly recommend the bacon maple longjohn by the way), and went to Sven & Ole's. I was going to go camping in Ely in July, but I think we'll come back to Grand Marais instead, and try to make up for what we missed out on due to the weather. IMG_6122.MOV

      I have not been on Rainy much as of late. On June 12, I got 75 walleyes in about 6-8 FOW. On. June 15 (Sanctuary opener) I hit Stangi for several hours and only got four fish. June 17, got 20 fish in about five hours - mostly walleyes on a weed edge in about 8 feet of water. Many on jig with Lunker CIty trailers. Also some good ones on a feather jig. Bass were few and far between. Plus some pike but nothing huge. Biggest walleyes 24-25". Bass 18", pike 29". View my fishing report to see videos of lures that were working.   I did mark lots of fish in deeper water but they were dink walleyes so I did not fish them for long.The dinks are actually harder to catch on lures than bigger ones. They respond better to live bait which I don't use.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
