Unexplained Mystery

11 posts in this topic

As I was going through my tackle bag getting it organized for the play offs, (post turnover) my plan was to spend a few minutes weeding out the summer stuff like, crawler harnesses, slip bobber rigs, etc. When I noticed that my bag is'nt as well oraganized as it was in early may.

The only possible explanation is that someone is breaking into my bag and messing it up. Has anyone else noticed this?

I actually had a good year this summer. My son never left the tackle box open in the rain once this summer. He has done this every year as long as I can remember. He is fifteen now and starting to realize things cost money.

I to have noticed this, My plastic box was full of gulps and now I find empty plastic containers, And I do find the gulps in the far corners of my boat, I think that they have been crawling out and trying to escape. But I have notice that I started off with one can of bug repellent and now have four. Somehow three umbrals have made it into the rod storage area and I find that my live well has a very fishy smell to it. I'm sure it was not like that in the spring smirk.gif

I think I have Gremlins from all over the state leaving odds and ends of tackle all over my boxes and boat. Dang Crappie Gremlin left 1/16th oz. jigs in my spoons and the eye gremlins left cranks in my looper boxes.

Oh well Ill fix them guys up real good come the pre freeze up period.

I've had those gremlins too. They live in the lake, I know that for sure as sometimes they take stuff from me while I'm using it. Greedy little..... wink.gif

Those Gremlins!

They take stuff out of my tackle box and hide it in my son's tackle box.

Weird huh.... confused.gif

I wish I had gremlins in my tackle box.

The last 8 weekends have been full of other "things" (honey-do's I think is what they are called), and the next 6 look about the same. Today was an open day and I just winterized the boat. I was very disappointed that my tackle bag was organized and things were in their right places in the boat. That's down right depressing

Your bag has old man disease.

Many, many years ago, my neighbor in a duplex was a very old retired lady. I worked second shift at the time and occasionally would go home for dinner break. One night, I got there and several police cars were parked around the place. Seems the old gal called the cops to report that someone had come in and was moving things around in her fridge.

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.

      I really hope they don't screw this place up. I love it out there and have done a lot of hunting there. I sure wish there were fewer horse trails. It shouldn't be so easy for hunters to access all the woods. That makes it harder to get away from the guys who want to hunt no more than 50 yds from a gravel road.    The dunes seems like a pretty special place to me. DNR does a lot of things that leave is scratching our heads, let's hope they manage this place properly.

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.

      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.
