Uncle Bill?

5 posts in this topic

Hey Uncle Bill, I would have sent you a private message but I can't figure out how!

Have you been seeing any grouse in your neck of the woods lately? I have a place on West Rush and usually tromp around the public stuff along the croix looking for ruffies. I'll be up every weekend in October doing the cast and blast thing.

FYI there was a Fishers of Men bass tourney on Rush last weekend and the winners brought in 5 bass for 24+ lbs! There big one was 6.89...WOW!

Thanks,

Ferny.

Ferney,

I have not seen many grouse around my area.

I'm somewhat surrounded by hay fields and pasture.

Could be the grouse are back in, or near the woods.

I have seen alot more pheasant this year, compared to past years. Alot of deer too.

6.89# bass !!.... Sheesh!

I don't fish for Bass, (except on the river) but even a non Bass fisherman has to be impressed with that.

Good luck,

Unc.

Thanks for the info!

I went out Sunday morning for a couple hours. I flushed 1 within 50 yards of the truck and missed it. I thought it was going to be awesome and never saw or heard another one. I did flush one woodcock but I don't shoot those anymore since the breast is so small. It was a great day to be out! I'll be back up this coming weekend trying for a doe (early doe season) with my kids in my turkey blind...any suggestions on a spot? I tried a spot last year and had 4 others for company nearby so I was a little concerned about our safety!

Thanks,

Ferny.

Oops, I forgot to add that I agree with you about the pheasants. I saw quite a few this weekend.

Ferny,

If you're asking me about State owned property, I don't know of any. Sorry.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
