Did I See What I Thought I Saw ???

19 posts in this topic

While watching the Tori misque replayed over and over again and while watching the same play he misplayed 4 years ago to the day, I noticed a strange bottle of after shave in Tori's locker. I didn't know Captain Morgan made an after shave. Maybe that is what Tori and Juan Roid-Con use to mix up their special "Power Juice" cocktails. No wonder Tori misplayed the ball so bad, after 10 rounds with Jose Cuervo he set sail with Captian Morgan! Windy

Hey windy, or anyone else for that mater. I dont know how to us the arkives so would somebody go back to the beginning of the baseball season to check on everyones predictions on how the Central would pan out. If im not mistaken, someone got it exactly right. Not sure who it was. cool.gif I know one things for sure, it was not windy.

But if someone can find it, that would be GREAT. thanks, Friendly

Are you spamming the Twins message board again today Windy? You got nothing better to occupy your October? BTW, the Tigers are on about noon today.

Those look like good eater walleyes, right Windy? Do you keep big ones to eat Joe, because the big ones generally should be put back to spawn. Maybe you should have posted that question in the perch or walleye forum.....

Noticing that nobody is answering the question. Was that a bottle of Captain Morgan in his locker? To answer your fish questions, those were about 12 walleye, smallest was 14 inches and the biggest was 19 inches. The perfect eating size and the ones that knowledgable fisherman keep. No use slicing up the 25 or 30 inchers as the meat is much tougher, full of PCB's and they are the good breeders for more little fishys, right? Oh yea, and the end fish on the right was a 5 lb northern that my daughter in law caught and was her first so we kept it and made some "poor man's lobster" with it.

Now answer my question as I have answered yours.

Commanche.....to me they look alittle small to be eaters...i guess most from what i hear is that most of us minnesota boys prefer eating 15-19" walleyes those look like they are pushing 12" with the exception of the middle fish! And the perch...well i guess 8-9" are most common eaters hard to say what those are but they do look small to me...all i can say is i guess i wouldnt keep those sized fish gotta keep a bunch of them to get any meat off of them...i prefer the size to keep that i mentioned above!!

My god.

Anything and everything to rile up the Twins fans and stroke your ego. Between you and Jim over the last month we have barely heard a peep. Now when the Twins are in the dumps, you guys start about 10 threads in two days.

You need to get a life other than the fishingminnesota baseball board. smirk.gif

Yes, that was Captain Morgan on his top shelf. I'm assuming he had it in there because of the prior celebration that they had. You know, the central division championship?

Well I didn't see it, if it was a bottle of the Captain it just shows he has good taste. What's your point Windy? he is over 21 and since they just had a celebration, you remember those right it looks like it is approved to be in the locker room. I really don't think you are getting anyone upset. Looking forward to your next witty comment, have not seen any for awhile..

To finish my previous post, yes the two fish on the left are perch. One is 10 inches and the other just over 10. Our guide who moderates one of these threads and is from Minnesota and a Twinkie fan is very selective in what he lets his people keep. He is strict on the 14" at the bottom and 19" at the top. The little guys get put back to grow and the big girls get put back (after a photo) to do what big girls do best...MAKE MORE FISHYS! He also has said that he hates Wishbone Resort's board. The nails hang the fish kind of funny and it always makes the fish look smaller. He has gone to a metal pole that he keeps in his boat for fish pictures after a trip. Sorry that it makes the fish look small but they ate pretty well. This pic was from a few years back but I am too lazy and computer illiterate to change my pic. Windy

Thanks Pier,

On both accounts, the help posting and attesting to the size of the fish. I know that the picture had to be squeezed to fit. But really, thanks! Windy

      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.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      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.
