Jiggin stock car racing and fishing

2 posts in this topic

Jim I noticed on your bio that you are a stock car fan also.Tonight at the Alexandria fall classic I had the pleasure to sit with Lou Fegars ,his lovely wife and their son.They live on Lake Minnetonka and expressed the excellant fishing they have enjoyed for years.Got to pick Lous very brite racing mind and found out that he started racing in 1949 at where Sargent Field now stands in Chicago.Thier grandson was racing tonight and they were telling me which cars and drivers at the races were built by them or used to race for them.This was a great experience for me.told them how much fun I have had fishing the lilly pads in front of thier home after they described where they lived.Saw your relly dale too.Second time ran into him at Alex this season.Maybe a fishing venture with what I call a racing legend would be fun Eh!Small world after we discussed people in common from the area they live in.Kind of makes the crossover between fishing and racing more comfortable for me.

Prime, Most of my race watching now comes in my den. More fun being there, but then we don't have many drag boat( freaky fast fishermen) races around here. I took my wife to her first stock car race in Redwood Falls. She grew up there and never went to any of the races. I brother-in-law lives 6 blocks from the track in Alex. I had guide trips on the friday and saturday, in the cities. A gentleman from Texas, wanted to learn more about walleye fishing. Has only 1 lake 50 miles from his home that has walleyes in it. Showed he a few things to try, He really enjoyed the fishing here in Minnesota. He caught his first ever walleye and smallmouth. Says "I'm coming here again, this fishing is fun". On the water at 7:00am, left around 4:30pm. smile.gif fishing all day life is good.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
