personal best fish

10 posts in this topic

One of my sons went sturgeon fishing last weekend and caught his biggest ever. It took him 45 minutes to get it in and then he couldn't get it into the boat so he had to row ashore and then land it. It measured 66 inches and weighed 80 pounds. He e-mailed me pictures but I don't know how to get them on this sight. I would really appreciate it if I could e-mail them to one of you who could bring them up for me. Thanks.

Thanks, marine man. To put it in perspective, Matt is 6ft. 2 in. and weighs 240lbs. So if the fish looks big with him holding it I guess it is. He was fishing alone, so he had to take his own pictures of himself with the time delay on his camera. He caught a 62 incher a couple hours after this one and didn't even think it was worth taking a picture of. That fish had very distinctive coloring, so if he catches it again, he'll know it. Little fish like Walleyes and Flathead Cats don't thrill him as much anymore. grin.gif

I have a question for the moderators of this site. How big does a fish have to be before it's pictured on the front page??? grin.gifgrin.gif Does 66 inches and 80 pounds get close?

Couple years ago we had a 117 pound Sturgeonfish on the mainpage. 'Hibbing' had a beast around 100 pounds but it was'nt on the mainpage, it sure looked waaaay BIG on the LOTW page though! Where was that one caught? You would'nt happen to know the girth on it would ya?

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      yesturday we were about 1/2 mile below the sartell dam and 4 jet skiis headed north to the dam area. the kind that yo stand on. looked like they all had go pros on helmets and looked like they were on a mission to have some fun. would have been nice to see what they did up there.

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
