Can you feel it? Does this cold front get you excited, I've been getting pumped up! This is just what is needed to fire up the bite, seems I can't think of much else besides gettin down to the river for some great fishing and some relaxation! I got plenty of redtails in the tank that are more than willing to sacifice their life to make my fishing trip more enjoyable! Fishing anyone! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I am hoping to get a kitchen pass to go out for at least a couple hours Saturday am...I can sense a feeding frenzy with it dropping to 30's and then jumping to low 50's....

I'm really trying my best to get down to the river tomorrow morning and give it a shot! For sure I'll be on the river early saturday morning, should be on the water around 4ish, just love being on the river early, it doesn't get much better. I've been watching this artic blast and it should be all moved on by friday and weather should be stable for the weekend I'm sure the bite is going to be unreal!

Hey Walli, have you ever concidered taking someone out with you? I've been dying to get on the river this year and lost my boat to a hole I found from the last owner. Thought it would hurt to ask.

Sorry to hear about your boat, I broke the spline and bent the struts in mine last year, got it welded up and its been leak proof till about a month ago and now its leaking again, if its not able to be fixed I'll take the insurance money and put the money towards another one, got a line on a proV and the wife seems to be okay with it. I don't have a problem taking people fishing, I've taken alot of people down on the river over the years, where do you live? I'm fishing by myself 65% of the time, I could fit you in! grin.gif

That would be great Walli!! I live in St. Paul. I can meet you wherever. I've been off for a couple of weeks and have about a week and a half more off from work, so I'm open to any times. You can email me at s_e_hendricks@comcast.net and I'll give ya my cell number or you can just let me know a place to meet ya. I'll chip in for gass/bait. I'm having an adjuster look at my boat. There's the holes that are around a grand and then the transom is loose so that's another grand. I'm thinkin' I'll take the insurance money and use the trailer and motor on a new boat.

      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.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.

      Captain Acorn, I fish Jiggin Raps quite a bit on Vermilion, have for several years now.  I Cast em, fish them vertical and move around and cover ground at a good pace with them.  I am not sure there is any key to getting snagged less, other than knowing your spots. They are certainly an effective and a great way to catch fish.  I personally do not remove either the front or the back hook.  Believe me if you fish these your going to donate a few to the depths, just part of the game.    Good luck! - Roosterman
