Life is good!!!

7 posts in this topic

Was just discussing this morning with my wife my dilemma. Going pheasant hunting tomorrow, Sun morning I'd like to go bow hunting but I should get going early and claim a spot for pheasant hunting, will be pheasant hunting every night next week, then heading for SoDak on the 21st for five days of pheasant hunting, then taking some time off the first week in Nov to bow hunt during the rut - decisions, decisions!!!

Life is good!!! The best time of the year is here!!!

Wish the better half here was that understanding!!! frown.gif Guess I can't complain though, T - 6 days until I leave for Colorado elk trip!

By the way, from what I've seen the last few days and heard from others, I wouldn't wait until November for rut activity. Seems to really be picking up already now!

When I was first going out with my wife, she said she couldn't believe that I'd just take off for weekends at a time, now 18 years later guess shes used to it and plans accordingly. Shes going shopping this weekend and heading to her Mom's next weekend.

You're right, deer are going to start heating up but pheasants come first, I maintain two labs and love to hunt pheasants, going to hit them hard. But I love deer hunting too so when the rut really heats up, and I get back from SoDak, I'll bowhunt morning and evening and hunt pheasants during the day. I'll probably lose 10 pounds in the next two weeks. Good thing I drink beer so I don't waste away!!! grin.gif

Lawdog... best of luck to you! That would be an awesome hunt!

When the Lil Mrs and I were dating I told her that she could tell me anything that she wanted to but "Don't ever tell me that I can not go hunting." To date she has never told me that! If fact she is giving my son and I an early Christmas present in a guided deer hunt in northern MN. I think that she still thinks that I am crazy to get up and leave at Oh-Dark-Thirty to hunt but hey... that's what I do. Take car and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

When I started dating my wife I told her she would not be seeing me that much in the fall. She asked if she could get a bow and hunt with me to see what all of the fuss was about. I thought no problem, she would only be a fair weather hunter I figured. Well long story short I cannot get her out of hunting camp, she takes 3 day weekends and 2 weeks off for the prime rut and is thinking of taking off more this year. I wish she would just go shopping once in a while. grin.gif

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?

      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.
