Thursday Nite 10/19/06

3 posts in this topic

Well I might have to hang it up for my rifle. Tok out my 10 yr old son last night in hopes of showing him some big fish and a good time.

Started out at Liberty at 6:30 and trolled up to Lakeside. One nice 18" in the box in the first 10 minutes and thought it was going to be a great nite. Continued to troll lakeside and a little north with no more bites for two hours. Went to Hunters Point and trolled for another hour or so with no bites. Moved on to Big Point and landed nice 26 3/4" and that was it. Hung it up at 11:15 We were trolling from 5' out to 11'

Thats fishing. frown.gif

hey skeetman,

at least you got one for breakfast, if it made it that long...haha. you also got one thats 3/4" bigger than the biggest i got this year so far.

i am whimping out again today... :-( the weather is perfect, the boat is ready, but im not feeling energized enough to do the trip by myself. its a long day driving to mille lacs from st paul, fishing 8 hours or more, then driving home again and hopefully cleaning fish. guess the stars havent aligned...im not giving up on open water yet!

thanks for your report. times like those with your son have got to be priceless. ill bet it was a great trip!

regards,

minnesotatuff

Hey Minnesotatuff, I understand the long drive and all that. When I woke up Friday morning the old body felt pretty tired at work. Thursday nite was the fastest I ever cleaned a walleye I know that. My warm bed was waiting for me!!

It was a great trip spending time with my son. I remember times like those the most with my dad freezing in the boat or duck blind. I'm still keeping hope that the weather will break and we will see an Indian summer day but the way they are talking I don't see it soon.

Still keeping hope and getting blaze orange ready too. smile.gif

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

      I heard today that he has a bad rotater cup and is scheduled for surgery. Cliff

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
