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

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.

      Even in the metro the little bit of snow pack is insulating the ice pretty well so far. I've been out 3 days in a row and haven't noticed any significant melting. The forecasted rain for the next few days will probably change things a little.
