11 posts in this topic

Heading up to Mille Lacs this weekend for the full moon bite. Will be fishing the west side of the lake. Looks like I may have an open seat, as a couple of guys planning on coming with me had to back out this week. We were up for the October Full moon and had good luck.

you can email me at krmrappr@smunet.net if you are interested or call 712-260-4700, or just reply on this post...

No problem. Maybe another time. I would like to get up there and ice fish; havent done that for quite a few years. Have 3 daughters that play basketball(I coach one of their traveling teams), so the winter time is pretty busy...

Sorry but I can't make it up this weekend. Man am I sorry. Wife has cold and 71/2 months along. Bad combo. I'm going to try to hit Tonka Sunday for a few hours. All the time I can afford. Will call you Sunday for a report. I may try to get up next weekend and want to get a report. Make sure you have a charge on you bow mount and take your charger. I only made it up once through the entire fall bite...I'm so sorry. Time should free up after #2 comes in January right?? Good thing I fished as much as I did when I was single.

Chris,

No problem. Am charging my trolling batteries tonight. Looks like the weather will be pretty good. Good luck with the little one. As far as time, I dont know if you'll have any more free time in the future, it doesnt seem to work that way with the kids. I figure I'll have plenty of time to fish when the kids are grown and out on their own(hopefully)....

I could go up late saturday, or in the morning sunday! I am going to the Wild game saturday night, but would be willing to drive up afterwards if you are going to be out late. Otherwise I could drive up sunday whenever you are planning on going out.

Kurt,

that would be fine with me; I usually stay out pretty late unless the bite is slow. I will probably go out an hour or so before dark(4:00pm or so?) both nights. I will have my cell with me, so if you wanted to drive up after the game or on Sunday, I can be reached. You can catch me at home tonite at 712-262-5795 or on the cell at 712-260-4700. I am staying at Twin Pines. Let me know if you would like to go..

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff

      Another observation from the tournament and pre-fishing: On LOW I don't usually get very concerned about colors on cranks. However, Friday and Sat, the UV white with pink striped top shad rap was doing about 6 to 1 in the mornings. Afternoons, the gold foil rap was by far our best color. I'm a bit color blind, but pretty sure that UV rap has pink on the top. Wonder what fish actually see...........not much pink striped stuff swimming around the big lake.

      1/18 Day 4   Day for was exploration Day for the family.  Amanda, the kids, and my mother in law spent a good portion of the hanging out in town.  Shopping and visiting a few of the local attractions.   The father in law and myself decided to pull his boat and go explore a near by lake we have been thinking about.  This would give us s little change of pace.   Fishing actually exceeded our expectations, especially for starting in the early afternoon. Unsure where to start we motored around watching the graph if an area I thought might be good.  after a short while we noticed most marks showed themselves in 18-21 ft on steep breaks.  With the winds blowing we decided to try anchor on top and let the wind drift us over the and bobber fish.  This began to seem unproductive after about 45 mins with no bites, yet we were marking fish.  Out of bordem I decided to raise up 5 ft and cast as far as i could to the top of the break (15ft).  The first 3 casts produced 3 walleyes 15"-18". The bobber never settled before they went down!  The walleyes them slowed but the perch bit really picked up.  Most perch where 9" but a few went as big as 11".   After that spot slowed we hit a few similar spots until we settled on a spot bit deeper but with lots of marks.  This spot would give us pretty non stop action till dark.  With different species rotating through. By the end of the day we caught: 12 walleyes ranging from 11"-21". 5 Pike 20"-30" and one really big one that bit a 10" perch as it was being reeled in by the FIL. Countless Perch, not many under 9"or over 10". And a few dozen bluegills 7.5"-10".   Service here is giving me fits with photos. Hope to post some when i get home this weekend

      Perchy - Insured?  If so, the adjuster will have some recommendations, off the record, on places for repair.

      For all you jigging rap fans out there are you generally jigging those vertically or on the move.   I seen some discussion earlier on the front hook and one thing that I have heard about that hook is a lot of people do take it off in order to prevent snags. I have donated quite a few jigging raps in the past to rocks on the big V I have donated quite a few drinking wraps in the past to rocks on the big v

      Help! I need to get estimates to have the transom repaired/replaced on my 2002 Lund due to an accident and have no idea where to go? I live in Owatonna. Thanks in advance!

      Not on mine either!!

      Every store is different as to what they have in stock so if your looking for a specific thing in your size you might have to hit a couple. I went to the Duluth store for my bibs.   Yes a lot of the stuff is still too expensive for going out of business sale prices.
