Put a name with a face, and a boat.

28 posts in this topic

Everyone that posts here spend a fair amount of time on the river wink.gif. I would like to be able to recognize a few of you when I am out on the water. Most have listed there boat in other posts, but I think a list would help me out.

I will go first:

Green chev extended cab long box with a Triton FS 190. White with black and red accents, Mecury motor, or the same truck with a crestliner fisher-something-or-other 1750? tan. Mercury motor. (neighbor's boat).

honda- does your hound bark like crazy when somebody walks by? I remember a white dog a few weeks ago just eager to get out of the truck and lick me to death.

Yeah he barks but he whines more smirk.gif. Sometimes he whines so much that it annoys the crap out of me. And dont get him started on swimming. He would throw a stick in the water by himself, and go fetch it, just cuz he will get to go swimming.

usually put in at the Hudson launch... blue Yukon. My boat is a Monark King185 but I pulled off all the labels except the "185". Boat is tan/black with a 140 Suzuki. I'm either by myself or with my fishing buddy (son) and a friend or two of his.

18' Tracker Tundra with 135 Opti and a 9.9 Merc kicker. Kind of goldish in color being pulled by the "big black bus", a black Suburban. I'm sure glad the price of gas has come down a bit. Looking at getting into a new Lund 2010 but mama has veto'd that for now. Love the Tundra but the boat control is so much easier with a tiller.

'97 red F-250 reg. cab Powerstroke/ pulling a '84 T-14XL/ 82' 20 horse Johnson. Gotta love having more money in your tackle, rods/ reels, and electrnics than your whole boat is worth.

It's not the rig or the money or necessarily the equipment one has, as it is the knowledge one has of species and area to be fished!

10-4; if you have alot of that knowledge; you don't need any of that! Maybe just some boots, string, and saftey pin or 2. These warm temps make a guy want to get in the boat pretty bad; I can barely wait.

I have a black/grey alumacraft lunker with a 40 hp merc. 16 foot tiller model. Sometimes I have a white Lhasa apso with me. Don't laugh too much grin.gif, she has brought me good luck in the past though. She has been with me when I caught 2 of my biggest walleyes.

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...
