Who's braving the elements on Sat-Sun

10 posts in this topic

I'm really looking forward to my usual saturday morning fishing trip, I'm taking a guy out for the third time this fall, the last two times I've taken him we've had really good results, so the pressure is on to produce the fish, I got a mix bag in the baitwell, redtails, shinners and fatties, I'm ready, I love the challenge! Got the game plan set and I'm pumped! grin.gif

Not a good day for us. One big ugly sheepshead, and one really nice crappie. Walli1 saw you just south of the bluff's launch about 10 am? riverdancer, saw you down at prescott, that is one sharp boat! We fished from about 10am until about 2 pm mad.gif

Sparkyber, You really had to work for them today, seems like a few degree temp difference and they just didn't want anything. We did manage a limit today though. What boat were you? We left about the same time. I think I'm going to wait until next week to try again, stop and say hi

Say riverdancer I had to buy breakfast for my buddy cause you lost that fish you had on while I was passing by, I bet him that someone will catch a fish when we went past that area, you were my free breakfast, sorry you lost em! Well I'll be out again in the morning hopefully the fish well be willing to bite again!

we were the two guys in the crestliner fishhawk 1750, we made one pass at prescott and headed back north. We graphed fish all morning, but getting them to bite was another story. I hope we will be able to get out next week, but it sounds to be pretty cold and snowy next week.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400.
