The Fishing Continues...

Made it out to the river Sunday 11-12. I was accompanied by Randy R. Randy and I met when he ran his boat into mine several months ago. We have been fishing the same area for some time and finally got out together. The water temps have dropped to around 40 degrees and the Bass fishing has really slowed. Some fish did cooperate, a mixed bag of Pike, Wallye, Bass and a Catfish. This Big Ugly put up a good fight on 6lb test.

After checking a few of my spots with only some small pike and bass to show, we went to one or Randys spots. I was rewarded with two nice Walleyes, 20 and 24 inches.

This walleye is about as big as I have ever caught.

I always enjoy a day of fishing with a good angler, thanks for a good Sunday Matt.

By our warmer water river fishing standards, yesterday was slow, but some nice fish were caught. I definitely want a rematch grin.gif. I had a sub-par day personally, not able to get a hook into most of the hits I did get, but that seems to run in streaks. We talked about how you need to be there when the fish turn on, and yesterday confirmed that for me again. On tough fishing days, if you hang in there long enough the fish will eventually go on a breif but sometimes intense feeding period, but you have to be there when it happens. We caught most of our fish in about a one hour time frame, spending over 6 hours on the water.

I think one good hour of action is worth the wait!

Needed gloves to handle the cat but notice no gloves for the eyes. What's up with that? smile.gif

As previosly stated by Randy, it really pays off to be in the right place at the right time. It also pays off to have the right guy to put you there, thanks Randy for putting me on the spot! The more you fish the better your chances are. Fishing with the right people will really up the learning curve.

As far as you all Catfishermen go, Ralph and Hanson, I only had the glove on because it was cold! Here is how to hold a Catfish, if you do it right you can hold the mouth open and keep it from biting you. Please see below blush.gif

That blood is from the fish, really. This works real well on Bass. Northerns and Musky, not so much.

You're tougher than me. I'm already down to 9.5 fingers and I'd prefer to keep what I have left wink.gif
