decoy show in Alexandria

8 posts in this topic

Hello to all you fellow spearers,

There is a decoy show going to be held in Alexandria on the 24th of February at the American Legion. It is in honor of Rudy Zwieg one of many local carvers in the area and it will have several carvers from all over the state showing off their decoys. So, by all means drop in and check out the show and take a chance at winning some great prizes.

I was planning on going there to check it out. I work with a guy that brings his decoys there and he told me about it too.

Is anyone thinking of making the trip from the twin cities that might like to split a ride? I'm not sure I can go, but I thought I'd ask.

Did anyone go? I was there for a little while. It was interesting to see all the different styles of decoys. I might have to check out the Brainerd or Perham show now.

Im sure there was alot of things there that everyone could be interested in. I wish i would have been able to get there, but with the weather, and work, just didnt work out. Hope there is one around the metro soon, or next year.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
