Weekend

4 posts in this topic

To the guys in the green chev fishing porty about 7 miles out of Hillman's this morning, thanks for the pull. Hope that tow strap treats you well for many years to come. To the dozen or so guys within a 1/4 mile of me trying to get unstuck, I will recognize several of your rigs for a long time. The guys from Glencoe (I also have the name etched into my mind) that couldn't even spare a shovel since they were leaving "shortly" best hope I don't run into them when I don't have a father and young son waiting for my return. A pardon granted to the plow truck that cruised 50 feet from me, turned around, and by again. I will make the assumption that you had clients to deal with and will gladly clink glasses to the theory that the customer comes first. Hopefully you came back and I was already out.

Fishing was slow. 5 crappies and 5 walleyes for the 3 of us. Marked alot of fish that would come up but not commit. Gotta respect all the fathers here. Tough to keep the concentration on fishing with all that a youngster can come up with to break it. Very tight personal slot of 15 1/2 to 16 1/2 led to many keeper eyes being returned highlighted by the 8 year old landing a 22 incher completely solo to the surface. In spite of all the self centered fisherman, a great trip once again. Can't wait to get up one more time for March crappies.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
