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.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
