BEST FISHING EVER!!!! 3/17

5 posts in this topic

OK, I admit that the fishing was not spectacular but the weather could not be beat!! After going through 2 tanks of auger gas we finally found a few fish! A buddy and I ended up with 12 beautiful slabs and countless eyes! I did manage to catch a 39" pike on my ultralight w/6lb test line... after a half hour fight! What a blast though! grin.gif But the weather is what really made the fishing so enjoyable. It was warm smile.gif sunny grin.gif and there was barely a breath of wind! You dont get many days like that on Red!!

Agreed the weather was fantastic! For 3 guys we caught only 7 crappies but we didn't fish sunday. Moved around on saturday and didn't catch a crappie,but came back to base camp and caught 2 crappies later saturday night. Once again the weather was awesome!

Hey Slayer,

Congrats on your hard work paying off. Any tips on how you finally found the crappies after all that drilling? Depth? I'm heading up Wednesday and plan to search like you did...

I was out about 6 miles in 13 FOW. Just look for the rough ice and start drillin', when the water in the whole comes up nice and brown and dirty thats when you know that there should be fish in the area! grin.gif I only fish a hole 10 min and then move on, if the fish are there you will mark em' or get a hit! Search on and good luck!

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
