What Gives??

9 posts in this topic

I cant believe the lack of chatter on here. No one is on here talking about how they are going to get'em on opener. Everyone must going through the tackle box putting the hooks on safety pins (thanks walli I really do like that idea) checking line and so forth.

I know I could go for some more of Walli's early morning pictures. laugh.gif

Walli... I look at these picture almost everyday... I'm so jacked right now for opener! Got all my rods out, respooling everything (going with fireline crystal/vanish leaders), lubing up the reels, polishing the boat (gotta get the Pool 4 grime off the sides!), reorganizing the tackle box (thanks for the safety pin idea!).... This is going to be such a slow week - feel like a kid the week before Christmas!!!

I really like fireline crystal 4lb I use it on my jig rods, no leader, it allows me to use lighter jigs, plus its really sensitive and no strech, I'm going to be rounding up bait this weekend hopefully, shinners are starting to run so it should be easy pickins, I'm going to hook up with my brothers most likely, we should be able to fill our bait tanks, have to stay ahead of the game. Ten days till opener, can you feel it!! cool.gifcool.gif

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
