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

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
