Seeking a new Avatar

14 posts in this topic

For those that know me, you know I spend a fair amount of time on the water. Well, starting tomorrow is one of my highlight trips of the year in terms of catching big fish. I’m heading up to the Rainy River and Lake of the Woods to fish for our states largest and oldest fish – The Lake Sturgeon.

They are a rod breaking, anchor moving, boat circling, aerobatic, creature that commonly breach the 50lb mark.

This year I’m making it a 4 day trip in hopes of landing multiple massive fish. Last year it was a 2 day deal for me and it was easily the highlight fishing trip of the season for me. If all goes as planned, I’ll be sporting a new avatar picture come Monday. Bring on the Strugeon Excursion!!!

Have a good and safe weekend.

Have fun up there looks like the weather should be pretty decent for you up there. I was hoping to make it out to the Zumbro on Monday, but I can't stray far from home right now... waiting for my son to decide to leave mom and come meet the world. Hopefully in the next week or so... then I as well will have a new avatar!

Caught over 60 sturgeonfish in my boat. I got 2 over 50" with the biggest going 52" (45lbs) and the entire 30min fight and release was on film. It might be in the HSO video. Patients my friends. I'll get a report up and a new avatar in due time.

I only took a few picks with my camera and this is about the only pic that works for an avatar. It'll do for now. It's a 44"er that has a DNR tag in it.

My other buddy took most the pics and he will be sending them too me soon. He might have a better one for an avatar.

I don't think that the avatar does that fish justice. Looks like a real brute, can't wait to see the full size photos. Hopefully I won't be turkey hunting next year and can make it up there for some of that rod bending action!! smile.gif

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
