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

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
