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

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
