100's of fish caught

18 posts in this topic

Where to start.My head is still spinning.

OK I got it,bagged work at 3 bells .My son and Dad & I hit my hole for what I thought would be good ,but so so.

crappies004.jpg

I was soooooo wrong! :lol:

We caught 100's of fish.

The bass were coming..Do I love those fighters,my son does too!

The water was 50 on the nuts and we were work 2-4 feet of water.

You can tell that the water is warming,look at how black the males are getting.

T.H.E. jig was working really well.

Too well ,I caught another bass after I do not know how many I reared on & snapped off.I know I should have retied ,but I had more.

Well anyway I switched to loby's Drag-n Mags & never skipped a beat.

They inhaled that plastic like no tommorow.Like it was there last meal.

I strapped on the Drag-n Mag onto a 32nd oz jig that was white with orange eyes and a collar.

I know the 1st one caught 30 fish and was in the mood for more ,but like earlier I had more & a pike snipped it off.

Well I retied in about 45 seconds and went back to drilling them again.

To be honest I'm glad I sent them home with the 20 we kept &as my arms hurt & this post is draning what I have left.Sure is nice to not have to clean fish.

had to leave a few for seed anyway.

I had Sunday open yet & I asked if those two giggling girls wanted some more abuse.I think you know the answer to that.

I also got a firm handshake and a wink from pops,so cool.

As we drove back across the lake I looked back to say goodnight , this is what she said back.

Nice job, I hope to be doing that with my father on Monday. He always seams to have trouble catching fish. If that is your dad in the picture behind your son, is he from SSP? He looks like a guy who I played ball with a looooonnnggg time ago.

Not the same guy. It is funny though, they say everyone has a twin somewhere.

yup my dad too.

He used to be one heck of a fisherman & hunter ,but the stroke did him in so now I really try to cater to him & do all I can to get him in the fish.

I'll be going back in there in the after noon tommorow.

I have another small lake that has monster gills in it that I'm going to see if they are in yet.

It's loaded with springs so it takes a bit more to warm up.

I'll come back to make the posts.

I think I'll start a new thread called Bulls& Slabs.

good luck finding some quality fish!

Those bulls just started so we will have a few days of banging until openers.

Too bad you are busy or we could go tommorow for those bulls.

I do not have a date for tommorow so I'll be home tying should someone pull up with that pro-v.

Here's some parting shots at the end of the day.

That cold front moved them out to some deeper water 6-8 FOW.

I figured as much and we did find us some,but not as many.

Here's my son David with a few he caught.

Snagged a few today.Nothing huge ,but respectable.

That wind & high pressure had me scrambling.

Ole Cyberfish was a blast to have out today.

Once these crappies spawn we will see those really big bulls move in.

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow     
    • otterman91105
      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs

      Vermilion is less than 20 miles... Or eagle nest 3 (and 1 and 2) are right next door.   You might check them out.
    • rundrave
      Love seeing guys out training dogs but you can really do  some serious damage to your dogs neck if it runs hard for a long distance before being stopped suddenly when the check cord is attached to a collar. I would suggest a harness instead that has attachment at the back that you can clip your check cord to. It will also flow off the back and less likely to get tangled up in the legs and belly which can also be dangerous especially when in the water.   It doesnt look deep where you are but you never know whats under the water that could snag your check cord. Sorry dont mean to preach but I have seen it first hand where a dog has been seriously injured from this. I know the prey drive and hard charge these dogs have, but you got to keep them safe.   good luck

      Can you keep smallies from the Ottertail?  Thought there was a restriction on them in there.
    • Chill62
      If I go on an infected water I get it cleaned regardless.  Granted 99% of the time I fish a non-infected lake but still get it cleaned just incase.
