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.

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.

That wind & high pressure had me scrambling.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
