State Record Broken Twice on consecutive casts!

12 posts in this topic

Fishing the backwaters this evening for some White Bass (caught probably 50 in the 14-17" range).

On consecutive casts PapaGrump and myself hooked into two monster Mooneyes. His was 2lb 1oz and mine was 2lb 10oz and 20".

Looking tonight at the record, it's 1lb 15oz blush.gif

I'm pretty sure these were mooneye and not goldeyes. If so, record was broken on consecutive casts as Brian caught his first.

Fun Stuff. What a night with 7 species caught!

ok, after a little research, it looks like these are indeed Goldeyes.

2 oz shy of that record. Oh well, still a blast.

yeah, little bit slimed grin.gif

I thought really hard about making some bait with those, but it was hard to do knowing that's the only one I've caught in that river. Made them seem kind of rare, so I didn't want to kill it.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
