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.

        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,

    • 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!

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      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
