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.

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.

      Joe The DNR guy has a point.  There is a distinction between taxing the general population, and charging a fee (call it a tax if you want to) that only hits the folks that use the service.       So trout stamp money is used to provide trout fishing opportunities.   The trout stamp or fishing license isn't a tax since you choose to pay it in order to engage in the activity that the money provides.       They have a certain amount of money to spend to provide or enhance trout fishing opportunities.   Planting lake trout in a lake that already gets stream trout might not be a good use of that money.

      How often do you change out braided lines on your ice reels? Finally changed my out, not sure how long it has been on the reel or if needed to change it.
