Matt Johnson Fishing Seminar - Opening Day Lunker Largemouth

Where: Thorne Brothers - 7500 University Ave. NE, Fridley, MN

When: Saturday, May 5th, 11AM


On Saturday Thorne Bros. will be having an Opening Day Lunker Largemouth seminar at 11am by Matt Johnson. Matt's seminar will be accompanied by Thorne's Spring Sale, as well as the Shimano Fishing Tour.

The Shimano Fishing Tour is sponsored by Ranger Boats, Yamaha Motors, Costa Del Mar Sunglasses, and Gamma fishing line. Come on in during the Tour and register to win a 20-foot Bay Ranger boat and motor package, two adventure packs from Costa Del Mar and other great gear prizes!

And now here's the BIG DEAL! Someone is going to have a chance to walk away from the Shimano Fishing Tour with $10,000 in Shimano's 'Cast For Cash' Challenge!!! The contest will go like this.....everyone who shows up will get a raffle ticket, and on the last day (Sunday), one person will get drawn toward the end of the day to get 1 cast at a target. If they make it, they win $10,000. They will have no prior knowledge as to the target size, distance, etc. but will get 10 -15 minutes to warm up prior. This will be a great event for the kids--so bring the whole family.

Come on down, enjoy the seminar and the other fun events at Thorne this weekend!

      Fishing good today. Finally got a break in the weather! Fished alone. 32 fish total. Ten walleyes mostly big ones but I did keep an eater, rest bass. Three at 25". Biggest bass 19-1/2" - 4.60 lbs. Best lure Fin-S-Fish on 1/4 oz football jig.   I wasted the early morning trying to catch some more big pike - zilch. Downsized lures and got into bass & walleyes. My guess is they are filling up on ciscos - especially based on the pike stomachs yesterday - stuffed!   Today's video

      Today was a mirror image of yesterday for us. Caught 15 with 11 being 14-17" and 4 between 19-22". The only thing i can really add is that we couldn't be more subtle with the jigging motion. Most of our hits came by holding the jigs inches off bottom or in that instant that the jig sat on bottom when you made contact with bottom.

      Gave grindstone a try yesterday. I guess the dredging made a difference, but had I not known it happened, I wouldn't have noticed. Was a bad day for my outboard to have carburetor issues, as the wind was blowing much harder than the predicted 7 MPH. Battery got drained pretty quick trying to troll with the electric motor in that wind. Regardless, was still a nice day. Caught 1 little smallie, a 28 inch pike (which was a blast to catch on ultra light tackle), and a nice 17 inch rainbow trout.

      Got out for the first time this year last weekend. Opening morning got my two roosters and then started scouting. I didnt see much for birds all day until in the evening when I saw about 40-50 redheads on one pond. Set up there the next morning with my old man and we got 3 reds, 3 gwt, and a woodie and mallard drake. Next day saw more ducks on that pond as well and ended up setting up there as well the next morning. We shot 5 bluebills and 2 bonus geese that morning. Then shot a nice fat rooster that day and headed home. Im off the next 6 days after today so we'll see what kind of trouble I can get myself into. I will post pics on the other thread when i get a chance.
