Saturdays results?

Recommended Posts

toddb

How did everyone do this weekend? Myself the wife and our two pooches hit the big pond with pretty good results on Saturday. Caught around 25 'eyes and a dozen northerns. One of the nicer limits I have personally took home from LOTW in a while. Did manage 2 nice ones also along with a couple in the slot.

You are a wise one winonaman. I am so glad someone finally caught me. I am such a pathological liar I almost can't stand to be in the same boat with my own ego! Here's how it went- I catch this fish you know, a pretty nice one even by my high standards. I think to myself, maybe I should throw her in the livewell for 90 minutes or so and have my wife take another picture. No one would ever think that they were the same fish in a million years blush.gif. She even thought it was a good idea. Women know that a man's ego needs to be stroked a little every once in a while. I'm not saying you may be a touch jealous, but post photos of your weekends catch and I will critique yours. Watch who you call a liar man, especially when you have no clue what you are talking about.

Nice fish Todd.

My boy and I had a fun day also. We caught a couple big ones too.

1/2 day on the water, and 1/2 day on the Links... as we are watching Hockey night in Canada as the night winds down... my boy says... it don't get any better then this dad... we both fell asleep during OT... grin.gif

I'll see if i can put up a picture tomorrow.

thanks guys,

Widetrack-Sounds like you had a great day. Did you get your bigguns on hard baits or live bait. All our fish came on #7 shad raps trolled at 1.5 to 2.0 mph in a very popular early season location as yopu can see by the pic. There was only 1 other boat fishing there when we started and it steadily got busier as the day got warmer. A little chilly on the ride across Muskeg Bay! Looks like it will be another great year on the pond. cool.gif

Todd,

I think I see my cabin in the background... grin.gif

We caught fish mainly on hard baits. 1.8 was about the best speed. We did do some jig fishing and had fun catching fish that way as well.

Isn't it amazing that even with evidence such as wet bibs in the first picture and dry bibs in the second one, people still need to justify their own personal fishing shortcomings by negatively attacking another.

Nice fish man! And I really like cameras that post the time of the pictures in the lower right hand corner so you justify your catches to the non-believer.

If you follow this forum at all you saw Todd's pictures from last summer. I think by those pictures I would have to say he knows what he is doing. Those are some nice fish for sure. I have got to get up there this summer for so open water action.

iffwalleyes,

It's alot of luck, if I knew what I was doing I wouldn't have driven 85 miles yesterday to fish in a wind tunnel! wink.gif

Did catch a nice limit but not alot more (23" was the biggest). Boat control was next to impossible with the wind, but there were alot of fish on the locator to be caught. Drift speeds were around 1.5 mph and I couldn't troll less than 2.5 mph if I wanted to be able to steer the boat. Fished west of the blinker in 14' to 16'.

Nice fish Todd. What blinker do you speak of?

Are shiners a issue up there to locate? I enjoy your photos keep posting them. They keep us folks who cant get there as often dreaming of days on the water on LOW!

thanks

wicky,

The "blinker" is the red lighted buoy straight out from the Warroad city access "The Jetty". Pretty good early season fishing there if the wind is bad and you can't get out on the lake. Shiners in Roseau and Warroad are hard to find usually, but I usually don't look to hard for them as I pull cranks most of the time. I did get a few decent eaters on leeches the other day west of the blinker.

Great fish don't let anybody try to put those down...

I just looked at a few of winnona's posts and I agree he really has some grammatical issues. I suppose it is all of the IM’ing shorthand “MAN”

      Yes lots of truck traffic

      15-23 inches in most areas  Don’t drive through the narrows on blue headed towards little blue you will sink your truck.

      So I don't usually fish for pike often with tip ups and I'm just wondering if dead suckers work well? All of mine died literally after 1 day and it seems a shame just to toss them away, especially when they cost $6.50/dozen

      Try cross-country skiing, fat biking and more
      Winter may have gotten off to an especially cold start in 2018, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy what’s left of it. For an introduction to snow sports, stop by the annual Winter Trails Day extravaganza at Fort Snelling State Park on Saturday, Jan. 20, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Adults and kids can try cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, fat biking, ice fishing, quinzee (snow shelter) building and archery. Other activities will include ice harvesting, storytelling and an ice globe demonstration. Guided nature hikes will also take place every half hour, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Between activities, visitors can enjoy hot cocoa around a crackling bonfire. Activities will be set up near the beach area. “Winter Trails Day is about helping people warm up to winter,” said Kelli Bruns, park manager at Fort Snelling State Park. “The cold weather months are more fun when you find an activity you can enjoy alone or with others.” This year, for the first time, sign-language interpreters will be on hand to help make the day’s activities more accessible to those with hearing disabilities. Stop by the registration tent for more information. Winter Trails Day is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the National Park Service, retail co-op REI, the U.S. Forest Service and Mississippi Park Connection. Use of skis, snowshoes, fat bikes and other equipment will be free, but a vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks and recreation areas ($7 for a one-day permit or $35 for a year-round permit). Save time, get vehicle permit in advance
      Although permits are available at the park, people attending Winter Trails Day can avoid waiting in line by getting their permit in advance. Visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations, log in (or create an account), click on “entry permit,” select a duration of “one-day” ($7) or “year-round” ($35), and continue as directed. You’ll receive an email with a permit that can be printed and displayed in your vehicle during your visit. For more information, call the park at 612-725-2724 or visit the Fort Snelling State Park Web page at www.mndnr.gov. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
