Saturdays results?

21 posts in this topic

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.

I'M STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW YOU TAKE A PICTURE WITH TWO CAMERA "ANGELS". THAT WOULD BE QUITE A FEAT. I ALWAYS FIND IT HUMOROUS WHEN PEOPLE RIP SOMEONE ELSE FOR A PICTURE, BUT CAN'T SEEM TO SPEL VARY GOODER WEN THAY POAST THARE COMENTS. tongue.gif

NICE LOOKING FISH.

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”

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
