Opening weekend sounds

Recommended Posts

Bobby Bass

Lake Iwanttobethere sounds,

Zipper opening on the tent in the middle of the night because someone has to go.

Snoring from the guy in the tent two sites down.

The call of a loon at dusk.

The drumming of a grouse at noon.

Cooling of a dove at dawn.

The distant call of a crow.

Crackling of a fire.

Bubbling of the outboard idling at the dock.

Beep of a graph being turned on.

Clicking of a reel.

Screaming of a drag ( my favorite)

Waves lapping against the side of a boat.

Rod bouncing off the gunwale.

Crushing of a chip bag.

Gurgle of the truck exhaust in the water.

Louder clicking of a winch.

Plop of a bobber hitting the water.

Clearing your throat and have it echo back at you.

Laughter from the other side of the lake.

Your heart when you have your first fish of the day.

The contented sigh of finally getting on the water!

The sound the sun makes when it enters the water at the end of the day

A Bullfrog

A Peeper

A Blue Herons cry when it has to fly.

The boom of the pizza cannon.

Honks of a flight of geese.

A barking dog on a dock.

A splash.

The slurp of a bass on top.

Snapping of sunfish feeding.

The painful sound of a jet ski.

Flapping of flag.

The cycle of a water pump.

Flip flops on a dock.

I heard these all on opening weekend, how about you?

I heard the drunk guys down the shore around their campfire at 3 in the morning yelling/screaming/swearing etc. I guess it's payback for all the crap I put the lake through in my younger days... grin.gif

You will have to go to the Outdoor discussion forum and read the fishing report for Lake Iwanttobethere. The Pizza cannon is used at Del's Pizza and Sub shop.

I got to hear not one but two speedboats with waterskiiers/tubers flying by me at aboot 10 feet on a 148 acre lake. Now who in there right mind would even bother to bring their speedboat to a 148 acre lake to go tubing/waterskiing when there are several larger lakes within 5 miles?

White-caps slamming into the front of the boat...

RAIN like a cow P'ing on a flat rock

Our "lake neighbor's" pug, purring. I did not know that any dogs purred!

The gentle hiss of a hen mallard sitting a nest

Kids screaming with delight in the cold cold water. And screaming, and screaming, and screaming... smile.gif

Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Weed Shark

Laughter from four friends, together for the 25th year.

A buzzing, massive cloud of fish flies.

A jack-hammering Pileated Woodpecker.

The thudding of a six pound dogfish in the boat.

Wailing loons at dusk on the lake.

The Ker-plunks of released large Bluegills.

Pelting of rain on my rain-gear, driving 30 mph across lake.

Thumping of Crappies and Walleyes on the cleaning board.

The whap, whap of my friends engine cylinder...half-way home.

2 guys in the front of my boat sing without a radio (that was terrible).

Did you tie the minnow bucket to the boat? (minnow bucket was floating)

Bobber's down, set the hook. (Bobber back up and floating because someone burnt the line with a cigarette)

- The chorus of barking spiders that only seemed to begin once we were all in the RV and the doors and windows were shut...

- The violent WHACK of boat hulls slapping Mille Lacs rollers...

- The cry of "down, down - DOWN!" at midnight while "Corkin'" on Shaw's Reef!

- The sounds of old Farmall tractors launching boats at Appeldorn's smile.gif

- The *bleep* of the graph as we motored over a gravel bar...

- Mommy, I gotta go pottie (as Daddy is pulling away from the landing)!

- A voice from behind me while fishing on a public pier at WBL: "Are there any fish in this lake?" My rely: No sir, there are no fish in this lake at all, just dead bodies.

- The big splash I made as I slipped off the trailer toungue while trying to line my boat up for recovery and realizing that my wallet and cell phone are in the same pocket and just as wet as I am.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.
    • Wanderer
      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.
    • Wanderer
      Get some sea foam in that gas tank and run ‘er!  I can’t tell you exactly where it’s gummed up, but it is.  It’ll take a tank and maybe two but it should clear up. Or, take the carb back off soak it and clean every oriface you can find by poking and blowing compressed air through all the holes.  Put a new carb kit on it and reinstall. Whichever way you prefer should work. Mix your gas with 100:1 Amsoil next time, especially if you let it sit with gas in it over the summer.  I run about 75:1 and have gotten away without gummed up carbs when forgetting to clear the gas from last year - like today.  First day starting the gas auger.  I found out it wasn’t stores empty like I normally do. Took about 10 pulls but she came around and did fine on the lake today.  I WAS annoyed to find gas in it but I have no one to blame but me.
