Opening weekend sounds

13 posts in this topic

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

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 sound of several $20 slipping out of my wallet and into the gas clerks hands frown.gif

- 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.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

        Ya, I Was corrected already. Sorry.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
