yeah, it was a fun trip although the fishing was a little slow. sam is a great guy and it was great to get to know him and brian graff a little better. i tell you, those guys have some great stories to tell around a campfire. Me and Porter will also be on Minnesota bound at the beginning of June, we shot a steelhead show this spring and it should be a good one, we got a lot of fish on tape.

You guys deserve it, the way you've been hitting it since I met you, congrats! Looking forword to the MN Bound, please post when that show will air. Many of us will watch.

And to think only a couple short years ago IllTakeWhatICanGet was a bottle of Old #7.

Once again, you guys deserve it ( still how did QS get a 1" x 1" photo & Porter get center stage??? grin.gif )

Excellent work from Sam, as always. Also doesn't hurt to have two relentless young fishermen to write about. grin.gif

Way to go guys. Looks like a fun trip. It was a good read especially the part that made you guys hero's. I have had to make the same frantic paddle toward someone else's rig. Keeps you on your toes.

I was tryin, but they must have photoshopped it out. I'm surprised you recognized me without the chest hair, it seems like lately you've been pretty fixated on my chest blush.gif

It was a great trip, even though the weather didn't totally cooperate. Gotta take what mother nature gives ya though, and we had a lot of fun despite the wind. The Minnesota Bound episode kent mentioned should be airing on June 2 at 8:30 am on channel 9- as far as they can tell me at this point. If anything changes we'll keep you posted. They got a lot of good footage, so it'll be cool to see what they did with it. Bill, the producer we filmed with, said it came together really well so it should be fun to watch...

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.

      Pulled my house a couple of days ago, but there are still a few fish biting at some spots. Very slow for me! Good roads out there yet as we plowed them after the last snow. Cliff

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
