how much rain?

10 posts in this topic

Hey Jon P. I was passing through Waskish late Monday night on my way to the east coast and man was it raining. A few times I had to slow down to about 40-45 mph and with that new blacktop it was hard to see. Just curious on how much rain fell that night. Hope all is well! B-dude

As normal it rained like heck to the south of us and to the north of us with little here. In Waskish proper I had 1/2" in the rain gauge the second night of rain...after we patched the hole in the rain gauge. It was one of those short lived heavy showers.

We finally got a good shot of rain today. 70 and 80% percent chances produced nothing but todays 90% chance finally delivered. grin.gif From May to Sept 06 we were 11 inches below normal, no real snow all winter and a dry spring so mud puddles are nice to see.

Jon was out fishing through it, hope he had a rain coat. hehehehe

I'm not sure of the amount of rain but I know one thing the carpet in the boat is really clean!

Had a nice weekend, minus the rain on Saturday.

It was fun visiting with your family.

Was hoping to see your boat, but appreciated you honesty that the weekend was poor after the storm.

Here is some pictures at Red on the river, but all 17" and up.

We did have luck for a few hours at Blackduck on Monday.

It is starting to pick up a little but that is thick as chocolate milk. Just a few calm days would be nice...heck even one would be good.

the wind is supposed to be decent the rest of the week. what are the odds it will clear up enough to help the bite?.

It is going to help, that is for sure. What would really clear the lake up is calm weather and a good rain mixed in. Why the rain clears that lake so fast is way beyond my little brain but it does.

The old rule of thumb was one day of wind is good for two days of slower fishing...we are on day fifteen straight with winds and rollers coming from one direction or another.

Been picking up crappies every day along with the walleyes half of them havent spawned yet. Strong wind every day makes ancoring the best way to fish.

      I would say Pike fishing got noticeably worse after the first year of spearing.  Used to catch lots of big pike while musky fishing..  I didn't catch a single one last year.  Makes me sad and angry, to be honest.

      The taxidermist won't know how to mount a fish of this size A true trophy of a life time.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.
