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.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
