Enjoying the Summer - A Few Pics

Recommended Posts

Now that work has slowed down I have had more time to get out and do some fishing. Below are pictures from 3 outings in the last 10 days.

I had the opportunity to get both of my brothers on trout streams on seperate outings, their 1st trout of the year.

What a totally awesome 10 days. Knowing you, the highlight of the entire 10 days is watching your younger bros catch their first trout(s) of the season. That's really neat you had the chance to do that. I'm looking forward to fishing with your bros and family this week.

BTW: Nice flattie! It took me over 20+ hours to get my first one, so that's awesome you got yours in the first night ever chasing them. We'll do it again after the spawn is over.

So you guys did find something!

We were up and down the river and caught 4 flats with the largest at 12lbs. Most of the action was early. Pretty tough night.

I couldn't tell exactly when we went by in the dark but you guys should have moved over closer to shore. Looked like you were aways out in the river. I wasn't kidding when I said to throw your anchor on shore. grin.gif

Hanson, this was the only flattie of the evening, but we must have had about 10 other runs. Big runs too. Drag screaming mothers and we let them run forever but to no avail. The only flattie didn't run at all, rather just slam the rod and sit there.

We looked into throwing the anchor up on shore (where you guys were), but there were 2 trees/branches that would have been right behind our boat and every fish (and cast) we tangled with, would have been taken into these branches and maybe snagged up. We tried to move them, but they were burried good. We opted for a different angle. We still casted shallow several times, but our best action was out from shore in the new current seam produced by the fallen tree.

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!
