While trolling for northerns last weekend on Mitchell Lake, I thought I had hooked some weeds. I reeled in the crank bait to find a bobber and some fishing line. After pulling in about 30 feet of line I came to the jiggle stick it was still attached to. It's still in the boat if anyone wants it and can describe it to me.

p.s. The jiggle stick was the longest thing caught all morning. frown.gif

A cow... Actually the guy I was with did. Was fishing in a small bay of the main lake that just stunk bad. The guy I was with was tossing a spoon when he set it on something and after some tugging and pulling a decaying cow popped to the surface. We cut the line and did a long distance release.

My 7 YO brother let out all the line in his pole while trolling and the line thatcame with wasnt tied on. I was mad at him and beacuse it was nicer line too.

We go out sunny fishing 4 hours later and my granpa gets all mad cuz we were vertical fishing and he caught one of of lines. He start pulling and pulling it up expecting to see our rods bend. He keeps going andgoing until the same exact lure hewas trolling with pops up into our boat. What are the chances of that?

While fly-fishing in Mexico, I was just learing how to double haul and on one of my false casts, my line went tight in my hand and I heard a muffled "YOW!". I turned around to see my fly in my guides leg......needless to say I didn't live that one down for the rest of the trip.

I caught a bat throwing a tiny toredo in the river. Not sure if he thought it was something he could eat and hit it during cast or if I just smacked him midair. Since it was getting dark I wasn't sure why the lure was reeling in funny. Sure was suprised to see the bat hooked. I have a pic but it's not digital and no scanner.

My brother set the hook on what he thought was a huge fish that took him about 10 minutes to land.....turned out to be a drift sock.

Weirdest Catch or Funniest laugh of a catch!!

yeap, I did catch a bat

Seen a guy catch a flycatcher bird

My buddy caught what he thought was big catfish, but I saw it all - a pelican.

My uncle caught a duck

My nephew caught a loon

My brother in law tried catching wild turkey with a tandem spinner bait???? - yeah right, I got angry at him for purposely trying to snag the bird. Except for this one, all of the other ones are just way too funny.

I hooked a guy's face one time. I was in my boat casting and a boat full of other guys had come withing about 30 feet of me on a lake that was otherwise practically empty of people. I think they saw me catching fish and came over quietly with a trolling motor.

I muffed a back cast with my plug and it hit the guy in the face.

A railroad tie...a stacked carburator, and a cooking pot that had holes in it, boy did that thing fight hard.

My older brother caught me. I put up one heckuva fight. One hospital trip and a bunch of stitches later, I beat him up.

Casting near rock dock on Lake Waconia... caught myself a Gull. Wrapped worm,weight, and line around a leg. Didn't really notice at first as I was talking to buddy in back of boat & all the sudden I feel my line moving up and away to my right... Strangest thing to look up and see a bird flying away with your line. I slowly realed her in and (not without a fuss and some feathers lost) untangled the line and set her free... Crazy time in a small boat. Also, about a 30 plus pound snapping turtle on a texas rigged lizard on Waverly... I thought I had the state record bass for a second: (I cut the line). Another one... Not really a catch though... I was casting a frog near some pads (different lake) and just SMOKED a Swallow in flight... I think I either knocked it out cold and it drowned or I just killed it with the impact. THAT was weird as the impact was probably lest than 5 yards from the boat and obviously completely unexpected... You just can't make this kind of stuff up.............. grin.gif

      Thank for the update and photo Dave and Diane! Cliff

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.
    • Horseshoe_Don
      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
