Strapped with time before I had to go to work, I had to hit a lake close to home, so I headed to Clear Lake for some stunted crappie and bluegill action...

It started off slow until I applied the Tip of the Month and switched it up to a horizontal jig and a few euro larve. Quickly hooked up with a couple 5-6" gills and few 7" crappies.

All of a sudden I set the hook into a nice fish (odd because I didn't think this lake had any...) after about a two minuet fight this thing came up the hole...

This is the first carp I have heard of being caught through the ice, it completly inhaled the small jig I was using. It was quite the battle on my panfish rod. Anyone else ever have this happen?

Muddog I can point you in the right direction if you would like...

Nice catch riverrat, bet you thought you had a nice eye on! I iced my first dogfish on a tip-up last week and I have never seen one of those through the ice.

Nice story thanks for sharing. That had to p you off when you got it up to the hole. I'm sure you were thinking it was a nice eye or something.

OK, I've played along for awhile, but this HAS GOT TO STOP.

What I'm talking about is all this CHEAP BEER SWILLING in the SC fishing forum.

Good gravy - one less lure purchase a week would allow you to upgrade to something a bit more palatable than this cheap stuff that smells like it has been filtered through my 47 yr old kidneys.

I mean, if you need to drink quantity, I might understand. But there are SO many good beers out there that need to be tried and drank.

I say this will all due love and respect to PDDOG, Grainbelter, RiverRat, et al.

I'm just trying to better my fellow man.

It comes with my profession....

Check youe local liquor store Grain Belt is anything but cheap. If you don't like the taste fine but don't call it cheap cuz it;s as much or more as your run of the mill beers like Miller, Mich, Bud, and all that other mass produced garbage that gives me heartburn and makes me go to the can. I wish it was cheap!!!

Mongo, what do you propose I switch my brew of choice too? Not that I'm open to suggestions or anything, just wondering....

Acctually I was more excited about catching this carp than I was when I iced my personal best 26 3/4" walleye in early December...Odd I know....

So although I have not proved deffinativly to boilerguy that I have caught a fish, he does now have proof that I don't make it rain on every lake I set foot on....

      I would not call a casino an active income, everything is very situational there, it does not depend on you, but on the casino itself, so you need to be very careful about this

      I agree with you. But you will definitely need better components to set up an Rl craft hosting service. First of all, you will need the latest version of Forge. For hosting rlcraft requires these details  .  Furthermore, hosting a server also requires 3 to 4GB of RAM.

      Hei, jeg vil gjerne anbefale deg det beste nettcasinoet: top casino norge. De første tegnene på de beste virtuelle klubbene vises i begynnelsen av spillet eller når du oppretter en konto. Institusjonen skal ha et tiltalende design og brukervennlig grensesnitt. det er mulig at mange nye brukere ikke forstår hvordan de skal trykke på knappene riktig og raskt forlater ressursen. De fremtredende knappene og det intuitive grensesnittet er spesielt viktig.

      On the south end...  Walleyes are starting to stack up in various areas of the south shore with some good fall fishing taking place.  Most anchored up jigging with fatheads and frozen shiners.   Various techniques are still proving effective in catching, but as water temps cool, jigging will be the desire of walleyes and has been successful this past week.   Trolling crankbaits is still catching fish.  If you are struggling catching the fish you are jigging or the fish are spread out, try pulling cranks which will put your lure in front of many fish in which you only need a taker here and there for a successful day. Good numbers of fish are still being caught pulling spinners, especially over flats or on the outside of structure.  On the Rainy River...   Some very good reports on the Rainy River this week.  Shiners are in the river and so are the walleyes.  Is this the big run, not sure, but most are catching fish, and some big ones.   Anglers report nice fish both in Four Mile Bay and the river, but these fish are moving around.  Try different spots until you find them.  Look for clouds of emerald shiners, they show up nicely on most sonar.   This is the fall run and it should only get better.  These river fish are moving, once you find them, it can be a memorable day.  Looking for fish, trying different spots can be helpful in finding fish.  Anchoring up in the same spot all day hoping the fish come through can make for a tough day.     Jigging with a frozen shiner or trolling cranks in the river are both catching walleyes. Sturgeon activity continues to pick up as water cools.  Most fishing the holes of the river.  A 3 - 4 ounce weight with lower current has been sufficient combined with a sturgeon rig loaded with crawlers or crawlers and frozen shiners. Fall is a great time to take your own boat on the small waters of the Rainy River.  Boat ramps scattered from Wheeler's Point to Baudette east to Birchdale.  Up at the NW Angle...  Walleye fishing stays consistently very good up at the Angle.  Walleyes are being caught using the three techniques mentioned above.  Some fishing MN waters, others venturing amongst the Ontario side of the lake.  Good fish being caught on both sides.   In addition to fish still over deep mud, traditional structure is also holding walleyes.  Points, rock islands, sunken islands, neck down areas, etc.   Some nice muskies were caught this week.  October is traditionally a great month with trolling shorelines in the mix of techniques.   The government of Canada has officially announced they are lifting the COVID vaccination requirement and is allowing the ArriveCan app to be optional starting October 1, 2022.  This will make the drive to the NW Angle for many, which includes about 40 miles through Canada, once again possible.
