Scouting Paid Off


Fisherman For a Lifetime

Recommended Posts

Yep, enough shantytown. Four trips there and not even one fish was probably one of the worst streaks I've ever had in 40 years. Time to get out of the mold and go scouting.

Went to a place that was within eye shot, but not earshot. No one was there - perfect. Set-up in 36 feet.

First Crappie was at 3pm and was a 13 inch'r. Some good action after that up until 5:30, left at 6. Ended up keeping one for dinner tomorrow night.

Pays to get away from the crowd!

Did the YMCA flats today moved around quite a bit.Hit the edges in side corners points. Didn'T fish the 21 ft depth though, mainly from 26ft to 35ft. Had few bobbers go down but they only would grab the minnow. Had one that took off on me no way of stopping it. Must have been a sturgeon was to strong for 8 # took out half of my line when it rolled, all she wrote after that. Man that was fun!

Not a good weekend yesterday dulled the blades on the nils and today transducer cord got cut. Bright side I will have 2 blades for the Nils and a new transducer.

Maybe tuesday be back out there to hit the 21 ft if its to cold to work. Sneaky suspicion their sitin on top. When we sat at 28ft we marked fish at 25 ft heading down to minnow.

Hey Croixflats i saw you from the 94 bridge out there all by your lonesome. You drive a car out there right? At least i think it was a car. If not it must have been someone else. Sounds like at least you had some action. More than i could say for this last sunday.

I drove the four wheeler out being I live a block off the river yesterday. If it was today that was a buddy of mine. He had no luck today except when he moved down to Afton and that was only two small walleyes and a small sauger. He drives an S-10 beater.

Looks lik Wendsday I'll be going out. Didnt have time to get a ducer today. So tomorrow get the ducer and weld up a rigid hitch for the sled.

I haven't had too much luck as of late besides the one 17" I caught last week. The evening bite that I depend on so much hasn't been that good lately. I will keep you posted.
