Got a spare gas can?

Recommended Posts

This was going to be my post Sat. night.

See if any had a spare can and could deliver us a couple gallons to the river.

Oh our location?

It's 10 pm, Sat night and we're sitting approx. under the Lake St. bridge.

You would think having 2 - 30 gal tanks you occasionally check the levels....

Well, my buddy called his teenage daughter to grab two gas cans from their garage and fill 'em up and bring them to beach just south of the bridge.

Well needless to say she didn't like the idea of driving alone to South Mpls. Then she forgot one of the cans, and didn't fill up the other.

When he met her at the top of the hill she wasn't very excited about being there. But then she had to drive to the SA on Lake St. To fill up the one can and bought another. This way we could get 7 gals into the boat and have enough to keep fishing all night. I guess he had some fun trying to carry two cans and a flashlight coming down the hill from street level in that area.

Never know what goes bump in the night, down on the river bottoms.

Actually had one guy partially attempt to jump into the boat as we were trolling by. I was in the rear and heard something in the brush, all of a sudden had a guy jump out and just miss the back of the motor and land in the water... eek That was before dark.

Haha, I have a whole years worth of weird P2 stories, from just a handful of trips over there this summer.

Sounds like that guys timing was a bit off. When they jump in my boat on pool 1 they normally nut the landing on the 1st try... grin

Then again I'm usually in the 1.2 MPH range which is slower than most troll on pool 1...LOL!

Wow - that is crazy, well now you have an excuse to buy planer boards and get away from the shoreline where weirdos try to jump in.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
