#3 Perch - pink squirrel

This fight was ridiculous. Felt a hit so I set the hook. Buddy asks 'whatcha got on...gotta pike on?' I responded 'pretty sure, diving pretty good'. We saw the northern flash on top of the water, then to my surprise I pull this little perch up. He was bleeding out of a puncture wound on either side of his tail.

Funny to think that catching this fish probably saved his life...you're welcome little buddy, thanks for playin!

Not an additional species, but like to observe the color differentials between spring male brook (above) and female brook (below).

I still can't believe that rock bass unhooked himself and snuck between the boards in the dock before you could snap a pic... oh well.

The crappies sure are pretty this time of year.

Looks like a fun mini trip so far.

Haha, thanks guys. I took the week off work, and have been travelling with my fly rods...rough I know.

Ich and Turtle, I was wishing I had you guys' contact info this morning as I was in the Winona area - Check out the pics from today's trip on the Root.

16" Brown Trout caught on a custom pink squirrel. I caught Brown and Brook trout with this all day long today, I'll post a recipe soon.

Did you attach the wrong image? That is a brown trout for sure.

It's too bad we didn't know you were down today. MNFishHunter and I went out and caught trout, smallies, and rock bass today. Good times. You'll have to give us a heads up next time your coming down.

The top one is a brown for sure, you think the bottom one is too? Maybe its the light...there were definate halos around those lower spots.

I might be down there with Slab this weekend. We should party.

Yeah, I'm 100% sure it's just a brown. Bummer though!

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!
    • delcecchi
      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.
