Spearfishing - Where are you now?


Recommended Posts

Just got finished up with all the clean up details after the rain from Joeys grad party. I smoked/slow cooked three fresh hams for pulled pork,13 hrs I baby sat those hams but it was worth every second mmmmm they were good.

I have a pre-op physical today for a surgery a week from today. Not at all ready for this surgery but it will hopefully take the pain away from my shoulder and let me do a few more things.

Muskie entering hole     She came back a while later and was in and out for the last hour of my last sit of the season     Pike sampling a decoy  

I got a DL Smithing spear this weekend. 

Thanks MJ - you too.   I finally got a hole cut yesterday.  No luck while exploring a new lake but at least it got the blood flowing again.   Plus I got to swim the last two Grumpy

Hopefully they are found and someone wasn't low enough to steal from a charity event

Made a point to stop over and check the support our troops event and auction. Wish I hadn't. frown no decoys frown

They now feel that they were indeed pocketed mad it is what it is. But like I said before, it's going to make me much more selective about what I donate items to. Which is very sad, cause I usually don't hesitate to toss items in for charity.

I will get over it, but it stings a bit.

Well look at the bright side. Whoever took them is going to get an automatic pass to hell.

At least you tried.

Went to the Hennipen county fair today, because I saw that Rick Whittier was going to be there. He had a tent set up showing how he carves and paints his decoys. Chatted with him and his wife for a few minutes, and they seem like great people. We were the only ones at his tent at first so I got to take my time test swimming and picking out a few new decoys.

These are the new additions to my collection. Oh and if anyone is interested I believe they are going to be there tomorrow as well. I hope everyone is having a great summer.

Been an expensive weekend... Wrote the check yesterday for a new to me boat since river fishing in the small Jon is going to be difficult this year. It's 17.5' crest liner big, wide, deep. Now I need to get a bow mount and some new batteries. Anyways, it's going to be nice to get back out on big water and chase big pike/ski's again.

With all the rain today the motorcycle ride I promised goose will have to wait, so I been helping her finish up her D.o.t.M. "Perch". She's on her way to NC to see her uncle tomorrow so wants to finish it up today so it is done in June.

We just shot for total numbers of fish since the lake we were on didnt have really big fish to be able to compete in the big 6 category. We ended up with I think 48 fish total, I think first had like 52 or 53 fish.

My find at a flea market today. And I'm glad I found these first because I seen 3 others and these were the best wife started to say see what I see and I was saying yep.. he had marked at 45 I said take 20 he jumped on it.. now it needs a new rivet how do you guys go about doing it..

No picture showed up hillbilly.

f your talking of the rivet in a set of tongs? Use a ballpeen hammer in a vise then lay the flat side on it then hit with another hammer on the other side and that should tighten it up. If you want to replace it FF may carry blank rivets and you will need to fit it then you can use a same /similar method as I just described on the install, and a torch for heating it up may help too.

I am still recuperating from surgery and just got stiches removed on Friday. hope to be up and about soon.

      Bill, you can follow me around for walleyes if I can follow you around for crappies

      Anyone heading to the WFC for the opener this weekend?  I am planning on heading up on Friday morning and hope to find some Crappie on Friday before trying to some Walleye on Saturday.  Last time on the water the temps were only low to mid 40's.  Anyone have any updates on the water temps?  I will be fishing in a Red G3 boat with a Black Talon and Yamaha kicker.  Stop and say hi if you see me, I might be fishing solo this weekend.  I will publish something about my trip Sunday or Monday.  Good Luck Everyone!  Stay safe and Tight Lines!

      Tripp   Always good to see this tread bumped and revived for the spring. Maybe, I run in to you this year on the lake......

      I've seen over 40 boats parked on a small flat on Mille Lacs before.  You can whisper to the boat fishing next to you as long as you aren't running an old loud 2-stroke motor.  Pool 4 in the spring can also be bumper boats and that's even more interesting because there's current.   I'm sure others can comment about how close people come when ice fishing.  The only written law I'm aware of is that you cannot legally fish within 10 feet of another fish house.  If someone is within casting distance of me, that is too close.  That includes recreational boats too.

      Mother Nature gave Minnesotans extra ice-free days this spring on many of the state’s water bodies, but relatively cool weather since then—including overnight lows in the 30s—means the water temperature may be lower than people expect. As anglers prepare to hit the water for Saturday’s fishing opener, it’s vital they keep this in mind and put their safety first. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I realize this is the longest of long shots, but has anyone seen some coolers (one larger blue soft-sided, another smaller gray/blue) floating around Smart's Bay or Northern Hinsdale Saturday morning or perhaps at Timbuktu Marina?   We either left them at Timbuktu Marine, or they flew out of the boat going there in Smarts Bay or Northern Hinsdale.   Thanks
