Red report and a brush with a fellow fisherman

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hey Scoot-
I saw your brothers post that you guys bought a boat. I own the same boat, but mine is a '99. I beat my boat to death on Leech at the tournament this past weekend. I think you'll be very happy with it and you got a good deal. I'll keep my eyes open and see if I ever run into you with that rig.

I have been getting into the river fishing thing too and I am going to buy a duck/river boat tomorrow night. I'm buying it from a fellow FishingMN forum'er too. I'm pretty pumped because I can't take my big boat on the Red, and I really want to get into this catfishing thing. I like fishing from a boat than from the shore any day.
If your ever looking for fishing company, let me know.

Hay Scoot it was very cool to bump into you and Rod last night.

Nice to put a face to a name, and I hope my face was not too scary.

I was a bit tiered last night from a long week and was pumped for a few days off to relax and fish. I do want to hit the river with you soon, or later, or both.

Then there is today........

Due to the events of today I spent most of the day in shock while trying to sort out my emotions and make some kind of cents of this world we live in. So far I have not gained any ground in my search.

I always fail to estimate correctly mans ability to be cruel to his fellow man. I am heart sick for the many who suffer from the events that have past today.

I am now just emotionally numb, I feel the need for a river to heal me, if only temporarily.

What a tragic day!

I fished the north dam last night and was totally shut out. Had one bite and lost it before I got a good look at it. Word is the fish are starting to go a little bit on the river, but my luck stayed consistent. I retain the title "black cloud".
However, after a couple of years of chatting with him online, I finally met Backwater Eddie. I gave him a handshake and BS'd him for a while- it was good to meet him. That's one thing about this forum, you meet a lot of people who you never know where or when you might bump into them in the real world- it's pretty cool. Thanks for the info and the conversation, Ed, I enjoyed it. I was serious about the offer regarding goose hunting and I would happily team up with you if you ever need a fishing partner. After today or tomorrow I might even have a new boat (new to us at least) to fish out of- pretty pumped about it!

Sorry no pic's, I was alone and my camera was in the boat anyway. I guess you just need to take my word for it.

More were they came from, maybe next time?

Piggy's all look alike anyway.

Ed,

Thanks for the report- I'll try to check it out as soon as my schedule allows.
I spoke to my dad about the rehandling of your rod- no problem. If you need a quick turnaround (maybe a couple of days) we'll have to do a little planning because he's been really busy with "stuff". If there's no big rush I can take it whenever and get it back to you in a week or two.
Let me know.

Cool Thank's Scoot.

It is no mad rush deal for me but I would like to get it to you soon so he can have it on hand when he finds time to fix my piggy stick. I would like to have it if possable before I go to Canada in mid October hunting a SUMO greenbackius piggyus-a-souris's.

Rod really does some VERY nice work on rods! (no pun intended)

I would trust any of his creations on a world record fish any day!

Thank's again Scoot!

ED

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.
    • delcecchi
      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.
