I'm getting all worked up in that stinking netting thread, thought I'd try something different. Anyone been out on the water? Catching any? Whacha ya catching?
I haven't been out for a while, but I'm hoping to get out with Snoman tomorrow. Anyone else want in?

Snoman and I fished a trib of the Red last night and had a good time. Found some goldeye and catfish after a little snooping, but overall it was somewhat slow. Marked fish most of the night, but couldn't talk most into biting.
Beautiful night and good to get out. I was getting housatosis pretty bad.
Only a couple more months until the spring run here locally. Yehaa, I can't wait.

Ah...the allusive Goldeye. They hang around all night feeding, picking may be a better word for it. They can be as fussy or more so then any crappie or perch in my opinion. Ya, they can drive ya NUTS! They do love Gold AI's though Scoot, that is their weekness. wink.gif

The new Aqua-Vu SV-60 I am field Testing has shown me many looker fish I thought were walleye, are really sumo fresh water drum.

Drowsy Drum that appear to be on sedatives, you can bounce a jig off their heads and they STILL won't wake up. Ah..What...Huh...Ah...What was that?

Even in the clear water I have not seen a big bite after dark for walleye, I find that odd too? The dawn to 10 and 3-7 bite is about it for me recently. When the walleye are there, you get them to hit pretty easily. If they are not roaming much, dead sea all the way.

Good news, warmer weather on the way this week...Yip...Yip!

I will be out look'n, see what I can see, and catch.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      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

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      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.
