This particular forum is usually plenty active. . .Kind of dead lately.

Anything going on? I'm thinking about maybe spending part of the day on Sunday rootin' around on the OT by Orwell.

Scoot, Rockin' Rod-interested? It's not a sure thing, but it's something to consider.

I'm going fishing on Sun. Not sure where yet. Maybe we can meet up. Give me and Rod a call on Sat and we'll formulate a plan of some sort.

Sounds good. We're going school shopping tomorrow in Albertville, so I should have lots of time to call you.

What are your thoughts as to where you were thinking about fishing?

Rod and D were talking about sklunge fishing at Big D, but I could be swayed into other options too. If that's the option we choose, we'd have to split up into two boats, which would be fine. I've got two other buddies who called and wanted to fish this weekend too. Story of my summer- tons of people who want to fish, and less time than ever to get out and fish.

Scoot, Remember any evening you want to fish just give me a call a day or two ahead so we can watch the weather. Open end invite. I'm going tonight so I'll post on what the fishing is like on the mighty Red.

Put it this way, I'm not sure what I'm doing. Go ahead and make plans if you'd like to. If it works for us to hook up and fish, great.

I've talked to a few people about Big D. (Just last week, a beginning 'sklunger from Perham caught some high 30's and low 40's skis.)

I'll get a hold of you.

Scoot, what's up? If you plan on coming out to Big D, give me a heads up. My wife will be leaving around 2pm on Sunday with the kids until Wed. night. We can meet out on the water and work some areas with two boats. Hope to hear from you.

Peter,

I didn't check the board over the weekend. However, it wouldn't have mattered much- I didn't get out and fish at all either. My plan is to go out tomorrow evening. See ya out on the water? I think my bro, a buddy and I will be in our boat- I'm sure you'll see us out there at the usual spots.

      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.

      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 🙂

      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.
