Man this weather sucks. I finally get to come up and fish and the weather stinks. I thought it was opener again.

I need the sun to come out so I can catch some crappies.

I actually cought one in 20' of water walleye fishing with a shiner.

most of the walleyes that I say cought were in 25' and on live bait other than minnows.

the other one was in 6' on a shiner.

This is as slow as I've seen it. I might have to bass fish this comming weekend, because I cought more bass walleyfishing than I did walleyes.

39 when I headed out this morning.

About the only benefit to it being cool is that a bag of ice in the beer cooler lasts all weekend.

Don't like to whine but this is the crummiest spring I can ever remember.Here it is the bass opener and once again we have gale force winds and rain.Thought maybe by not camping for the first time in recent memory for Memorial Day we might be blessed with some half***ed weather but nnnnnooooooo,same old **** .Really sucks for the workin man who has to narrow his chances down to weekends on top of it!There I feel better...I think...maybe. smile.gif

I'm with the beer guy as far as good things when the weather is this bad, absolutely terrible.

I fished last Thursday and a week ago Tuesday when the whether was nice for two days in a row. And the fish was good.

I was expecting to get out a lot the last two weekends and catch a bunch of fish but this weather is just a bummer.

Sun please shine, please, pretty please.

As awful as the weather was, 4 of us got out on an area lake for about an hour and a half on Saturday night (until the lightning arrived) & we had maybe the best fishing we've ever had. In pursuit of bass, we totalled 40-some bass (4 over 4 pounds & one of about 5.5 lbs) + 5 walleyes (between 16"-20") and a couple of slab crappies... all in the same spot! I think (& hope) that this is the result of so many people practicing "catch & release" with the bass. I wish it were law to release them everywhere, but to those who are already doing it... THANK YOU!

      Awesome...Always was wondering what happened to him on here.  Sounds like the crappies are on fire back home and here I'm working day 9 straight

      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!

      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.
