Zipcode?????

Recommended Posts

Yesterday after meeting jigglestick out on the lake where we looked around at the various "empty spots" that should be tried him and his little caravan headed out one way and I went the other way. Soon the phone rang and he wanted to know the Zipcode for here???????? My first thought was that he had finally gone fishing one too many days and need a new place to live but he NEEDED TO SET UP HIS SATELITE DISH!!!!!!! shocked.gif What has happened?????? This is the person that used to drag his portable around by hand all night with his headlamp on looking for new places to try and now he is setting up T.V.! What's he gonna do watch fishing shows? Or maybe cartoons seeing as he gave me a new "Mickey Mouse" fishing rod and reel
so I'ld have some better equipment. smile.gif The scary part is that NINETOE is also here this weekend and when he sees that dish he going to be standing there all night with his tin foil hat on yelling "Beam me up".
I really should be nice to jigglestick as he gave me a nice lined shirt with a hood but I think that is a joke too as when I tried it on this morning the hood covers my face and all the buttons go down the middle of my back. frown.gif

Im a Satellite dealer if he has a Directv receiver he needs to point it using a compass I think he can get one at west winds, South at 190 degrees then he needs to set the elevation at about 36, on the screen setup you have a meter which shows you on the tv your signal strengh,it should be 75 signal or higher, move it slow and Have Kelly tell him what it reads then tighten it down. Then both of you can watch tv together channel 606 is the outdoor station with lots of fishing tips they can use. If that doesnt work I have a meter to site it in Ill just tell my wife I have a install up north and throw the rods in and hit the road. I read your posts all the time and get lol you guys are a hoot. Fished Mille lacs New years with the boys one 20" walleye on the mud flat in 22ft, spoke to another guy on the same spot he said they caught over 30 fish early before any traffic, fished east of Garrison Reef. Good luck fishing Walleye Bob

actually it was 185 degrees, and 34 up and down, oops, i just gave away my location shocked.gif
kelly, maybe i'm just getting soft. maybe my portable was just to heavy with fish to pull it around all night. what did you think of the happy channel? she's my friend smile.gif to many more long weekends up there this year and she maybe the only friend i have left! then i'd have to figure out my address out on the lake....0001 crappie lane, upper red lake. trouble is the mail man would never find it.
well putz and moron are all wore out, and heading south as i type. they will be back in a couple weeks. **** putz is a good cook. not bad at catching them big gators too. a 33" and a 37" and two that broke the hooks!i will post fishing results on a seperate topic, so stay tuned.

jigglestick, good job on the setup of your TV. Hows the picture? Now that they know your location you'll just have to move.

fishnutbob,
It wasn't 606 they were watching. grin.gif
jigglestick,
Our plan was the right plan but poorly executed. We either didn't send Labs far enough or we didn't send a good enough fisherman. smile.gif

kelly,you can never send labs far enough away smile.gif.
R.R., sounds like you could use some fishing tips. maybe while were talking and trying to figure out who could give you some i could take you up on that beer smile.gifit should be easier to find some one this year, at least til the bite gets going.

Hey Kelly, A bunch of us are coming up to the Fosters Cabin on the north side at the end of the month. I always look forward to taking their money for first and biggest slab. Ive got 4 full days to relax and catch slabs. Maybe i'll bump into you at the WW. It would be my pleasure to suppliment your dietary intake with a Capt. Coke. Its been great fun readin all the posts on this page. GOOD TIMES Dan

Well, im bringing up the portable, but most likely some of us will use his houses. What do you think, does he put the houses over fish. Biggest slab gets the pot so i need to cover my bets.of course if i loose that bet i can always get my money back playing cribbage

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
    • leech~~
      To bad HSO doesn't have something like this for the Leaders board Top Members contributions. 😕

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!
    • ozzie
      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.
    • Wanderer
      Good job guys!
    • YellowFinRed
      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.
    • Gillraker
      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
