I went fishing Sunday evening

Recommended Posts

Caught 4 pike in about an hour. The biggest was about 7 pounds. I saw 2 other boats catch fish. They were still working the shallow water (8-10) feet. Their fish were hammerhandles. I fished 15-20 with a perch colored deep diving storm plug. The bigger pike seem to love this plug and the deeper water this time of year. I think I might have had a bigger fish on as well but the hooks pulled out. I had a ball but have been too busy to get out for any length of time. Anyone else got a report. P.S. I released all of my fish.

Hey Erik!
Was that on Green? I've been on vacation since last Thursday the 8th. We went out to Pelican lake by Glenwood. The fishing stunk for the most part, but I did manage to get one walleye about 17 inches. I caught that trolling a storm deep thunderstick in perch color in 19 feet.

On our second to last day (tuesday the 13th) my 7 year old son Jonathan, who has cerebral palsy, started having seizures. We went to the Glenwood ER and from there Jonathan and I took an ambulance ride to Gillette childrens in St. Paul. Jonathan was there a couple of days for tests and such. We are back home and he is fine, but now is on seizure meds which leave him tired....Anyway, didn't want people to think I dropped off the planet. Later.

Mistermom, sorry to hear about your son's misfortune this past week. We all want to take a vacation to escape and it appears your and your son's escape was rather short lived. It's rather difficult to transition from real life issues to fishing but I'll give it a run. I was out on East Twin again. It's three miles from my door so when time is short I go there.

Thanks Erik. Jonathan is pretty much back to his old self again. Meaning that while I'm typing this he's watching "Toy Story". The kid hates to go to bed!

You know a 7lb northern nowadays is a real nice fish. Sad to say but its tough to catch them much bigger than that near the metro. A few years ago a friend of mine caught a 19 lb out of the Rum in a deep hole that's known as "Peterson's hole". Its NW of Cambridge off county road 14. Later.

      Down to 38 in Wake Em Up Narrows this afternoon...when we pulled the plug early in favor of sanity.  Did manage a 27.75”er this morning among a couple of others for our Herculean efforts. ha

      I caught a skinny 33 inch walleye out of red lake back during the crappie boom. I will get the photo as it hit a big airplane jig. I want to get a pike jigging.

      City of Virginia is mandating conversions from steam to gas so all the contractors in town are swamped. Couple more local options Martys heating Malmstrom

      That makes sense.......I think eventually upper red could turn out some 10lb fish. I pretty much figured this was a joke.

      Kelly come on....I live by the Iowa Great Lakes.......and can say the exact same thing you posted. While people may not directly make money from them....money is being spent and brought into the county which was not generated in the county helping the county and people in the county.    I get the "trash issue " no matter what is done people will litter. It will never stop. It needs to be managed, the situation isn't unquie to Upper Red, it's just not managed at upper red like it should be.

      What you are forgetting about is that a very, very small percentage of the people living in Beltrami County make any money from the fishermen on URL. Many of the people making money off the fishermen on URL do not even live in Beltrami County. But ALL residents of Beltrami County have to pay to clean up the garbage left by the fishermen. If a person owns property on the shore of URL how do you suppose they feel about having to continually be picking garbage up off from the beach? If a person lives 10 miles from URL how do you suppose they feel about having to pick up the garbage from the highway ditch in front of their home?

      I never go to the south shore so I'm definitely not an expert but I think this is some type of "contest" where you draw a piece of paper out of a bowl or something like that and the "weight" of your "fish" is written on the paper. A few years back there were Illegal northerns listed in one of JR's "contests" and the CO's looked into it and found that it was just some type drawing.

      The problem is they still need some ballast water on the Great lakes "When the winds of November come early..........."  😉
