how did ya do


Recommended Posts

Hit Clearwater this afternoon. No eyes unfortunately, but a limit of 10" craps in 3 hours. Couple of nice schools hung around suspended up 8-12 feet in 35 fow. Nothing on the bottom. Hot bite at 5:45pm. Small jigs/small minnows. Plain hook also did the trick.

5 eyes and 3 northerns on Cedar on Friday and Saturday. 9 northern on Ida on Saturday morning, all about the size of a pan size walleye. Nothing on Sunday except small perch.

Was out on Cedar yesterday afternoon/evening on the north end and didn't catch a thing except for a slight buzz. Almost had the Clam catch fire when my lantern was acting up on me. It must have got really cold in the garage and the gas dial wouldn't work right. First it wouldn't put out any gas and then it after I got it lit it started burning really hot and some flames were coming out of the top and it stunk really bad. Then I went to shut it off and then it wouldn't shut off. If somebody would have seen me they would've got a laught out of it, because I know I would've. Seeing some guy fly out of the his Clam with a flaming lantern in one hand and a beer in the other trying not to tip either of them and not to catch fire to the canvas on the way out. I got a laugh out of it at least if anyone else didn't have the pleasure to see it.
I guess it's crappie time for now for a while.

Yeah that was me in the blue Clam with a Grey Tahoe. I pulled in around 3:30 and the "flash" you saw should've been around 5:30 or so. Were you driving the white silverado or the ford with the green eskimo? I had my door set up facing the other way (facing my truck), so you couldn't have had the pleasure of seeing me juggling the flaming lantern and a beer while trying to get out of the zippered doorway, but you definitely could've seen the "flash of light" after I got out of the house if you were over to the East of me more towards the park. Is this your normal spot that you hammer 'em at Bobberboy?

MG-Fishn' were you out in front of the park? around 3:30? I thought I seen a flash over in that direction last evening.

No actually it's a Coleman lantern. It's never done that before so I'm not sure if it was just really cold or what. If the same problem occurs again I'll have to take a look at it a little closer so we don't burn the Clam down to the ice.

I had the Black Ford. That area around the bar had been very good to me the last couple weeks. My son turned me on to Cedar and suggested that I try that area. As I said I didn't do for #$%& on Sunday but had good fishing there 5 out of 7 times.

I have never fished that area before Sunday but it looked like a prime spot on the map and decided to go for it. Usually when I'm up that way I hit either Sugar or Millstone. I thought I'd try somewhere else for the last day of the season. That cold front that came through last weekend had to have shut them down. Take care Bobberboy and I'm sure I'll see you out there again. If you smell the canvas on the Clam melting next time, that means I probably had some more lantern problems. Come one over with a bucket of water!

MG-Fishin,
How did you do on Sugar? I was out on those mid-lake humps 2 or 3 time and never managed anything more than a few small perch. I also fished about a 1/4 mile from the North landing on the north shore in the first little bay and never seen a thing.

      Water is really low. It’s definitely doable, but there will be a lot of spots you’ll have to get out and pull. Fallen trees in low water might be your biggest obstacle. Should be plenty of smallies to catch. They’ll be concentrated in any deep pools you come across.

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.

      Not too long ago, I found synthesis paper topics here. I may be exaggerating, but this is one of the best topic ideas sites I have found in the last few years.
    • Caleb9
      Satirical essays employ humor, hyperbole, irony and irony to poke fun at a subject. These essays are often directed at celebrities, politicians and current events. Although satirical essays are intended to entertain, the writer of satire often seeks out useful, relevant, and eye-opening information. You can learn how to write satirically by understanding the styles and purpose of your content.   Step 1 Pick a topic. You should choose the  satirical essay topics that is absurd or ironic. Your goal is to make your subject absurd, much like a caricature artist who exaggerates his subject's facial features. To get ideas, you might look at political cartoons in Sunday's paper.   Step 2 Hyperbole can be used to prove your point. Hyperbole can be used to exaggerate facts. However, it does not mean lying. It is important to keep to the facts but to use hyperbole to emphasize the absurdity of them. One example of this might be "Andy Garbo consumes a lot of coffee each year to keep his Folgers stock profitable." Although this is obviously hyperbole, it's meant to convey an exaggerated point regarding Andy.   Step 3 To present your ideas, use irony. Irony refers to the use of words and phrases to express something that is not what you really mean or an incongruity between what the person expects and actually happens. Irony can be expressed as "He's kind enough steal from the poor to help his pocketbook." This becomes ironic when the word "kind enough" is used. Because of its sarcastic tone, irony makes a great tool for satirical essays.   Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous. While not all satire can be funny, pointing out the absurdities of your topic can help you to get people to think differently or make your point faster. Humor is a great way to get people to respond quicker, especially if you make them see the absurdity in the same way as you.   Learn more at: https://proessays.net/blog/40-witty-topics-for-a-satirical-essay

      Has anyone fished the Rum River between Onamia and the Wayside landing around this time of year before? I'm looking to take a trip with the kayak over labor day, but wanted to make that stretch would be deep enough to float (I'm ok with occasionally dragging the kayak, but I don't want to take my girlfriend on a 9 mile hike in ankle deep water), and that there'd be a realistic chance to hook into some good smallies. I will be doing strictly catch and release, I just want to get out and have some topwater fun. I had heard from some that the stretch of river in question may be better in June, so I wasn't for sure.    If that stretch of river is no good, is there another that you'd recommend?   I appreciate any help.

      On the south end...  Walleye fishing has been good all summer and is still strong.  Lots of limits of walleyes along with some big fish being caught.  Lake levels continue to drop thankfully.  Boat ramps are open and charters / guides continue to be on fish. Drifting spinners still producing.  Hammered gold, pink, orange, glow white, glow red or a combo of some of these colors working well.  Usually a two or three hook harness with just a few inches of crawler off of the back hook.  Good success jigging for walleyes.  This technique usually slows down in August, but this year it is still working great.  Using a frozen emerald shiner is the go to. Big walleyes being found, as a rule, over deep mud.  Jigging, spinners and crankbaits are all catching the big fish.   Nice eaters still set up in 15-20' outside both gaps on the south end of the lake as well as numerous areas of Big Traverse Bay.   Lots of anglers running north if conditions allow.   On the Rainy River...   Some good walleye, sturgeon and smallmouth bass reports from the Rainy River.  Water levels continue to drop.   Shoreline breaks, current breaks, weed edges and holes holding a mixed bag. Sturgeon anglers are reporting good numbers of fish.  Putting in a couple of days normally results in some success.  Holes and flats or saddles just off of the current good areas to look at. Up at the NW Angle...  Lots of walleyes along with a mixed bag is the norm.  Some anglers fishing MN waters, others boating into Ontario waters from the Angle and fishing there.  Good reports across the board. Angle resorts are located in MN right on the border.  Checking in with Canada Customs and being vaccinated is not needed if boating from the U.S. to Canada and not touching land, docks, anchoring, mooring or exchanging goods or services.   Little Traverse Bay (large open water east of Little Oak Island) still holding good numbers of walleyes over deep mud. Typical summer spots are producing.  Sunken islands, neck down areas with moving water and points.  With 14,552 islands, lots of places to fish. Muskie anglers reporting fish have been active with good numbers being caught. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air (fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      I have been out four times this season since mid July.  I caught some smaller ones the first couple trips, but Saturday I finally got into some larger fish with my Father.  The bigger ones are tiger muskies in the mid 30 inch range.  I had another one on that made these look small.  We got a good look at it when it surfaced and spit the hook with a head shake.  Appeared to be 45+ inches, which is enormous for a hybrid.

      I saw a fair amount of wood ducks and teal in the Rum River a couple weeks ago when I was floating it for smallmouth bass.  More so than usual.   I hear ya on the ducks though.  There just isn't nearly as many as there used to be, which is why I stopped hunting them.  Hard to justify the time investment and scouting that is required when it only produces a few ducks per season.  I used to harvest about 35/season just 10 years ago too.
