Has this ever happen to you? Me and my fishing buddy were fishing the north end last week during the day. We were slip bobber fishing. We had just said something to the fact that we had not got a double when both bobbers went down. The point to the story is we both caught the same walleye(a 24"). Its not like we were fishing next to each other, we were about 25ft. apart. Neither was snaged.

I have only had that happen once in my life, and it will probably be the only time. Only I was Ice fishing about ten feet away from my buddy. We had a hard time deciding who should let out the slack so that the other could reel it in. The interesting thing is that I was also on Mille lacs when it happened.

How 'bout the other way around? One line with two fish on? My daughter was working a plastic worm with a hook in the head and a hook in the tail (fishing from shore on a little pond just outside of Bismark, ND). She had reeled a bass about half way in when all of a sudden the drag just began to sing. I tightened it up a little and she pulled in two bass on the same worm.

This is a very "timely" thread for me. We hit Mille Lacs on Saturday. We witnessed a boat get what appeared to be a double on Saturday. The two fish turned out to be 1 fish when it got to the surface. It had taken both leeches in one pass. We marveled at that and commented how hungry the fish must be.

Then, a little while later - we had the same thing happen in our boat. So we ended up seeing this twice in one day!!

I saw this two weeks ago while bobber fishing. One fish took my crawler and then took a leech 4 feet away. We set the lines thinking a double and it was one fish. We laughed our butts off.

This happened last Friday morning. But me and buddy are still argueing over who's fish it was. I set the hook first so I think it was mine. Just kidding, but it was a nice 24" fish.

I've had both those things happen to me.

While fishing Mille Lacs two weeks ago my brother-in-law and I set the fish on a double. Turned out to be the same fish. Since we are both rather competitive, we are still arguing over who should get credit for boating the fish.

Three years ago while trolling a crawler harness on Curlys, I felt a tap so I gave it some line and set the hook. On the first hook was a small perch and on the second hook was a small walleye. Since I was fishing alone, I dropped it into my live well and headed to shore to show my wife. I thought it was pretty neat and she just said "That's nice" and went back to her sun tanning.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?

      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. 😎

      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).

      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓

      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️
