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.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
