Fishing updates a/o 5/20??


Recommended Posts

I am as excited as a kid on Xmas eve. I will be arriving up there in God's country Thursday morning. I am looking for the latest on the walleye and crappie bite. I have read the posts and it seems Blackduck is picking up. I am wonering, though, what is the preferred setup for crappie on Red and what are people fishing? Shoreline structure? Submerged fishing structures?
Looking forward to any help to these questions.

I can't wait!!!

Erik~Got Paul standing right here while I do this post as he was out on URL yesterday...there is really no structure on URL. Right now folks are basically fishing depths...around 5 - 7 feet, bobber fishing down 3' with a minnow on a plain hook.

We haven't been out on Blackduck the last couple of days, but are hoping to hit it later today. We'll do a post later to let you know smile.gif

Hey Erik, Drake is right about the structure. There is hardly none. This time of year you want to be in the shallower water. 8 - 3 feet deep. There is a few breaks in depth but not many. I know of a few spots where the shoreline drops from 4 to 8 feet real quick, but thats about it. I use the same jigs for ice fishing as for summer fishing. I get a lot more bites this way.
Good luck.

Hey Erik~We were out on Upper Red this morning from 9 until around 12:30..with the way the wind was coming out of the south, we weren't sure if we would be able to fish or not, but it wasn't too bad.

We were in around 6 to 7 feet of water, bobber fishing around 3 to 3 1/2 feet down. Some used plain hooks with minnows, others used jigs and minnows. We got around 20 crappies between the two of us, Paul and his folks latched onto 27 and a couple other folks who were out with us got 25. The largest of the crappies was 1.3, with many coming across the scale at 1.1. You will HAVE to ask Paul (PWaldo123) who had the largest fish grin.gif

Here is a picture of just a "few" of the fish that were caught today.

See you tomorrow!

All right already!!! I will concede biggest fish to you grin.gif

After spending 2 days on URL chasing crappies here's what I found. I had my parents with me and as they were having a blast catching fish, I ran the net and helped bait lines while managing to squeeze in a little fishing. I tried several types of jigs and here's the results:

White jig head with a spinner:
1 crappie and 4 whitefish
yellow flu flu:
nada
red flu flu:
nada
red whistler jig:
2 crappies

By far our most productive method was a plain hook with a crappie minnow suspended 3 1/2 feet beneath a wave buster bobber. The wind over the last few days brutal and these bobbers out performed all others.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I'm sure if you weren't busy with all the fish your mom was bringing in and helping your whitefish king dad you would've been able to catch one that could've tied mine!

All my fish were caught with a brownish/red jig, the other half of the team used plain hook for a while, and then a yellow jig, all with crappie minnows. But I will conceed that he did catch more fish than me and the majority he caught were with the yellow jig. Again, we were also about 3 1/2 feet down.

Paul~Erik will probably be giving you a call. They got their limit of walleyes on Winni today, but said the wind was something to contend with! They cleaned and cooked their fish and he stopped in after their fresh fish dinner...don't think he's going out tonight, great dinner and they were just going to relax!

      I’ve only seen teal one morning on the river.  Absolutely nothing in all the evenings I’ve been out.  Hard to get excited about hunting around home. 😒

      Public Administration in any sphere is a complicated process. In public service, there is a high level of responsibility. Every decision may affect large groups of people. There are many challenging points in Public Administration in public service. For example, public administration servants might face a lack of clarity or conflict regarding goals. Public Administration is difficult when there are numerous parties involved. Public Administration essay in public service should also be as objective as possible. There are voting sessions in various committees that help reach the objectiveness. However, if a suggestion gets 50% of votes among street-level bureaucrats, how should this be interpreted? Is a minor preponderance of votes enough to accept a proposal? The sphere implies a focus on societal needs. Sometimes the needs of the target population differ from the common societal ones. In such cases, public administration specialists need to find a balance between those interests. Bureaucrats at street level need to take into consideration many factors. In some cases, it might be challenging to figure out what to do. It is especially true if the decision regards a long-term perspective. Any public service organization has an established pattern for effective decision-making. Such models might involve many formalities. As a result, the process might be extremely time-consuming. https://proessays.net/essays/category/public-administration Related Resources: https://renkulab.io/gitlab/-/snippets/2871 https://www.ridesharetalks.com/?qa=356716/economics-essay-example https://gitlab.syntra-limburg.be/-/snippets/1240 https://forum.making-stories.com/d/296-government-essay-examples

      The essay for international exams such as SAT, GRE, GMAT, TOEFL and IELTS does not require literary talent, but rather a mastery of the technology of its writing.   Almost any international test for admission to a foreign university contains a section devoted to writing an essay. Is homework market legit? There is a general approach to essay writing for standardized tests, which includes five main steps.   DETERMINING THE TYPE OF ESSAY First, you need to determine what type of essay you are required to write. Standardized tests more often ask you to write a "problem essay," when you need to present an opinion on a given problem, and an "argumentative essay," when you need to analyze the arguments presented against or in defense of a particular point of view.   DETERMINING THE LENGTH OF AN ESSAY The length of the text affects the complexity of the essay, the number of paragraphs. A basic three-paragraph essay consists of 300-500 words. It is referred to as a "short" essay in standardized tests. A "long" essay is a minimum of 500-800 words and consists of five paragraphs.   Each paragraph should contain at least three sentences. It is important to understand that it is not the length of the typed text that is assessed, but the structure and content of the essay.   FORMULATION OF THE MAIN IDEA, THESIS AND ARGUMENTS The main idea is what the essay is about. The thesis is what the author thinks about the main idea of the essay. Arguments are logical statements in support of the author's thesis. Each of these elements should consist of at least one sentence.   If you put these elements in order, you will get an introduction. You can use the wording from the text of the assignment as the main idea.   If the text of the assignment is formulated as a question, in most cases, the thesis should be formulated as an answer to the question posed.   STATEMENT OF THE MAIN BODY OF THE ESSAY In an essay of up to three thousand words, one paragraph each is allocated for the introduction and conclusion. The rest of the essay consists of the main body. For example, in an essay of five paragraphs, the main part should consist of three paragraphs, i.e. one paragraph for each argument.   In a three-paragraph essay, only one paragraph remains to present all three arguments, which makes it even more difficult to write. After a brief outline of the main body, one introductory sentence should be written for each paragraph.     The introductory sentences tell the reader what the paragraph is about. This is followed by arguments that justify the essence of the introductory sentence and examples (a quote or a life case). The introductory sentence, argument, and example together make up one paragraph in the main body.   Since the arguments have already been presented in the introduction, there is no need to use semantic transitions in the main body - all that remains is to set them out in the order in which they are presented in the introduction.   CONCLUSION The conclusion is usually the most difficult part of the essay. The conclusion should include a paraphrase of the thesis in light of what was said in the main body, i.e., an explanation of how the arguments support the thesis put forward, and a final sentence that draws a line under the main idea of the essay.   The clearer and more definite the thesis statement is, the easier it is to write the conclusion. Difficulties in writing the conclusion means that most likely the thesis statement is too unclear. In this case, you can try to rewrite the introduction and then go back to the conclusion.   GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS The main recommendation for writing essays for standardized tests is to quickly sketch out an initial version of the essay. If you run out of time, at least you will have a finished, albeit imperfect, product.   In any case, a finished essay is always graded higher than an unfinished one. If you have some time left, however, you can easily improve the essay with small changes.   Resources: How to write an essay What are essays Essay structure, writing style. What is an essay?

      Several months ago, it was challenging for me to find at least 6 hours to sleep. Students most probably know that feeling: professors just don’t care. But after I found Proessays, things changed. I can entrust completing papers to them and have my life back. At last!

      In a guide to writing sociology papers, the Sociology Writing Group identifies four types of papers that are based on data sources as the most common writing assignments given to undergraduate sociology majors: (1) The textual analysis paper in which the student has to analyze a text like an essay or book. The text provides the data, and the student is not asked to interpret the text. (2) The ethnographic field research paper in which data are generated by observing and interacting with people in their social environment. (3) The quantitative research paper in which data are collected using specific methods of data analysis and collection in order to answer a sociological question. (4) The general research paper in which data are collected through library research to refine a question and gather information to support the paper's thesis.
