Just watched the local news and they showed a story of a 52 1/2" muskie that was taken from Bemidji, during 'Take a Kid Fishing' Did anyone else see the story? So busy staring at the monster muskie that didn't catch if it was a kid that caught it and other details...anyone else catch the story? (Just looked in the regs and it shows the record as 54")

Reminder that this weekend is the Walleye Classic on Lake Bemidji. Good luck to all who are heading out there smile.gif

Drake- If you had a chance to read the Pioneer yesterday you would have seen the fish. Paul Nelson hooked the fish and thought that it was a nice fish so he gave it to a girl in his boat. They fought the fish for about 10 min before she got tired. Then Paul took over and landed the fish. THe chamber of commerace in Bemidji is going to mount the fish for her and have it in the Chambers by paul and babe.

Made this girls memories of fishing a good one.

Didn't get the paper, would've loved to see that picture! Fish nearly as big as her?

Have you folks or your dad been able to get out fishing much lately?

Drake- With this crazy weather, we only have been out twice in the last week. Once on Movil and once on Big Bass. Movil was hot last Sunday with three walleyes in 1/2 hour. Some nice sizes and good eaters. Big Bass was an experiment for us. We love across the road from it and have never been on the lake. One little walleye, but saw a couple others caught. It sounds like blackduck is hot. I need to get up there sooon.

Woodman~Never heard of Movil...is that a little place?

Blackduck is going really good right now, they are showing a chance of rain for today, but after that the weather is suppose to be great, especially Monday and Tuesday. We hope to get out there then. Let us know if you plan on heading there and maybe we'll see you on the lake grin.gif

      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.

      Who are these leech and kettle guys going back and forth??? 😉
    • leech~~
      Well just for the Halibut, you could try salmon or Cod! 😆
    • Kettle
      I've heard it you nail them to a board, smoke them, throw away the fish then eat the board they can be good?
    • Kettle
      Alaska lacks the population of walleye that I need to survive

      carp can be fun to catch!!
    • leech~~
      What's wrong with drift fishing if you have some wind? I do it all the time with good results. 👍
    • smurfy
      In my opinion not one that big. Smaller ones if done right are good. But I've had 1 to many bad ones too ever get near a smoked carp again

      I was out alone on Big Sauk Lake on Thursday morning. I brought some leeches and nightcrawlers in search of walleye. I was marking a lot of fish in the 20' - 25' depth range. Some decent sized arches suspended about 10' - 15' down, which I suspected were likely northern pike, and some nice arches near the bottom, which I hoped were walleye. I couldn't seem to connect with any of them and for a while I decided to try shallower to see if there was anything more willing to take.    I moved into about 15' depth and found perch. I could tell they were perch by the way they were nibbling off my bait. At one point they ate everything off my jig up to the hook and l was left with what was on my hook. So, I dropped that over the side and decided to to just let it sit on the bottom to see what happens.   I made myself comfortable and laid my rod across my lap with my hands crossed over it. Yup, I dozed off and in a short time I was awakened when my fishing rod was almost pulled out of my hands! I grabbed my fishing rod and began to fight the fight of a lifetime with a fish! Now, I've caught a few 36" - 40" northern pike and some 25" - 31" walleye and a few 22" - 23" smallmouth on my walleye rigs but never had I experienced a battle like that. I was getting concerned that I would run out of line on my reel a couple times. With my 6# test line it took me about 10 minutes to tire the fish out enough to get it into my landing net. It turned out to be a common carp but what a fun fish to catch! I've never caught one of these before. Lifting it up I estimated it was somewhere between 12 and 15 lbs. I didn't find any regulations about destroying them and learned they are not invasive so I released it.    Are they good smoked?
