D-Man-

Are you coming back to the cities afterwards? I am up for the day for a work fishing tourney 7am - 5pm. I would consider staying if I knew I had a ride home? Let me know.

By the way the launch we went on before the 4th of July was a blast. 9 people, 65 fish, in 4 hours. My 85 year old grandpa caught a 28". It was so fun to watch him real in that beast....

D-man,

Thanks for the heads up on this.... unfortunately I've got to work early on Monday, and can't get off with this late of a notice. It would be a blast though. Next time I'll make it. Good luck to you all, I'm sure you'll do great!!

Good Luck,
Rusty

D-man,

Of course I remember Mike J. It has been too long since I have seen him. Last time he was working at Gander over in Plymouth, three maybe four years ago. I think he is still with Gander? You remember Jeff P, he has some sort of close ties with Mike J, and we talked about him 2 weeks ago when we made a Mille Lacs run. Anyway, enjoy the lake!

PS Remember the Pewee Blaine Hockey Tournament? I was one of two kids on the ice with a stupid green helmet. That didnt stop me from scoring the winning goal in the third place game. Those were the days!

Hey Beefie,

Whatever you do, don't get too close to that launch, and whatever you do, don't drop a buoy next to it or they'll anchor on top of it, right? grin.gif (hah! hah!)

Sorry but your "I'll just go follow the launch in my own boat" comment made my mind go straight back to the "Buoy Hunters" thread(s) - couldn't resist.

Have fun guys and leave a fish or two for me. Oh wait, guess you'll have to leave 'em all - they probably won't be in the slot!

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      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. 😎
    • gimruis
      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).
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      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!
    • Uncle Levi
      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.  
    • Surface Tension
      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.
    • ANYFISH2
      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!😓
    • Wanderer
      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. ☹️
