Recommended Posts

Grabs

Well who is interested in a launch trip for Saturday night. The subject came up about getting our wifes and significant others out fishing with us. And many feel this is a great way to do it. So how many are interested, if there is enough interest I will set something up and get the information posted here so everyone can make a reservation ASAP.

So whose in?

I would love to, but I've got a wedding Saturday frown.gif It would be a lot of fun. Would anyone be interested in a launch sometime around August 10th (sat.) or 11th (sun.)? If there's people interested we could set one up, plus that way it's far enough in advance that people can schedule around it.

Good Luck,
Rusty

Hey Grabs,
Sounds like a great idea, I bet my fiance would go on a trip like that. You might even get Andy with two O's and his significant other on a launch. But I'm not free on a Saturday until the 17th of August. If you guys do it this weekend, let's also try to plan something farther out too, cause I think it's a great idea.

It's all just theory till you hit the water.

Hi Grabs, saw in another post you did, you were talking about Lake minnewaska, is that by Alexandria?
just curious what you meant by Bull bluegills?
Are you saying they are huge/
How big?
Is it worth the hour drive for me and my wife?
I can catch alot of blue gills around here, many 6-7", how do these bulls compare?

also,, I have never been to this lake, is there any info on the lake on the net, like where the boat launch is, is it concrete?
not sure how big this lake is, so I'm not sure if I could get my speed boat in there,
where abouts and what depth are you catching the big ones.

thanks alot in advance!!

Dano, call me and/or e-mail me, it is just a lot easier to explain over the phone or in an e-mail. ScottS may be of assistance too.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.

      yep, lotta lead on the sippi from this guy. LOL  sometimes I do a simple drop shot setup. tie a #4 hook on and leave about a foot or less of line. then just pinch the split shot on bottom and jig away. didnt have to tie on so many hooks.  
    • MinnowBuckets
      Nice report! Glad to see there are others still getting out on the river too. I need to get simpler in my presentation and use the fathead/split shot technique more often. I can’t afford to lose 3 swimbaits or rapalas each time out. 😭
    • eyeguy 54
      dont talk yourself out of it. might hit a couple spots again this coming week for fun. Over the years I have had off and on luck till thanksgiving time. Couple pics from this fall.  I just like a fathead on 1/8 oz jig or a plain hook with a split shot. Quite the battle when the 28 inch northern tried to eat the bass. It got stuck on the jig so reeled them both in. Ran into the current two times. Fight city. LOL 
    • MinnowBuckets
      Yeah, I’ve thought of ice fishing below some of the dams in the area, but I always end up talking myself out of it.

      I've been doing OK, too.  I dunno how long the bite last. In the old days when we had real, manly winters, we'd whack 'em through the ice down below the Sartell dam, so I imagine they'll keep biting as long as we're willing to tough it out. 
    • MinnowBuckets
      Thanks guys! I wonder how much longer the bite will last with the cold temps this fall. The water is already extremely cold for this time of year. Anyone else have any reports?
    • eyeguy 54
      nice job!  gotta love the fall bite on the sippi.

      Awesome catch MinnowBuckets!!😎

      So Gimruis has a problem with meat hunters on the lake.  Then he should be promoting the use of cameras instead of guns when out hunting birds or animals.  If you want to fish for sport and look down on those that fish for food then go get a hand held fishing game and sit on the shore.  Believing something is the truth doesn't mean that it is.  You can say the lake isn't mismanaged all you want and that the surveys work because the people using them have advanced degrees.  I work for people in construction that have degrees but don't know crap about what actually happens on a construction site.  The worst thing to happen to electricians is schools putting out project management courses.  Now instead of people with practical knowledge running jobs we have people schooled in theory with big ideas and egos to match.  You Gimruis seem to be the same.  Saying that people shouldn't fish for food and saying they are the problem is insanity.  You have no place in this conversation.
