South End Gravel

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hello
I usually go out of Brandts on the south end and was wondering if anyone is getting out to sloppy joes or the 4 or 5 mile gravel yet and how much ice is out there. thanks

Rocky, I would be careful if your heading out to sloppy joe's. My buddy and I fished the south end a couple of days ago and heard that a four wheeler went down out there. We had planned on trying to get out there also before we heard that. Everywhere we went which included banana reef, graveyard and spider had a good eight inches of solid ice, but apparently there are still some dangerous areas so be careful and good luck.

Wallyhanger,
Thanks for the reply. I heard some reports of people going out to sloppys and the gravel the last couple of days which could be true. However, I had a hard time believing the ice was safe enough to get out that far, especially with the warm weather as of late. I heard about the 4 wheeler going through also so it makes no sense risking it just to catch a fish. I am itching to get out there but it might be another week or two depending if it gets cold soon. Good luck fishing this year

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
