Texan's Observations


Recommended Posts

Well, the much anticipated report is as follows:

1.) Weather in late May is certainly unpredictable

2.) Horseshoe resort has built one heck of a new lodge and we were privileged to have rented the entire thing. For those looking for a place to stay, give Clark and Elaine a call.

3.) Fishing with the Colonel and Jones was a treat, Colonel put one in our party on a 28 and a 26 walleye in the worst weather I've seen in my 4 years up there. The walleye were released by the way, to continue to support the cass lake fishery system.

4.) Was able to meet CFD and his crew, sorry they had to leave so soon. Not sure what happened on that end but certainly hope everything has worked out.

5.) The mushroom swiss at the Pike Hole was as good as ever, we were fortunate to be able to continue eating there after one of our party had an irresistable crush on one of the waitresses. Needless to say, she was not near as excited about the potential relationship as my fellow Texan.

6.) Sure is relaxing to get amongst friends and dang good people up there, I cannot tell you how nice things are over at the Horseshoe. Have yet to ask for something that they do not provide and believe me we ask for quite a bit of stuff.

Sure I'll have more to add in the next few days, feel free to ask any questions. Fish location questions will need to be directed to the Colonel and Jones, Texan does not give away where we were cool.gif

Don't ask - don't tell?????

Sorry to hear about the weather but it still sounds like some great memories were made.

Did the Mepps work at all?

Minnesota, just isn't the same without the Texan & his group. I give you a lot of credit, coming from 90 degree temperatures and fishing in cold, windy, rain was impressive. You guys are to be commended. Thank God you had enough antifreeze and great food to keep you going.

Nice seeing the crew, think about next year when it will be WARMER.

Gene,

Caught many on a #5 lime green black fury....trolling of course cool.gif

Yea, there were a few fellow Texans in the group that were overserved, to say the least....

Jones, if there is a way to post a picture of Trent in his finest hour, please advise.....

Paul sure put it on all of us one day then came back to earth the next day...guess that's why they call it fishing instead of catching.

Thanks for helping us out Paul, enjoyed meeting you and will catch you again next trip up, looks like we are now coming the second week of June next year.

Yep, 2nd week of June next year. I knew I could convince you to see it my way. We better plan on 2 weeks in 2006 so we can get some actual fishing done in addition to all the bsing.

Shining up my Mepps tonight...14 days until liftoff.

Thanks for leaving some in the lake for us.

Tired of the weather issues and unpredictable fishing. Man, you need to get over to the Shoe and check out the new building....awesome!!!!

Not sure Gene what color will work when you are there but yellow and green were hot. Yellow #5 aglia with yellow hair caught a 38 inch muskie while trolling for Pike. Fish was released as not in season but we would never keep one anyway.

Be nice next year to actually fish for Muskie and bass....

Texan,

We have done ok casting plain Silver Mepps or Yellow baits similar to Mepps. Never have tried Green before so thanks for the tip. Were you trolling Cass or Kitchi? and how deep?

As far as fishing bass, we don't do much in June but we do like to go into Windigo to try at least one day a week. And in Allen's bay we run into a few on our bobbers once in a while. Never fish musky at all - don't have the patience.

Largest pike came from trolling the NW side of star island. Tried kitchi and cass and caught them in both lakes

Graham and I worked our arses off one afternoon throwing everything we had in the boat at weedlines in 6 feet of water. Had numerous fish follow the dang lures right up to the boat and never a hit....nothing a shot of captain morgan and a prozac didn't cure cool.gif

Very frustrating at times for sure. We call those followers "swimmers". Capt cures all I hear.

      Has anyone here had any luck on Rice Lake yet this year? All that rain a couple of weeks ago made the water level go way up and fishing opener for us was a complete bust ( although apparently someone on the lake caught a 31" walleye according to a DNR officer).   I'll be up there for at least part of the long weekend this weekend. Looking forward to some fishing. I'm contemplating targeting the bay that Morning Star Resort is on for some walleye. I don't claim to be an expert in fishing or fish behavior but it's early season so shallower seems to be better than deeper dropoffs like we would normally target during the summer. Forecasts I've seen suggest targeting bays too. Anyone have thoughts on that?   Good luck to anyone out there this weekend! Hopefully the fishing is back to normal after the weird start to the season.

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.
