Great AM w/ Hawgtide!!!!


Recommended Posts

So, my boy (6) and I are at Montissippi at oh-dark-hundred for a morning of shore-fishing when Hawgtide shows up to launch for a morning of fishing and asks my son and I to go with him!!

Thanks again, man!

He took us upriver and we had a GREAT TIME! I would have never gone that far upriver with the water dropping in my prop rig, but his jet went fearlessly across the riffles without a care in the world.

Talk about an awesome angler! Hawgtide boated at least a half-dozen big bronzebacks while piloting the drift and being a courteous and hospitable host! My son hasn't had his ego stroked like that since we took his training wheels off! He deserved it, though! The boy caught a nice 16 1/2" smally on a buzzbait. His dad, however, spent more time tying and retying than fishing. I did get a nice cat while jigging a hole. That was my first time fishing that stretch from a boat and I was overwhelmed with my options! Next time I have the opportunity, however, I'll keep it simple.

It was a very educational morning for me.

Greg, can you e-mail and/or post those pix to me?

Thanks again, Greg!

I also got the chance to go out with the Legend HT! It really humbles ya when the man that has to worry about boat control and everything else that goes along with it smokes you 2-1 and the amazing thing about this was that our average size was, to say the least, HUGE!

The really great thing about fishing with HT, besides the unbelievable hospitality, is that its like Cabelas in that boat, and those HAWGOMOTO Baits are a must have!..... however I believe they wont be available till after the Sartell Tourney blush.gifblush.gif Something about not being fully tested yet! grin.gif

Must have something to do with HT's ability to catch them green fish South of the Mason Dixon. Seems the, 'Bama boyz are born with it. grin.gif

From the recent reports, its gonna take 20 lbs to win Sartell....KT

Greg, the e-mail addy is in my first post. Thanx! I like the Hawgomoto baits, and that color blend Greg formulated for his jigs and skirts. Move over 'firetiger' and make room for 'Allybam-o-rama'!

20 lbs, KT? Yeah, he hit 20lbs and all the while wondered why he couldn't find fish. shocked.gif

You guys are being too nice. blush.gif Besides, I learned the river from KT anyways!

Rob, I can't believe I didn't see that email address. crazy.gif It's too hot, I've got blurred vision. I'll get those out this evening.

I kow what you mean about the "Man I wish we could find some bigger fish" thing! We were catching mainly 17-19.999:" fish and HT keeps complaining that he needs a kicker! our best 5 would have easily went 18-20, but we never did get the 5 pound kicker! Just those little 3.5-4 pound dinks blush.gifblush.gifgrin.gif

      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.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
    • Wheres_Walter
      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
