Great AM w/ Hawgtide!!!!

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

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

Aquaman,

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

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
