Tough Bite?

Ole the Guide

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else been noticing the lack of enthusiasum the LMB are giving us these days? Is this weather pattern shutting them down? I've been fishing deep, shallow and in between. All I'm catching is little guys and an occasional 16-17 incher.

What's up? Anyone care to join in would be appreciated!

The last couple times out to my go-to lake, we've been getting smaller numbers of fish, but a bigger class of fish. The bass caught last night were 3.7, 3.9, and 4.5 lbs, along with four smaller fish.

I fished a south metro lake last Friday morning for three hours without a single bite and was just about to pull the plug when I hooked into a pig. She was 5-6 lbs?? I'm guessing. I got a great look at her boatside as she cleared the water by a foot, spit and bounced the worm off my chest, winked and grinned at me while completing her 180 flip, splooosh....gone. wink.gif That was the only action I saw that day. There was quite a few boats working that lake, might be the reason I didn't get much action.

It's only going to get better Ole, the fishing bug has worn off the majority of anglers by now, guys are thinking hunting and such. Our prime time to go pig hunting will be in the next two months. Just keep at it. Good luck.

Duffman, look closer next time. When they turn like that, and grin, you'll see a raised pectoral fin as well.

I've notced it for the last few weeks. I've had a couple of decent days with numbers of small fish, or a few nice fish, but it's been tough. Especially on a couple of my lakes that had weed die offs, and between the heat and the murky water it's been very dissapointing. Hopefully it'll pick up soon.

      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.

      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.
