bmc's Winnie fishing crew.........


Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gal. Just wanted to say it was a blast hooking up with the Duluth/WI crew for the Winnie event! I had a great time and the fishing wasn't too bad either. From Northlander's beer boiled brats, BD110's pickled northern, and lota's hi-tech mapping system, little perch's venison, and the few fish that cooperated, it was a great day. Looking forward to when we can hook up again. We should plan on next winter again, even if there isn't an official event. Let's not rule out the rest of this winter and summer either. Did you guys hit the freezing rain on the way home? It started here around 9pm, but I got sidetracked on the way home at the Oupost in Deer River, and came out around 11 to find an iced up truck.

Nice to see you again Brian.

I was telling STF the Slender Spoons from Custom Jigs & Spins you had good luck with look a lot like the discontinued Tingler. grin.gif

Good to see you to Frank.

Guess what my new favorite walleye bait is? grin.gif We should try to hook up for a laker trip up on B-side yet this winter. I wish I could make the Bash, but it just ain't gonna happen as I'm on nights Friday night and will be entertaining the kid's on the weekend. They don't quite have the patience yet for lakers! wink.gif

Hey Brian,

All I could think about when we made it home on Saturday night was sleep. I can no longer get Fishing MN at work the site is blocked. Now that I'm at home I can do some posting. It's just about 10:00 am on Monday and I just got done starting a double batch of Pickled Northern. That's 6 Quarts if you are keeping track.

It's always great to hook up with you Brian. I'm sure that we will get out again before the water opens up. Scott and Steve my daughter Stacey seemed to have a good time hanging out with us so that a plus for me. Little perch I was going to ask you if your house was a little warmer after we got the bottom part hooked thru the sleeve? That's a nice rig you have it should last you many years.

Frank, I wish we had more time to spend with you during the day. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and say hi. The Duluth crew was a little smaller in numbers but they always seem to have a good time.

Thanks again everyone!!!

Take care,

Tom

Tinglers? Oh, yes, those! Well, I didn't give back ALL the ones I borrowed a couple years ago, and they've been catching lakers at a smart rate. grin.gif

bmc: Good quote on McGuane. I've got all his stuff, and he's the best fishing writer I've ever read. "Silent Seasons" is a must for any reader who fishes, or any angler who reads. And if you like horses, his "Some Horses" is tremendous. Though a novelist by trade, his best work is in his essays, I believe.

      Funny, my wife and I drove by Big Rice on our way to Grand Rapids. I pointed to the launch and said, somewhere there's an old rotting couch in there, two clowns 🤡🤡 on the forum keep joking each other about pissing on. She said gross! Cuz that's what guys talk about on forums! 😆😅🤣

      i think he moved it down south of remer..........closer to his recliner by big rice lake!!!!!!!!🤣🤗

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
