Recommended Posts

eyepatrol

Here I am, either stuck in the office, at home doing yard work, or helping take care of the kids while yesterday it was 80+ degrees out and today is just gorgeous!!! This is just torture! frown.gif

Hope others are able to get out and enjoy these days. Catch one for me please! grin.gif (just venting some "withdrawls" here!) grin.gif

P.S. - everyone have a good, safe weekend!

Talk about torture, i just moved to a new home and my driveway is about the consistency of jello pudding still...I put the boat in the garage when it was still frozen, but now I can't get it out of my garage!!!!! The whole reason I moved to Forest Lake was to be closer to some of my favorite lakes and now I can't even use them.

I went home over lunch today just to let the dog out, I saw several people loading up the boats and getting ready for a day on the water, and man what a day to get out!

I am stuck here working errrrrr....(surfing this site) until its late enough in the afternoon for me to sneak out and not feel guilty lol.

Fellas, fellas, not to worry....I got out enough for all of us, so far! grin.gif As a matter of fact, after having the boat on the water 4 times in 4 days, with 4 different buds, I'm fished out! One of my other buds wanted to go, to help ease you fellas pain of course, but I just didn't have it in me to do my part! grin.gif

Grebe, Grebe, Grebe....only way I'll be happy is to be out there 365, 7, 12 (not 24)! grin.gif Just kiddin'!

I really do need to get out though. Last time I was out was about the 3rd of March or so, still ice fishing. Maybe next weekend though. Talked with the "boss" and so far things are a go. Loading up on fishing gear tomorrow, so that will help to some degree! grin.gif

Torture? How about sitting here in the above normal temps watching a fantastic walleye chop while my buddy, in a state that doesn't close fishing seasons, is having a blast during the best time of the year............... mad.gif

I know exactly what you mean. I've got an old college buddy in South Dakota who e-mails me pics of the walleyes he caught while I sit here and watch the counter. crazy.gif

5 years ago that didn't matter as I was going out there and fishing with him this time of year. Wife and kids now...completely different story! It's a good trade-off though! grin.gif

It is a dirty job, but someone has to do it. I fished 4 of the last 6 days. Crappie bite was great one day and fair one other day. The other two days were spent doing yard work, so I am not fishing all of the time.

HaywardBound -

Not yet....not until next year in Feb/March. Pretty well have the set-up nailed down, but boat brand is still up in the air. It's been fun so far though.

Aww, I thought you pulled the trigger.

I was in your situation a while back...the waiting part was hard...well torture for me. I'm going into my second year with my (used) SportFish.

I'm looking forward to you getting your boat.

If you get an afternoon off this summer, give me a holler & I'll let you teach me some bassin.

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.
