State Record Broken Twice on consecutive casts!

Recommended Posts

DTro

Fishing the backwaters this evening for some White Bass (caught probably 50 in the 14-17" range).

On consecutive casts PapaGrump and myself hooked into two monster Mooneyes. His was 2lb 1oz and mine was 2lb 10oz and 20".

Looking tonight at the record, it's 1lb 15oz blush.gif

I'm pretty sure these were mooneye and not goldeyes. If so, record was broken on consecutive casts as Brian caught his first.

Fun Stuff. What a night with 7 species caught!

ok, after a little research, it looks like these are indeed Goldeyes.

2 oz shy of that record. Oh well, still a blast.

yeah, little bit slimed grin.gif

I thought really hard about making some bait with those, but it was hard to do knowing that's the only one I've caught in that river. Made them seem kind of rare, so I didn't want to kill it.

      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.

      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.

      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?
