Weekend Report

Recommended Posts

I took my dad out for a couple hours Saturday afternoon to a small, south metro lake and I caught 3 crappies. The first one went 14" and the others went 6" and 13". I caught the 14 and the 6 on my dad's pole while he was trying to fix my reel. My dad, unfortunately, didn't catch a thing.

I also called TIP for the first time ever and the lady seemed very annoyed that I called! I told her there were 2 guys in a boat right next to us (and next to 3 other boats), fishing with 2 lines each and over limit on crappies and she didn't seem to care at all! I wasn't sure if they spoke English or not and I asked them if they knew that it was illegal to use 2 poles, but they just stared at me and didn't answer.

I went back for about 3 hours on Sunday with a couple friends with mixed luck. We were bobber fishing with minnows and small plastics. Right away my friend landed an 18" bass and a 17 1/2" bass--not a bad way for him to start his '07 fishing season! I also caught a 17" bass, a 13" bass, 1 small crappie, and several small sunfish. All fish were released.

The lake temp was 65 on Saturday and 63 on Sunday!

Fished Minnetonka for the first time this past saturday. Caught my first summertime crappie (10"). Thought it was going to be a good day fishing, but after that crappie, that was the only fish I caught.

Also, It's really easy to get turned around on Minnetonka.. I cant imagine heading out there without GPS (well, until one learns the lake).

Went out shore-fishing on a tiny Dakota county pond on Friday afternoon - beautiful weather! Caught one crappie & a good number of sunfish, several of which had shoulders like I haven't seen on metro sunfish in years. The colors were brilliant as well, some bright orange bellies & that almost iridescent blue pattern on some of the fish.

Everything caught on waxies or small bits of Gulp. I'll be out this week to experiment with some different plastics in the same spot/s to try to broaden my arsenal!
