  7. Transition Bass

    Last year in north central MN where I am it was June 10th before the bass really showed up on beds. Water had been in the mid 60's for awhile but it took a surface temp of 70 before they were really on beds. Those rockbass are also on beds around the same time so bed size is important. The basketball size ones are rockys usually. The 2 to 3 footers are bass.
  8. learning to use a baitcaster

    All good information. I might add...... A baitcaster requires a different technique for casting. If you are used to snapping your lure out with a spinning rod you will forever fight backlashes. You need to swing back and feel the weight of the lure and allow the rod to swing it out as opposed to a quick snapping action that some people use on spinning gear. It's hard to explain but I've watched people do it and really struggle trying to get it down. Aside from that, all the above covers most everything you need to know. I started using them about 20 years ago and rarely now use a spinning outfit for anything. Pitching takes practice, it will come to you in time. All I've ever done different to pitch is to loosen up the knob that gives the spool it's tension, but you have to be really good with your thumb. Also pitching in the yard is one thing and in a boat can be a whole lot different. The first thing I noticed was I'd hit something on the boat while starting the pitch, now talk about a backlash. Good luck, keep at it, don't be discouraged. You will get it.
  9. Pre Spawn, Spawn, Post Spawn

    Were the really big ones with the red fins full of eggs or flat and spawned out? You usually only see the red fins on the egg filled ones if they are on the bed. If they are spawned out and red finned they are just getting done and in a post spawn mode, but barely. Going by your water temp they should be close one way or the other. Also... you can find bigger males with the red fins. But not usually 5 pounders.
  10. License Question

    The license is the least of your worries. The married thing will cost you the rest of your life by far more than you will ever gain on the license.
  11. unusual catch on topwater....

    Once got a 12" crappie on a purple texas rigged lizard in 3 feet of water, it had the whole lizard just about swallowed down. Also caught 2 jumbo perch in 10 minutes on a 7 1/2" culprit worm. This summer mine son was casting with a 2" daredevil and caught a crappie. You just never know.
