Lunch Fish

7 posts in this topic

With a new baby in the house my fishing time gone for the time being except for a few minutes during lunch occasionally. Today was really windy and I almost turned around as soon as I got there but I figured my backyard worms could either die swimming or sitting in my truck so I gave it a shot. This little thing made my day. Anyone got a better lunch hour fish?

I hear you on the baby. We had our second last July. It was all lunch fishing and evenings after 9:00 for me. My wife was very accommodating with the evening fishing. It'd get to the point where I'd catch two little walleye from 9:00 to 10:00 pm and it felt great.

I don't have any photos, but I travel around my area quite a bit for home inspections for my job, I always have a rod with and on occasion stop and take a few casts here and there, it's a great perk of the job and catch a few now and then.

I'll never forget my best lunch hour fish. On my lunch break I had my rods in my car from the day before, decided I'd stop by a local lake here in Shoreview. First cast, unweighted pearl white Senko, I caught a 22 1/2" largemouth. Took her off, walked 20' down the shore, caught another one, 19 1/2". Took her off, walked 20' down the shore, caught another one, 17". Time was up and I had to get back to work. Needless to say I frequent that lake now as often as possible during lunch! Haven't got 3 fish in 3 casts since, but I usually get 1 every time I go.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
