Sure felt like Cat season tonight

12 posts in this topic

Warm breeze, major bug hatch, owls hooting, coyotes howling, mosquitoes biting, clickers singing and video camera rolling.

Tonight was the first night that confidence was high enough to spend an extra hour or two out there.

What a beautiful night on the river.

I agree it was my first night out this Spring that has felt remotely close to summer nights. However, fishing was incredibly slow.

Just a much better night on the river than the past 5 weeks grin

Nothing huge, but steady action and some funny video moments. I’ll try to get a bit more footage and edit it over the long weekend.

I have to say that it was pretty nice to run the river back to the ramp at 11 PM and see that the air temp was still in the 70's. Two days ago it was 36 degrees at 10:30 PM.

Yes, it was a very nice warm ride back to the landing without the winter coat. Sounds like the next few evenings will be the same.

Lots of Bites. One very nice channel and a MONSTER CARP, that didn't want to cooperate.

Great night to explore some new spots... The fish locators were the ticket for getting on fish.

We had a decent night. 3 flats, a walleye, and a large sheepie.

    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles.
