Hot bite

32 posts in this topic

If the bullhead bite from this morning for the whiskered bait is any indication of how the flathead bite will be, it should be showtime tonight.

I see a 40 in the boat tonight.

Don’t worry Tom, I can pretty much guarantee you that at one point during your outing tonight you will use the phrase “That was Easy”

Hopefully the St Peter launch is in good shape.

I have heard nothing but good things from the St Peter, Mankato area. Mankato may be the hotest bite going right now. Way to many from that area being fairly quiet.

Maybe a few big KOTC fish in the next 4 days from that stretch of the river.

The St.peter Launch is golden! One caution is if your going up stream there is a very large log stuck on the inside first corner that was 6in under the water a couple of days ago. It might be showing now but just a heads up. Also as far as you guys catching fish you might just want to try lake washington! I would bet you guys could catch something there maybe. grin

Good Luck Fellas! Dont Blow away and catch a monster!

I had 71 degrees on Sakatah lake today. It shot up 10 degrees in in about 72 hours. Remember Saturday night and parkas? Feels like months ago in just a couple days...

There is NO bite in shako!!! Other than my flattie from last night. Had 2 GOOD runs on bullies this afternoon and upgraded a channel cat laugh

Good luck getting out of the wind tonight, SSW@34 gusting to 50, she was swirling BAD this afternoon. Hard to find anything out of the wind.

Be CAREFUL too. The wind makes it hard to read the water. I lost a prop today frown Luckily it was just the prop, everything else is just fine. Gonna have to get another spare though. I would post pics, but it took the prop right off the motor.

Water was up to 64-66 degrees!!!!!

Was shore fishing last night downtown St. Paul with the kids and was able to pick up a couple great channels a 7 and an 11 lber. In the excitment and trying to keep the kids from getting all tangled up in the line, I forgot to take a picture of myself with the KOTC 2009 pic. The cut sucker bite was hot!

Sounds Good! Just need to warn you! You might get stressed driving that boat of yours in a section of river where you dont have a 6ft channel everywhere you go! whistle

    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.
    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!
    • When is the date unsold bear tags go onsale?
    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".     
    • Can't build a taller garage when it's a tuck-under with sheet-rocked 7' ceilings!!! The truck sits up high....

    • Same thing here...*TWANG*  I took my big snippers to mine and screwed a black wire nut cap on the cut end. Or unscrew one from a junkyard F-150 and saw it off. Looks fine.
