Tough week for me.

4 posts in this topic

Well last week was awesome for me. This week just about reversed itself as three nights without a run and tonight finally a few fish but they were on the small side.

Up's and Downs for me.

Saturday was ok with 3 fish boated all small, Tuesday I was stuck with harvey lee's bad luck but managed to catch a nice walleye, Thursday was great, boated 6 fish and broke two off as well as missed a half dozen more. I landed 2 nice channels, 2 small flats in the 7-10lb range, one in the high teens and my new PB at an estimated 40lbs. Last night was slower but still brought three cats to the boat, 2 flats and a channel but everything was under 10 lbs.

Here's the picture for those who haven't seen it yet-

My week consisted of only one night, last night. It was good action, and even though we didn't get any big fish in the boat, I had a blast.

Nice one riverrat. We had similar luck that you had last night. Small fish and some misses, breakoffs, and some fish running into the wood.

Nice fish Nick and it was cool running into you guys last night. It was a fun adventure exploring some new water.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
    • That a shot at me being former military?
