Anyone want some big chubs?

27 posts in this topic

My dad's been trapping some big chubs (8-10", mostly rainbows but some creek chubs) up in the Grand Rapids area, and all he does is throw 'em back since he just fishes for walleyes. I figured some of you guys might want some. No charge if you just wanna come pick 'em up. I don't go up too often, about every 3 weeks, but I'd be more than happy to bring 4-5 dozen back with me.

Dan Birkholz huh? I feel like I've been asked about a Dan before. Doesn't ring a bell to me....is he from Ortonville? There's a good chance.

JimBuck, I'm not sure where he's from, I'm pretty sure it's the Burnsville area. His dad is a pastor, if that helps.

I'll be north of Nashwauk about 15 miles. Hopefully I'll see ya then. Also, do you want any grass shiners? We get quite a few of them and some of 'em are really good sized. I'd say about 6" long but they're alot fatter than emeralds or goldens, and they stay alive in a bucket much better

You know where Bray Lake is? 6 miles east of hwy 65, on the north side of hwy 56. We live on the north side of the lake. Where you going?

Looks like I'm gonna have my work cut out for me this week! BTW, do you guys prefer rainbows or creek chubs? I mostly get rainbows, they probably make up about 90% of my hauls

Do you want bigger chubs, normal ones?

I love radisson, there's actually alot of nice smallies in there. Don't be afraid to head over to napolean and owen, too. Great crappie/bass/pike lakes. Owen's actually one of my favorites for bass, both numbers and size. Bring plenty of Senkos and Flukes in any color as long as it's watermelon or white w/ silver flecks

I do enjoy the occassional Surley Bender or CynicAle. Well, maybe more than occassional.... smile

I'll tell ya what, just keep me in mind if you ever feel like hitting the lake and you have an empty seat in your boat, and we'll call it even.

    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though    
    • Maybe you can just carefully pull the right cable through with the old one but doughtfull if you got the foamed version.
    • Looked in every hole I could find. Hope I got it all but will leave out the traps for a few days.
