Anyone have any luck yesterday?

6 posts in this topic

Ran out to Steiger for the afternoon and only 2 small bass and a pike. I'm guessing it was the cold front (or maybe my hangover from a wedding Saturday but that's another story). Plus my brother told me the boat was all set, by which he meant everything but the trolling motor battery. So overall a rough day but the fresh air did me some good.

Well, I fished a tournament yesterday and while the winner was not me... He did come in with 5 fish that went 22 lbs.. I would say they were still biting.

I was also in a tournament and the winner, also not me, brought in just in 14 pounds for 5 fish... It was windy!

Ok, maybe it was just me. If they were hitting really soft I might have just been not detecting bites. Or maybe I just need to work on getting baits down and through milfoil (I don't fish many milfoil lakes).

Super - That tourney was on coon lake, and it was an awesome day. We caught 15 keepers and only 3 of those were under 3 lbs. It's a really good feeling to have 20 lbs in the box by 9 am, then upgrading from there!!

Nick - The bite for us was very light, and we were only getting about 2 fish an hour, but we caught them from start to finish. At times it was hard to stick with it because it was so slow, but another 4 lber would keep us going.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
