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.

    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
