Past month's fishing report

12 posts in this topic

Well, been pretty busy lately and haven't had much time to post. Here's the run down from the past month!

My nephew came home on leave for a couple weeks back in May(Navy) and wanted to do some fishing. Took him and my oldest son Matt over to Johnson's Lake to chase walleye's. We caught quite a few drifting Wally Drift'r and Wally Special jigs tipped with crawlers. Most of the eyes were short but Matt managed to get a keeper less than 2 minutes into our 1st drift.

I then fished the night bite with a couple of friends. We managed to catch a few walleye and white bass.

Last night I took a friend out to get a pattern down for a trip with some clients on friday. We did really good and I can tell you that the night bite is getting into full swing. We did really well on Whites and walleye! We caught over 60 and had our limits of walleye ranging in size from 17-23".

Took a few clients out Friday and we managed to catch some fish! Not as good as previous trips but they were happy.

Then Sat night, a couple friends and I went up to Sherman to get on a pattern up there for a few potential trips. All I can say is, SLOW! We caught a few here and there before a nice flurry just before we left @ 4am. The whites were all BIG and fat! We also caught 5 walleye(2 keepers), drum, and 2 crappie.

The night bite is stil in full swing! Took a Husband & wife team out this past thursday night. The white bass kept us busy along with a few walleye. Didn't get any pics of this trip as we got ran off the lake by a T-storm. It rained and hailed HARD for about 15 minutes while I was getting the boat ready to head home.

Fished Merritt last week. Water/weather was absolutely perfect. Fishing was slooooooooow. Tried everything. Caught a keeper right of the bat then it never got better. Oh well, Canada is right around the corner.

Walleye4, do you have a HSOforum for your jigs and sounds like you guide as well, do you have a HSOforum for that? Shoot me an email with details on both. Thanks. mattiqm@yahoo.com

Prov1900,

Bummer on Merritt! Last I had heard was it was on like DONKEY KONGG up there! Your going back up to Canada? Wish I could AFFORD to do something like that! I may make it out and try to get on a Crappie pattern next week! Starting to get calls and the crappie bite is pretty good from what I hear. Are you going to make plans to hit KS with us for the Fall Spoon bite? I am getting excited for that! BIG walleye, whites, and stripers here I come!!! Sure hope I can get my custom spoon molds to work!!

Yeah, it sounds like we just missed the hot bite. Story of my life. Get yourself a passport, going to Canada for less than 500, with everything, this time around. Of course it is only for 3-4 days. When are you guys heading to Kansas? I would love to get down there and learn that spooning deal. My September is pretty much toast by now, but would like to get something done in October. Won't put the boat away till the ice is thick enough to walk on. I think we should have a pretty good ice year. Looking forward to it.

As long as the ice stays off, we'll be on the eyes ALL winter! I am getting alot of trips set up to head South in October-November! I hope I can get my spoon molds done in time!!

    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.

    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
