Almost

Almost broke the 40 mark tonight, started off by netting a friends 44" that was fishing alone and had net/bait tangle issues. Had one hit at the boat and missed her due to not paying attention ( big fish to upper 40's). 20 minutes later hooked a fat 39" that made the net. 30 minutes later hooked and lost one, by then it was time for my partner to have to get off and go to work. Not a bad evening for only 2 1/2 hours on the water, fished from 5 till 7:30.

LOL yes I cropped it just for that rerason. It's not where everyone else is but same bay. We'll be checking this spot out come ice season. Hook up the boat and head this way I'll show you.

If your giving out hints. I have a couple questions.

Did I fish it during ice season?

Would I know where you were if you left the pic uncropped?

Nice fish Shawn. Couldn't have made that background easier to figure out. Unfortunately racing and weather kept me off the water this weekend.

Community spot not worried about it, several boats were fishing it all weekend, and only a couple others boated fish. Add 2 more to the tally for Chris today he's up to 8 in 3 days only 1 under 40.

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
