Slummin'

14 posts in this topic

Went out on Prior last night with no fishing rods and no bait. Just wanted to get on the water and play around while the wife and kids were at the Harry Potter movie.

Saw lots of 11 and 11.5 inch bass being caught. There was a 15 boat tournament going on. I hung out for the weigh in and enjoyed talking shop. I think its just about time to go back to bass fishing.

Sounds like perfect size bait bro. lol

I'll admitt, I have done some bass fishing recently esp Topwater. They're not too bad to catch. lol

I am getting out to meet my old friends the bucketmouths this weekend. I want to get up there tomorrow before sundown and try some topwater. Otherwise I am doing my favorite summer fishing and that is out on the water when the sky start going from black to blue, but the sun isn't up. There is that window where fish go nuts before the migration to deep water or burying themselves in cover. Good times...

...oh, this is the cat forum.

Even Bass fishing is a better use of your time than the Harry Potter movie.

Stick with the river. The sunfish were biting by BP the other day on worms. Plenty of rough fish as well between cats.

Sunfish? Either those were some bigazz sunfish, or Ed is using worms. smile

I believe DTRO has a video of a Bass catfish jumping out of the water.. Thats as close as one should get to bass fishing.

    • 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!
