New PB to cap off long weekend,,,

Recommended Posts

So i got back from my muskie trip up near Alexandria to which we put in 17hrs of hard fishing to only get 7-8 follows some of which were in the 50's but none were takers...high pressure with no wind and hot weather = slow fishing cry....so when i get home i decide to head down to the Minnesota river with Smeese. We got out around 9pm after finding two of the spots we wanted to fish taken by others. I decide to throw out cut bait and minutes later hook into a nice 5-6 channel and then a small flatty 10 minutes after that. The spot Smeese picked Smells GOOD! I throw out another cut sucker chunk and around 10 pm i get a nice screamer and hook into a definite PIG! After about a 7-8 minute fight from shore including the beast almost taking Smeese's arm off due to net in car. It took another run and the 2nd time in we got here landed took measurements twice and a few pics and sent her on her way....

49.5x28!

I guess I kinda was smirk ,I have had a good year over all, but if I was to calculate the hours fished by the fish caught, I would be shocked. But I will do it all again next season grin

Doubtful... The fish doesn't have the Mass in the head and shoulders. Its almost like one I caught a few a few years back. 48 inches long and only 39lbs Long and skinny, Not that thick Massive head you see on the some of the oinkers.

Still a beauty!

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
