Good luck out there this weekend, boys. I'll be on lake x in nunyer, MN hucking away until sunup.

And for cryin out loud, turn your boat lights on, you're not fooling any fish by leaving them off.

Fish have been going everyday....heh! The last several weeks (6) have been nothing short of great, should continue.

Amen on the lights, we got two yesterday with the headlamps shining on the lures at boatside...so yeah, good thing people are willing to sacrifice life and limb for a fish that doesn't care either way...<rolls eyes> now that's brutally intelligent.

Do people really think their lights are really brighter than the full moon???? C'mon people...think a little.

I did get out again lastnight and put 3 more in the boat. Got on the water around 12:00 a.m and off at 7:00 a.m. All fish came between 1:00 and 3:00. Lets see if I can get one more night away. May be pushing my luck. But then again, been mighty lucky the last couple nights. HAHAHAHAHAHA

Presentations aren't a whole lot different than daytime.

My "go-to" is a big blade spinnerbait or bucktail.

But slow topwaters and jointed cranks work well too.

yep, big blades and topwaters. we're seeing shifts from deep action to shallow action within hours, so don't be afriad to slide up there if you're not seeing fish on the deep edge, especially late night/early morning shallow stuff, but the bait selection doesn't change.

Boated two fish last night a 39 and a 45 with no tail...I wonder how he lost his tail?...He would have been an inch or two longer if he had that baby attached....Oh well very exiting night ! Both on slow topwaters..The big one came boat side with avengece...AWESOME!

When you are talking sloooow, are you talking about a creeper or hawg wobbler or just slowing down a topraider or pacemaker type bait?

We caught one on a Creeper and one on a slow moving top raider that had just missed the creeper seconds earlier.....So yes...both would be fine..It seems!

yep, all of the above. with any bit of moonlight or anywhere around the metro, they'll have no problem finding it. i really don't think they have a problem finding it anyway. probably save the creepers/wobblers for fish you've seen or places where you know they are in the interest of covering water.

ryan do you live and fish in illinois or are you fishing in minnesota?

    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL

    • Every one said, with out Double here we may as well leave.   So, Welcome back may be with you here they will come back now! 
    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
