14 posts in this topic

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.

Trying to get out again tonight. Will have to see what the better half has in mind.

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?

    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref  
    • Which size are you referring to? 
    • How much current do the battery pumps draw?
