Fished below a dam yesterday. Only had two hours to fish, but! Since I was fishing from shore the wind was a BIG problem!!! Had lots of hits, but with such a bow in my line hook sets stunk. Did manage two walleye( a 14 and a 10)one little crappie, and a couple of small bass. Not bad for one of my last outings for the year.

Finally fished the little river. Gorgeous morning  for a start! I should have had my limit of 5, but manage to mess up numerous times. Early in the morning the bite was very light. They would just pick it up. Most times I couldn't feel the bite. ( I have nerve damage in my hands; so not a lot of feeling)  Later you could feel the tick. Took two nice walleye and a big blue gill home. Lost several other fish, and caught 5 fun small mouth and a few small walleye. AND got bit off 6 times by northern! I tried cranks, and a spoon trying to catch the buggers, BUT!!

A GOOD morning!

Went over the other evening for a change.( normally fish mornings) Think I just got in on the tail end of the bite. Caught two small fish right away, but nothing after that. What was VERY disappointing was the fact I had FOUR otters swimming in the area below the dam not far from me. I saw how may fish one of them would kill during  a winter a few years ago.( by all the dead fish laying on the ice; bass, catfish northern and rough fish)  Don't want to think how many four will kill!:cry: Weather permitting, going to try in the morning before the storms move in.

Went over Sat. and Sun. mornings. Saturday was slow except for about half an hour when everybody was catching fish. Did my best floating a 2 in. power minnow suspended  about 4 ft. under a float; fished alongside rack bars in the river. Took two nice eaters home.

Sunday was slow for every one. Was having some luck again floating the minnow, but the location of the active fish I was looking into the sun. Had terrible time telling bites. Tried line watching  but with the wind it was tuff! Took one eater home to add the others. Had a nice meal .

Went over for a morning last week.( ben busy with family things!!) The water has been up, but was very clear. Fishing was slow for walleye, with just seeing three caught, Lots of northern with most being small. I did manage to loose about a 4 - 5 lb. trying to get it on shore before I was bit off. Almost made it!:D

 Hope to try this week end with warmer temps.

Went over for a while today.(12-8-15) Fishing was slow. Manage five small walleye, four smalleys, and two northern. Missed other bite as the wind made connecting hard at times. Still! Considering it's almost the middle of Dec., I'm not complaining!:D

Only got to be out once this spring( the river has been going up and down so much). Nothing  to show for it, but it REALLY felt good to be out!!  Hope for more stable water levels soon.

The walleye fishing has been very good lately. I got out a couple of times. Many nice eaters, seemingly all males.

Went over for a while Sat. morning, with wife's son in law. Neither of us could get any hits working jigs and plastics. I switched to my jig and float. Released a 24 in walleye.; 12 in smallie, then gave the set up to Dave. Took a little bit to get him using it right, but he managed four smaller walleye, and one keeper. I re rigged one of my other rods, and managed two nice keepers.  Water was up, but fairly clear.

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend....or yers?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
