I CAN'T WAIT!!!I CAN'T WAIT!!!I CAN'T WAIT!!!

So what's up? Who else can't wait?

I would say that this is the most difficult time of the year...you can fish for everything except bass and musky..the two fish I would say that are the most sporting with most of the fish caught being released by fishermen... come on 24th...

I figure this would get you guys pump’in.

My boy Dylon got this Smallie while sucker fishing on Sunday:

VSkT06wvP-eHE949zyTzPsgy1QslDOVa0300.jpg

It was caught and released! I do not know what happened to cause the injury, but it is back in the water for you guys. For us, first smallie to be caught in this area ever by us sucker fish'in in the last 5 years.

It was caught on a river rig and crawler.

Check out the Carp/Real Game forum for more details!

It looks like the bass has been making a bed that is why its tail fin is ruffed up...always a fun fish to catch though!

I know the feeling, though haven't felt it this year(living in WI it opens earlier of course).

Found the bass here in shallow weedbeds near deeper water last weekend. Fished swimbaits on the edges and soft plastic jerkbaits in and over the emerging weeds. They were definitley aggresive, though were missing the bait quite a bit. Managed a few nice 16"+ largemouths and some pike. Didn't seem to be setting up beds, but they were shallow.

definately excited to fish MN lakes on the 24th! I get to get out of the land where rapala is pronounced rapauwla for a bit (Wisconsin)

Lunker- looks like your a student at Point too, I'm a sophomore taking fisheries. Recently I've found about the same sort of thing going as you with the largemouth, been using mostly super flukes and working them real slow in bays around laydowns and done descent. Smallies as far as numbers I've found mostly along the slow seams of current yet. I have a few pics in another post down a few

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
