losing "Walter"

Recommended Posts

What a perfect day to be out in the kayak fishing. Absolutly a beautiful day. Caught a few decent size sunnies, a very nice Lg mouth, then I decided to move across to another small bay, and then it began crazy - a HUGE Hit, a dive and then GONE, about 20 minutes later - a HUGE Hit, gone in 2 sec, again about 1/2 hr later - a Huge Hit a short dive and maybe 7 sec, GONE. I lost "Walter" 3 times in an hour and a half !!!! crycry

Pretty sure it was a pike - - a huge pike - - cry

Oh jeez Tami! That is such a bummer! I can't even imagine pulling a northern in from a kayak. That would be the ultimate adrenalin rush! At least you were out fishing and not working! smile

What's worse is when you get a very large walleye up to the boat and you realize you forgot the net and he breaks the line before you can have a chance to grab him. Although I don't know which is worse, to think it was a huge fish or to know it was. And no I still haven't gotten out yet. cry Life things seem to keep getting in the way.

Hey Tami, were you fishing local or up at your place up Nort? Sorry to hear about the 1 tug louie but that is what makes fishing so dang much fun isn't it? Good luck on your next outing. I am sure "Walter" will still be lurking in that new favorite spot of yours!

I was on a local lake here in the south burbs, and I will be out Walter hunting again tonight. He's lurking in the shallows by the catails, the water is only about about 2.5 ft deep and the bottom is very soft, but I've got his number grin I know where he's feeding and I know what he likes .. ( jaws music playing here ..... ) laugh - He's mine crazygrin -

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • 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!
