Fishing over Memorial Weekend

6 posts in this topic

We fished over the weekend on a couple different lakes. We fished Winni and had moderate success in front of Highbanks with the largest fish being 23" on Saturday. It was a fun day and even after a liberal dosing of sunscreen, I got quite sunburnt (no pics-thank goodness). We also went crappie fishing on a very small local lake near the cabin and while we didn't catch a ton, it was a fun day! I love crappie fishing! Jim's brother and his wife and boys stayed up at the cabin this weekend also. What did everyone else do?

Good to hear you had good luck. I got out with Walli1 on the croix yesterday and had a great walleye day. Walli1 caught a 24", my best was a 20.5". Very good day for me on the water.

How fun!! The biggest walleye I got on Saturday was 19". I also caught my very 1st largemouth bass on Sunday. He was fun but not very big. grin

I went up to the cabin and after we put in the dock and boatlift, I took my 8 year old neice and 4 year old nephew into town to pick up bait. My nephew had never been in a bait shop before and as soon as he walked in he said in his loud voice "it stinks in here", everyone had a good chuckle. When I finally got the kids set up to fish, I tossed out a sucker minnow and almost forgot about it, I turned and sure enough the bobber was down. It was a 3lb 11oz Nothern and it sure impressed the kids. Didn't catch much after that but the kids had fun, especially watching me filet the fish.

I didn't go fishing at all cry. Friday I fixed the garage door handle, and put the bumper the "old grouch" bought for the lawn mower on, planted some plants. Saturday I got up and the weather looked kinda dicey so I figured maybe not, took the 4 wheeler out instead goofed around in the forest looking for rocks, mushrooms, and wolf tracks. It started to clear up and I thought hmmm maybe now, checked the battery on the boat..........dead! Good thing though as the weather turned nasty. Sunday it was so cold I didn't feel like going out so I did laundry and some blasting around here. Oh yeah and had to fix the other garage door handle cause the old grouch managed to pull that one loose too. Cheap doors from a big box company M.

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
