new State Record?

37 posts in this topic

Anybody else hear the rumor of a new record, 9lbs 6 oz. Taken on a lakle in the Alex area. Late last week. Story goes, he missed the bigger of the two, caught the 9-6. I know the name of the lake, but will wait to see if anybody else can confirm.

He may mention a lake, but I bet it is not the one he actually caught the fish out of.

So far, I think it is a big fish story.

Ah, the opener fish tale it is. Did the piggie first attack his trolling motor?

If it is the lake mentioned, it is very possible. Big fish taken out of it every year. Agape, where are you? confirm or dispel this fish tale. If it is true, I guess the other thread on where the next state record will come from is answered. Central MN.

I always question one thing. If a said person caught a state record bass but names a different lake as to deter people from pressuring the original lake, wouldn't that be falsifying info on the record application. That would be automatic disqualify as a state record for falsifying.

I heard the same "dock talk" at both tournaments we fished this weekend. I guess we will just have to wait and see. The lake mentioned does hold pigs, but...

If it's official, it'd be announced on the DNR site. Looks like it's another story, just like every year.

Hey guys I'm the one that caught it but I chose not to officially register it. It weighed 9-8 on my de-liar. I didn't think to take any pictures until after I'd already ate it! Oops!

How could you have caught it when I did?

It was 10-12 and I decided to let it go as it was illegall hooked (not in the mouth).

Funny, someone claims they caught a world's record bass and used a simular story. The only picture they took was the guy "straight arming" a bass. Nice fish, but the straight arm made it look silly. And, not a world record.

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.
