Fathers day Bassin'

1 post in this topic

Me, Dad, and my sister went out for some fathersday fishing on a small lake near his house. I started out with a swimshad in the shallow clear water with no bites. I switched to a power tube on a darter head and soon had a good bass over 2 pounds. I tried to lift it in by the line and snapped it off losing my bait.

I got another one kinda small, then Dad got into the action getting a good 16 incher on a 7 inch power worm.

Then Nanc got a fish. she was using the same bait as me, but had less luck getting a dinky bass.

We got a few more smaller fish and I missed a few good bites. Then I scored a nice bass just under 18 inches.

5 minutes later I had a bite near a dock and thought I had him hooked, it felt like a tiny one so I really didn't reel him too hard. Then I saw it was a big fish just swimming towards the boat so I did'nt feel the weight, but it wasn't hooked and just spit the bait.

Dad cast his worm in that area, and soon saw the same fish I had on swimming towards his bait! The line tightened up quick and the fight was on! Soon we had it in the net, the big fish of the day at 18 inches! Way to go Dad!

We tried for some pike out deeper, Nanc getting one on a spinnerbait. I got a little one on a bass magic minnow.

Happy casts

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
