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

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
