I guess!! laughlaugh

He's just a great walleye guy. He has a knack for it. If I had as much time of the water as he has had though I probably would too. I have some catching up to do. Like probably 40 years worth!!

You just have to go fishing with us gals, then you catch Walleyes. Must be our female magnetism.

Lisa:

I usually run the motor, watch the map, check the weedline and trolling path, and especially I watch the sonar. I work hard to keep my boat at the right depth range so my passengers can catch the fish. I love it when they get the fish, and of course I don't because I'm too busy to fish! It is all about location and boat control! A real fisherman is one who can put his fishing partners on top of the fish without them realizing it.

I'd enjoy having you and some of your buds in the boat with me!

I know it's hard to run the boat, stay on the edge of a good break, watch your depth, make sure you're passengers aren't fishing under the boat or getting any lines in the prop!!! Too bad I wasn't doing any of that technical stuff AND STILL not catching fish!!! blushblushblushgrin

Thanks for the invite H2O!

If I'm just going out for the day, I usually head west to Wright County/Annandale area. It's a short drive and great fishing. In fact, I'm taking tomorrow off work so I can get out there at sunrise. Quite often I go alone and have an open seat.

Actually, I would like to fill 2 open seats for a run over to Algoma. The salmon have started biting and they are running big this year! 20 pounders are fairly common. Steelhead and lakers too. Any takers? I usually camp at one of the campgrounds.

Lisa - must be why I didn't catch anything on Mille Lacs. I was too busy making sure that everyone else was on fish.

OK and I changed my avatar from ice fishing to August fishing on Leech Lake. August 2007 - a 28.5" walleye.

So - I can catch 'em!!!

Nice fish Char!! Great looking avatar too.

I would rather sit in my Otter than on the boat for sure. I think it'd be great to get all the ladies on the ice!! grin

I would like to if the winds and storms keep away long enough but might have to find a small lake if the winds get to rough.

Ya I see winds on Winnie in the mid teens out of the NW. Do you usually go out of High Banks. We have a cabin real close to High Banks and will be up there this weekend for my daughters 21st Birthday. Just checking to see if you will be in the neighborhood.

No that could be challenge. Winds on Winnie is how my boat developed water circulation under the flooring. I guess we won't know until tomorrow AM.

Hey Jim or Lisa, Did you get out on Saturday on Winnie. hehehehe

Such a beautiful day with all the rain and then the hurricane came through and knocked down some power lines. Surfing on Winnie, got to like it.

No we didn't!! Did you? We just fished smaller local lakes and went early so we could get off the lake before the weather came through. Guess what though?? I got skunked again!! But Jim got a beauty!

Not on Saturday, It was a little bit rough out there on the east side and the rain all afternoon. Then when the hurricane hit around 4:00pm. 3 very large gusts came up (as if it wasn't windy enough.) Knocked down some power lines and we were out until about 8:30, which was quick up there. Got out Sunday around 11:00 and fished a couple of humps with no luck. Hit the 3rd hump and found them. Caught 8 in about 3 hours. 21" the biggest and 2 were in the slot. Had my nephew out and he just started walleye fishing a year ago, so we had to get him started on decent walleyes. He got a 18" 20' and a 21". Way to go Dano.

It was a little rough on Sunday too.

Sounds like your in a walleye (non catching rut). Try washing your hands using the sand and water from the lake b-4 you go out.

    • Nah....walleyes would be hard-line Republicans;  conservative with little or no imagination, terrified of doing something new or different or pushing ahead with anything not tried before. Show me a 6-pound walleye and I'll show you Barry Goldwater with scales  or Ronald Reagan when he was not napping. PF is right, catching a walleye,  even a nice big fat one, is about as exciting as a naked tussle with Rosie O'Donnell or dragging a bag of seaweed into your boat. We used to catch some really big ones in MT and after a bit we learned that the big perch fought better and were way more tasty!  No kidding, those perch....12-15" were way better eating.  But then we were catching them from cold clear water. But if you are really new to fishing and don't possess a lot of skill by all means become a walleye fisherman-anybody can do it.
    • Well it's "Throw Down" time! For years I have kept a bag of sunflower seeds in the cup holder of my SUV to nibble on as I ride along. In the last few weeks since about the last weekend up north Deer hunting I would come in and think, man I really down some seeds, that was a pretty new bag? Then checking my oil one day noticed some empties under the hood!  Um, someone's having a party? Went to pick up my Deer at the butcher today and again found the new bag almost empty! Checked back seat floor and found a few sprinkles on the floor! That's it, don't mind the little guy along for a ride but don't touch my seeds! Thought about setting up the trail cam to plan some strategy, but just went with the blind two trap set front and back seat floor. Report when I get some results!
    • Read it again grasshopper, I never said any such thing.     Pence LOST jobs, Johnson gained jobs and the money didn't come out of revenue that was already being produced. Johnson's money came out of NEW tax revenue that would have never been earned if they didn't do the deal.   I don't know what that quote is you posted but I never said any of that.
    • Catching a walleye is about as exciting as reeling in a bath towel. Not sure how that justifies being an elitist. Bullheads put up a better fight.    I always considered walleyes to be the liberals of the fish world. 
    • When was the last time? 1835? That was the last time the national debt was paid off.     How would you know that? We've never taken a trillion dollars off the debt EVER.      
    • Lo, many years ago I tried something similar to deal with feral cats at a house that I was renting.   (next door neighbor fed them, and they would come in our garage or climb up under the hood of our cars.)   Covered a piece of cardboard with aluminum foil and wired it to one side of a 700 volt power transformer.  Other side was wired to a half open can of sardines insulated from the foil by a thin layer of plastic.   Primary went to line power.   No cat touched the sardines so long as the electricity was on (several days).   When I turned it off to see what would happen, they ate everything they could get out of the can in a short time.   I hope mice aren't as sensitive or smart. 
    • Pence is governor of Indiana.   Johnson was governor of New Mexico.   Why do you claim Johnson's deal was local, and Pence's was not?   Pence kept actual jobs, Johnson was chasing hypothetical jobs.   Pence benefited residents of his state.  Johnson benefited folks coming in from out of state...     
    • I would avoid one with a touch screen and stick with buttons.  You cannot work a touch screen with gloves on.  I guess it depends if you where gloves.  I have one of each and my Garmin with buttons is the one that gets used.
    • With any luck, we will get out of the debt issue with a period of moderate inflation, just like we did the last time.  5% inflation takes a trillion dollars a year off the debt.   Add 3-4 percent constant dollar growth, and in under a decade the ratio of debt to GDP is cut in half, even allowing for some deficits along the way.   Janet Yellen has already signaled she is willing and ready to let the economy run "hot", ie inflation exceeding the 2% target.     The trick, of course, is to pull it off without anything blowing up.     Now all that remains is to make it happen.
