We have been out to Bald eagle and have been doing well, a lot of ski's in the 45-48 range. Has antbody seen them over 50 out of there at all?

I had one on last Monday that had to be 50. i released a 40 earlier in the day and this one was in a totally different class. That said I've never caught a 50 - biggest so far is 44 so it may have really only been 44.5... smile

I've been out chasing on BE 4 times in the last week and got one follow from a real small guy. I must be doing something wrong.

No expert here but the fish I've seen have been deeper than normal - 10+ FOW - which is deeper than I've fished on that lake most years.

You're right on - 10 feet certainly isn't deep. I'm guessing its how I fish the lake, or maybe because of pressure I've changed things up a bit, but in the past 3 or 4 years I've contacted 80% of the fish in less than 5 feet on that lake. I also tend to get out pretty darn early as well - until I can get a jet-skier or wake-boarder to hit a Jackpot I tend to get off BE by about 9AM on weekends.

I had a 50-52 incher boatside earlier this year, but was bass fishing and it ended up snapping my line. I'm willing to go out to BE with someone and show them what seems to be working. My in-laws live right on BE, so they usually have an idea.

KingFisher1 - My in-laws live there too. Due West of the rock pile - 1st place on the north end of the lilly pads. Any chance they're neighbors?

If you're still offering I'd love to go out. I live in Roseville and bought a new boat this year so I spend most of my time on BE still. I've chased a little on WBL and FL but for overall fishing I still like BE.

    • Here is hoping for a dry October.
    • I didn't get the elm creek park hunt this year   I guess I will sit right outside the park and hope they chase them out again.
    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...
