Best Multi Species Day

14 posts in this topic

I'll get this started:

2 hours alone on the Zumbro near Mazeppa,MN yielded 1 or more of the following species:

Northern

Walleye

Sauger

SM Bass

Channel Cat

Flathead Cat

Rainbow

Carp

Redhorse

White Sucker

Sheep Head

Mooneye

I thought that was a pretty good multi outing considering it was one body of water in just over a couple hours using only crawlers. Anyone else have a decent multi list to share?

That is a great day. Always nice to catch multi species. I haven't hit a list like that in a very long time.

Paceman, that is my typical list on a good day, but with bass split into smallmouth and largemouth and add in crappies. That is on my little lake up north.

When my wife and I fish we always have an informal "species" contest. Last time out I got walleye, northern, perch, rock bass and small mouth bass. She just got those walleyes so I beat her 5 to 1.

That looks like a full day of fun. I'm gonna try something like that. Instead of pheasant I'll be going after grouse. Camp next to the lake and its just the matter of choosing fish or hunt.

Then for dinner walleye and grouse.

I once shot a limit of geese, a limit of ducks, and caught a limit of walleyes. That was a good day.

With the fly rod on the dock Sunday night and the spinning rod Monday night (or a 24 hour period) I managed to catch the following species: perch, bluegill, pumpkinseed, bluegill-pumpkinseed hybrid, black crappie, largemouth bass, white bass, walleye, and muskie.

They were on different bodies of water. Had I been fishing more and actually tried to catch the bullheads I might have been able to get all the species possible. Two different lures caught all those fish.

    • Actually, you just chose not to.

    • I've had a Marcum camera for many years and have found it extremely educational.  When I take new anglers on the ice, they love watching the fish.  Never had the camera spook a fish.

       

      I used a Marcum battery-powered panner to rotate the camera, and that helps identify my lure.  However, you also have to be pretty confidant with the depth of your jig, so that it will show up on the camera.

       

      I've found the camera of limited value during the summer, because it's constantly moving up and down, and a little side to side.  Even if I can find my jig, it's not for long.  What I use the camera for during soft water season is to identify bottom structure and get a general idea what's down there.  

       

      During hard water season, I use it primarily to see bites before they happen.  Not only do I know exactly what's near or looking at my jig, but I can see when they're actually going after it.  I have pulled the hook away from fish that were obviously too small, and also been able to set the hook on a bite before I could feel it.

       

      I love my flasher, but I have out-fished buddies with my camera.

    • Now that's funny.  I chose not to answer a ignorant question that an elitist like yourself could care less the answer to.  The only reason you want an answer to that question is to spend the next week trying to find some ignorant reason he/she is a bad choice. #rentfree
    • But you couldn't articulate who your favorite Trump picks for justices were, or why.
    • Many of the resorts / cabins where I stay on weekend fishing outings do not have a fish cleaning house. I also do not like the smell of dead fish from the cleaning process in my home. My wheel house is a fishing shack only, non-sleeper, which I take off the ice each night. It has both A/C and propane heat so I usually plug it into an AC outlet at night.   I decided to build a retractable / drop-down fish cleaning table 17” x 48” up and out of the way while on the ice and a warm place to clean fish. I use clear news print between the my fish cleaning board and the table to eliminate the need to wash the table every time I use it. Functionally works well, still needs some finish touches, paint, stain, rust treatment. I can also see many uses for this table while on the Ice. Fish Cleaning Table.mp4
    • Big win for the team today. Not many folks thought they would go into Carolina and leave 3-0. If this offense can get their sh$t together this may be a fun year. Defense is the real deal.
