Weekend Plans

20 posts in this topic

Anyone with fun things lined up for the weekend where we should expect a report from?

I was going to go this afternoon, but the near-huricane winds and impending weather this evening (if they're right), made me reconsider. With 2 days of fronts, I'm not sure what this will do to fishing, I think I'm sticking Metro and will go muskie or bass. Bassin' has been very good lately......

Weather permitting I'll be on FL tomorrow even though I have more confidence on other metro lakes right now. I fished it for the first time in years last week and it was a lot of fun to be on "new" water.

Right with you there Cjac. Looking out the window right now watching the trees in my yard bend at a 45 degree angle......hopefully the wind will die down and make fishing a little bit easier. Muskies have been slow all over. Got an email from Dick Pearson and he says the fishing on LOTW has been very slow, but a couple of big fish were caught yesterday. If possible, I will be out on Miltona again on Saturday, possibly Alexander on Sunday. Not looking for much action with the weather being the way that it has been lately. However, Only working Mon/Tuesday next week, and then it is 5 days of solid muskie fishing. Full moon on Friday, so fishing should be good, if we can get some stable weather patterns. crazy

Probably hit WB early tomorrow morn if the wind lets up or I'm thinking about making a run up to Rush. Never fished it for ski's before.

how about this weekend? I have tried to fish for muskies for a few years now and have only managed to boat one. My buddy and I were thinking of going to bald eagle, but I have never caught a single one out there, seeing if anyone is going and willing to give some pointers. Thanks

With how much pressure there has been out there this year I'd wear a hard hat so you don't get hurt by falling lures. Stick with high contrast colors - as for spots or patterns I haven't been there much in the past couple weeks so I don't know what the warming temps have done.

I'm going to fish the third shift on WB tomorrow night - I don't have the ambition to fight heat or crowds on Saturday.

Right, we are thinking friday night now as well. Any lures work better on bald eagle vs. others?

Historically I've caught more fish on WTD topwaters - that said I haven't even gotten a blow up on them this year. A Sledge has been best this year in open water adjacent to weedlines.

I'm going metro muskies somewhere tomorrow, location pending on partner availibility and the bosses departure time from work! Might end up West side, either pure-strain pending on launch parking or tigers.

Sat & Sun has me visiting the family cabin, chasing brown and green bass. My nephew had a mixed bag of nice fish, both species last weekend, in the 16-18 inch range. Pretty sweet area, and likely no one else has hit it. Not easy to access, but the return is high!

Me and dad heading up to Lake Vermillion. Hoping it's not as windy as last weekend! Hopefully it will be pretty good, but from the sounds of it, the bite ain't going the strongest. We'll give her a shot atleast!

For those looking at Bald Eagle this weekend, remember that the launch is closed on Saturday for a big water ski show they are having out there.

Hey Tipp, did Scepaniak put you on any fish?

You had to ask....

Rescheduled cause of forecasted strong storms, damaging winds, and hail. Well it ended up being gorgeous and he called tonight saying his buddy went to the weed bed he was gonna bring me and pulled a 52.5 and 56! Gotta love it.

Although luck did turn my way tonight. I just went out around home and pulled a 49. Put a pic up in photo thread.

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
