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

I'm in the same boat as you Brett. Working until tuesday then 5 days off with the full moon. Got Steve Scepaniek booked Wed. on Mille Lacs too. Hoping for a good 5 days!

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.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!

    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
