Slump Buster

7 posts in this topic

Well sort of......

Been on a dry spell lately and it sure was nice to remove my own hook from a fish for a change last night.

Still haven't been able to put a good pattern together on these fish, sporadic and spread out. When you do find a fish though it seems like the same rod gets hit over and over again. We've been referring to that rod as being "in the slot". Now if you are able to cast out and hit "the slot in the slot", you might as well not even put you rod in the holder.......right Aanderud? smile

Back to the slumpbuster, I say sort of because it was only about 15lbs, and as I jumped into my truck to go home, I found an orange colored primate in my passenger seat frown

Well it can't make it any worse. I have had that monkey for a while now and it isn't working for me so I thought I would give him a change of scenery.

Please give him a good home.

By the way, he likes to have his belly rubbed.

He likes his ears rubbed also Darren. Hang him from your rod and good things will happen to you.

Darren, are you bringing the monkey along tonight? Might as well. Last time he was in my boat he was tied to my rod holder. Put him on yours and it could be a whole different story.

I also wanted to mention that if you see a smallish maybe 14 inch tire floating downstream past you, and you decide at the last minute to reel in fast and cast out really really far to try to catch it, and you just miss by a wee bit -- you might want to reel up some of that line instead of just leaving it there. Because when a fish does hit, having 80 yards of line out takes forever to reel in, and the dinks just aren't worth it. smile

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work.
