Boilerguy's 1st flathead

31 posts in this topic

Rumor has it that the Boilerguy, southern Minnesota's finest, will be attacking the Minnesota River this weekebd in search of his first mudeye. Lets all cheer him on as he attempts to become a true riverrat.

This spring Eric got hooked on sturgeon and now, the mudeye's.

southern Minnesota's finest

At what?!?!??!

Yes, I'll be on the river this weekend. Looking forward to it. I've fished my share of rivers in my life (Miss, Red, Rainey, Rum, Black, Snake, Nile, Thames) But I've never fished the Minnesota, or caught a flathead before.

Just in case the fishings slow, I'll have a couple days worh of PBR in the cooler for shore lunch. grin

Lets see here... you can't make a post titled Boilerguy's 1st Flathead when he hasn't caught one yet. You might have just jinxed the boat. Anyone seen that monkey?

We will get fish only it may be on Friday night. I planned it for 2 nights thinking that could happen. If all fails and fishing get tough, we will just pour a little PBR on the bait and that should do it.

I'm monkey enough for the boat.

Good Luck on your quest BG. The bite has been hit or miss the past few weeks.

I had the monkey along with last night and wouldn’t ya know it that I caught a Flat less than 5 minutes after anchoring.

Too bad it took 3 hours to get another one.

Monkey good or bad????

I didn’t take any chances, so he became a stowaway once again grin Tag your it.

I was wondering where he ended up. Maybe we should give him to BG. Maybe BG can change the monkey's luck! Mutual luck-bringing?

I got skunked last night for the first time in a while. Not like I've been catching monsters, but at least I've had some small fish action lately, which gets a guy's hope up. But last night, I had not even a single bite! That is the slowest outing I've seen all season (I guess by definition, getting ZERO bites would be the slowest...it's hard to get NEGATIVE bites in one night). I guess the boat had 3 bites total, and 3 fish in the boat, so it's not a total bust, but all of the fish were under 9 lbs (funny, the biggest of the 3 was a channel cat!). And usually I'm used to a bit more hit and run action, or swing and miss. Heck, usually I miss a couple-three bites myself!

On a different note....totally UNRELATED to the monkey finding a new home...Shamu, will you by any chance be at the KOTC gathering? smile

We might have some monkey business in the boat but NO monkey in the boat.

No monkey needed in my boat. Fish are still coming in the boat, but several have been swung in bass style lately. Maybe I can stick a big one again this year at the gathering.

God, aint that the truth. Starting to feel like Jimmy Houston out there. With the cats swinging over the side of the boat.

    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
