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.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
