It was slow, but the bites were there. And we found the sweet spot in that spot as well, for future fishing! Thanks Tom, it was fun!

Maybe due to the water being a bit dirtier or the moon phase or the storms. Tonight could be the night.

Lots of runs, only one fish in the boat.

Had we brought our "A" game we could've boated 8 fish smirk

That Carver Clean-up Karma has to come back sometime this weekend though smile

I am sure it will! I made like 5 outs last night, I was swinging and striking out almost at every at bat frown , if someone was on shore they may have thought I was just swinging the pole around to keep mosquitos away wink

We had the majority of our runs early last night. Seems they just would hit it and then leave.

Went 3 for 4 last night, with a good sized channel being the highlight of the evening.

Doubtful. frown

All I know is I gotta get out and start fishing more. Got a lot of catching up to do in the flat division. Getting out once a week, maybe twice if I was lucky during the prespawn killed me. It's still killing me actually. That was pretty much weekend only. cry Probably should have entered some of those earlier flats to get a point base to start from, but didn't. Its all right, none of them were all that big. Netted some nice ones for guests and non KOTC'ers so far this season though. crazy

Hopefully I'll be cattin' 3-4 nights a week soon. Even if it requires me fishing solo.

As for the walleye in my avatar, that was caught while fishing for flats on pool 4. Probably won't last to long. Planning on changing it up soon. smirk

Flaco, you'll have to start jumping in with us if you find yourself solo.

The flats bit early for my boat last night too. It did seem that alot of the fish would hit it and quit it later on. The channels kept us busy later on.

Thanks again for taking me and Scott out last night, Eddie. It was a lot of fun under that full moon even though it was a little slow. Maybe we will have to go out again soon if you have some room in your boat, afterall, I am still looking for my first flat.

    •   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!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
