Is there a bad day of fishing

13 posts in this topic

I believe I had my first. Got off work at 7AM so happy because I was going fishing. grin As soon as we hit the door my skin started to melt. cool But thats ok cuz I was going fishin!!! Got to Lake Monroe and another guy was stuck on the ramp so we dropped our boat in the parking lot and had to use my truck to pull out his boat and his truck, that was kinds funny. Anyhow we help this guy out and when we were ready to put our boat in the water 3 people pulled in front of us. b^$#@&(s mad So much for good samaritan. Well by the time we got in the water it was so hot and not even the tiniest breeze. frown Well my boys were having a good time not catching anything, I barely got to fish because I had to keep untangling their lines. Any how after we got home checked weather channel on line and the temp today was 91 they say it feels like 99. cry(I think they need to step out side again.) All in all I think i will wait till november when it starts to get down to 70's to go back out. As much as I hate to admit it... last night, my good day at work was better them my bad day fishing. smirk

I forgot to add the humidity is 52%

I spent approx 13 hours on the Minnesota river fishing for catfish with a good friend Saturday. No fish and that was a bummer but, the 13 hours seemed like only 3-4 fishing with Boilerchick, so no, a bad day of fishing is better for me than a day almost anywhere else.

Thanks for the good company Boilerchick and next time it will be better.

Oh man DeeDee!! You guys have some crazy heat down there!! Sure wish you could've boated ONE fish to save the day! That guy you helped probably caught his limit right? That'd be Murphy's Law, wouldn't it?! What do you fish for down there? What bait do you use?

I did not fish this weekend except for a coupla casts off the Moose Lake Beach dock with a leech and the MOST AWFUL ZEBCO combo I have ever laid hands on! That thing would not cast worth a darn. Maybe it was the operator but what do I expect when I pay $10 at Jurvelin Hardware? winkshockedgrin I DID catch a crayfish, 2 clams and a VERY long and wide horse leech

with my twin 6yr old nieces with the minnow scoop though. I had just a great weekend with my sisters and their families.

Harvey Lee, NO catfish? I've never actually FISHED with Boilerchick but I bet she's a hoot!! wink I'll have to go over and read the official results of your catfishing adventure yesterday. That's one breed of fish I don't know if I'll ever catch.

Sorry about that day out there Dee Dee. I think if it wasn't so dang humid down there, it would have been a much better day down there. I've spent my share of days on the water with little or no action and it still beets sitting in an office anytime.

Well we had clear sunny skies and it felt like someone was holding a torch over me. I have a fantastic sunburn to show for it. We went about 2 weeks ago and it was very cloudy, rainy but we had a great time and stayed out for hours and didnt fish.

Lisa - The only thing I've been successful catching are those UGLY Gar. Most of the lakes and the river here are "black water" I guess thats a nice way of saying nasty so if we do catch something its going back. I need to go read more of your tip's maybe that'll help. I think next time I go I will pay the $50 bucks and go deep sea fishing. At least they have a cabin to cool off in and its not as hot at the beach.

Sandman - Usually I would agree. This has to be the first time I didnt enjoy it.

Bad day of fishing?

Your joking right?

Part of what you described is why I've resorted to spending hours bobbing around in the river bottoms in the middle of the night. No crowds, no heat, no worries.....(ok well not many).

Lisa, that's enough of the dissin Mr Whiskers.

Trust me, once you go cat you never go back.

Do you ever get over to the coast?? There is some good fishing in the Indian and Banana rivers, and lots of people eat the snook and trout.

    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.    
    • After doing a little looking there are a lot of options to these things. Anyone know how that new V6 compares to the in line 6? Some of the stuff I would like is the bigger tires and because I would consider putting a plow on it a lower rear end gear. The Dana 44 rear axel would be nice and would want a hard and soft top. I'm in no hurry to get one so Ill wait till the right one comes around. There are a lot of them out there that never leave the tar. More options in the later models as far as transmissions to. So it also comes down to how much I want to spend on one and how late of a model to buy. Sure don't want to spend 35K on a new one.
    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....
