I shared the boat with crazyice and another buddy last night on Pool 5. First time I've ever chassed flatties on pool 5. First spot looked great on google earth and in person, but no fish. We didn't have a plan B after a brief discussion and recollecting some past readings/research/tips/etc we landed on spot 26.

5 minutes after casting out at our new spot I got hit by this 26.4lber.

She wasn't done with the spawn quite yet and made major mess in my recently cleaned boat.

I felt bad for her loosing some spawn in the boat, but once we realized she was leaking we got her back in the water immediately.

Not 2 minutes after getting my line back in the water I got hit on my other rod and lost it half way to the boat.

Ended up with 4 total flatties last night with 3 being dinks. Also got a surprise right before we packed it up.

17" Sauger

Wow, those eggs are huge! ANd I can't believe that sauger ate a bullie that is 30% or more of his weight/length. That's crazy.

Nice job boating a handful and a good sized one! Hardly anyone is getting the 20 pounders or better lately!

I got one last night that as soon as I pulled the hook out, "bam" the release began grin.

It would have been my third flat registerd, but when those eggs are rolling out (minus the mess), I would rather get them back quick and thats what we did. Plus it was no fish that would have got me any wheres on the KOTC.

Great images Tyler. Maybe a good boat cleaning is the trick to pick up the bite in the boat grin It kind of seemed to work for me.

Same reason the sauger looks smaller than 17 inches. It's all in the hold. I've seen some 12 pound cats that look like 30 pounders because of the way they're held.

I still can't believe how much eggs is in that boat! They're huger huge!

    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
    • We just got shut out down by Caledonia also so don't feel bad and we've been turkey hunting since 1980.  We were on private land also but found the birds still flocked up.  We had flocks of 12 - 15 birds we were trying to work and it didn't work.  2 out of 3 could have shot jakes and we all had plays that just did not work out.  That's turkey hunting.
    • I have mapped but never submitted it to be processed. However I have downloaded maps from insight and used them. They work good if your willing to go thru the extra step to download them. If I remember correctly you will have to choose them in chart options or it will just show your regular insight map. The real nice thing is they are free!   I mostly use Navionics I find I like them better than the insight maps & its easier to download user generated maps.
    • Do you know if the GPS tracker part works without cell service? I think that is going to be my biggest issue, I don't know if I can track another phone from my phone without cell signal.
    • Come on BB, you don't have to be positive or a homer to realize this team is light years better than they were 3/4 years ago. The results haven't changed, but that isn't saying they haven't improved. 3/4 years ago we had young guys like Brodin, Haula, Coyle, Nino just getting their wings. This year they had career years in many cases. That is precisely what we have been hoping/waiting for them to do. The way you talk it seems like you forget that the NHL playoffs are best of 7 series. That's a long grind for any team to make and you have to have a lot of luck and some guys playing out of their mind to make it to the finals. I'm not happy they lost in 5 to the Blues, but I'm not giving up on this team either. They do need to make changes, which will reshape this team for next season. Pump some more youth into the lineup and we could certainly have some up and down next year. Like I said before, go back and see our predictions for where they would finish at the beginning the of the season. I am pretty sure I said they would finish like 5th place. Finishing 2nd all things considered, was a pleasant surprise, but guess what, everyone whined about it! LOL
    • Possible but I'm not sure who owns what patent.
    • For those of you that have not seen this yet. This will be making it's way into my frog box    
    • Have any of you guys tried the Stanley ribbit frogs?  I picked up a couple of packs at my local wally world for a $1 a pack.   On a side note I saw a video of Jacob Wheeler talking about using a buzzbait and putting a biffle bug on it instead of a skirt, he mentioned that they hit it better and hold on to it a little longer since there is some mass there.  I wonder if a zoom horny toad would work for that as well since the biffle bugs are expensive.
    • HAs anyone here used this software to map your lakes?  Has anyone downloaded the lakes that are on the shared cloud?  I have a hook 7 and some of the lakes around have been mapped, it would be nice to download them and use that instead of the other map.
