I'm on the board.

Been doing too much work on the cabin. Boat only got wet for the 3rd time this year yesterday. Ran out of material around 2:30 so decided to load up and go fishing somewhere close, which in this case was Wapogasset. Even left the muskie rods home.


My old man got on the board too:


Both of those are from the first batch of stocked fish (2006). So for us Wisconsin fisherman things look good for having another lake in the future.

Also caught this (23"), some people tell me they are hard to catch...


And just a storm in the distance taken Sunday night. Too bad the camera focused on our shoreline restoration project.


With the fly rod on the dock Sunday night and the spinning rod Monday night (or a 24 hour period) I managed to catch the following species: perch, bluegill, pumpkinseed, bluegill-pumpkinseed hybrid, black crappie, largemouth bass, white bass, walleye, and muskie. Giving cjac's multispecies effort a run for the money. I did miss out on the three types of bullhead and a northern though.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
