Better night on the water

Recommended Posts

Well.....after taking a few days off from the Muskies, gave it the ole college try tonight. Had a pretty decent night on the water. First off, my 7 year old son was fishing with me and he caught about a 5lb bucket mouth on a Harasser. Right after that I raised a nice fish on a Bobbie bait, and 3 casts later had a nice fish hit at boatside. That one got off, I don't know how. Didn't see anything else for a while and right at dusk had another fish cream my Topraider. Don't know what happened there, but never got hooks into it. Fished until well after dark and had another fish hit the same Topraider, set the hooks, it came out of the water, flopped around and spit the hooks. Pretty frustrating, but at the same time it seems like they are finally starting to heat up!! Will be back at it tomorrow night. Gotta take momma and the kiddy's out for panfish in the early afternoon, but then it will be time to drop them off and head to the muskie pond!!!! smile

    • Wetting a line for the 1st time today. Gonna hit it hard this weekend.
    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
