I Am Going To Make A Bold Statement!

7 posts in this topic

I think Channels are still under going spawn or are still in spawn attitude/patters.

Hit a tried and true low water post spawn channel hole on Friday night on the Miss. North and only got one run in our group. I checked my records from last year and the same (close to it) Friday night last year, between two of us, we landed 13 and countless runs and swing and misses.

I know the water is up a little, but not that much.

I know fishing is fishing, but with the Miss. North channels, they have been pretty predictable with their spots for many years. We gave them everything as far as bait.

All I know is you can hit this hole pre and during spawn and they are far and few between. Hit it during the post spawn and into fall they are stacked like cord wood.

A little back ground on this hole. It is one of the deepest holes for miles, located on an outside bend with rip rap on the outside bank and about half of the hole. The hole extends out into the main channel also. That’s what make this spot a prime location for channels post spawn. When they are done spawning, they come and hang out to feed and do what ever they do.

If we go back out tonight or Monday night (I wish with the stuff I got going), we are going to try a pre or spawn spot to see what happens.

I figure good info can come from a skunk night also and maybe it was just luck. Wait, with Miss. North channels, luck is not needed grin. Now to find an 18-20lb'er this time of year might take some luck and a little witch craft on the side whistle.

Good luck!

I think it is dude!

Did not even get a 4lb'er crazy

We will hit it up in a week or two. I wanted to go tonight, but a landscape project kept me going till dark.

I was how ever listing to Bear Farts and Fish Gutz to night and they where saying every species this year is off by 3 weeks. Mark and Larry do seem to know their stuff, but three weeks could be a push for cats.

Rockman,

You should be privy to this spot grin.

I am intrigued now on this situation. Maybe it was just an off night, but we always get fish in this spot when the time is right.

All though I will be occupied coming up quick for awhile, but I am all most ready to bring the boat out up hear in search of these channels. Plus I would like to hit some spots I have not in years, that have produced large channels. I got one of those River Runners on order and might have to test it out up in these waters wink

Give it another week with no rain. I bet that spot will start lighting up.

Flows are dropping rapidly

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
