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.

Not privy to any of your conversations on this spot,I can fathom an almost accurate guess where this hole might be. grin

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

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
