Late Summer Perching

11 posts in this topic

Got a call from "Z" around 5ish this afternoon and said "Were getting some perch on the Mi Kong want to go?" In a flash I was gone perching rods in hand and plenty of panfish assasins. Didn't take us long to get into them and we caught 41 keepers and I boated two walleyes one legal and a throw back. Not bad for a couple hours fishing. We had a good chop out on the water and we made the move from 1/16 to 1/8 oz. jigs to keep the plastics close to the bottom. Wecaught twice as many with the throwbacks. Had a ball Z and thanks for the call. This is my last week umpiring everything wraps up on Sunday afternoon. heading to the State Fair Saturday with Momma for a Journey, Cheap Trick, Heart concert.Her'e a couple of fast pics from this evening..

Thanks for the on lake update Jay... Things were heating up as we were talking but the heat got to us fast it was flipping hot out there and no matter how cool we tried to get it was too much even with biting perch to take. mad I was about ready to go for a dip before we had enough and bailed... Got the tops of my legs face and neck cooked good. Had a fantastic time with Tuzzy and Z. Z joined us around 10:30 and stayed after we departed. We caught about 20-25 nice big perch and a nice eater walleye for our efforts so on Lake Desert a pretty good day. cool Talked to a guy at the launch that was fishing near us and he only caught one perch, lol. Here's some picks from the trip. Next is a cool down shower and relax until dinner.

Aaron I will look for you and the wife by the beer tent tomorrow Bub..

Gerat job guys. I seen you at the concert, but it was too loud to get your attention. We were right above the stair way. It was a good show. The wife got too see Heart, and I have to say they put on a good show. I was a little dissappointed with Cheap Trick. And Journey did a great job. The new singer sounds just like Steve Perry.

Yeah Heart was real good, but I didn't see much of Journey because this girl and her toothless friends stood in front of us and just would not sit down, after three times asking they paid the ultimate price and brought home the the minty smell of Longhorn on there backsides of blue there jeans the boyfriend was so trashed he through up his hands witha 1/3 of a cup of beer and nailed me in the shorts with it. When I told him what hedid he tried to hug me and say he was sorry... wrong move as I threw a 1/3 of cup of beer on his shorts. Other than that it was great time and watching Joan Jett was pretty cool too earlier in the day...

That stinks! We has a toothless wack job over by us, but he was far enough away not to bother us. The woman in front of me wouldn't sit down during Journey, but I didn't mind her much! whistlewink

Tood and I played hookie today looking for some perch and didn't find many at all. We started early and caught a few crappies and a couple of nice sunnies and found a few small whie bass. Still good to be out on the water instead of being at work. Wind was out of the east early in the morning and flipped south east. Conditions were over cast and spotty rain all morning. Water temp has dropped about 8 degrees since last weekend so were getting there. Took a few photo's...

    • Branson is sort of in a transition, since they weren't going to survive catering to a population that's mostly dead now.   I've heard it's getting more interesting for people under the age of 75.     I grew up about 45 minutes from there.   We used to cruise through there on Friday nights and chat up bored out of their mind girls on vacation with grandma and grandpa.     The surrounding area is beautiful, once you get off the highway and away from the billion billboards.

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks.
