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...

    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
