Holy Giant Laker Batman!

22 posts in this topic

Did you gals read about that 49.4lb lake trout caught by a Hibbing mother and daughter team on Lake Nipigon in Ontario? They caught it mid-July. Here's a pic from the Duluth News-Tribune: wpxtrout0824.jpg

It took them 45 mins to get it in the boat! Isn't that an awesome catch?

Yes, it’s coming back to me now……

I’m fighting this fish and this sled comes flying up. Rider gets off walks over, says HI introduces himself then asks for a Beer. Well the nice guy I am, I reach over for one to give to him and take my attention off that huge fish for one second…….and then it was gone.

Without skipping a beat, the guy then asks for a smoke, so I sent him over to you grin

That 50lber is still swimming. wink

The woman holding the fish works at one of the offices we support(computer systems) up here. Her mother was really excited to get the fish and she was pretty dare excited to see her mother get the fish.

Fish over 30 lbs have been caught from Bside. Divers report seeing lakers between 30 and 40 lbs. A 20-plus is caught every couple of years. Last year or the year before on spring opener, a guest at Camp Van Vac was fishing off the dock with dead cisco on the bottom and caught a 20 and a 17.

I think dtro's fish wasn't quite 50. You know how much bigger fish look in the water than they do once they're on the ice. winkwink

Sent her the link Friday...teasing her about being an "Internet Star",she thought it was pretty cool to be a topic on fishing forum.

Her co-worker(who I also sent the link to) who is also a good friend of hers outside of work said something that I can't post here about being an "Internet Star" and not exposing some body parts blush They can be interesting to work with whistleblushgrincool

The only body parts you have to expose when you post a fish like that on FM, upnorth, is her muscular arms to haul a fish like that in!! Yowzees!! laugh

    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
