Dang.....How did these pics get on my Camera?

Thanks Darren for a fun morning out! We put the measuring stick on it in the water and came up with 44 "ish" inches, close enough. Nice fish, fun fish, and a really nice release.

Fish came off a white bucktail...nothing special, just a white single blade Nug Tackle buck.

JR: Thanks! No kidding! A single blade buck can still work! These Nug Tackle tails are cool, tied with a big cone of true bucktail, almost weedless........ fish like 'em.

Not a really big fish, but fun to be out with another FMer (dtro) for the morning who's an avid catfisherman and all around angler. Simply a fun morning and a nice fish to remember it by.

John: Leech was fun, saw a lot of fish, just no eaters. Of course, nice weather for fun usually doesn't mean fun for fins.

and I almost got to smile for the camera myself smile

that was until someone stole my follow wink

Kidding of course

Just seeing that first fish was enough to make it a great day.

I think that 44 is a bit conservative too, little closer to 45,

Nice fish Chris. I sorta got the impression you switched to only fish with whiskers or big mouths!! smile I think that's my next move - I went 0-for 12 hours this weekend so I'm happy to see someone else did better!

Nice fish Justin! Looks like a great day out with Luke. The time is approaching to start seeing each other out in the north metro for sure!

Erik: Had a lot of fun this summer doing different stuff for sure, but now we're getting into the good stuff for 'skis! Still, I may have to make a couple sturgeon runs to the Croix to keep up the variety!

Fish are starting to turn on, been seeing way more active fish the last 3-4 times out. That night with Luke we caught those two and the other guy with us had a bigger fish on and it came unbuttoned. Saw about 10 more.

Sunday went out and a buddy had an upper 40's hooked up and acted like a stuck pig, making runs away from the boat then right at the boat, then came out of the water, tail danced and tossed his modified bionic bucktail. I had a low 40's take a nip, then chase on the 8 about 3 times taking 2 or 3 swipes before taking off. These cool nights should help. Finally after a season of frustration they seem to be hungry. We should try and get out one of these mornings.

I rarely fish in more than 8 feet of water. However my buddies fish on Sunday came right off a weed edge that was maybe 10 feet.

Now, CJAC, change that avatar already!!!! I think you look more appealing and reputable when you're holding a muskie when compared with other fishes grin

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
