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

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
