Weekend plans....

Recommended Posts

Wednesday night....close enough to be thinking about weekend plans.

I'm looking at a combo bass & 'ski trip to East/West Rush on Saturday, then picking one of a few metro lakes on Sunday for 'skis, either pure or tigers.

Little tip: Metro lakes are pretty empty when there's a Vikes game on!

What's everyone else looking at?

I can pick you up at the airport and we can head to 'tonka, as you'll fly in over it.......tell the Mrs you were delayed.

Cali trips suck, done it too many times, not a lot of Esox love in So Cal.....

Men's weekend golf tourny in WI, no fishing but plenty of drinking and partying. No complaints here it's one of the few weekends a year when I can get away with my buddies and throw down like we are kids again.

Good luck to those who get on the water.

North, somewhere, in the never-ending search...

After our weekends I have to go back to the work schedule just to get some sleep. If I was only 10 years younger I could probably get by on 3-4 hrs a night like I used to!

i think i'll go down to northfield on saturday and shore/wade fish. theres a little spillway dam just below water st. downtown. take as many minnows as i want and still run out pretty much everytime. catch a mess of every kind of fish too, carp, white bass, crappie, flathead, channel, sauger, walleye, northern, muskie on occation, suckers, nice smallies are aplenty, and other fish too. i use lures also. place is amazing for numbers of fish, and there's some real decent ones if i get them before a smaller one grabs on.every cast is at least a hit... only drawback is the water is a good 15 feet or so below, lol. but the water should be shallow enough i can go in the water at 2nd st. and walk down (up but down at that point), kind of weird walking south going upstream., and fish from under the water st. bridge. who knows maybe i'll see my old buddy ''huge snapper'' again. head looks like a freakin' tree trunk. sometimes he pops up a foot away and says hi. that's always fun. anyway i'm in for some action this weekend, good luck everybody.

I will be fishing Ottertail and Becker Counties Sunday through Thursday while I wind down the lake place for the season. Probably have an empty seat a couple days. Holler if anyone in the western part of the state want to beat the water into submission. copterjohn@gmail.com

Work frown

September is a washout for me. My truck was at the body shop the last week from getting rear-ended= no tow vehicle. Then a week straight of 12 hr shifts followed by a 2 week elk hunt in Idaho.

Will hopefully be hitting Miltona sometime this weekend. Daughter has a tennis tournament all day on Saturday, so with any luck, it will be done early enough to try and sneak out for couple of hours on Sat. If not, have to try and do it on Sunday before the work week starts again.

    • 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
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
