Good Weekend

22 posts in this topic

We had a pretty good weekend. Four fish boated and 1 other lost, including Hunter's biggest to date - a 52" beauty. Three of the 4 came on pink and black double tens. Added 1 pic of the big girl about to swim away.

Hey John, almost glad you didn't call! It was just over 22". Not much of a gut, just built big. Hooked in the eight boatside, she went ballistic, but he played her perfectly. His net man almost screwed it up, but it worked out.

Nice work boys. It sure looks like they grow them bigger up north. I'm glad you guys are sliming the Ranger up good this year. That 52 is awfully nice!

Yep, I think that the fishing is starting to kick in good now. The fishing should be good this weekend after a week of hot weather.

I caught it on Saturday at 9:15pm. The moon was so bright I actually saw her hit on the first turn. Definately the best musky fishing experience i've ever had.

As b1gf1sh1 mentioned, I did only teach him everything he knows, not everything I know. He must have learned some on his own smile

He already knows he's better than me, but lets me catch some now and then to keep me interested.

    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
