Weekend reports

6 posts in this topic

Sounds like some good weekend reports coming in.......nice weekend for propster and Hunter! How about everyone else?

I fished E/W Rush on Saturday, had fun bass fishing, they were up tight in the reeds, so it was kind of combat bass fishing. Rain got the best of us and we headed off before really doing any muskie fishing.

Sunday morning was WBL, and it was busy. Lots of guys throwing, and then around 10:00 the sailboats headed out. Had one nice follow and a couple pike, but that's it.

It stinks when they drop a waterski course on top of a nice deep weedline. Anyhow, there's a free tip, mark where the course is and you'll have a nice weedline to work! By 1:00 the lot and lake were cleared out, thnaks to the Vikes game.

How is it that Monday AM is always nice after a rainy weekend??

Fished Leech Friday and Saturday. Managed only two follows and had one miss a jerk bait at least five times back to the boat.

Fished a metro lake yesterday afternoon in rain and only managed one bass on a bucktail, though it was 22.5 inches.

Had almost my first multiple muskie day fishing yesterday morning on a river. Mentioned in the photo board, but lost a nice skie that got off while rolling around right in front of me. It ate a pacemaker before light which was scary to say the least. By the way I had a post earlier about have issues with line twist from the pacemaker and while the body does turn entirely when going faster, a ball bearing swivel got rid of all the twist issues. Then had a blow up 10ft from me a half hour later on the pace. Then a couple hours later caught a skie on a fly from an eddy. After that I had something (not sure what it was but it was descent size) follow my inline right to my feet while wading and I almost jumped out of the water it scared me so bad.

I'm starting to think flies aren't all that bad for skies. I spent way more time casting conventional tackle the last week with one 30 inch skie to show for it, and just a little time with the fly and caught a nice one. I had even casted through that same area with spinners before I went through it with the fly and caught it.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
