Observation this weekend!

5 posts in this topic

This last week of warmer weather made the shallow water hotter than the deeper water again. which in turn ,well in my experience this saturday there was "alot" of "nice sized " bass up shallow in some remaining weeds or where a thick weed line used to be! a calm wind shore or a little ripple was key . We were running black and white buzz baits in about.6" to 4 fow. the temp was up to about 66.8 from a chilly 61 ish last week.

2nd that JD

Had the same on Sunday without anyone else on the lake. Must have been some sports on TV or something.

Windy, northside, 5fow or less with thick weeds. Never stopped hitting a white buzz but with the waves getting bigger around noon the fish seemed to be having trouble keying in on the bait. Switched to a large Hula Popper and white spinner and they worked even after it got mostly sunny. All dozen plus were between 14" and 20" and came from a few hundred yard span of that shallow shoreline. Temp was 67 most everywhere and tho not pea soup, was green stained and a little smelly.

I didn't have size or #'s like that. But kinda the same area. Fished the dying milfoil from a foot to 6 feet of water. Baby 1 minus was hot for 30 mins with spinnerbait a close 2nd. Bull ribit was going well too, but I miss so many on that. Ugh.

North side too and same greenish color. Temps at this lake were 69.7 in the afternoon.

I watched the first half of the vikes and that was all I could take.

I won a small tourney up in Pine City on Saturday. I caught fish all day long but the biggest fish came from the windy docks. Even with the overcast sky, these fish were tucked up in the shade of the docks and boats. I used a 3/4 oz jig to get them out.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
