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.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
