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.

    • Well picked up my BBQ sauce this weekend. Sure is good stuff! 13 bucks for a gallon jug!
    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
