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.

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.  
    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
