Do Mille Lacs smallies count? I hope so, hopefully I can find someone willing to give them a shot on Saturday morning. Or maybe Sunday morning.

No can do this weekend. I will be trying again the weekend of the 11th. Went out Saturday and caught a few in the 18-18.5" range, but nothing bigger...

How about expanding it to include Friday eve? Post the "special word" at 2:00 pm'ish. There's going to be a bunch of guys chucking steel this weekend on the lakes, and I'd prefer to let them have some alone time. (Not really, the honeydo list is piling up, and Friday looks to be my only alone time wink )

I'm ready to go again. More pictures everybody, even if they are ONLY 18 INCHES!!! That is still a nice fish. I like the secret word to validate the fish. I am going to put some tape on my board so you can see the numbers more clearly. Any suggestions on how to calm the fish for the photo? Last week mine kept jumping and flopping to the point I was starting to worry about the health of the fish. Great idea Dietz.

I won't be able to fish this weekend, but if there's another one next weekend I'm in as I have a trip planned. I'd just need someone to call me with the secret word as I'll be away from a computer starting Friday morning. grin

I was planning some fall walleye action but I can always find some time to try to entice a pig Bass.

Great idea Dietz. I did not post any pics last week. I did a few on 15 nd 16 inch fish for practice. Maybe this week I can sneak in the back door with a 18 or 19 incher. However, now that the bar has been set and we are in the fall I would guess a 21 or 22 inch class fish will take the prize.

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
