Oct 3-5 Big Bass Secret word and results...

Recommended Posts

Secret word: FM FALL FATTIES

Please have this phrase written on a piece of paper in the photo WITH the fish. Fishes mouth should be closed and board readable. You can post a second pict of you holding the fish as well.

Have fun my friends, I hope all have a heavy fish pulling back on their rods this weekend.

Even if someone has already posted a big fish.. still post yours, we all like to see fish!

A little over 19" but skinny, last cast of the night, caught less than an hour ago. Otherwise it was somewhat slow, we ended up with 7 and I don't think any others were bigger than 16". Gorgeous night to be on the water, glad you let us Friday guys join in the fun Deitz, thanks. Good luck everyone, this fish shouldn't be to hard to beat.

Well done Duffman, nice start to the contest.

What did it hit on?

I got a good one tonight too, Had a hard enough time taking a picture with my camera phone while in my waders, could not even think about putting it on a board and taking a pic of that. I will have to think of something because I think I will be getting out tomorrow, also in my waders. Maybe wander up to shore and get a quick shot. Got mine on a pearl tube in 4' of water

Nice fish guys.

Hopefully I can do better tomorrow with a little more time. I caught this on a summer craw ragetail in 5' of water.

I don't have a chance BnS (Come on cold front!!) LOL smile

I'm no dummy, there's way too much experience and skill roaming these parts. 21+" will take it. But I'll claim the prize for first fish posted, that's gotta be worth what? A splitshot or two? laugh

Oh yea, what'd it hit on? 10 inches of blue flecked black rubber.

I took a beating today. Managed 6 fish for about 7 hours of fishing. Had on good one on, trying to "Grab the Net" and it came unbuttoned. Probably a 19" + fish. Best fish was maybe 2.5 lbs. I hate wind, especially a east wind. Will try again tomorrow but probably won't have much time.

Here is my entry. Up on Mille Lacs for the fall frenzy get together at Appledoorn's. Trolling an X-rap Shad in Purple over 9 f.o.w. with rocks.

I left before the word was posted, and forgot to grab a board pic, but she went 20.5, just a thick fish. A new PB for smallmouth. Considering no board pic though, I will dq' myself from the big bass contest. Sorry, just wanted to get a quick pic and put her back.

frown I didn't see this topic before I went fishing (mostly because I don't usually target bass and read this forum infrequently). Here's my invalid entry then, didn't measure but a good photoshop estimate put's it just over 20"

IMG_0397.jpg

It rained Sunday and you can see I got wet... Anybody else bear the rain because the fish went nuts for a while there. First time our boat has ever had a triple.

If you do it next week I'll be sure to take a peak in before going fishing though, so my entry will be valid. My ability to catch big bass will remain in question however.

I got out on Saturday and had about 4 hours to fish so I tried for bass with small crank baits like DT 4, rattle trap, xrap, fat rap, top water prop, and of course the ole buzz bait and spinner. I discovered quickly that this was to be a pike day. I mananged to battle quite a few with nothing over 5lbs but they were agressive and fun. I thought with no bass to be had I would try the panfish as well with some small plastics. I was off a shoreline with defined weededge that dropped off quick and gave it a shot. The bite was very good with a sunfish of crappie on most casts. I also got a few very nice bull sunfish in the 9" class mixed in. Oh and while pan fishing I did finally get few bass to make a showing. However they were in the 14 to 15 inch class. Sunday morning I planned to get out early but the wind and rain kept me off the water.

Yeah, I brought the laptop up and he has wireless but I couldn't get connected for some reason. I finally connected at about 2:30 am on Sunday morning when we got in from the bull session. It was quite the trip, wish you were up there. Many stories about the Deitz up there. Sleeping against the door, that was a good one.

    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
