Lake Mary. Hoping to maybe get out for an hour or two but not sure there will be time and not bringing boat so will have to use pontoon if I want to get out. 250' dock sounds like an all day deal...

I know the word this week! While I may or may not target bass this weekend, I definitely will be throwing some big baits. 23" is a definite possibility.

I'm glad our 40' dock does the trick, as pulling that up the bank can be a chore. Luckily it can be removed without going in the water, so we leave in until the last minute.

Maybe a Catfish guy might have to throw up a 23 this weekend wink

Yep, that's right. I might break out my Bass gear.

You guys in the shiny boats, look out for flying 4ozers and scattering stinkbait grin

Oh well, gotta do it. Will be nice to get out of town none the less. I hope I can get out for a couple hours at least. Not sure if Mary is a great bass lake or not.

Our club has fished Mary a few times and we catch alot of bass, but there are alot of seven to eight pound bags weighed in. There has to be some bigger fish in there, but we really haven't found them.

A lot of shoreline weeds from what I've seen. Probably just going to grab a blade and buzzbait and go.

Based on the wind in the forecast, I might skip the bigger muskie waters and hit a couple smaller bass lakes close by home, they have been empty!

"MEA Yeah!" it is...... I was corrected in another post that it's now called Ed MN, so I'll write both out!

Caught a fat,fat,fat 21"er tonight that had to push 7lbs. Out by myself and no camera. My bet is someone will catch that 23"er this weekend. Good luck to all---.

Me and my buddy had one of those weekends people only dream of. Caught a ton of 18-19" fish. here are some pics. Nothing that hit 20", but we caught around 15 fish that were right at about 19"

this was the first of 5 doubles in a row. Every fish was between 18 3/4" and 19 1/2". I figure the school had about 70 smallies in it and most were right in this size range. I did however see some chasing hooked fish that were over 20".

    • I'm looking for suggestions on a dog blind for duck hunting. My son wants to train his lab pup to stay in a blind in the duck boat anybody have any suggestions on brand or what to look for.  
    •   Gee whiz, it took me 2 seconds to google it. Looks like it was The Hill.
    • Sure puts the Ion to shame.... 
    •     You're ok with the status quo, too, but you have never provided any rational explanation as to why.      
    • I am flying from Phoenix to Omaha tomorrow evening.  I do not remember the last time i drove in snow.  hopefully it will be plowed by the time i get in at 730pm.  
    • What's wrong with letting adults decide what they do with themselves and letting states make the calls when necessary?    As to your second paragraph, does oxycontin get treated like ibuprofen? Are all legal drugs treated the same or are there standards used for certain types of legalized drugs?    At the core I don't like the feds involved in regulating drugs,guns,tobacco etc but if I have to choose between making them illegal,which sends them underground where there is no consistency, no standards, no way if the consumer being able to know what they are buying and legalizing them where at least they are subject to some measures of consistency in manufacturing then I would grudgingly take the latter.    You always seem to get hung up on this all or nothing kick when there are other options that can be used.     
    • Well I went to the dealership to order my vinyl and lucky I did, one of the salesman told me the precut wood I had ordered is sized for carpet and not vinyl. If I use the vinyl I'd have a quarter inch gap or so in between the pieces...So now I'm gonna go with carpet which sucks since I had my heart set on vinyl...oh well
    • By the time the wedder morjits are done hyping it down here, it'll be the storm of the century, with thousands stranded and the National Guard dropping supplies from C-130's., pulled down the runway by herds of reindeer. 
    • I was up last weekend.  It was my 3rd trip of the year.  I canceled my rooms for my March trip.  Call the Hamilton House...2 rooms just opened up for the 8-11th of March.     There's a ton of Walleyes in LW, but debatable how many big ones.  Big fish seem to be in decline.  Pick any reason you want, but it's a fact.  The big fish are nowhere near as prevalent.  That doesn't mean you won't catch one...or multiple...but you're going to have to work.  If you're not in the fish, move.  If you find fish, but not bigger ones...move.   I'm a mover...I'll move 5 times in a day easy.  I know guys who will wait it out all day and they might be the guys who catch some big fish, but they're usually the guys who only catch a few eaters and nothing big.  just my opinion.  Good luck and above all, don't let all the fisherman completely devoid of courtesy be justification to abandon yours.
