Not ready

9 posts in this topic

I am just not ready to quit the soft water yet, but alas Saturday night I will pull the boat out and tuck it away for the winter. The high on Sunday is supposed to be around 37 and I guess it is time to start working on my ice fishing gear. I have had such a great time fall fishing, best I have ever had. Last nights count was 3 northerns (kept for pickling) and one 19" walleye for dinner Sunday. I hope to get out later today and again on Saturday.

The way I read it she was offering everyone some pickled pike. grin

I put the boat away two weekends ago, for the second time. I had fully winterized it a week before that, but couldn't help myself and went out one last time.

It is a sad day, givving up on summer and looking forward to winter.

Thursday's gonna be tough on everyone when it almost hits 60 (well that's what they're forecasting anyway!!) Jim winterized our boat too. It's time. You can already tell that it's shifting to the Ice Fishing season when there's 124 people viewing the Ice fishing forum and only 30 reading the Open Water forum right now!

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
