Weekend reports......

8 posts in this topic

I'm guessing most are not out today, except one guy I know that is on the river chasing smallies, so I'll post now.

Saturday: I had a couple hours so I played around with the trolling set-up, making notes of the line counter reel and how "x" lure runs with "x" amount of line out, etc. No fish though.

Sunday: Was planning on 'tonka, but common sense prevailed.... it's nasty out. Not worth it to me, especially with the buoys being pulled.

What I've heard thus far was "slow" at best, any reports?

1 follow 1 30" in the net for me on Sat, it was all I could do to stand near the lake and snap a couple pics today. Lakes rocking today.

Went by the three primary east metro lakes, nobody out on any of them sunday! Chased quackers with hugobox instead of fishing.

i fished all day on Sunday (Tonka) right thru the blizzard and could hardly see for awhile, fish were moving right after the blizzard, would go around about 5xs on figure 8s but would not hit.. fished friday 6am to 7pm, 1 lost fish, 1 follow.. fished saturday 8am to 7pm, 1 lost fish, 0 follows..tough weekend... hardly caught a pike.. saw some walleye guys really nailing walleys in deeper water.. very minimal baitfish seen in the past 3 days...i am guessing they are hugging the bottom or burried in remaining weeds

Was out on Tonka Saturday, moved one fish, that was it, nothing in the boat. Were alot of guys out there chucking, wondering how anyone else did on Tonka this weekend??? I heard WBL was pretty hot on Friday.

Got a 42" on a Hellhound on Saturday. It was the only fish we saw for 4 hours of fishing.

Sounds like after the blizzard was the deal. I takes "reel men" to fish in yesterday conditions. I am humbled.

Fished western WI lakes Friday and Saturday. One little guy under 30" on jigs Friday. No other follows. Saturday moved two respectable fish, but wouldn't eat. Couldn't get them turned in the 8's either.

I'm surprised one fish didn't eat the HellHound. That fish was on fire a ways out. Pushing water and curling up like it was about to lunge, but no dice...made the heart palpitate though.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
