80 degrees and a 5 pounder

9 posts in this topic

We got out early today and temps were close to 80 so I threw the poles in the car off to school I went. We got out at noon and I got to the pond by 2 or so. No wind...high sun...water crystal clear. I figured at the very least it was a nice day to get out and wet a line. I haven't fished since August when football started...so it was a great way to waste some time.

Threw on a white 4 blade spinnerbait and went to work. Normally I don't bother casting to the middle of the pond toward deeper water...just cast parallel to the shore but it's been cold here lately so I thought I'd try a little deeper after my casts down the shoreline produced nothing. I was slow rolling it back to shore when WHAP!!!!! Only bite I got...but I made it count. Last two fish I've caught from this little pond add up to 12 pounds.

Other picture is my son who caught this sunnie on a tube jig under a bobber smile He's quite a little fisherman for a 3 year old.

ehhhh....not really. We came back to reality today. Temps are in the 20's. I know you guys would gladly take temps in the 20's right now! Believe it or not...I miss the bitter cold. The kind of cold where when you walk outside...your nose hairs freeze up! smile

I had to set the heater in my car to 80 and I cleared off about 5 pounds of snow. Lets trade places next time.

I'm in full ice fishing mode, but the thought of 80 and a 5#'er sounds nice...

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
