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...

    • I have nothing good to say about his presidency
    • So they called Reilly back up, but part of me is kind of hoping that Prosser plays. Earlier this year he was very solid. You never get elite level from him, but I think he was dependable out there and I have been a big critic of his for a long time. The ceiling is obviously higher for Reilly and I want him to be a regular at some point, but if he isn't going to get 10 mins a night he is better off in Iowa and play Prosser. What impresses me are these numbers: 141 goals for (Tied 4th), 96 goals against (tied #2), +45 differential (#2). When was the last time a Wild team was in the top 5 in goals scored? We have a very balanced team and it is fun to watch, which this balance is also why slumps by Parise and Pominville don't kill this team or at least haven't until this point. I will say it again, I was a huge proponent of signing Staal. NO, I didn't think he was going to be leading our team in scoring, but what I was excited about was that it would mean that Coyle/Granlund could play wing where they should be. Those two are playing great overall and both have been playing wing pretty much entire season thus far. We can also thank Gravovac for his role too because without him, one of the two would be playing center most likely.
    • I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted, but I was able to take my new fish house out on the ice last weekend.  Fishing was slow for most of the weekend, but we had a good time otherwise.   I have some of the lights and tv mounted up temporarily till I start putting up the carsiding.  I'm just a little nervous about starting on the carsiding until I know exactly how to do my lift bunks.  I'd hate to put all that up and realize I don't have my furring in the right spot.   Furnace ducts are also ran temporarily, they'll be covered by cabinets when it's all said and done.  Most of the day saturday we didn't need the furnace anyways.  The sun kept it 10 degrees higher than what we set the furnace at!   Right now she's nothing pretty, but she got the job done without any problems on her initial trip.
    • Cooter ol' pal,  I think maybe you tend to skip over your inherent decency when you refer to President Obama as " a POS" My guess is you actually have a little more respect than that for a man to did the heavy lifting for the US for eight years and,  on more than one occasion,   has proven he is a decent man who really cares about the issues we face. You can disagree of course with some things-or all things for that matter-the man has done but he DOES deserve your respect. He is definitely not,  as you put it "a POS" and I'd guess you really have more class than that.
