starting to dream about the clicker

20 posts in this topic

Yeasterday I drove over the minnesota river by Jordan and looked at the river and saw snowmachine tracks and all I could think of was how great it will be to get the boat on the riv and then the clicker went off in my head. set the hook and now I got a nice flattie on drag singing my favorite song, keep him out of the timber, turn him before he hits it.now just a bit more play him out, wow what a beauty, a few photos, release,and start the process all over again.

This seems to happen to me every time I go over that river.

Man I love that feeling. I better pay attention to driveing or I'll be in the ditch at least I'll be by the river grin

Lol. I hear ya' Elwood. Yesterday I took a peek at my summer cat gear and the first thing that came to mind when looking at my reels was the clicker screaming at me....the next thing that came to mind is what gear I need want for this spring! I'm beginning to show the signs of the "open water itch." wink

One new channel rod now ready and the boat was all rigged last fall before I put it away for the river.

Let the ice melt away.

I have been going CRAZY lately. Been buying all my supplies lately and have gone to multiple different sporting goods stores in the last week. Just got my Catfish Insider and have read it page for page and now I just have to sit and wait until spring.

Thats pretty early. I'm wondering if he meant the Catfish Connection catalog....

IF ANYONE CAN CONFIRM IF THE INSIDER IS OUT... PLEASE SHARE THE GOOD NEWS.

I am too busy ice fishing yet to be thinking of open water fishing. I enjoy the seasons as they come and when the next season comes I will enjoy that one as well. I like hard water fishing just as much as I like open water. And the transition inbetween seasons, I will get stuff ready. I will also sneak out for some early, or late open water fishing to Redwing to keep me satisfied in long transitions. I will also spend a little time with the family to make up for the hot bite.

Starting around Valentines Day, I'll sit in the hot tub and tie a line to the dog's collar. That little yorkie can really give the E-Cat and the Penn 320 a workoutastrosmiley.gif

Oh now why didn't I think about that. Wait I don't have a dog. Maybe I could drive to the mall, give the wife the credit card and tell her to go shop. Now that would be a fun fight.

Elwood, maybe think about making a mix tape/cd; Sounds of Clicker. Could maybe have all different types of clickers and varying speeds. You could sell it it any reputable gas stations right next to song bird and/or polka cd's. $9.95...

    • 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
