things lost to the lake not including the big one

Recommended Posts

While fishing out on French lake, years ago, I set the hook big time and right down the hole went a Colman double mantle latern. Watched it turn the vexilar green until it hit bottom. Tried snagging it, but no luck. We did bring a nice mess of fish home tho...............

A nice LED lantern, and about $10 worth of jigs over the season. One night when I was packing up I forgot my box of jigs on the roof of my car and drove off never found them.

I'm thinking about making up a screen with a slot for the line in it, could still see the bobber, thats easily removed when needed for my permanent. Could save hundreds maybe thousands of dollars over a lifetime!!!

First time out 5 years ago I lost a full, unopened can of Bud Light. My buddy and I spent the next few hours coming up with great Super Bowl commercials about it.

Example:

Call police, tell them your bud (instead of buddy) fell in the lake, they send a full search crew with divers, the crew comes up with full unopened can, and I smile and slam the beer...

There ya go. How about Plexiglas? (couple inches bigger than the hole of course, so it too doesn't fall in.)

Two years ago, somewhere in the abyss of Red lake my son found out the hard way that his WWE action figures of "Tripple H" and "Batista" did not float! Maybe Kelly P has found them or the Red Lake seals ate them!

The holes in a fishhouse seem to have magnetic powers over dice. If you miss them they leave the table, everyone just looks at each other and listens as they hit the heater or bucket then the floor and roll then silence. Everyone hopes it hits the edge but the sound is always the same. Kerploop.

dropped a can of campbells chucky chicken noodle soup (opened of course) Saved the can, but the noodles & all the fixins went down the hole. Had a whole pile of noodles under my hole. The white color of the noodles (or the smell) DO NOT attract any fish. The pile went straight down and stayed there in a blob.

Last year my g/f and I were out fishing in the porty. I went out to put a tip-up out and all of sudden i heard something slam on the floor of the house and hit the water. All at once she yells a bad word and starts yelling here phone went down! She said she watched it slowly float to the bottom. Man she was mad,she called her dad when we got home and he laughed at her!

A spoon that I was going to use to eat some soup.. and a jigging rap that the line melted and lost it so I dropped the camera down to see if I could see it didn't so I pulled it up and the line got tangled on the cable and I got it back!

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
