Anybody fishing today or tonight?

16 posts in this topic

Just curious if anyone went out fishing today and if the fish were biting? I'm thinking about going out yet to see if an evening bite is on with the storm coming in.

Hey "Grumpy Old", If you go out, you be Darn careful!! It would probably be a great evening to get your Spring gear, in gear grin Ain't no time to be out on the remaining 'ice' alone.., that's just askin' to become a statistic. Phred52

I went out tonight, Ice was fine except for right along the shorelines. Saw a guy driving out today too. Oh and the fishing was slow, but I think we got out kinda late.

I've been out twice since I posted the question- the shore on South Long in Brainerd is soft but I've driven the wheeler out with no problems.

The spot I'm fishing still has 17 inches of solid ice so I'm thinking it will be at least a week before I hang it up...

DO NOT TRY THIS WITHOUT FLOTATION and SELF RESCUE capability.

I was on the north end of White Bear on April 1.

About half way between Ramsey Co Beach and Ordway's Bar.

The bigger sunnies are showing up and on an aggressive bite.

kingfish,

are the shorelines still holding I have been thinking about heading out there. It has been a very slow year out there. Darn Near Retarded may have taken too many in the past and with the last few summers, I think it has taken a toll on them

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
