what a day!

Recommended Posts

Yesterday my dad and I went out to shagawa up here in Ely and fished the early bass season. What a day it turned out to be. Within the first hour of fishing we found the bass and found what the pattern was and what they would hit. We then came along a school of smallies that all of them were well over 3 pounds and were schooled up pretty good. Which was nice cause I had the hot bait while my dad was in the back switching baits and tryin to catch the fish. Well he finally switched baits and started to catch them. So I am glad to say that I out fished my dad! All together we only caught 2 fish all day that were under 3 lbs. That was something that was something unexpected and glad that we found them. We would go out today but with snow this morning, really windy and only 34 degrees out we decided not to go.

Going to be a real shame to have to come home and the reality of Bassin' Isanti isn't it. wink

Them shag's smallies are fun as all get out. I hope to see some in my future. The problem is I also have Bside trout on the brain, as well as big pike. God I love ELY!!!!

Well Done Guys!!

Couldn't have possibly been Shags - there's no bass in Shags. In fact there's no fish at all in Shags. This post is pure nonsense! winkgrin

You're bummin me out man. I haven't been able to get there yet and it'll be at least another couple weeks before I do.

Nice catches. smile

We were out again today when and the weather was great. Action was much slower until I found a bunch along/near stinky ditch. I think the cold front turned down the fishes mood. Dad outfished son this time. It is fun fishing with swim baits. Fun time fishing the early smallies and i can't wait until the regular opener for the rest of the state.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
