Weekend with Jim W.

Recommended Posts

I got the chance to do some fishing with Jim W. last weekend.

It was a great day to fish but the trout weren't biting as good as Jim said they would.

We did see at lease one trout over 20 inches but never got that fish to bite.

Biggest trout of the day was a 19 1/2 incher that Jim caught.



Jim's 19 1/2 incher

This was a cave that feed the stream we were fishing.

Now when do I ever guarantee catching?LOL

It was a good time and we did catch quite a few fish. I was hoping for some larger ones and the one that flashed at your lure was a very large stream trout! It was a small area with little room for the trout to chase it down.

Hoping for a few more bigger ones today!!

Thanks for posting Steve!!

Well, Rick and I went out last evening for a go round with what I thought would be a big fish night.
UNfortunately only small fish came in!

Trout and smallies ( small) were willing to bite.

I was personally surprised to see the lack of larger brown trout.

However, a lot of change in progress in the stream we fished. Holes have been modified by flooding and I believe, trout are in stages of feeding and moving.

I did catch a 10 inch smallmouth that puked up a 5-6 inch shiner, after taking my 5-6 inch rapala.

This shows me some heavy feeding has been taking place by the larger fish. Maybe they were all napping!?lol

The streams are dropping considerably and where I had found fish earlier, none were to be found yesterday. IN fact, spots that "always" produced were a disappointment for me!

Thanks again for coming along Rick...next time!

    • That's awesome!  Many congrats to you both. 
    • A cougar absolutely but a puma? That might be a good time to call SSS outfitters.
    • Maybe if no one was looking
    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
