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!

    • Fleet farm site has something called brushtox, looks like it is 61% triclopyr.  31 bucks a quart.
    • I think you should get one and we can go all over Burntside and Snowbank this winter in search of lake trout. Just keep your shirt on! 😀
    • Just don’t use crossbow when it’s above 80 or going to be above 80 or it kills the lawn as well. It’s a great product, spray on clover in the morning  and it’s brown by evening. 
    • Finally got to someone that does this for a living and well respected. Triclopyr at 16% with 34% 2-4-d is in a readily available product called Crossbow. He highly recommends it. Spot treat the weeds not the whole lawn. Weed b Gon max works great on the rest of the weeds. 
    • Well things are cooling down but the fishing over deep water continues to boat fish!  Didn't slay them but got 2 more eater's this weekend over the deep water trolling for about an hour and half towards sunset.  Benn using Rapala Shadow Raps as of late and have been impressed.
    • Need to take advantage before we play Boston and Washington . Be up by 4 or 5 games when we get to those series.
    • Did another round of cottage bacon ..... 10 days brining turning the package ever other day, rinse and rest overnight in the fridge, smoke and rest over night in the fridge, and then slicing. It is a long two week process, but well worth it! If you’ve never done it, I high recommend giving it a try! I did 4 pork butts and ended up with abound 20 lbs.... gave about half of it away already, but have 4 more butts ready to brine before winter!        
    • All puppies have been sold !
    • They need to take full advantage of the easier games coming up.  I would like to see them get about 5-6 games ahead again.
    • Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.
