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!

    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days 
    • A gill getter jig(horizontal) and a "flipper" jig(vertical) are the first two to go on the line for sunfish.   Crappies are kinda my kryptonite, so i usually throw the box at them till something works. I am still a meat fisherman, plastics have been very productive at times however.
    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
