Have you ever spent time just fishing from the dock at your favorite resort or fishing spot? I have and I've met a lot of interesting people there. I've met people from all walks of life fishing from the dock. Its really something how you have a special bond with fellow fishing people.

I've had life stories told me in a matter of a few minutes of meeting some of these people. Always a great fishing story or two exchanged. I've had people come by in boats asking how the fishing is going and if I know where there might be any good spots for them to fish at. In return they'd tell me what they had caught where and how.

I had a friend call me the other day. She had taken her brother fishing to a small area lake that has a fishing jetty. There was some other people fishing there also. She said to me "you know you meet a lot of nice people when your out fishing". I told her yes I know and that is what got me thinking about the people I've met in the last few years fishing from the dock. This year I haven't done this much instead I've just been jumping in the boat and taking off to my favorite fishing spots forgetting about the best spot of all the the Fishing Dock. I know where I'm headed the next time I go fishing. Who knows maybe I'll meet some new friends.

I've even caught some of my biggest fish from the dock. One time a school of White Bass happen to come by and I caught 15 in a roll. Now that was some fun good fishing. I caught my biggest Walleye, Small Mouth Bass. and my first and biggest Dog Fish.

Have you ever met any one interesting while fishing? Lets hear about it.

funny you should mention dock fishing.
since i have no boat i fish from shore about 99.9 % of the time. last weekend was an exception my fishing buddy and i rented a boat and fished the lake. sure was different.
last night after i got done with all my running around i headed to one of my dock spots. there was a father with his 2 kids (son and daughter) and a friend of his son's.
they had been there awhile. had not caught anything yet but was waiting for the sunny bite. i fished the opposite side of the pier as i was hoping for some crappie or eyes. well i did not catch anything till after they packed it in at 9:30. the little park closed at 10:00. they had so much fun catching them sunnies. they were not great big ones by any means but all were having a blast catching them. the father admitted he is not a knowledgable fisherman. but enjoyed the time there.
at this same dock i have had many interesting conversations with various ppl. most of the time they are fishing related, but not always.

Say what you mean and Mean what you say.

I have met 2 other Lady's that I have become very good friends with over the last 3 years. I met them both on the same dock. I'm sure there has been a lot of friendships made well fishing from a river bank or lake shore. Any body have any stories they want to tell us about this?

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota walleye are being caught at a variety of depths with 24-27’ being the most consistent. Glow red with gold has been a hot combo this week. Rattle baits continue to draw active fish to our houses. Sauger activity has been very strong, providing Anglers the opportunity for full limits before new regulations take effect on March 1st. New limit regulations give a combination of six walleye/sauger with no more than 4 walleye. The slot of 19.5”-28 must be immediately release with one walleye over 28’ to be allowed in possession.

      Canadian crappies are still filling buckets and freezers, they can be found near the bottom in 32-35ft. Super light tackle and willingness to keep trying different jig combinations is producing the most fish.  Many tulibee are being seen this week, which make for a tasty treat out of the smoker.  Walleye fishing continues to be very good in traditional areas, depth at 23-28ft. 

      Snow depth in our areas is between 2 and 2.5 ft. Trails are in great condition after last weeks snow and wind conditions. 

      Until next week, 
      Sunset Lodge
    • I must be mad at math, honestly we just lost 4 in a row and weren't good before that and yet we cling to 8th place. We can't even tank right and get a better draft pick. 
    • Borsch posted a reminder in the st cloud forum, so I wont take credit for being johnny on the spot but in 13 days you'all need to get a new fishing license.
    • I put a call into the Wisconsin DNR, they said March 1st license will be available.
    • good for you guys leech!!  and a darn good lookin family too!!!  being blessed like that is darn good!!!
    • What do you mean they are still in a playoff spot. Come on think positive! At least wait until they get done playing the blues today before you start to sing the blues. 
    • Tried to purchase the D season Wisconsin tag i was drawn for yesterday. Clerk said try again at the end of March, any truth to that? I will call the Wisconsin DNR on Tuesday (holiday tomorrow).
    • Well put in a few miles with the grandkids and daughter by Orock MN on Sat.  Trails were pretty nice but there were lots of sleds out and I'm sure they will be pretty beat up by the end of the weekend! Little guys had a great time driving and riding in the sleigh. Hot chocolate and cookies are always a good ride break warmer! Fun day, God has blessed me well.
