****GONE FISHING****

Recommended Posts

I'm headed back to my little camper by the lake. I'll be gone until August 12th. I'm busy packing clothes and food for a week of fishing leisure. When hubby gets home I'll have the car packed and ready to go. I hope to catch that big one thats up there just waiting for me, but if I don't I'll be back to try again.

HAPPY FISHING <><Mary><>

Well I'm home again and yes it was a hot week. Saturday and Sunday we caught lots of good size pan fish one of the Crappies I caught was 12&1/2 inches. Caught a few really little fish also. A Perch, Large Mouth Bass and a White Bass that must have been all of 3 inchs long if that. This years hatch must be getting big enough to bite.

From Monday-Friday we had a womens week. Poor hubby's had to go back to work. Went out Monday morning and caught 6 pan fish. Then it just got to hot to fish. So Tuesday we went to Mystic Lake Casino and won $600 bucks. That was almost better then a good day fishing (almost).

Yesterday I caught my biggest fish of the week. I thought my poor ultra light pole was going to break in half by the time I netted that big Sheephead.

Of course we go back every weekend, but we are planning another week the first week of September. Hopefully the weather will be cooler then.

delmuts,

Wow just one inch short from the size limit. Hope you got some pictures of it. Did you catch it or one of your kids? We are hoping to get over there some time during the 1st week of Sept and fish for Muskie. What did you catch it on?

    • Nice!  Congrats to you guys!
    • Well Day 2 was a complete bust. Warm temps and high winds along with a full moon kept any daytime movement to a minimum at best. Onto the next.   Day 3 we got plenty of rest the night before and we’re ready to hit hard. We started off on the bluff where Cole had got his cow and before we could even sit down we had 3 cows at 600 yards heading at us. We lost sight around 500 and figured they would move right up the draw around 200 yards away. They didn’t follow our plan and disappeared forever. Around 10am we had some animals above us. We could hear hooves on the bluffs but never saw them. We had lunch around noon and then started still hunt ridge to ridge. Around 130pm we were on a sharp drop of when son says ELK! We immediately hit the ground as they were only 100 yards almost straight below us on steep bluff. We belly crawled to the edge and looked into the timber. We could then only see one standing looking straight away from into the wind. I slide my rifle up in front of me and placed the cross hairs behind the shoulder. My first opportunity at a Bull ever. Cole had him in the binos when I pulled the trigger. Not needed. He dropped right in his tracks. Cole tackled me and both erupted in laughter. Both of us total rookies had filled our elk tags 3 days into the season. Not sure if we are good or just plain lucky but either way it’s been an unbelievable experience.  Now we had some serious work ahead of us.  We literally had to pack him out an almost straight up vertical cliff. I have one really bad knee...all those years of jumping out of airplanes in the military have taken a toll on my knees. We each grab a rear quarter and made the first trek out. When we got back I was hurting. Cole said sit down Dad. I got this!! He then hauled out both fronts and loins in one haul. Went back down for the head and did that too. As I sat and watched him I was overcome with emotion. How did I get so lucky in raising such a grateful and helpful young man!  He got back up to me and we both broke down in tears and hugged for about 15 mins. What an experience we’ve had. The effort and hard work you go through on these hunts is like nothing else. It’s been the best we could of asked for and then some. We took the morning off while my buddy went back out. We did some scouting this afternoon and think we found a herd for tomorrow to go after with him along with trying to fill our deer tags. More to come
    • Looks great. Whats with the tray of rabbit food there? 😅
    • Gold finches are still hanging on. All juveniles though. Actually had a red winged blackbird at my feeder yesterday. 
    • So, I guess the show has a new director, and she wasn’t a big fan of how the show would drag certain things on. That’s why she hung Gregory in the first episode. Apparently she’s the reason Rick will only have 2 more episodes left. She’s not even going to drag out his demise. I like it!
    • Last batch of the season. I picked the rest of the unripe jalapenos for poppers. It sure was a great year for the garden. Just have some carrots and beets left. 
    • Oh - so that's what happens when a pike hits the camera.  Neat.  Thanks for sharing.
    • Congrats and that sure is a beaut!
