****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?

    • WELL i was just up in  that country over the weekend. maybe 3-4 inches in the woods might be 2 inches of snow on the lakes!!!!!!
    • That's why I remain in the adapt and live with it and hope for a solution that doesn't destroy our already sub-par deer hunting in MN. (and fishing when it comes to aquatic invaders)
    • i use the same husky bag for my helix setup works great.
    • Ice Team partnered with Navionics for a handful of online webinars.  These are pretty cool.  I thought the HSO group would get a kick out of them.  Not always easy to make all of the seminars in-person, especially when you live across the country from some of them, so these webinars offer-up a unique opportunity.  Here are the details on the ones coming up if anyone is interested...   When: December 11th, 8:00 PM EST Topic: How to Attract Fish to You on the Ice with Mark Martin. Link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7012356799514703874?source=Navionics+News    When: December 19th, 8:00 PM EST Topic: Improving Your Lake Trout Ice Fishing Tactics with Bernie Keefe. Link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/82867287788632833?source=Navionics+News     Enjoy!
    • Nice set up. Husky also makes a lunch bag that seems to work well for ice fishing electronics. I reinforced the top lid to support my tablet and put a switch, 12v outlet & 3 port phone charger to one side. I like the extra storage on back for cables and 2 water holders for my chargers. Use the 9ah 12v lead acid battery for power. Has carry handle when closed.
    • You guys may be right.  May as well start draining every dam lake with invasive species in it to make sure it's stopped, cut down ever dam Ash tree, start shooting every Sparrow, Pheasant and netting all the Smelt out of Superior that will take some time. But we can do it!!!  Insert crazy emoticon here: 😵
    • Lots of reality here.   Seriously, if we truly want to wipe out CWD, all deer/elk farms need to be wiped out, all natural deer scents need to be banned and taken out of production and every single deer/elk anywhere near a positive CWD infected area needs to be wiped out. Every last one of them! And then, all deer that are found in these areas for at least 10 years need to be destroyed.    Is this a sacrifice the state is willing to make? Not a chance! So we fall to the only other option, we adapt and live with it. 
    • It's always fun to rig up your own custom stuff then paying a bunch of money for things that may not work as well.  Looks like it should do the trick for you!  🙂
    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.
