WELCOME FISHINGPHYL

Recommended Posts

I'd like to welcome fishingphyl as a new moderator in The Gals Luv 2 Fish Center. Through personal e-mails she has agreed to work with me in this forum. Myself I'm really glad to have another Lady Angler on board. Hopefully together we can get more women interested in responding to this forum.

Hey Mary - Thanks for the welcome!!! I also love to fish and I am not looking forward to having to put the boat away for the season. If all you gals would e-mail the address of the Fishing Minnesota site to your friends maybe we can get some more women involved.

I am looking for a web site that has pictures of how to filet a Northern Pike - does anybody know of one?

By the way guys - welcome to you too! Remember the couple that plays (fishes)together stays together.

Welcome fishinphyl!!!
I have a friend, JA SAY TREE to name him explicitly, that insists in not fishing at all in the Fall! He would rather shoot his gun! Now before I start a ruckous, let me say that there isn't anything wrong with that, but since he "needs" to store his boat at my house, I find it hard to believe that both hunting and fishing can't be enjoyed at the same time!!

I guess I'll just have to find a way to pick his boat lock and take'er out while he's duck hunting eh?

Again, welcome aboard!

Keep the rods bendin'!!

Hey thanks for the welcome and also the ND web site. I was born and raised in ND and did not even think to try their site! You know Minnesota the land of 10,000 lakes figured I would find it there. Now we will have to go out and catch another one so I can practice!

Hey Jim - better pick that lock and head out. It is a beautiful day here wish I was fishing instead of heading to work. I am sure by Sunday it will be raining again.

As for hunting - don't bring that up. I have to kick guys off my 10 acres (which are surrounded by open fields) because they are in the trees right next to the horses looking for deer! Also, my husband - the one that takes the mice out of the feed bin and lets them go - does not hunt. Also does not clean fish - guess who gets to do that! Have a good one!

Great--pike filleting instructions. I know how to fillet a "normal" fish, but I have bought pike in the store and though I like the flavor, I don't buy it any more. Even filleted, it's bone city. I caught a little Northern at Shady Oak a few weeks ago and I released him. He was on the small side anyway, but I could only picture hacking a tiny bit of bonelessness out of him. These instructions look interesting and helpful. Thanks!!

P.S. I catch only the dumb fish. The smallie I caught a while back? I caught him twice in the same afternoon, kept him the second time, as he had swallowed the hook anyway. He was on the small side. The Northern? I had gone onto the pier and someone there said a Northern of that size had just chased their lure. When I hauled him in, saw he had a damaged mouth from being caught before. Same day, I caught a little bitty sunfish--he got the very edge of the hook in his mouth. Don't know how I got him in with such a tenuous set. The hook and lure were too big for him, but there he was! rolleyes.gif

Hi Fishgirl:
I know what you mean about dumb fish - or maybe it is persistence! We caught several sunnies more than once the last time we went fishing. Finally just kept them because they had swallowed the hook.

I tried the northern filleting instructions but it was getting dark and I was really in a hurry. Got most of the bones out but there was still some. I have asked several guys that come in the store that fish and they all tell me a different way to do it. We had some northern last night that was really good. But it was a big fish and the bones were big so it was not so bad. Guess I will have to wait until next year to practice. Ate our last batch of fish last night with friends and really had a great time. Nothing better than fresh fish and good friends and someone else doing the cooking!

Wanted to get one more weekend of fishing in but they are using the "S" word in the weather here for tomorrow so I guess we will probably break down and put the boat away. I sure hate to give in but I guess when you live in Minnesota you should be use to it. But the question now is what do I do for fun all winter?

Take care and good luck with those "dumb" fish - at least they all taste the same.

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
