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.

    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
