Trophy Fish!

Recommended Posts

NOT! Well, actually, maybe a trophy fish--for a Barbie doll!!!!

Went out to Shady Oak yesterday. Beautiful day, but not good fishing. No nothing till very late. Then I was on the dock and saw many bubbles. Cast toward them, and saw a number of good-sized sunfish examining my lure/worm. They looked very interested, but just floated there staring at it and teasing me.

I kept at it, and finally felt a tug. Great, I thought, a sunnie! And then I flipped my big catch onto the dock and got a look at it. It looked like a tiny miniature bass. Cute little stripes. This fish was so small that when I held it in the palm of my hand and closed my hand, you could only see the tiniest amount of tail fin sticking out. I have LURES bigger than this guy!!! rolleyes.gif

He looked as shocked to see me as I was to see him. But unharmed. So I sent him back to his Momma.

I guess you could think of it this way at least you caught something and that was a funny story.

This is true. How many fisherpeople brag after an outing about "how big the one that got away was"? I get to brag about how small the one I sent back was! grin.gif

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
