Its Not My Year For Fishing

Recommended Posts

This is just not my year for fishing I guess.
We got out on the Lake Saturday morning and hubby says you pick the spots today. Ok great I thought, but after 3 different spots I hadn't even gotten a nibble. Of course he was catching. I decided I had bad carma or some thing. After getting back up to the camp ground I had heard that hardly any one else caught any thing either.When we got home yesterday we got a phone call and a friend of ours had caught a 5lb Walleye. She was real excited about it. I can't wait to see the pictures. She is on the way today to the local taxidermist to have it mounted. I am really happy for her but I sure wish it would have been me. Oh well I guess my husband and I are changing places he seems to be catching more then me this year usally its the other way around. Well Like they say a bad day fishing is better then a good day working. Hope everyones luck has been better then mine.

Sorry to hear about your bad luck, gotta let the hubby get ahead once-in-awhile, just to keep 'em interested.
We made a first-time weekend trip up to Lake of the Woods, I got us a walleye charter (birthday present for the hubby, but gee I got to go too!) We both caught our limit of 14 to 25 inch eyes. Glad we went out on a bigger charter boat instead of ours because a storm went across the lake south of us creating 4-6 foot swells. Gave a whole new dimension to trying to boat a fish. Our guide, Doug Brown, of the Ship's Wheel Resort on the Rainy River was really good. We stayed at Wheeler's Point resort. It was very nice, cabin was comfy, right on the river. I caught a smallie and some perch from the dock, almost skunked the hubby, but Sunday morning he came up with a little perch. Would definitely recommend a trip up there!

Hey Mary - no sympathy from me - at least you have a boat! grin.gif Picked up the trolling motor today but they still have not started on the big one. Oh well, it is suppose to rain again this weekend and I sure don't want to get involved in the We Fest traffic. Besides if you let those men catch a few it will hold their interest.

BuffaloFisher, Sounds like you had a great time. That was a nice B-Day present to give the hubby. This year we haven't been able to get any farther then our camper in Waterville, but next year we hope to go some where else. We have been thinking about the Cass Lake area, but Lake of the Woods sounds a lot better to me. I'd really like to rent one of those house boats for a week.

    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗    
    • I picked up some impulse mayfly plastics and mud bug jigs. I have tried plastics in the past with mixed results. I expect good things from the impulse mayflys. It would be nice not to have to mess with live bait.
    • Like Mike said, location is going to be key to giving you recommendations. The types of activities you want to engage in and price you are willing to pay can also be factors as well as how old your camper is in some instances.
