A Good Way To Catch Fish

Recommended Posts

I found a good way to out fish the hubby. All year he has been out fishing me so Saturday afternoon when we went out I made a bet with him. The one that caught the most fish had to cook supper. I felt my odds were real good at not having to cook. WRONG I caught 2 big perch 1 Crappie and 1 White Bass to his 1 Perch. It worked out ok though he cleaned the fish well I cooked supper. I guess I'll have to make that bet more often.

Mary i would think so!! sounded like a great day on the water. i fnally am getting to know the the feeling of sharing the boat with some one. we were at shady acers on robets lake last week. my girl freind came along . ( yes, with my 15 yr old twins permission!) it was super to have some one else who loves to fish, and who means a lot to me sharing my boat. i've been single for 10 years. ladies enjoy every minute you get like this. you don't realize how wonderful those times are til you don't have the opportunity. a little bet like that just adds a little more spice to the day!! del

del, Thats great I'm so glad you found some one that likes to fish also. Well how was it did you catch anything and were you able to get out with your knee surgery? Tell your Lady she is going to have to join us on here. We need more women.

Yes we did have a good day Saturday we caught a lot of fish between the 2 of us. We were out most of the morning then we went back out in the afternoon. In the morning I only caught 1 fish to his 3.

mary the first couple of days the sunnies were really biting. then the front came thru, and really slowed things down. we did manage to catch some small walleye on cranks and jigs. fished mainly for panfish and bass. we did ok on bass. i caught a 5 lb lg mouth that we brought back to the dock for pictures and released it there. several people almost fainted ( including my girl freind!!) when we turned it loose. ron Kline took alex muskie fishing two mornings! although he didn't catch one or have any folows, ron kept him intertained and taught him more about those toothy critters! my hat off to ron! he is super!! we had a very good week. only down side was my daughter got sick the morning we were leaving, so it was a quick trip to the dr. and then the drug store for meds then up to faribault. she got sick the first night there and did not feel very good for the first three days. she had an inner ear, and an outer ear cannal infection. she did get to ski and tube the last two days. it was a good week. ( and yes i bought my freind a very nice spinning rod and reel) and she even knows how to clean fish!!! i'm doing pretty good. was a little shaky in the boat some times, but managed! del

Hey Del glad you found a woman that likes to fish and will even clean them! I hope it works out for you. Life is too short to not enjoy it with someone.

Well, all I have to say is you all better be fishing on the Eastern part of the state this weekend because I got my boat back on Monday and we are going this weekend so you know it is going to rain in the Western part of the state! But I don't care - at least we will be on the lake.

Hey Mary, better watch those bets - you may end up cleaning and cooking those fish. grin.gif

    • 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
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
    • 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.
