Fish Story

Recommended Posts

Just got back last night from a wonderful week up at the Lake. Caught lots of fish it was great. The weather couldn't have been any better.

On Tuesday afternoon I decided to head out to catch some Crappies. It had took a little while for them to start bitting but I tryed a few different things and they finnally came in and started bitting. I ended up with a slip bobber and a minnow. I caught 3 Crappies just bang bang bang. Then my bobber went down again and boy did i have a fight. When I finally got it up to the boat I had a small Walleye hooked but a big Northren had a hold of him. I almost got them both but when I put the net in the water the Northren finally let go. I think if I would have went from the back of the Northren I would have caught them both. I've heard of this happening to other people before but it was the first time it happen to me.

Hey Mary this is too funny! I suppose pretty soon you will start a TV show or sell videos on how to save time fishing - catch two at once! grin.gif

We also had fun on Sunday. We hit a spot with LM Bass and they were biting as fast as we could get the hooks in the water. We must have caught over 20 in just a short period of time and then they quit. There were some really nice ones in there. Funny thing was this is where we usually go for sunnies and did not catch a single one. Oh well - we had fun and just about had the lake to ourselves - must have been the white caps.

    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me. 
    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip?
