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.

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
