We Had A Great Fishing Weekend

Recommended Posts

Hubby and I fished Saturday and Sunday and boy did we ever have good luck. I think we caught every speicies of fish that are in that lake except Bullheads thank goodness. Are the fish bitting this well all over? I can't wait to get back and fish some more. I think I'll go up a few days early this week just so I can go out by myself. Don't get me wrong Love fishing with hubby, but also like being by myself and going just where ever I want and staying in a spot as long as I want. The bad part is I'll have to clean my own fish. Oh well I can do that, but I might be a lot more picky on what I keep if I keep at all. Well I hope every one is having great luck. Happy Fishing <><Mary><>

Mary,

Yep fishing this past weekend seemed pretty darn good. I was at a kids event on Monday and we had a blast! Slammed the big bluegills and sunnies. Wow was it fun... Kids had a blast too. I had a pair of 4th grade girls in my boat and when I asked what they wanted to fish for during the day one of em said. "Muskies!" weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
Too bad no muskies in the lake. frown.gif So we settled for bass and panfish! Fun anyways

Mary,

Yeah fishing with kids is so much fun. Not really sure why more people don't do it. It was a Dare program. Their motto is "Get Hooked on Fishing, Not Drugs." smile.gif One kid I had one year told me that his brother does drugs and fishes... :o

That pretty much does it for kids fishing events during the year. Can't wait till next year.

We did not go last weekend but have had good luck on the two weekends before that. We were catching as fast as we could get the hooks in the water and caught 3 really nice smallies.

But, on Memorial Day weekend when we got to our favorite spot there were boats all over it. So, we just stayed on the outside and fished around the edges. There was a young couple (right in our spot-for shame! grin.gif)with a little boy about 5 or 6. He was catching fish like crazy and was so excited he could hardly stand it. We trolled by and the mom saw us laughing at him and she holds up this little sunnie and says "you better fish by us, we are catching 10 Pounders". According to the little boy everything was at least 10 pounds. He was so cute. The last thing we heard was "This is so much fun dad. I have never had so much fun - can we come back next weekend?" We had as much fun watching and listening to that little guy as we did catching our own fish, and poor dad now knows how to bait a line and take a fish off in record time.

    • 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. 😊
