Hi Mary,

Yes, my boyfriend and I are planning on fishing lake Waconia for opener with another couple. Sounds like we are going to fish all day and into the night...and then have a bonfire. If you make it to Lake Waconia smile.gif come join us at Harms Point....otherwise good luck. I'll let you know how we did. Happy fishing!!

HI MattsGal, I'll be fishing at Tetonka Lake in Waterville. I really enjoy the Opener. We aren't the diehards that run out at the stroke of midnight, but we will be out there some time in the morning. So far the weather forcast sounds good. After Friday I won't be on the computer again until the 22nd of May. We are going to be on vacation for a week, but I will let you know how I did when we get back. I'll be looking forward to hearing how you did at that time.
The Best Of Luck <><Mary><>

Hello Ladies: We have not even got the boat out yet. This is a first for us - not making the opener. But we have been so busy and it is so cold that I think I will wait for the sun to shine. Good luck to all of you!

Well gals,

I didn't exactly get out much for the opener except for 25 minutes before work. I did catch a few fish though...but still haven't mastered the art of baiting a hook...especially with leeches! I'm working on it. smile.gif

How did you all do? Where did you go?

Happy Fishing!

Hey Matts Gal = I don't do leeches! I will put anything else on, clean them, cook them whatever but I don't care if I never catch another fish I will not put on leeches. They remind me too much of blood suckers when I was a kid. grin.gif

Phyl!

That is EXACTLY what I told Matt! They remind me of the movie Stand By Me...not something I want to even think about touching! I have finally become okay with baiting everything else, but I just can't get myself to bait the leeches! Even if they aren't blood suckers...they are still super disgusting!! smile.gif

I haven't cut a fish yet either...soon enough...

Hey Matt's Gal:
Just use some other kind of bait and maybe you will catch a bigger one than the pro!

I have been cleaning fish since I was a kid so that is not a problem. At our house if you fished, you cleaned and baited your own hook or you stayed home. But try those electric knives - they are great. I personally like the one with the shorter blade. Seems like it just works better for me. Must be my dainty hands. grin.gif

Hello Gals,

We got out a little on Opener, but mostly after opener we did our best fishing. I caught fish every day we were up at the camper. Mostly not keepers. I didn't catch a Walleye over 12 inches long. We did manage to get in to some Crappies a couple of times so we did get to eat fish.

Last Saturday we fished in our yearly fishing frenzie my Hubby's company puts on every year. Hubby caught 2 Northren 1-6lbs and 1-4 lbs. He also caught a Crappie that weighed a 1 1/2 lbs that was the biggest Crappie I've ever seen. I caught a bunch of smaller Crappies and had a hard time keeping the sheap head off my hook. We ended up with winning $50.00, a grill and another new tackle box.

Oh you girls. I use to be the same way about leaches. Now I'd rather put a leach on my hook then a night crawler. They are so much cleaner. I'm just never really sure just where to hook them.

Happy Fishing Mary

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
