Been out a five times on three local freshwater lakes this summer for bluegills, perch and the elusive walleye. IT was good to get out and fish....

Decent largemouth on a bluegill rig.

I've seen blue perch and perch with too many and not enough stripes but I've never seen one like this.

Only walleye taken a clipped fish from last years stocking efforts.

    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
    • That's the way most falls go. I was able to get out and put a gobbler down this fall. Went out just for a bird since I knew where they had been going in the morning. Got to the woods just after fly down and worked my way to the area and heard them talking a bit. Gave out a few yelps and had them running to me.
      Most years I never get a shot only have taken a handful in the fall. I was in a woods that I was not worried about ruining for deer.
    • Now that the corn is out and the ground is white the birds are really showing themselves. Three times in the last month I have seen 50-60  birds on a short day. Nearly every one was in a group and they are concentrating in dense thickets of plum brush.    And there are literally next to no hunters out and about going after them which is a big change from even a decade ago
    • I too remember these stupid punch cards in High school.  All the Nerds in the Computer class did stuff with um! 😅
    • I remember those stupid punch cards.  I was in junior high and had to “program” em in class.  I hated em and thought I’d just avoid using computers altogether! 😀
    • Good hunt in SD today: 
    • Had the day off so hit some public land around the Mitchell area today.   Did well, my favorite upland gun is my O/U and is currently broke. Busted a firing pin and waiting for gunsmith to get a knew one made on a lathe. So today I brought out the old 870 which I haven’t shot in at least 5 years or more.   Thought it would throw off my shooting but to my surprise managed a quick double on 2 shots lol. it’s always amazing how fast a day in the field can turn around. And I really enjoyed shooting this gun again. It’s amazing how something so cheap and simple is so good.   Day started out really slow I couldn’t find birds anywhere and then found the motherload. Shot my 3rd bird, put it in my vest and bumped birds all the way back to the truck.   Good late season hunt just wish we had more snow. And this warm weather isn’t helping ice that’s for sure.  
    • Looks good!  👍 Lets see no work gloves, may be a hat?  Do you have a coaster under that hot pan mister? 😊
    • Steak fajitas tonight.
