I was fishing for lakers on Crow Lake, Canada (1/12/07). I was fishing a good spot in 40 FOW and was jigging a white tube @ 15ft and a pink airplane @ 25. After sitting for about 2 hours I had a solid hit on the tube by a fish that zipped out the drag. I crossed his eyeballs and had him on for about two minutes when he got off. Knowing that he hadn't gone far I started jigging the tube agressively. It worked and he hit hard again, but didn't waste anytime spitting the jig. I kept jigging the tube and then saw a red streak on my Marcum heading down to the airplane. I had dropped the rod so I picked it up just in time to feel the hit and again try to cross his eyeballs. I got a solid hook set and he was not to get off, but he wasn't done with his desire to go home with me. He reversed course and went straight up and hit the tube and I now had a double hooked 7 lb laker. I've been fishing lakers for years and I know they can be agressive, but I've never had this happen before.

That's a great story Down Deep. Those lakers can definately be aggressive, but that is exceptional! blush.gif Also, thanks for the indirect tip on jigging two rods. I've never thought of doing that for lakers. My arms are going to get a good workout this weekend.

I was out in the permanent on Mille Lacs for the first time this year last night. Anyways, I get a phone call from a fellow asking me if I would be interested in to doing some contracting work when the bells start rattlin to beat heck on the rattle reel. I told the guy to hang on a tick because I had a line that I needed to tend to. Rather than set the phone down, I did the old tuck between the shoulder and ear deal while pulling up the fish. Low and behold I drop the phone down the hole during the process and then proceed to have my knot come untied from the lure after pulling the fish half way out of 30' of water. crazy.gif I didn't care two bits about the phone, I was however disappointed that I lost one heck of a walleye I presume because I tied a schotty knot.

I went out tip-up fishing first ice. With me came one of my coworkers and his little brother. I got him going on fishing earlier in the year. We had been out catfishing a walleye fishing maybe ten times or so. Any how, the guy is pretty smart and I thought he was starting to get the hang of it. So we get the first flag and he runs out and sets the hook. He gets the pike and holds it up. He has his thumb in it's mouth like its a Bass. We looked at him like, What are you doing. Needless to say it was a good thing it was just a three pounder and I don't think he will do that again crazy.gif.

I remember ten years ago or so Pete Bercich, backup linebacker and special teamer for the Vikings, lost the end of a finger thanks to a Muskie.

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
