Fish Stories Anyone?


Recommended Posts

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.

    • Luxury RV camping has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to enjoy the great outdoors while still enjoying the comforts of home. With the right equipment and preparation, luxury RV camping can be a truly unforgettable experience. In this essay, we will provide you with the ultimate guide to luxury RV camping, including tips on choosing the right RV, selecting the best campsite, and packing for your trip.   The first step to planning a luxury RV camping trip is to choose the right RV. There are a variety of different types of RVs available, ranging from small and compact trailers to large and luxurious motorhomes. The right RV for you will depend on your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   One popular option for luxury RV camping is a Class A motorhome. These motorhomes are typically the largest and most luxurious RVs available, with spacious interiors, full kitchens, and even multiple bathrooms. They often come equipped with high-end features such as leather upholstery, flat-screen televisions, and high-quality audio systems. Class A motorhomes are also the most expensive type of RV, but they offer the ultimate in comfort and luxury.   Another popular option for luxury RV camping is a fifth wheel trailer. These trailers are typically larger than travel trailers and are designed to be towed by a pickup truck. They offer many of the same amenities as Class A motorhomes, including full kitchens, multiple bathrooms, and high-end features such as surround sound systems and flat-screen televisions. Fifth wheel trailers are often less expensive than Class A motorhomes but still offer a high level of comfort and luxury.   Once you have chosen the right RV for your luxury camping trip, the next step is to select the perfect campsite. There are a variety of different types of campsites available, ranging from basic, no-frills campsites to high-end RV resorts with all the amenities. When selecting a campsite, it is important to consider your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   If you are looking for a truly luxurious camping experience, consider staying at an RV resort. These resorts often offer a wide range of amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and even golf courses. They also typically offer high-end services such as concierge service, valet parking, and room service. RV resorts can be expensive, but they offer the ultimate in luxury and comfort.   If you are looking for a more affordable camping experience, consider staying at a state or national park. These parks offer a variety of different campsites, ranging from basic tent sites to RV sites with electrical and water hookups. While state and national parks may not offer the same level of luxury as RV resorts, they do offer the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors.     Once you have chosen the perfect RV and campsite, the final step is to pack for your luxury camping trip. When packing for a luxury RV camping trip, it is important to focus on comfort and convenience. Pack clothing that is appropriate for the weather and activities you have planned, as well as comfortable shoes for hiking and exploring.   In addition to clothing, it is important to pack all the essentials you will need for your trip. This includes bedding, towels, toiletries, and any medications or other personal items you may need. It is also important to pack food and drinks, as well as any cooking supplies you will need for meals. If you are camping in the cold weather, bring the Ocoopa Union 5s rechargeable hand warmers are easy to use for camping.
