No wonder I don't catch any big ones! I've been using whole minnows! I'll let the entrails hang out next time grin.gif Congrats on the slabs!

Sounds like one of those tricks that only works on one lake. I think you should post what lake you were fishing. GPS coordinates would be great too. I would really like to try it. wink.gif

grin.gif Sounds like you had a great time. I think yesterday was an awesome bite day. I fished panfish in the morning and we caught a lot of sunnies and crappies. Sunfish were from small to half pound. kept 10 from 1/3 - 1/2 pound. Crappies were from 10 -13 inches, all released, only caught about 10 crappies, maybe 100 sunnies. Son and I went for walleyes last night. Set up in seven feet of water, gemeneye hooks on set lines and go devils for jigging. we caught seven from 17 - 22 inches and missed several. Also caught a couple about 6 inches, looks good for the future.

Talked to my cousin fishing another lake, He caught and released three walleyes, over 27 inches, no keepers, but did managee three crappies over 13 inches.

My brother also called after moving his house, and had caught about fifteen crappies, keeping a limit of fish over 12 inches, also released a 22 inch walleye.

Other reports from fishermen I talked to today were predominantly good to great! Another thing is being the mid-week, there was very little traffic. I'd let you know where, but I want to keep the traffic down, that and I don't take a gps with me!

Keep the encouraging reports coming!! Have a blast fishing and be adventurous! Brent

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
