Crazy Cold Cats

Recommended Posts

I wasn't going to let the cold weather come between me and a fun catfish trip. cool.gif

A quick and impromptu gathering of some the Belle Plaine cat league guys was organized. Some were able to make it most could not.

Myself, Hanson, Larry (LFC) and Ed braved the cool temps and managed to ice 20+ cats. No monsters but a few nice ones mixed in with some smaller fish.

Total morning bite, very slow afternoon.

But no doubt about it, a very fun time.

Thanks Guys!

oh yeah, I was pulling in fish too, but you'll have to put up with Hanson's mug as I was running the camera all day grin.gif

Hey Larry & Darren, Good Times eh?? smile.gif

This trip was the 1st Annual Belle Plaine Cat League winter fun event! smile.gif I say 1st Annual because I think some of the other guys are going to want to come next year. We started planning this event this fall at the end of the year party. Finally found a weekend when a few guys were available and it turned out to be one of the coldest days on the winter. smile.gif

The only league guys who were interested in braving -10 with a 20 mph wind were Larry Haugh, Ed Church, Dtro, and myself. Thankfully... the fish cooperated for awhile and we all had some action, probably 20 cats caught total with Larry & Ed getting a couple dandies! smile.gif

The Belle Plaine Cat League is a small (but growing) group of catfish anglers. The League fishes every other Friday night through the summer. Emphasis is on FUN!, Friendship, and healthy competition. smile.gif I can't wait for this summer already.

Glad you guys had fun!

That's it guys!

I'm officially jonsin' for some cats! Methinks I'll have to go this week sometime.

Thanks for the vids.

Say Chris, what's with the two-hole set-up? Fishing in current, or just trying to keep the 'ducer and line holes separate?

Had my Ice Buster Bobber set up in the far hole and was jigging in the close hole with the flasher. Just turned out that all the fish were caught in the back hole. There was no current where we were fishing.

I have to admit even though those kitties don't fight as hard in the winter I had a great time catching them. Thank you Hanson for getting me on my first cat through the ice. Boy am I glad we had a good heater in my house. Brrrrr it was cold. Larry my e-mail is [email protected] grin.gif

    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.
