Big mistake related to fishing

Recommended Posts

With the mild winter, I started thinking about open water fishing and tackle maintenance about two months earlier than usual. It's been torture.

I hear ya Bro...

My Fishing Buddy gave me a 50 inch drift sock for Christmas... And it blew on the embers...

Then I had to make reservations for my New Moon of June campsite on Winnie because the available sites were going fast.

And tinder was put on the glowing embers...

Then I got "The Trolling Bible" as a late X-mass present...

And things lit a flame...

Then I had to reserve the dates for my 5 day Musky Hunt near Longville in August for my bachelor party...

And the open water itch has burst into full flame!

Seriously... I can tell you every day that I'm taking off and every "Fishing Trip" that I will be taking for the entirety of 2007!

I agree with Gunflint on this one, the new Cabelas Fishing Master catalog is hard enough to deal with, now this....also all the lakes I plan on hitting this year and projects on the boat I want to start....okay enough...I have to walk away now grin.gif

Oh don't get me started on "Boat Enhancements."

I'm installing a GPS finder, and moving my piece of rotten donkey S**T X-25 up to the front and Trolling motor mounting the transducer.

Then I'm also installing 3 Rod Holders...

And I'm altering my Trolling motor Battery Compartment Tray to hold 2 Batteries, so I don't have to change them out as often... THEN, I'm debating installing an on board charger.

On top of all that I'm looking to buy a new truck or SUV to tow it all with... But I'm having a rough time finding what I want in my $11,000 price range!

Last year I bought my boat and had it sitting in the yard on March 10th...

My fiance asked no questions when she saw me put on my Carhart Artic Gear and walk out the door with a six pack and my fishing rod.

I did a really nice job of organizing my tackle box, and now I feel better. At least for the moment.

    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
    • Work related travel.  Never been to the northeast before and wanted to experience it as much as possible so I drove and took a couple extra days.   Original plans had me touring some stuff in the DC area but its been a little more difficult and expensive to wander about than I’d hoped.   Get me to some water!!!
    • Most of the fish I've caught out of the abyss were caught just above the thermocline or high in the water column (1'-15' down). A friend of mine once caught a 31" hog walleye on a top raider over 100'+ of water. That's just one of the many hogs to come into my boat that were 0'-5' under the surface in mega deep water. So, keep your lures above the kill zone on slot lakes and you'll still get bit.
    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
    • Tried my hand at making Nashville hot chicken last night. It didn't turn out exactly like I expected but it was still good.  
    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.
