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.

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.    
    • Thanks guys I will look into them.
