Ok here are a couple that I recall.

First one my buddy and I were fishing a local metro lake and I was trying a new bait (Nori Bug and it was new at the time) and second or third cast I had a bite so I set the hook and made a big deal out of it because he was making fun of me for throwing that bait. Well a good rod bend and the fish was gone I said "you know that was probably the next state record" well in a few casts later he gets a fish on his plastic worm sets the hook and reels in a 2-3 lb bass as he is on hooking it he notices my bait in the fishes throat so he looks at me and says" world record Hugh?, here is your bait back. And he handed me my red shad norobi bug back.

Same buddy and I were fishing a tourney on Whitefish and I had a brand new Yammamoto rod with a brand new stradic on it. We were fishing near an inlet to a marina and I had cast out my bait and was dead sticking it so not paying attention I set my rod down to get a drink or something as a big pleasure cruiser was just entering the marina. Well as you can guess I watched in horror as my rod traveled across the back deck over the gunnel into the drink. It had apparently got caught on the boat entering the marina so i thought and I was not going to follow the boat and ask him if I could check his boat to see if my rod was still connected. I was pretty unhappy thinking that a brand new $300 rod/reel was lost to such stupidity on my part, it really dropped my spirits at the time. Well we kept on fishing in the area and about 30 min later my buddy indicates he has a bite and I should get the net ready. He sets the hook and starts to reel but thinks he has weeds so as continues pulling it up out of the water pops a rod tip and we realize he has caught my rod/rell combo I am very happy about this and grab the tip and pull my setup to the boat and to my amazement I can feel a fish on the line so I reeled on a 14" inch fish. It was better then winning the tourney for me and apparently it wasn’t the boat entering the marina that pulled my rod in it was the fish.

Good Fishing!!

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
