Scoop fishing thread
« on: May 21, 2012, 06:17:31 PM »
Seems like there are at least a few of us with a passion for fishing.  Thought I would take a stab at a fishing thread for us.  Post your pics, fishing reports, articles, and fish tales here for all to enjoy.

Here's an article from the town where I grew up, on the walleye rebound.  When I was growing up, the river was only good for bullheads and cat fish.  Great story.

Dimes, has your time on the river match up with Louie Stout's article?

Was to go fishing yesterday in the port area of Jacksonville, FL.  We typically fish for Redfish, Spotted Sea Trout, and Flounder.  My buddy had water in his gas lines, a burnt connection on his trolling motor, and we got scolded by the MPs for breaking down to close to a military installation.

All I caught was a buzz.    :(



Attached is the photo from previous trip. The big trout was around 5.5lb.

Heading up to my M-I-L's in Door Co. for Memorial Day Weekend.  We'll go out night trolling for Walleye and/or brown trout.  This is my 29 inch Walleye from that weekend 3 years ago.  We got 4 total Walleye, between 26-29, and my son pulled in a 32" brownie.    Fun stuff.

sadly I haven't had any time to fish yet this year, but I'll be taking a bit of a break and heading up to northern WI for some fishing.

Most I can report is that Wind Lake and Eagle lake have terrible weed issues. Eagle is (allegedly) a great bass lake, but they've had to kill it off a few times b/c the weeds.

I fish every like virtually the same. Work the piers and shallows in the early morning with a wacky worm or top waters for bass if they're feeding, then try to drift over some weed beds with live bait for some eating fish while relaxing with a beer.

I wish I could fish Pine Keesus or Beulah lakes soon. had great success on bass on all of em

The link below is an article on ND kids trying to start a school fishing club.  Curious if anything like this present at MU?

Leaving this week for the Eastern Sierra to trout fish on the rivers and streams. Fond memories of summers spent in Minocqua-even had a few pictures on the wall at Bosacki's

How did you do on Mille Lacs this weekend?  Guessing you had a lot of weather to put up with.

Weather was an issue only one day.  I did terrible but my wife pulled in a 27'' walleye and a 30'' northern among the many fish she caught.  Had to throw them all back, walleye I mean, due to the slot limit.

So you are saying that your wife is a keeper?  Any pics....of the big walleye?

Both, but the fishing has declined the past few years. The spring run has been messed up due to varying weather. Lot of annoying vacationers but a pretty big lake with plenty of fish and a lot of fun things to do.

You know Bosacki's closed a couple years ago, right?

It's now called Matt Morgan's.  I haven't stopped in the new place yet, although I stopped in the parking lot to check a tie down on my boat on the way up to my place in Boulder Junction.

I was up there last week (got out of town right before the holiday crowds).  Fished the TFF, picked up a few smallmouth and walleyes, but nothing too spectacular.  Muskie season wasn't open yet (opened this past Saturday).  The week earlier my buddy was up there and caught 100's of smallies, several 6 lbers.
Why is trying to hire Shaka like taking a dump?

The job's not finished til the paperwork is done.

Went out there last year. If you ever go back try the small island towards the middle of the lake and the weedy area at the top.
