  1. I know this is vague Tman, but every spot you just mentioned had people and fish being caught, stopped at all 3.
  2. Nice catch Tman!!!!!! Agree with rumblefish on the salmon river comment , that shore was lined with cars......traffic and conversations going into the wee hours of the morning, but the fish were responsive and if ya get away from the people you have your own little pod to yourself......nothing like surface hits man!.....other shore was crazy with boat traffic........definately the most people I have seen on that lake including shore and boat fisherman in a long while..........hope everyone had success.
  3. because these fish eat alewife, when you fillet them you need to take off the red meat along their lateral line. That red meat is very oily due to the alewife diet. if you leave it on they will taste fishy. trim the red meat off so it is just a nice white fillet and you will enjoy them, no matter what size.

    Point taken bada bing, but I assure you it released fine. I have a fishery background.....and no way to hold a fish is good...hand under the gill plate,...deadly.....hands on removing slim coat, deadly.....6 of 9 hook points in the mouth, deadly......I can keep going. ....ultimately it is stress and lactic acidosis that takes a big fish. Water was cold, fish caught shallow, a allowed it to revive in live well for over an hour with a great aeration. Fish remained upright, active, and quite lively, as for internal bleeding.....that's all your call....did my best with facts of good fish mangement and experience to back it up........good luck to you this season, and I will remember to do better holding fish.

    Big laker today Fishing wasn't great today but put a big laker in the boat, took the planer board under. Put my neighbor on the rod and the battle was on......took alot of great runs, came to the net at 34 inches and bouncing just over 17lbs on the bogo. Biggest laker I've put in my boat on this lake. We released her to fight again...state released fish with left pectoral fin clip......good day on water. Was truly a day maker!
  6. Alex, you sure it wasn't my spoon!!!!! After all, we do think alike......but seriously.... I broke on 2 good bows in that area the last 2 weeks, all that jumping and running. they have been swallowing them, and the teeth have been crushing my lines, been re-tying after each encounter. Great story, as I said to ya this week end.......Dialed in.
  7. Very nice Rusty, Glad you got the bugs out. It looks like you've found the "Column" of water Alex , I, and a few others have been playing in. Keep at it, all kinds of suprises like fall Eyes in it as you have caught. Find what works and stick to it. and oh yeah......find the bait first and the catching is much easier. This time of year it isn't hard to find it where your fishing. Dont be afraid to do circles around those areas where you catch little bows.......the big ones are with em.....and the speed changes on your turns can sometimes trigger them to bite. Get that camera going so we can see some pics!
  8. nice outing Alex, Came up your way after my inspection, by then the south wind brought the weeds, I managed another smaller bow and a couple lakers.....and a whole lot of salad.......knew i was in them small bows....had three hard releases on the high rods with nobody home......swatting and missing the stackers. went back south to find even more weeds.....gave up...only lakers in the box with that one nice one.
  9. Thats a good one, way to go!
  10. they're running high as ususal, 3 colors, 40 ft rigger has been good. Eye action was good at night when bait was in, wasn't great but good, havent been in the area where i usually day catch them. Silvers are with everything else is on the bait, got to find it and youll be in fish. the fleas are better in some places than others. today was a laker/bass and small bow day.....found no keeper bows but many small ones. Bass would clear the water and get you excited for a minute. yesterdays wind mixed it up in my area, even the lakers were high up.
  11. Short trip this morning still yielding some nice bow action. All rods, wire, core and riggers firing. In all 6 bows, 2 small browns, couple bass, and a couple lakers. Weeds not bad, fleas a little worse, but mangeable.
  12. nice job,....they love the blueberry muffin!!!!!!!!
  13. way to go bud, keep hammering them, still playing with trout over top of the hill, well get together soon man.
  14. Had a good morning on the lake with my boys and their buddy. Found some bait and set up into the rainbows again. riggers and core were firing, had a good triple of keeper silvers at one point, jumping over each other, had the boys laughing......but only got one to the boat out of that group. had a tangled mess as you can imagine. rest of the morning filled with lakers, small bows, bass and a nicer eater brown. weather was great, rain not too bad, fleas were manageable and weeds were a little more spread out. good day for silvers.
  15. nice table of eyes man, that pic today got me thinkin bout that otisco gold again!!!!!!!!
