I don't claim to be an expert fisherman ... just a guy who loves to fish and has been blessed for his efforts. I learned a long time ago that in fishing, and in much of life, you get out of it what you put into it. I work hard when fishing, I study a lot, and always try to learn something on every outing. I hope you can use the information I post on this blog to learn something as well. Thanks for following along!

Well that sucked!

First salmon outing of the fall is in the books! And the results are ... 1) One set of x-rap hooks in the right leg. In the ER for an hour Saturday night. 2) No salmon. (one hit and miss) 3) Boat back-ended in Milwaukee. Motor in the shop until further notice.

Holy Surprise, Batman!

Went out chasing muskies last night. Had a storm come through at sundown so missed out of the best time of the night. Went back out after the storm and caught this in the pitch dark ...
Must have hit it in mid-air. Cranked it in and noticed in the dark that my tally wacker wasn't spinning properly. Pulled it out of the water and tugged on what I thought was a weed. Soon learned differently. That was enough fishing for me last night!

Labor Day Blues

Had a few hours to kill yesterday so I headed back to the familiar spots on Mendota. Almost got sea sick from the boat waves and the temp was in the 90's again. I am SOOOO ready for fall! The day pretty much sucked with the exception of one 15 minute spurt. Had 2 floats go down within 30 seconds of each other and managed to land this 18" smallie and about an 8 lb cat. Then it went back to sucking again. This coming weekend ... it's salmon time!!!!!!!
