Vacation on a Lake


A couple goes on vacation to a fishing resort in northern Minnesota. The husband likes to fish at the crack of dawn. The wife likes to read. One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a short nap. Although she isn’t familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and continues to read her book. Along comes the game warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside her and says,”Good morning, Ma’am, what are you doing?”

“Reading my book,” she replies, thinking isn’t that obvious?

“You’re in a restricted fishing area,” he informs her.

“But officer, I’m not fishing. Can’t you see that?”

“Yes, but you have all the equipment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”

“If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with rape,” says the woman.

“But I haven’t even touched you,” says the game warden.

“That’s true, but you do have all the equipment.”

MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads.

Guess Who’s Back

And so it has begun. Sorry that I took almost a two month hiatus. Just was so disgusted on how shitty that this ice fishing season was. I went out one time after my last post and it was horrible the only thing that i was able to catch was a cold. Lewfus and myself sat in our little ice shack for 6+ hours and didn’t even get a nibble. On top of the crappy fishing there was only good ice for about 3 to 4 weeks top. The only thing good that has come out of the short ice fishing season Is that I’m out catfishing about 3 weeks earlier then I was last year.

What a beautiful Day 70 degrees for the beginning of March. You will here no complaints on that. Last year at this time there was still ice on the river. Every boat lauch in the area was packed. Everyone had the same thought as me. Time to get the boat out and fish.

We got to the boat landing at about 0730. Boat in the water and to our first hole by about 0800. The morning started off very fast. Baited up my first Pole threw it in and was baiting up my second and had a fish tugging on the first before the second was ready to go in the water. Realed him in wasnt the biggest fish I have ever caught”Photo top left” but he was the fish one of 2012 so I was pretty happy. This first spot was a gold mine we caught about 15 fish in about an hour we kept about 8 of them as most were pretty small.

When we went to the next spot the wind started to pick up a little bit and the fishing slowed down for the rest of the day we hit about 15 different holes and by about 1500 were both had our limit. once that wind hit it was like a light switch had been turned off because the fish just didn’t want to bite.

At about 1100 we got to one of our better producing holes in the past. Every time we go to this hole we always catch big fish and today was no different. I caught the 5 pounder in the photo above. which turned out to be the biggest fish of the day. This guy hit like a freight train. He hit the bait and took off and almost took my brand new Quantium Triax fishing pole with him. If it wouldn’t have been for the reel catching on the edge of the boat it would have been gone. Usually they don’t hit like that until mid summer when the water is warmer and the fish are more active. Guess he didn’t get that memo. The feeling of a nice fish tugging on the end of your pole has to feel as good as when a alcoholic gets his first drink of the day.

All in all it was a good day on the river. the fish were a little on the small side but we ended up catching about 45 Cats in total. Not to bad for early March catfishing in Wisconsin. Will take it over ice fishing any day of the year.

Until the next fishin hole

Well back at mud lake again. Just Can’t get away from this lake this year. Usually have decent luck the first week or so and move on the another lake but this year this lake has a special feel. Today was a blustery 12 degrees and probably a 5- 10 mile an hour wind out of the north and 100% sunshine. I didn’t get out to the lake very early about 1400 and of course everyone that I talked to said that they were biting all morning long till about noon and then it was a light switch and they just shut off. So i Fished on the western side of the lake where everyone else was fishing and caught 9 little Gills and one little Crappie. In 3 1/2 hours nothing worth keeping. The ones that were biting were biting on chartreuse with gold sparkles and nothing else. I was fishing in about 5 feet of water on about 5 inches of ice. Not bad gained three inches of ice in about 5 1/2 days.

Alright back on the ice again 2 days in a row. Feel like I need to make up for lost time. It was a Cool day about 20 degrees and a very light southern wind. I Caught 21 Blue Gills and 2 Crappie. The morning started off pretty slow fished from about 0700 till 1200 and only caught one small blue gill. At noon I moved to the south central part of the lake and it was like fishing on a different lake. I caught 21 fish in 2 1/2 hours. I was using a Purple and goldish orange jig. It wasnt the weird color jig that threw me off it was what I was doing to catch them. I would go all the way to the bottom Keep it there for about 5 seconds raise it up about three feet for about 10 seconds and then lower it back down to within 6 inches of the bottom and hold it there. At no point was I jigging. It was really weird. Never caught gills like that before. This was all in about 7-8 feet of water on two inches of ice. All in all it turned out to be one of the best days of ice fishing that ive ever had. All summer long I slatter the catfish but on the ice it seems that im a fish out of water “No pun intended”.

Until the next fishing hole

Well back on the ice again. I went to one of my favorite early ice spots. Although on a normal year this would be mid to late ice. But this year its early ice. There was probably 100 people on the ice today. All of them probably thinking the same as me. “Get on the ice and just fish because you don’t know how long it’s going to be there.”

25 degrees mostly cloudy and just a slight breeze

Used green jigs and waxxies

Fishing in about 7 feet of water

Fished for 6 hours and caught 3 bluegills

Between hours of 0700- 1300

 

Until the next fishing hole

Well Look what time of year that it finally is. Been waiting for this day for 2 months. I didn’t think that was ever going to come. Rock lake went from no ice on the first of January to 7 inches on the 7th. On the 7th I had gotten 3 texts from people saying that people we fishing on rock lake. I had my doubts so I packed up all of my gear and set out for Rock Lake. I got there and the park was full of cars. I talked to a guy that was coming off of the lake and he told me there was 7 inches of ice and the gill’s were just hammering waxxies. So I set off on my first ice fishing adventure of the year. While I was fishing I saw one guy come out drill his hole sit down and catch 25 keeper Bluegills in about 30 minutes. There must have been the right vegetation where he drilled his hole. I myself have never had much luck on rock lake. My 11 fish was the best that I had ever done summer or winter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was 40 degrees and sunny with no wind.

The ice was 7 inches thick.

I was using green and yellow jigs with waxxies.

Fishing in about 8 feet of water.

In 3 hours I caught 11 bluegills all were keepers never had to throw any back.

Fished between the hours of 2PM-5PM.

Trout Fishing 2011


This year on opening day of trout season the weather was actually decent for the first time in 4 years. We had 3 years of cold, rainy and miserable. So it was great to have a nice opening day this year. This year the fishing was kind of slow. We spent 2 hours at our opening hole that we always start. Between 6 of us fishing we caught i think 2 keepers. Usually we catch about half of our fish at this spot. This year it took us about 10 spots and most of the day. Maybe the nice weather was a double edged sword. Finally at about 3 in the afternoon we all limited out.

It wasnt that we werent catching any fish it was that they we all between 5-8 inches long. It was as if we were following the stocking truck. Everyone that we talked to said the same thing. With that said maybe in a couple of years there will be some great fishing in the area that we go. I normally would share the area that im fishing in because i feel that good fishing is for all to enjoy.   In this case I am choosing not to only because it already gets fished really hard and most people would think that it’s a total waste of time. For most people it’s about catching as many fish as they can. but for me its more about hanging out with my friends and getting away for the busy city life.

On the Left is fuzzy he is one of the nicest guys that you could ever meet. but the guy has the worst luck  in the world. If something is going to go bad at some point during the day its probably going to be fuzzy. As you can see fuzzy is not holding a fish. This picture was taken right after he caught probably the biggest trout of the day. He pulled it up on to shore where he is crouched down there the fish flopped around spit the hook and went in the water. It was probably a 16 or 17 inches.

All in all we had a pretty good day. Didnt catch any state record fish but we sure did have a good time. These days its hard for all of us to get together because we don’t all live in the same area anymore. I live in Fort Atkinson, Ev is moving to Florida, and Fuzzy still lives in Boscobel. So these opening days of Trout season will be the only time that we can get together. We are all very religious about being there on opening day so im sure that there will be many more to come.

Until the next fishing hole.

WELCOME ALL


Hello everyone I am new to blogging. i made this blog to share with you my fishing adventures and stories. Hopfully you can pick up a helpful tip or trick along the way. We here in Wisconsin are between river fishing and ice fishing so it may be a little slow on blogging for the next couple weeks. Catfishing is my first love i love to just sit in a boat kicked back and shoot the crap with a buddy or two waiting for a Kitty to hit my pole. the picture attached to this is of a 16 pound cat out of the Rock river between Jefferson and Johnson creek in Jefferson county. Quite large cat for this area of the rock river. If all works like i plan you will be reading this post. Have my fingers crossed that it will work the first time that i try. Till the next time. CARPE LANGOUSTA!! <:}}}}<<<{
