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.


Phantom Fish

A man was stopped by a game-warden in Governor Nelson State Park recently with two buckets of fish leaving a lake well-known for its fishing. The game warden asked the man, “Do you have a license to catch those fish?” The man replied to the game warden, “No, sir. These are my pet fish.” “Pet fish?!” the warden replied. “Yes, sir. Every night I take these here fish down to the lake and let them swim around for a while. I whistle and they jump back into their buckets, and I take em home.” “That’s a bunch of hooey! Fish can’t do that!” The man looked at the game warden for a moment, and then said, “Here, I’ll show you. It really works.” “O.K. I’ve GOT to see this!” The game warden was curious. The man poured the fish in to the river and stood and waited. After several minutes, the game warden turned to the man and said, “Well?” “Well, what?” the man responded. “When are you going to call them back?” the game warden prompted. “Call who back?” the man asked. “The FISH.” “What fish?” the man asked.

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”.

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

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.

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!! <:}}}}<<<{
