April fishing
« on: April 06, 2014, 04:00:31 PM »
Went fishing to bring back some groceries from the river.  Jay's been catching walleye pretty consistently, and has taken home some good stringers the past two weeks.  I made my way to the river and Jay joined me about 1 AM.  The bite was off, and the fishing stayed slow for most of the early hours.  About 3AM the moon began to set, and we had several hookups.  I'm pretty sure Jay hooked into a giant some goliath boils in the glare, and his rod stayed bent over solid for about 30 seconds of panic until it shook off...could have been a beaver..who knows?
I finally landed my largest walleye yet..24.5" a fat 6lb fish.  Couldn't land another one, although several shook off as we nearly landed them.  Snagged a few quillback suckers, and Jay landed a healthy white bass.
Crystal, Breelyn, and I enjoyed a great supper, (and even breakfast the next morning) from the walleye, and the whitebass is ready for tomorrow's dinner.

Hope to get back out there soon


Now, these guys are starting to show up, too.  Had some nice fish lost yesterday in a 1 hour window...nearly busted off the jetfoot getting to them...a little welding repair, and I'll be back out as the nice weather keeps rolling in.

Good stuff Travis! Tell the ladies we said hello.
