Well, Hammer Time... This is hard for me to admit, but I didn't get out at all the whole hard water season. With the kids and stuff, it has been very difficult. I know TapTapTap has been getting out once in a while. Right now, I am just looking forward to the opener.
Where'd you go? And by a slow bite, do you mean nothing?
Speaking of TapTapTap, what the heck happened to him? He got on here and posted something about Costa Rica Marlins and tells us to stay tuned, and then nothing. I didn't even know he was down there, but it wouldn't surprise me. Maybe he took a picture and he'll send it. He sure has been shy about posting lately. If he keeps this up, he will go from being an introvert to a downright recluse living off the land in the BWCA.
I was out on shields. It was the first time on the lake but I call that fish hunting.
By slow; my day went like this. Got on the lake around 3:30 pm. Drilled seven holes along and into the mud hole for that bay. Looking to bide my time until sunset, I played around by catching small sunnies, even smaller perch, and to add insult on top of it a couple ten inch walleyes.
But the crappies never showed up for me. But nobody I talked to was catching any either.
Bait of the day was; minnows, waxies and euro larva.
