Fish Catching Travel

I have been a little under the weather the last few days so did not manage to get out, but that will change this week.  I did get a couple of pictures from the Shoedog the other day who has his grandson for 2 weeks.


Nice ones Nolan.  Those are some serious bream.

What is better than taking the grandson fishing.  The world would be a better place if more people did just that.


And my buddy Jeffish just sent me this picture.


A nice 12lb blue cat from lake Dunlap.

Jeffish and Korbin spend the weekend at Lake Dunlap and Korbin was the chief perch jerker for limb line bait.  Korbin is a fishin’ fool and it is good to see a kid not on the computer but outdoors.  Taking your kids and grandkids outdoors is a good thing for everyone.  So congrats to both of you on the nice cat!


I also heard from Austin Aaron on his last trip to the coast.

Hey Doug,

It’s been awhile since I checked in.  I’m looking forward to the musky reports.  I’ll be sharing them with some friends in the hopes of convincing them that we should make the trip someday.

I’ve only been able to make one trip to the bay lately (POC).  The heat was pretty brutal.  I lasted until about noon but was able to land 9 reds before quitting.  I never seem to have anything but cooler pics so nothing worth passing along.  Most were over 25” in 8” of water so it was a fun morning despite the heat.  I think I’ll wait a few more weeks to let the heat break before trying again.

I hope you pound them up there.


Man I hear you on the heat thing.  There is a fine line between hot and tough, and the heat has been tough for weeks now.  I know some of you are wanting more saltwater reports but I am not a half day saltwater guy, so the last few weeks the reports have been few and far between.  But that will change this week with one trip already scheduled for Wednesday.  Thanks for checking in and believe me, if you and your buddies make that trip you will not be disappointed.  The folks at Muskie Bay are great and you can launch or leave it in the water on Crow Lake, or drive less than 20 miles (some as close as 5) and launch on multiple places on Lake of the Woods.


My buddy Aaron was down in Rockport this weekend but I was not able to fish with them. As I was laying on the couch Sunday feeling a little poorly I got a text that said go outside and look up.


Victoria from the air.  Nothing like traveling in style.

They were right over the house.  Not sure how they did but it must be nice to make a trip to the coast without the drive.  Catch you next time.


Sometimes I am amazed at the responses I get from assorted providers of fishing supplies, and the one we got from Hummingbird still astounds me.  We put a Hummingbird 688 sonar/GPs on the Mako and for some reason it has trouble finding a satellite.  So thinking it might be a problem with the unit I called them for some tech support.  The lady I spoke with had the following comment when I asked her why it seemed to take longer than any unit I have ever had: “It can take up to 20 minutes to find a satellite.”  Are you kidding me?  A GPS for a boat that can take up to 20 minutes to do what it is supposed to do.  Thanks for no help.  That actually is not only stupid, it sure could make it worthless at a new fishing destination.  So be advised if you are thinking of buying one.  Ridiculous!


The plan this week will be a little bass fishing in the morning, then Wednesday off to the Gulf with my buddy Chris.  From the reports I am reading and hearing we might actually catch a few.  So keep stopping in and thanks for reading my stuff.

Good Luck and Tight Lines
