2007 was a great year for catch-n huge bass!

BP posted about his lack of success last year for big bass last year,
mainly because he didn't get his line wet too often!
I on the other hand, had a great year, even though someone stole my boat the fall before.
In fact I think not having a boat helped me go more, because it was such a hassle to get my boat rigged up and ready that I just didn't get out much in 2006. I fished a whole lot in 07' because
now with my float tube I can just keep it in my car ready to go anytime I want to wet a line after work, or I can slide my kayak in the van and head off to any out of the way lake and catch huge looonkers like these:

this one was close to 21 inches and fat, est. wt. 6#

This one was over 22 inches, but was quite skinny. 5.5 ets wt.

Another toadie over 5 #

My biggest Bass this year were on a Catch-n Ring-N TUBE
Zoom super flukes also brought me some good uns too...

March Gem club outing

We had our last ice fishing outing of the year saturday, it was another successful one too. We had 6 kids and we met up with another youth fishing club called Young Fishers in Redwing, then we headed down past Alma Wisconsin to fish some of the backwaters of the mississippi. The crappies were not in a biting moode today, but we did get some largemouth bass. (no closed season there!) and bluegills were there thick, but they were finicky for sure, 2 pound test and the tinyest jig were needed to finesse them into biting. Most of the kids got a few fish, and they also had fun exploring the shorelines. For lunch we went up to the nice RV that Ted from young fishers brought and ate some hotdogs and beans, while Dave Lindmark shared from a book that used fishing to illustrate Christian spiritual applications. Then we hit the ice for a couple more hours, Jack found a couple of nice crappies. Praise God for another great outing!

Here are the pics!
