Bubbalouie met me at the lake just after 8am. Thought it was going to be a good day as before he arrived I hooked into a decent size trout that came unbuttoned 3 feet from shore. As usual its always a fun time to fish with Bubba!!! The stories flowed and laughter prevailed! Bubba managed to land a few small perch and missed a few trout hits. Ya gotta be quick Bruce!! I did manage to catch 2 trout, 1 @ 12 & 1 @11, Was a great day to be out!! Popeye called and was out on the Chain catching fish and "waving" at camo boaters. Popeye showed up midday and Bruce called it a day. Pops couldn't hook a trout today either. He was the star with the most species of the day though. He caught a largemouth, a few decent perch added to his am of a walleye, some bass and a drum on the Chain. After Popeye left I still had some minnows left so might as well stay some. Couldnt catch another trout, had quite a few hits, and then a couple surprises. Usually this lake only produces small panfish. Pops perch were bigger then usual, then I catch a decent crappie 12 inches. I'm debating its fate and come to the conclusion with my filleting skills, that it needs to swim another day. A few trout misses later my bobbers "cruising around" that cant be the minnow!! Well what a surprise at the end of the line my personal best Crappie!! This sucker was huge!! Measured a little over 14 inches! The fish was released to fight another day! missed a few more trout hits and called it a day.

Multispecies day produced the following for the team:

Rainbow trout
Lake perch
Crappie
Largemouth bass
Walleye
Freshwater drum

Popeye if you caught something I missed here add it to the list!!!

GREAT DAY+GREAT FRIENDS=AWESOME TIME!!!!!

Yep, especially when Geo brings some brownies, or cookies or .....

Geo- you know I can't be quick with the rod- I just thought we needed a Tiger Muskie to add to the mix or species, and I want them to take it good!! Besides, I was multitasking in my mind- do it all the time, just can't remember what the hell I was multitasking about-

thanks guys for a good time-

Blabba louie

:oops: oh... maybe that's the problem!

No big Sammiches, Bubba's on a strict diet- wants the 12" of ice to hold him up. Besides, he had just stopped for his second breakfast- that's why he was late getting there.

As for videos- they'd be all blanked out with Popeye giving those "waving" gestures to non-compliant parties-

As for pictures- we'd only bring a camera with us if Esox was there- you know- for the 50+ Muskies (maybe that's why we didn't ask him? didn't want to take a picture of his fish?

Oh no. No more videos. Still photos only. With them there is plausible deniability... or at least they can be photoshopped.

Thanks for sharing!

I think you'll be safe to treat yourself to some more big "Sammiches". If 12" can support a vehicle, you should be A-Ok. :lol:

Sounds like a enjoyable day was had.

Popeye- that Game Warden was only "escorting" me out. He was going to write me up for parking the boat in the lot sideways taking up 8 parking spaces... Had do a lot of talking to get out of it. He finally said "Oh, that's Popeye's boat" - "Yes it is"- "Well I guess I can let it go this time- Sailors don't know sheeet about on-shore fishing....

If you guys were on the North side, I would have parked the boat closer to the edge and fished from it.
