  1. I love eating flatheads and blue catfish I just didn’t know what to do with it. I couldn’t get it in my live well in one piece maybe not in 2 pieces. I didn’t have a cooler. I wanted to continue fishing.
  2. Got to 107 ramp at 6:30am ran towards the dam fished points and some off shore structure. Caught a few small bass on magnum trick worm went to Indian creek marina had a really good bass on came off at the boat. Decided to take a ride to the south fork area it was muddy so I ran back to the main lake and fished all the way back into a small creek at the very back in really shallow water there was a bunch of baitfish getting chased around so I threw everything back there that resembled baitfish with no luck. I picked up a brush hog started pitching to some standing timber I felt a big thump then watched my line slowly start moving. When I set the hook I knew it wasn’t a bass I fought the thing for a good 10 minutes it kept wrapping around trees and trying to go under the boat when it finally came up I wasn’t bothered by not having my net in the boat because it wouldn’t fit in my net anyhow. This is my biggest fish I’ve caught on rod n reel. 39.84lbs Flathead. Released in good shape. It made the front deck of my boat into a slip n slide and I think it ruined a fresh spool of florocarbon line I think it’s been stretched to much now it has a ton of memory. Caught a couple more bass. 2 keepers on the day
  3. I fished up there last October we missed the good bite by a week. Still caught plenty of fish almost every fish we caught were out of Lawrence lake a backwater on the Minnesota side throwing chatterbaits. We stayed in Stoddard Wisconsin at Waters edge resort it is about 10 miles south of Lacrosse. It was a nice place to stay had there own boat ramp, restaurant and a bar within walking distance. Great view of the river and good prices.
  4. Thank you I’ll have those checked.
  5. When ideling the motor will die and I need to pump the primer bulb to restart. Then the motor will run great for a while then die again I’ll prime again. I’ve changed the gas cap this was Rangers idea the dealer had the boat they can’t find anything. Just recently I had a alarm for the fuel filter water seperater to be replaced since then this problem has been more frequent. This has been the most frustrating experience
  6. I’ve got a ranger aluminum boat it’s about a year old it has a 150 pro xs on it. The fuel line has a primer bulb I don’t see primer bulbs on the newer glass boats. Is this primer bulb nessasary. I’ve been having issues with fuel pressure since early summer the dealer and ranger have been no help.
  7. Thinking about coming down on Monday to fish Greer access hopefully for some smallmouth. Has anybody been down this way that can give me a river condition report and how the roads are. Looks like this area got more participation then where I’m from. Thanks for any info

  9. I know my oil is kinda low in the tank I got about 3" in the resevoir could it be telling me it's low
  10. Last Saturday I fished lake of the ozarks. I ran from Coffman up to Indian creek motor ran great fished awhile then went back to Coffman so my partner could the bathroom. Just after starting the motor I got 6 beeps from the motor. I checked the pisser it was good the motor never shut down so I ran nice and easy back to the ramp the motor ran great no more beeps so after the bathroom break I started the motor up again and got 6 more beeps the motor seemed fine the rest of the day but always got the beeps just after starting the motor. I called the dealer Monday the service guy said its a low voltage issue starting battery is weak. The motor starts fine I'm running helix 9s I keep the console unit on standby while not running the battery is less then a year old I keep the batteries on a Minn Kota charger. Anybody have experience with this issue? Thanks for any info
  11. Hi Mike I think I passed you while fishing across from Hawaiian island if that was you in the Crestliner I was in the silver aluminum Ranger. It was a beautiful day out there caught a bunch of bass nothing big biggest was 17" largemouth. Most fish were on a small brown jig and a shaky head tight to steeper banks. Now I'm wishing I would have tried a swim bait.
  12. Thanks for the info. I'll report how it goes tomorrow.
  13. I'm coming down tomorrow to fish for the day I was wondering if it is to cold for a top water bite.. Thanks in advance for any info.
  14. Was it common to catch pike while bass fishing or do I need to fish for pike to catch them I've never caught one
