Spring rode in on a horse...

Silver Redhorse are getting in the mood, coconut migration is in full swing. We have arrived...

Short session but fast action for Silvers. Males were milting.  Also decent White and a half a Coconut.  Never know what you are going to catch

Fixed Line!

I love it when you can fish for horses with a fixed line. Ton of fun!

It is all perspective!

Nice outing!

Good to see some beefy silvers showing up in the streams.  I bet getting them on the fixed line is awesome.

Sucker run

That's a nice bunch of fish.

The white suckers are just starting to run in my area, but I haven't seen any redhorse yet. It'll be at least another month before the coconut migration starts here.

Hi-ho Silver eh!

Inspiring catch, and beauty silver RH - gotta get my fixed line gear in order. And that's some very strange bycatch...

Coconut...

I've caught some strange stuff but I never would have guessed I'd catch a Coconut while fishing.  Especially in MN.

Coconut

I have never caught a coconut, but I've found them along the bank a couple of times.

The most bizarre thing I've ever snagged was a boot. It was bizarre because my brother caught a matching one ten minutes later.

Did you grip it by the husk?

Cool stuff, man!

Good to see you managed to get out and catch some stuff.

That's a mighty fine looking White, too.

Fishn sure is neat

Quillbacks

Took a walk the other day, Quillbacks are in full spawning mode right now too

Question for Quillback Master Tony:

If Quillback are in spawning mode, does that mean they're less likely to be little pricks?

Flathead Catfish (Check*)
- Subgoal: 10#+

50 Ice Hours
More River Redhorse (Check*)

Spawning quills

You might be able to get one to take an aggressive swing at a lure but it would probably end up snagged. the actively spawning ones don't seem very interested in food
