  4. Fig Rig Rod warranty?

    Thanks guys! Ya I think I am going to switch to a new rod because this is my second to do the same thing. The first I thought was my fault but two and there is something wrong.
  5. Fig Rig Rod warranty?

    Was just out tonight and got into some weeds so went to jerk them free and SNAP! Does anyone know fig rigs warranty policy and possibly a number to call?

    Sorry it took so long for the pics. I went out the next night and we boated three. Seven in two nights aint to bad. missed and lost about a half dozen too. In order the size goes 36, 44, 38, 36, 36.5, 33, 35.

    My partner and I caught 4 skis tonight. 44, 36.5, 36, 33! forgot the digital camera so only have cellphone pics and am to lazy to get them on here right now. They will be on tomorrow though.
  8. Fishing at night this time of year?

    Just got 4 in the boat and lost 2 tonight trolling depth raiders. One of the best nights this year. Pics will be on the muskie pike photo sharing blog tomorrow.

    I disagree with you main butter but understand where you are coming from. I have caught some muskies that were more lazy then others big time. But i have had some great fights from muskies, much better than big carp. The reason carp are hard to real in is because they just use their weight and size and put themselves sideways. Had quite a few also that were lazy. never had big runs from my carp, and i use much smaller gear then my muskie gear. Also that 48 inch muskie would have more than likely spooled you in the river current also.

    What a story! That fish is amazing, and great pics! Now thats a guy who deserves a fish like that. No car only a boat. Fishes everyday. 4500 hours logged and 25000 miles on his boat in seven years. Thats awesome!
  12. 59x29 caught on Vermillion There is 59 inches on tape. Looks a bit bigger! I am 6 foot on the mark just so you know. I measured before the pic
  13. 59x29 caught on Vermillion

    Okay I am entitiled to my opinion so here it is. I am sick of these terrible pics and people expecting there not to be grief! You just caught a 59 or 60 or whatever it is and you cant seem to get a better pic. whats the other guy or two doing when you have the tape on it! take a pic there! what about flippin the camera on that first pic. BINGO, full fish! I mean come on that is a god like fish and thats all the better you can do. How long does it really take to snap off pictures on todays digital cameras. There are no excuses if you ask me. I have got better pics with my cell phone by myself. Im not saying dont claim whatever size you are claiming, even though my opinion is the size never seems to match up, but dont expect people to not give you s%$& when you dont provide good evidence.
  14. Favorite lure in the fall?

    Whats your go to fall lure? Ive done well on shad raps two years in a row. just boated two and three follows on one wednesday.
  15. On the water angler ethics

    Thats the thing. this lake is not a huge lake by any means so I do try to always give everybody there space. But some of these a$@holes are repeating offenders! They didnt do it by accident one time they are either just that stupid or that big of a@$holes! either way they are not gonna stop if nothing is said or done. I think that I am just going to start calling the dnr on the ones who are making the wakes and ripping up the weeds on the shore, and start kindly asking the pleasure boaters to stop. I think they just dont know any better.
