Best to get all the kinks worked out before the big girls are out in full force

Welcome to my world Aanderud Except for the parts that involve a fish on the other end of the line. :|

My night wasn't quite as entertaining!!!!

But we did pick up two flats last night. Tried some snag fishing instead of the creeks and it paid off with a nice 32 by 19 flat to start things off.

Mr. Special landed a couple sturgeon on crawlers and kept throwing it out there......and was rewarded with a cute little 22 by 12 flattie.

The weather last night was really getting me excited about the summer. We ran from Shakopee to the Carver Trestle and back and hit a handful of spots that I haven't fished yet this year.

Thanks Phil for finding some nice bullies for us and hopefully we can get out again soon.

Wow......

I hope he was drinking when this was going on......

Would have made for a painful night otherwise.

That was a great story! As said before better to get the kinks out now. I already lost an anchor this year up on the Rainy River, roughly 24hrs after I bought it mad So I think I should be good from here on out..........

Hey did he leave anything in that shubbery for me to find later this year whistle

Oh my, what a comical night. Fishing with me, you usually get a little unintentional comedy...but last night was hilarious.

First cast, straight overhead and I forgot there was a tree RIGHT above us, 6 feet above my head. That didn't work so well with the 8 foot rod.

Second cast over in yonder creek, but I lobbed it too high and it looped over a branch.

Third cast, chucked it lower but too far, over a mud bank...

A few casts later I decided to test how close I could get it to the snag...twice in a row I got a bit too close smile

Add in the anchor rope knot fiasco (hey at least I didn't tie that one) and the fish getting caught in the anchor, and it was quite a night.

All of that, and NO BEER!!! But, I did get a flathead.

Was out again last night. No flats, but we had four runs on live bait. We managed to boat three channels though. For a while, the channels were snappin pretty often. We missed a dozen or so bites to get those three fish. I just have a feeling that we're over the hump.

Finally got out for a bit with Brent and my brother. Brent put on a good lesson for us putting down 4 flats biggest being 24lbs. Not but 10mins after Brents 24lb flat my brother lands a 29lb flat and shows Brent up. Ended up getting 6 Flats and a Channel and got home well before midnight! It was a nice night to be out!

I make sure I cast off my fist bullhead and the rest of the night usually goes smoothly. Caught a 10-12 pounder early this morning it still needs to warm up yet.

    •     Free market Republicans????  HAHAHA,!!!!
    • Please God, make Keith Ellison the head of the DNC
    •   Doubtful we would have seen it by now. The bigger issue has always been possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian opps to influence the election - and who knew what and who ordered what. That's the big fish. You just have to be patient, all in due time Uncle Bill.
    •   I didn't waste a vote on him..   The garbage can had as much a chance of winning.   You owe the brave voters of Trump a great debt of gratitude for saving this country from hillary..   That's one big beer you owe the "trumpers"...   Bigly....  
    • Picked up some track at FF and put it on the floor and ramp. Also added a couple sections of e track on the wall to hang tie downs etc. Doesn't look like I'm going to get any use out of it this year but will be ready for next year. Plan on taking out track on floor in summer as it can get slippery and going to put in a couple wheel chocks for motorcycles.
    • July 2016   This was the first time 3 of us had ever been to the ocean and the first time any of us had been to the Pacific. Man, that water was cold!    
    • There's a blessing on the ground.  It's coming down.  It's coming down
      Snow pains on the motor veinsSnow Days
      Keeps your business on the ground
      It's coming down
      Slow day for the teacher
      And her wheels are spinning now
      On account of winter, Mrs. Braintree
      All the roads are closed
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home!

      It's coming down
      Snow lays on the chainfields
      There's a blessing on the ground
      It's coming down
      If your lanes are crammed with children
      There's a blessing on your town
      On a lucky Monday, Mrs. Braintree
      All your lanes are waxen silver
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home! Go home and take a snow day, Mrs. Braintree!

      Mrs. Braintree, you're a chilly northern woman
      Go home from yonder bus stop
      Because there's a blessing on the ground
      Mrs. Braintree, it is written
      When the snows come over Dixie
      All the roads are closed and the stores are loot for vagabonds.

      It's coming down
      Snow lays on the chainfields
      There's a blessing on the ground

      If your road's patrolled by children
      There's no order to be found
      On account of winter, Mrs. Braintree
      All the roads are closed

      Go home!   I think Reb lives next door to Mrs Braintree.  She's a chilly northern woman.
    •     I think he's actually you and delcecchi's hero, judging by the number of times you guys bring him up....
    •   So did you get a guarantee when we started and lost the war on drugs or is this your version of a double standard? I am saying here is a reasonable solution with the positives outweighing the negatives. This is especially true when compared to the current model that has never worked.   Benefits to ending the war on drugs.
      1. Huge savings enforcement and prison $$$ that can be used on treatment. 1 Trillion spent so far with no results.
      2. Police can focus their man hours on violent and other criminals. 82% of drug arrests are for possession. 3. Creating jobs and collecting taxes on drug sales. Imagine that save tax $$ on enforcement and increase revenue, win win. 4. The legit business model puts most of the dealers, gangs and cartels out of business. The very fact that drugs are illegal makes them expensive because of the risk involved, taking the money out of the black market essentially puts these people out business and that is a good thing. Keeping drug illegal keeps the money flowing their way and nothing we can do other than legalization will stop this.

       
      Says the guy who wants to double down on 45 years of failed policy and poor judgment.
      What is even more mind blowing is that free market republicans want to continue failed big gov policies at a huge cost to the taxpayers. We already have legal drugs from big pharm killing people in record numbers to go along with alcohol and tobacco deaths so it is not like we are venturing into unknown territory here.
