Lighning Strikes Twice

2 posts in this topic

Joe *dirt* Chadwick and I talked last night about a big trout someone lost while fishing with me. I suggested that he take his dad or grandpa after is. He took his cousin Pat Schendel with him instead.

Pat caught the 22 and 3/4s in small stream brown on the second cast. That trout was 5 inches longer than any other trout Pat had caught in his life. Pat and Joe stopped in to my house to thank me for the tip on the big trout. I snapped a photo of it before it went to the taxidermist's

One hour after the first visit my phone rang. The 2 were so pumped up about trout fishing....they went out again. Pat scored a "TWIN" to the first trout. A second trip was in order to the taxidermist. One was caught in Richland County and other was caught in Crawford County. Both were caught on night crawlers.

Both will be placed on the same piece of driftwood.

Congrats Pat Schendel!

I cought a 21.5 inch brookie this year and instead of letting it go i was going to bring it to the taxidermy place but had no money...so that was the best tasting trout i have ever had. That is an awesome story and would have gotten them mounted for sure. To me replicas are worthless and fake any one can go out and get a replica of any kind of fish. The only way to go is a real mount because its the exact fish you got. as uncle ted once said "The Beast Is Dead Long Live The Beast"

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
