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"

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
