Anyone want some big chubs?

27 posts in this topic

My dad's been trapping some big chubs (8-10", mostly rainbows but some creek chubs) up in the Grand Rapids area, and all he does is throw 'em back since he just fishes for walleyes. I figured some of you guys might want some. No charge if you just wanna come pick 'em up. I don't go up too often, about every 3 weeks, but I'd be more than happy to bring 4-5 dozen back with me.

JimBuck, I'm not sure where he's from, I'm pretty sure it's the Burnsville area. His dad is a pastor, if that helps.

I'll be north of Nashwauk about 15 miles. Hopefully I'll see ya then. Also, do you want any grass shiners? We get quite a few of them and some of 'em are really good sized. I'd say about 6" long but they're alot fatter than emeralds or goldens, and they stay alive in a bucket much better

You know where Bray Lake is? 6 miles east of hwy 65, on the north side of hwy 56. We live on the north side of the lake. Where you going?

Looks like I'm gonna have my work cut out for me this week! BTW, do you guys prefer rainbows or creek chubs? I mostly get rainbows, they probably make up about 90% of my hauls

Do you want bigger chubs, normal ones?

I love radisson, there's actually alot of nice smallies in there. Don't be afraid to head over to napolean and owen, too. Great crappie/bass/pike lakes. Owen's actually one of my favorites for bass, both numbers and size. Bring plenty of Senkos and Flukes in any color as long as it's watermelon or white w/ silver flecks

I do enjoy the occassional Surley Bender or CynicAle. Well, maybe more than occassional.... smile

I'll tell ya what, just keep me in mind if you ever feel like hitting the lake and you have an empty seat in your boat, and we'll call it even.

    •   It's hard not to lump them (Koch Bros) in with the Tea party as they spent millions supporting it and effectively, with some others, namely big tobacco, created the Tea party.      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brendan-demelle/study-confirms-tea-party-_b_2663125.html  
    • I got an electronic sliding deadbolt on the garage and the house. It is the BEST THING EVER!!!! just push in 4 number and it opens up without any other input. To lock, you just push one button. I think maybe Quickset brand or something like that. I liekd it more than Schlage model.   My Mom had one that you put in the 4 digit combo and then have to turn a knob. Still nice, but the auto one is awesome.   It beeps for unsuccessful, and it willgive a red (rather than green) light and also a beepbeepbeep when the batteries get low. Pretty easy and forgiving to let you know when to change them. I have not had them go totally out on me yet in about 5 years or more, but I change them usually after about a week of beepbeepbeeping  I would guess I change them 1-2 times a year, more in the garage as it gets locked and unlocked more.   Seriously, best thing ever. I never carry keys anymore, never. I leave keys right in the vehicles in the garage, dont' bother bringing them into the house anymore. At the cabin I leave keys right in vehicles as well.
    • You do know Uncle Bengahzi........that burns are covered by the ACA.
    •   The best system is one where consumers are left with a choice, so yes. I would agree.
    •   In other words, officer duffy, and the rest of the lib - tard nation's got nothing...     Lolololo.....

    • Nothing is going to be perfect but right now we pay way more for healthcare than anyone else, whatever we are doing is only lining the pockets of the industry and worse yet we are forced to pay. Let me know where it says in the constitution we have the right to be forced into paying high healthcare premiums, it doesn't exactly sound like America the free.

      Maybe someday I will research healthcare and write a report for you but I don't have the time right now. As I see it cutting out the middle man is good for 320+ millions Americans vs a tiny fraction of health insurance industry. We need to stop catering to tiny fractions of people for monetary gain and look at the big picture.
    • Will do.  We were just up there for ice fishing on Bass. First the drizzle and rain came, then the wind blew us all the way home.  We did get in some good sight fishing for bass though. 3-5 fow on the edge of reeds.  Real cool to see the bass come in and take your lure that shallow.  We got a couple of 18" +.

    • Del is that you shooting down any kind of change again? It can happen as soon as we decide we need to start doing what is in the best interests of the voters instead of what is right for some small segment of the economy. The politicians fear losing their jobs more than they fear these special interest groups. Even the far right has to see that letting the insurance industry have it's way and even worse force people to sign up for this stuff is a total crock. Ya ya we could go to a free market and let the market decide but I don't even know if we have free markets when it comes to big $$$ industries. They get what they want and we are forced to pay, not exactly a free market. Now if we could find a way to get there that would be great but there is way to much influence to let that happen.
    •   I think the countries in Europe that have systems that work still have insurance companies.   Why don't you research how it works in Germany and Switzerland, and get back to us with a report.    The problem with single payer is that, as we see with medicaid, that the government is tempted to reimburse at too low a level to sustain the providers.   Even the Brits seem to have a private system with insurance that runs in parallel with the government providers.    As for government providers in this country, the VA is an example.
