The Not Quite Cats

8 posts in this topic

Unfortunately, I live pretty far north in MN, so my cat fishing spots are all 45 minutes or more away, and then its 3-6 pound channels only... To get me by, I chase bullheads around home--these pics are from a couple weeks ago...jig and a crawler, light rods, lots of fun! If I were to head "south" (aka, metro area) to challenge some flats, are these the right size bullheads for bait?

Hey Pikestabber, I'm from Itasca area (nashwauk). Where'd you get the bullies at?

I suggest cutting those bullies up and using them for cut bait if you haven't already thrown them out/cooked em'. Those are some large bullies!

Well, it would be a bit of a drive for you from Nashwauk... I live in Grand Rapids, but I grew up in--and mostly still fish around--Deer River. These were caught near the bridge at Cutfoot Sioux. I usually smoke the bigger ones and fry the littler ones. As far as cutbait, always cut off the "mud," or red back on these fish that connects to the skin, then use these fleshy skin pieces as cat bait.

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
