Brr!! Long Johns on 30 June

4 posts in this topic

Cool, breezy, cloudy and dark on the St Croix last night. The water temp was 82 degrees last Friday and a cool 69 last night. I was glad I put on my long johns before I left home.

I had hooks in the water at 1904 and had a fish in the boat at 1911. I had this jumbo bullhead that wanted out of the bait bucket in the worst way so I obliged him as my first offering of the night. That 3 oz No-Roll must have almost hit that flathead on the head when it settled to the bottom. He was on that bully pretty quick. I boated a small 30" flathead and got my bullhead back with him. The bullie was still full of fight so out he went again but nothing else for the rest of the night.

I quit fighting the wind as the 9th inning started and decided to call it a night. Twins beat KC 2-1 but it was kind of a boring game. Better weather on the way so I'll be out again tonight.

Wasn’t quite as chilly down in the river valley over here. Sweatshirt weather for sure though. We had water temp of 73 and couldn’t keep the 30” fish off our line.

At one point John had caught another 30”er and found a way to tangle it in my line. As I was holding my line in my hand trying to untangle it I can feel the line pumping and I was like, “uh John, can you hurry it up there, I’d like to catch this fish” laugh

Probably had the most action all year last night. It was fun.

30 inch action -- beats sitting at home! I caught up a little on sleep and I feel quite good today. Might have to get out tonight.

    •     The assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
