First Cast

9 posts in this topic

How many of you guys have caught a fish on your first cast???? I'm sure many people have moved fish on their first cast, but has anyone caught one? Both Bronzeback and I have essentially had the chance this season, but neither of us were really 110% ready it seems. First few casts are always mixed with trying to position the boat and getting everything in the boat organized. Needless to say I am a little more prepared from the start now.

First cast of muskie fishing ever? No. First cast of the year? No. First cast of the trip? Yes. First cast of the day? Yes. First cast after the last cast? Yes smile

If you get to know your waters well enough a first cast ski is doable. One of my buddies who guides in the metro regularly puts them in the boat on the first cast, and has done it in multiple spots in one night.

I always say if you go some where on a trip and you catch a muskie on the first cast your gonna have a good trip!! I've done that on Vermilion a couple of times in the same spot with the same lure.

I had back to back outings where I put fish in the boat on first casts....one was at 8:30 at night, the next morning at 7am, the next time I went out I had something blow up on my first cast and I'm thinking "No f'n way" Turned out to be an over zealous bass hitting a creeper.

I've had blowups on topwaters, but not a fish in the boat....yet.

Forget first cast...the day can go downhill from there. I like it more when calling last cast and then sticking a fish grin

I've ended 2 seasons like that (although one was a last trolling run) but after letting the fish go put everything away and hug it up for the year. Ending on a high note is better than starting on one in my books.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!
    •   In the World According to Del, taxpayers should feel very guilty for allowing this to happen.              
    • We're not setting any records but managing to decoy a few. Struggling with a new gun that I'm too stubborn to set aside. Just happy to be out at all with what I've been through. 
    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
    • Last week I got my two Helix Mega in. I a lot of people ask me how I install them and how to avoid interference. Follow these tips and interference will be a thing of the past.  
    • You are a confused individual , you might not have jumped on the Apple dumpling gang bandwagon at first but it didnt take you long to sit side by side.And where do you get off saying I'm whining as you spell it,  go back and read the thread again. Snowflake huh? Dave you need to get otta silly town...oh and BTW after limit hit up our group they all left!!
    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
