Just got back from vacation and I emptied my bait tank before I left. My daughter and I would like to go fishing tonight but we don't have any bait.

email me at wastewaterguru@hotmail.com if you are interested. Looking to stay fairly local..shakopee or jordan area.

Waste:

I'm interested. My army of 12 to 15 soldiers is waiting for your command. They are still alive and well in my bathtub.

I emailed you. Thanks much.

I agree! That way you don't have the wife on your [PoorWordUsage] for leaving the toilet seat up either. She probably wont set foot in the bathroom with a tub full of bullies!!!

Going tonight as well with no daughter.....just me.

I am a little low on bait, so you gotta bring your own or enough for me too :^)

email to wastewaterguru at hotmail if interested.

I probably have enough bait so don't let that deter anyone from coming out. Just would prefer you bring the bait to keep me from running my supplies down. Suckers, bullies, etc.

How much bait do you have now? I could perhaps loan you some if you'd like. Or perhaps lead you to a spot you could catch a few bullies before you go.

I think I have enough for tonight.

updacreek is jumping in with me out of Jordan at 6:30.

Probably have room for one more but now it would definately require the bringing of your own bait or stopping and getting some suckers or something......or you could just come along to learn a little.

I am counting on some of his luck rubbing off on me...........

I am busy tonight and have a long day a head of me tomorrow at work. I wish I could! Perhaps, another time if the offer is still on the table???

Were you out last night? I heard a river pro upstream last night and it sounded like they stopped by some dead heads around the first bend from the Jordan access...

Thanks

Nick

I was in the Chaska/Shakopee area last night. I think that was Capt. Fireman that was out in Jordan last night.

Good to hear someone was catching fish. I had a couple good tugs and was stripped a few times. Assuming they were gar. But it was a bad night for me. A bullie stung me. My reel got all messed up and I had to strip it down in the dark and mess with the drags clutch disks. and came up empty handed frown

Beats sitting at home and not catching anything though!

WWG I usually have a stock of Bullheads and am in the west metro area so if you ever need someone to fish with I'll bring the bait.

Ya the old lady and I were out at the launch yesterday and there was the silver bullet and river pro trailer. I must have just missed you I saw your stream just disappearing around the first bend. Hopefully we can give it another shot out on the river one of these day, when the weather is better.

That's pretty normal it usually only hurts for a short period of time and when I get pricked it usually draws a tiny bit of blood. One time though I had one that was about to die so I was going to throw it into the woods and I wound up to chuck it and all that force pushed the bone into my finger and it hurt for a couple hours. Felt like it went all the way to the bone.

Gotta love those Bullheads...they are tough!

Sometimes I just reach in the bucket and grab them. Other times I use a minnow net and wait for them to stop moving and lip them like a bass

Bullheads are not too bad. Small channels are the worst. I have seen then do damage that could have used stitches. I had one get me good monday during the Sheriffs derby that hung by its pectoral from my hand.

We got 5 turtles, 3 gar, 1 nice channel, and one flathead.

Fog was nasty at 11:30 when we decided to head back to Jordan. That was a long ride.

45 minutes to get back.

On a sidenote, the carver rapids are now impassable for anything with a prop.

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
