what an awesome weekend!

15 posts in this topic

Me and a few friends had a small canoe tournament on 3 different metro lakes this UGLY Saturday. Let me tell you.. I've never seen so many big fish from one little lake! We got multiple 3's, 4's, and even 5's! The monsters were a 5 and a 6.2. I didn't catch the 6.3 but my buddy below did. He got the guy fishing thick weed pockets in about 4 feet of water, using a wacky rigged Berkley heavy worm. He got this guy the last 5 min of our tournament! All on weird weather Saturday! We pulled 30+ fish that day! Hot bites were on any worm riged texas or wacky through thick weed pockets or edge! Enjoy the pics.

We hit up 3 lakes to just change it up a bit. One lake was no deeper then 7-9 feet, another was unkown and very clear, another was very pressured, green, and full of muskies! It was a good day to be out if you can find cover from that horrible wind!

Nice big fat healthy looking fish.

The simplicity of fishing out of a canoe is so under-rated.

Great pics!

Nice fish! I never have much luck fishing really thick weeds and slop (like that last pic) under high sun.

Cecil - Only one of the 3 lakes had PA...but that was the lake that produced the least out of the 3. Caught some dinkers and that 4 pounder from the first picture.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
