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.

    • Reb's old girlfriend might have had a diaphragm, but you would find that one in the lower unit - not in the carburetor...
    • Most of the homeowner's expense comes from heating and cooling inside a home. Double pane windows have gasses like argon or krypton filled to displace the air between the panels. But the problem is when this leaks from the window panes and settles down at the bottom. 1) The main problem that would arise is condensation. The moisture level goes high thus causing mold, mildew and rotting wood sills. 2) If the gas leaks, the window will not provide better insulation. 3) The windows start to make squeaky sounds thus it is hard to close and open. 4) It also affects the stripping to loose. I live here in Canada. In our house, we have double pane windows in almost all the rooms. Now I could see that some of the windows to be in a foggy condition. Will it be due to the gas in the window panes? Should I need to replace the windows? I have heard that energy efficient casement windows are good compared to double pane windows. I would like to know the benefits of casement windows. Will it cut down my utility bills? Please do share your thoughts and valuable suggestions. Thanks for the time.
    • We spent last weekend in the camper, holed up hiding from the rain. Not the worst thing ever, but a hike would've been nice. Hopefully we'll have better weather over Memorial Day. It looks good now so I'm excited. 
    • I am in a confusion on which one to choose. I have anyways decided to separate the bath area from the toilet. Which one would be better? I don't have enough area in the bathroom. One of my friends said that when it comes to energy efficiency and water conservation, a quick shower virtually always beats a bath. Is it true??   Although it is good for relaxing and ideal for bathing small children, I think it will be difficult for older people and people with injuries to get in and out. When it comes to the case of water heaters also I think it will be difficult to fill the tub. I think all these issues can be sorted out using a shower. Showers always need only less water. But if there is any leak, it will be difficult to fix.   I personally prefer bathtubs. Although it has many disadvantages compared to showers, the relaxation and freshness we get after bathing in a tube are very different. What is your opinion? Based on your opinion, I want to fix my decision and approach a plumbing company for installing it. Feel free to share your thoughts.
    • Mulches are really good. I have tried it in my garden once I had an issue with the weeds. It also retains the moisture in the soil.
    • Although its quite an old post, its still alive only because it is a very important talk. Most of them are behind reducing the weight. Reducing weight is not an easy task. Proper diet and exercise is very essential. Avoid red meat and oily food.  
    • I have seen just once in my life.
    • Great information. I was also looking for some tips to burn fat. I don't take too much food but I am a little bit fat. What could be the reason? Help me.
    • Way to go Andy!
    • Yep.  So far, I love it.  The only glitch so far is that the high speed doesn't work when I am traveling. The screen is clear, The side-imaging is also clear. It is VERY friendly to use!   I am very happy with it for a few hundred dollars less than Lowrance & Hummingbird.   Ref
