interesting. i see why its so controversial now with 30-40 MILES of line out(thousand baited hooks). you didnt see any of the unwanted catches on film (dolphins) and you know they are scarfing up the bait.

I thought it was a terrible episode, it seemed to be too much drama and not enough fishing. Thumbs down for last night.

Honestly it was better than I expected. If nothing else, at least I learned one more technique for putting big fish in the boat! I thought the shows format was decent. It was more entertaining than the Lobster show I thought it would be similar to.

Was a little disappointing to see how they catch these magnificent creatures. Guess I had visions of actual fishing to get the Swords onboard. But then again this is a commercial operation and it's their job so I understand.

The bluefin was fun to watch. They fought the thing for 3 hours with a winch, thats impressive to me. Hopefully there is some more fishing the next couple of episodes though.

I am still on the ropes, way to much drama, not enough fishing. The fishing you did was pretty intresting.

I really liked it, although I like anything fishing. The only down side is how they play up every little piece of drama. They do it with all these Discovery Channel shows, Ice Road Truckers is the worst. I wish they would just run it as a documentary and not a reality show.

That's amazing how they run for 5 days to get to their fishing spots and put out 40 miles of line.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
