Hiya -

Yeah, shooting stars were way cool. Dunno about romatical though. First time fishing flatheads with WWG and Dtro and they start talking about how romantic shooting stars are...and I'm thinking "I hear one banjo, and I'm over the side and in the river..." smile

Thanks for a very enjoyable night on the river. I can see why it gets habit-forming... I'll bring the paintballs next time.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Lusty Lavender

Horny Honey

Erotic Effervescence

The shooting stars spelled sweet success for a Flathead first-timer:

RK always puts a smile on my face with the "Hiya -" and the "cheers" grin

Nice fish dude!

I bet ya a "man hug" or two was dished out after that flat was released laugh

I heard about the Perseid meteor shower yesterday on the radio but forgot to check it out. Must have been cool on the river.

Good work guys!

It was rather neat. I never even looked up to watch it. I was watching the reflection on the water.

Still plenty of meteors left over in the sky tonight on the river.

That's the cue down south. Up here it is when they say, "Phew it is hot. I need to take my shirt off". That's when it is time to do your best Michael Phelps impression.

Hiya - ( smile )

Never really explained it before, but the "Hiya" comes from my grandfather - the one who taught me to fish. Every time I saw him he'd say "hiya, boy...." Stuck with me ever since.

Years ago Larry Dahlberg wrote a piece about the Seven Immutable Laws of Fishing. One of his laws was "The likelihood of someone catching a trophy fish is inversely proportional to how much they deserve it." That law was definitely on display the other night. Being a muskie guy I know full well that catching a fish like that my first time out is more than the universe ought to allow... But - great guides sure help. smile

Being totally new to flatheads just the experience of going was worth it, and I learned a lot in a hurry - probably drove WWG and Dtro nuts asking questions. Just watching those two dissect the snag where I landed my fish to decide how they were going to fish it was worth the price of admission.

Flatheads are really a fascinating critter. I can see why you guys get so passionate about it. If the world knew, you'd have to wait in line to fish for the things...

Thanks again to WWG and Dtro, and Cjac (I have some more photos on the way for you guys, btw) for setting the whole deal up. Really an awesome experience.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Being able to experience someone new discovering what it’s all about, sure is fun. I will admit that it’s not a type of fishing for everyone. Coming from a Musky background sure does help a lot. You understand the ups and downs probably better than anyone.

You now have the tools to go out there and do this on your own. There is some very nice water near where you live wink and not to mention waters your frequent.

Thanks for the pics….somehow I bet they turned out a little better with your camera than mine.

Great time guys.

Glad we got into one. The bite has been pretty inconsistant to say the least.

    • 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.
