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:

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.

    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
