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

I know one thing...

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.

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.

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
