Awesome video! What a great night! You each got into a good size fish, and the muskie man got one on his first outing. Perfect!

What's the deal with the bobber? is it added to float the bully a little or what? Or is it a secret?

Looks like a great time! Does anybody actually weigh the fish anymore? The girth measurement would be off +/= a couple inches real easy....course I can't talk much about scales lately anyway blush

Well I can't say for certain that those were all honest to goodness 30 pounders, but they were all 40"+ Rob's fish for sure was mid 30's.

Every once and a while I will toss one on a scale to cross reference the measurements. Sometimes over, sometimes under.

I guess I could've called it a trio of 40"ers. laugh

Darren's got a good eye for guestimating weights and lengths on fish in person. Pretty incredible really.

He's also got a good feel for the size of the fish based on the bend in the rod and the fight.

What I'm still waiting for is guessing the size of the fish based on the chomp and run. That might take some ninja skills to get within a 5lb margin of error.grin

Yep, CJac was on deck, and finally got up to bat but struck out.

We came to the agreement that it was either a turtle or a 60 laugh

    • Whatever happened to reinhardt1?  He caught a lot of heat down here because he was so enthralled with Michelle Bachmann, but when he left Sillytown, he moved to the cooking thread, and he was very knowledgeable about cutting and preparing meat, since he was a butcher by trade.  I never spent much time in the cooking forum, but I would read reinhardt's posts occasionally.   I didn't mind Lmitout, but I've been frequenting these forums since the wild & wooly days - back when Jackpine Rob & the crew was on here.  Lmitout was pretty tame in comparison to some of those guys...   One who comes to mind went by the handle "Mariner Magnum"...                
    • Fun time at the river
    • There you go again, calling names.   "senile elders"  "brainwashed baby boomers"   "need the blue pill"     Are you serious dude?   And you wonder why folks don't take your alternative chiropractic talk seriously? 
    • some are still here, just not as busy posting.
    • The administration I referred to was not the Obama administration.  Don't edit me when quoting.  It was the HSO administration. 
    • Like I said I pop in from time to time , not like before. I do remember you rundrave stepping in and commenting on all the babble when the cooking thread crashed, you think that was the only babbling going on here? Hey, your a mod and we're just trying to cool things down, I get that.  In my opinion it came down to the cooking thread was dominating the rest and some didn't like it.  But if you want an answer on politics ,you don't have to look hard..
    • Rage, ok, thats funny. More so making light of rebels transparency regarding not being able to handle differing opinions and allowing his homeboys to throw out as much smack talk as me, only i come a little harder and sensative people struggle with their emotions.  Hence deleting a post with no rules breaking.     This whole post was a story, made up to start something. Nice troll work OP, i knew it a long time ago but played along cause it was fun but now its just a bunch of senile elders or brainwasher baby boomers that cant exchange without feeling like they were talked down to. So soft and zero passion for anything worthwhile, thats why you all need the blue pill.    
    •   Well shistter,  I had to WiKi the curry wurst so it looks like a real deal!   Currywurst (German pronunciation: [ˈkœʁiˌvʊʁst][1]) is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage (German: Bratwurst) typically cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste, itself topped with curry powder, or a ready-made ketchup seasoned with curry and other spices. The dish is often served with French fries.
