I was a little disappointed

16 posts in this topic

Arriving at the landing last night I had a bucketful of beautiful chubs. One of which was HUGE. As WWG was dumping them in his livewell I said, "That big one has my name on it."

I waited right up until the witching hour and scooped the big fella out of the livewell. I would say it was about 10-11" and feisty!

Toss it out into the magic spot and it was kicking nicely. Next thing you know zip zip zip. Sweet!

......

......

......then nothing.

I pick up the rod and patiently wait for a signal of a fish on the other end. Nothing.

Give a little more pressure and I can tell I have a bait, but it's not moving. I say, "hmmm, pretty sure my bait got slammed and it's dead"

This is what was on the other end frown

Think he just got ripped up by a flat? or was it something more sinister, like a snapper, that got him?

I'm going with something more sinister, but who knows.

It was such a clean cut too. It looked like a scalpel was used.

The picture doesn't do it justice cause it was still alive and breathing even though half it's head was sliced off.

That is weird/cool looking; weird because they always seem to disembowl and eat the vittles before they start on anything else.

    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
