You can't beat fresh Fish and IceCold HighLife! Wendell would be proud. THe Hamms on the other hand I guess must be the batter beer

dream-  you got a depth you found the crappies in?  Heading just south of you this weekend and I'm guessing 12-15 feet or so in the lake we're on but further direction would help.  Thanks.

LL-look for bays that have reached 50 degrees. We were fishing a very popular bemidji lake and they just started moving in. If your heading north I'm guessing your timing is perfect.

That's how you get the family to not overstay their welcome! Invite em over for T-bones and a crappie fry, but once supper's over, all ya got is the Champagne of Beers and Hamm's... "Well, would ya look at the time!" Things kinda take care of themselves at that point.:lol:

Great pile of papermouths!!!! Nothing like a good crappie early Spring bite. Best time to sneak into those warming shallows and get some. Looks like a great meal and drink to me. Smurfy just don't know good Minnysoda beer. :grin:

If Hamm's is like it was back in the day, no thanks.   I couldn't drink that even as a college student.  They did the best brewery tours with swag and food and all the beer we could drink.  But it was still bad beer and I barely could drink one, from the tap at the brewery.   No wonder they went under.  

Who brews them now?  

However a pbr or grain belt or even a "city beer" (old style) or a green hornet once in a while is ok.  But not Hamms, Coors, or Olympia (do they still brew Olympia?)

The beer company next to it.  Miller.  Hamms won the 2010 Gold medal for specialty style lager, ya Delbert. ;)

Looking forward to slabs like that.  Been fishing the north shore for loopers.  I would take that Bemidji style surf and turf over any other anytime.  Hamms is one of the beers that gave me a headache.  Maybe I drank too much of it LOL.  Glad to see it's still around though.  Drank a lot of Fitgers back then.  good luck.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
