Saturday scratched...How about Friday Night

11 posts in this topic

Well with alot of help from Holms, Crazyice, and Rugbyguy my flathead setup is complete. I had planned on making my first flathead run saturday night but none of the locals can make it. Anyone plan on going saturday night that would have a spot open or would want to jump in with me? I was planning on trying the Miss. but wouldnt mind running to the MN. I live in rochester. I have a 16 footer with 2 boat and one bench seat. 20hp merc. I imagine its alot easier to hoist a 20+ lb fish with 2 people lol. I work until 5 in rochester and had planned on getting some bullheads and headin out after that but if somone would want to get out earlier i can get some tonight.

I've never gone flathead fishing but should have my setup in the next few weeks. I've got the itch BAD and it's time for me to put some hours in on the river! I'll keep you in mind in the coming weeks as none of my friends are into river running or cat's for that matter and I'm always looking for a fishing buddy. Good luck out there this weekend, hopefully the weather cooperates.

That might turn out something like Bubba Junior's alien abduction experience...."and not in the good way..." There's a 6 minute 40 second video on youtube if you search for "jeff dunham and bubba jr" on there and get to about 2 minutes 25 seconds or so...

LOL, nice way to end my work day. And I don't mean being abducted and probed either, I mean the video.

    • It's not optimum for home defense or hunting either. Basically just lower cost plinking.    As far as Bushmaster, they make ok guns for sure. But personally the fact that they are owned by a venture capital firm who tried but failed to sell them off some time ago, they are more than likely controlled by bean counters rather than gun enthusiasts and that generally doesn't bode well for quality. 
    •   social media king...... and dont you forget it ! ! !  lol
    •   I see you have a whooooping 65 posts. start sharing and maybe the site will be smokin again... LOL  have fun and stop beating the horse that died.  pretend ya just found the site  
    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL
