Not really, but I thought it was kinda cool. Free advertising never hurts. wink In the actual paper, they also included 5 of my best photos, about 5 X 7.

Just do a search for marshallindependent or type the word with a .com at the end and on the left side, under News, click on Features.

Way cool! I won't get to see that paper until Monday, after my father-in-law gets done with it. The story online was nicely done.

Congratulations!

Thanks, all. My father inlaw from 30 miles away, called at 7:45 AM to compliment me and a friend of my mother, in the same town, called her at 7:00 AM, all excited. A lady called me and asked what kind of bird the house finch was and I had 2 compliments in church and a lead on a Kingfisher. It was an interesting day.

While typing, I just got a call from someone who has Indigo Buntings nesting by his house, and also has Orchard Orioles. He invited me to set up my blind anytime. That article is really starting to pay off.

If you can make it we have an Indigo Bunting that regularly visits our feeders. I am located at the Lebanon Hills Visitor Center in Eagan, MN.

Thanks for the invite, Borg. However, that's a long ways to go for a pretty birdie. whistle Don't get me wrong, I'd really love to get a nice photo of one, but $60 for gas? cry

I did get a call from someone 5 miles from here who claims he gets at least a couple in his yard, a few times a week. The problem is the timing. wink

Just finished reading the actual paper. The photos are great. I loved the oriole and goldfinch on the back.

    • Not sure if it will work for your lake but I can tell you what worked in a similar lake but it was much larger. I spent a lot of time and pretty much fished the lake at all times of the day and night for years. Fishing thru the night works with a full moon trolling in the 12' to 18' range using Rapalas to get with in 3' of the bottom. You can use live bait but won't cover as much ground when looking for the most active. One of the best time I found for live bait was from 9:00AM to around 1:00PM. My guess was they would feed heavy right before the sun came up and stop once it was too light. A couple of hours go by and they are ready to eat and it is the bigger fish that put on the feed bag. During this time I never caught a eater size fish. I mostly worked the 16' to 20' breaks next to weeds and rock. This was a mid June thru August pattern using leeches. Hope this helps get you on the right track.
    • Triple check your battery, put the transducer up to your ear and see if you can hear it clicking. 
    • I'm suggesting they install foot-washing basins with tinted water in them in CAWchester.. Under the water's a bear trap. 
    • By their fruits you shall know them....   We will figure it out in a year or two.  Legacy and all that. 
    • So installing foot washing places in public buildings should be off limits?   Not clear if MSP airport has installed them or not.
    • This is true however the Christian conservatives get just as bent out of shape over Muslims doing it as atheists do when Christians do it.
    • Good point. Next time out, clip on your biggest spoon to see if that reads? If so keep going smaller while making adjustments until you can't read it anymore. Also try different depths.  If your reading bottom you should be about to see something still if adjusted right. Good luck.
    • So the sled and ice fishing gear as well it sounds like. Good for you.
    • Good price.  You just need a $1000 generator to run it - or a good current bush...
    • That particular jig or all jigs? $175 is ridiculous
