Just goofing around

Didn't take the boat out this weekend, too busy getting ready for the big event Womens GTG. Did take a little time out for some dock fishing, but the bugs were biting way more than the fish. So I played around with my camera a bit. Two pics from last night Novice shots. Now pics from this morning: the sunny was so huge he almost pulled me in J/K

I did see a northern in the water right by the dock, I drug my lure by him 10 times and nothing! He made a slight turn and I could see half his jaw ripped to shreds, no wonder he wouldn't bite. I tried to net him so I could take him home and clean him and put him out of his misery, but no go.

Nice shots Barb! You're lake is just beautiful! I wonder if a musky tried to have his way with that northern? Weird.

I would say either a musky or bigger pike did it. Nice pics Barb, would be nice to wake up to that in the morning.

No Muskies in this lake, only 84 acres. I think he may have been hit by a prop.

    • 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..
