Should have stayed home...

10 posts in this topic

In retrospect, we had no business being on the river fishing last night. I'd like to think we could make a smart decision when dangerous weather threatens, but when you got flatheaditis bad, logical thinking won't prevail.

The night started out on a good note, ducking for cover!

"I am Cornholio!" grin

Rain was pounding down at a good clip but this flathead still wanted to come out and play with Aanderud.

38" x 26" = 29lbs

**KOTC upgrade points for Aanderud!**

It was decided a move was in order after catching that fish so we motored to a new spot with lightning showing us the way. After getting the baits in the water, it was cell phone weather radar time. We were so going to get killed by the orange & red blobs moving our way. It appeared there was a small gap in the storm line that we "might" slip through so we kept at it.

Was a good idea as this girl bit shortly after that...

42" x 28" = 38lbs

**KOTC upgrade points for Hanson!**

Another look... this fish got tangled up in the line and came into the boat green, at which point she decided to chew all the skin off the back of my left hand. Note the blood! It hurts worse than it looks, trust me. Nothing like taking a wood wrasp and scraping it across the back of your knuckles. From now on, the spot will forever be known as "Knuckles 38". grin

Was a fun time guys and it was nice to get home early for a change and catch up on sleep. Early = 1:30am. grin

Nice fish. I thought about going out but the weather kept me home. I guess I don't have that flathead bug that bad yet.

I was out in henderson last night. I decided to pack it in when the 9 pm siren went off early and stayed on. I did manage one fish before leaving.

Any upgrades Tom?

WWG upgraded by a couple pts with a beauty 31lb fish.

The fish wouldn't let us leave last night. We decided to try something different and after sitting at a usual spot all night we instead scouted around and tried some spots that neither of us has fished this year.

I guess it was a good idea with 7 fish boated:

31,25,25,16,15,10,5

Should be a good time out there for Moores Contest on Sat

Nope, very slow night without one run. Tonight maybe better with a new spot to hit closer to you. I figure after two skunks in a row, you know the saying.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
