No prob Blaze, my wife and her friend were trying to convince me about this story a couple months ago. I said no way, no how. And they wanted to know why I didn't believe it. I just said there is no way something like this would be kept from getting on Fishing Minnesota. From the 1500lb Rainey River sturgeon to 55 lb Lake of the Woods northern pike, there ain't a fish myth out there that hasn't been busted at least a dozen times on FM.

Funny you say that because I've seen the same story posted here several times grin

The shark story dtro??? If I got a new Rapala for everytime I've seen that pic of that monster Europeon pike and the pic of the Idaho sturgeon, my tacklebox would be GIANORMOUS!!! And don't forget that pic of the monster pike eating the little pike, that one also made the rounds.

If the shark story has been posted before, I must've thought it was to ridiculas to check out at the time. smile

yep the shark story has made it's rounds as well.

I think a permanent post with all the fish stories should be made so they can all be laid to rest there smile

I think they should censor out the word huge pike and that would deter anyone from posting that dang picture again.

Unfortunately, I haven't spent as much time on fm this last year as I have in the past. Guess I must've missed it before.

That's actually a great idea - a "Hall of Fame" forum. We could add the huge pike story as well as stuff like "Vexilar -vs- Marcum", "Ford -vs- Chevy", and "What's a good graph for under $200?" threads. laugh

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
