bull sharks are one of the only sharks that can survive in fresh water. so who knows? would put the idea of swimming on that lake in a whole new perspective

Ok...I feel like a total moron. Guess I should've read the fine print at the bottom, eh?

Thanks, Grand Dad

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

    • Lets try it like this.
    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
