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

    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
    • So are you saying what happened to me did not happen ? We not talking about a 4 inch concrete slab , it is a thin layer of gyp crete that covers the pex , it has the consistency of water when poured and sets up fast, it is self leveling and any movement in the pex shows up and cant be undone . Yes if it was fastened continuously it could not move but that would be ridiculous . As so this discussion !  
    •   Just like all the other teams do. He gets the same shot over and over against every team. Not sure how you let a guy with 18 power play goals float like that. Doesn't hurt Bakstrom is setting it all up. You leave him and just cover Ovi and he will light you up.
    • Good looking driveway always enhances the value of the home and attract friends and neighbors. Nowadays, the commonly used paving materials are concrete slabs and paving stones. Concrete slabs are easy to install, but the material takes a time to dry and cure. Whereas, paving stone installation are ready to use immediately upon completion. Like, last month my neighbor had hired the services of driveway paving in Suffolk County contractors to lay a brick paver patio in their garden area. After the completion of installation, it has appreciated the value of their property.
    • Caught a 19" Bass fishing for Crappie last night!!   I was using 2.5" Gulp Minnows on a small Jig catching Crappie and i couldn't get a good pic as it was dark and couldn't get flash to come on my phone.   4 pound test .... nice little fight .... Had a few nice swirls nip my Bobber also five minutes before that.   Crappies were 10" and thin (hungry)  all returned for some catch n release recreational fishing!!   
    • Just wondering if anyone has done this and if so I'd love to see pictures I'm going to make this my spring project 
    • Dude that's pretty awesome data and pics/video.   Way cooler stuff than when I was a middle school kid.
