Anybody willing to help?

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys I have been using this site for years. I am an avid walleye fisherman but in the last two years my son and I have tried several times to do a little catfishing. The problem is I really haven't had much luck and being that he is 11yrs old he is getting tired of getting skunked. I thought walleye's were hard to catch. Anyways I was wondering if anyone out there would let me tag along with them one night to pick up a few pointers. I have tried several spots and still can't seem to figure it out. I work early during the week so probably would have to be on a weekend. This may be kind of a weird post but about two years ago I met a guy that was posting on this site looking to fish in someone's boat for walleye, I invited him along and today he is one of my best friends. Thanks!!

I would be more than happy to tkae you and your son out a time or two. Only problem is, my back is out of commission for a bit. When I get back into the river fishing, you are more than welcome to come along for some cat action.

In July , on the 19th, we are have a get together in Carver for the members. There is no cost, food ias bring your own and this could be a good time to learn a few things and also meet many of the better cat people on the forum.

You are more than welcome to come and we sure would like to meet you. There is a post in the catfish forum in regards to this event and if you have any questions, fire away.

I would also be more than willing to take you and your son out for some big cats. I have a bit of experience with taking people out cat fishing. I put on a cat fishing event for a day in the summer for a group out of the cities called Capable partners. It consist of a large group of people who have physical disabilities and some who are able bodied. myself and a small group of friends take the Capable Partners members down to the Minnesota river and fish hard for the day off shore and in boats. Also a few years ago i met a fisherman who was new to the cat game who is now one of my closest friends at seven mile creek by Mankato and he was asking for some catin advise. Now in the past years we have landed many fish in the 30lb to 45lb range. So yes i would make time for when ever you could make it to Mankato to fish.

I would really like to thank both of you for your willingness to help out. Harvey I am going to look into the details of that outing and hopefully the boy and I can make it up for that one. Hope you back gets better soon. Thatcatguy I will take you up on the offer. I will shoot you an email from work on monday and see what your upcoming plans are. Both my son and I are very excited to fish with someone that knows what he is doing. Well he and I are off to the Croix for some walleye action. I will talk to you soon and thanks again to both of you!!!!

    • I have an old DC drake call that is deadly
    • The only form of alternative medicine that I've found to be effective is the use of leeches.  Treatment is fairly simple but almost always effective.  All I do is take the leech, put it on the end of a hook and cast it into a lake.  I start feeling better almost instantly. I've found you need to repeat treatment on a regular basis for best results. 
    • My Sister in Law died of metastatic lung cancer a few years ago.   She didn't know anything was wrong until it had already spread to her bones.    Lung cancer is one that is pretty tough to cure, since it often isn't caught early enough, among other reasons.  In the case of your mother, I would guess that the reason they didn't complete the procedure was that the cancer had already spread (metastasized) to other places, like the other side of the lung or other organs, or bones.   So it was a terminal situation at that point.   Could a more extensive evaluation, PET scans, MRI, etc spared her the surgery?   That is sure a possibility.  Did the surgery have an adverse effect on the course of her disease?  That seems less likely, although the surgery itself surely was a negative thing.    But in all cases, regardless of what the Chiros claim, manipulation of the spine to align subluxations would have done nothing to affect it at all.  Neither would Reiki,  copper bracelets, Laetrile, or an orgone box.  
    • Ha !..not so... Only bait I might fall for is a cold beer, and a chair at the computer.... #SICKHILLARY
    • Go it, I like the surgeons loop.  going to have to give that a try!   Thanks,
    • I guess you weren't watching during the nominating process.  Sure people are getting on board now.  That is irrelevant to my thesis. 
    • Thanks for the suggestion Hawg. The old window was single pane privacy glass, so all it did was let light in. I kind of figured that this will prob frost up and we have a fan that can put on it. The main reason I put it on there is because I didn't like the idea of having a piece of glass in the V on the traffic side.
    • *chuckle* That didn't take long. "What did you use for bait?" A black dude, Hillary, and a cat.
    • Keep voting democrat, Minnesota.....
