Drew! Nice fish, but buddy -- every time I turn around, you're passing me up by a couple points! Seriously though, you're on fire this year. Good job on the hogs! Getting 3 fish over 30 rocks, and just think, it's still not even July! You might have your own "safari" page before long!

Too bad for me that I wussed out last night and stayed home! I'm kicking myself now. I was actually in bed before you texted about your fish, earliest I've seen bed in a couple months I think!

I'm re-charged now though, look out leaders, here I come!

Thanks boys! She fought like a true champ too...then it took about 20 minutes to revive her and get her to swim off on her own. she had me worried for a little bit there

every time I turn around, you're passing me up by a couple points!

You didnt think I was going to let you stay in front of me for too long did you? wink

Dark, why do you want it to go down? I suppose it's better for shore fishin?

I'm stoked with it where it's at, can drive anywhere prolly up to Mankato if I wanted to with my boat.

I love this high water but yes, for shore fisherman it might be a pain.

Dark, anytime you want to go out in the boat, shoot me an e-mail and we will go out.

I've been getting a few walleyes with the high water but for mudeyes, I really need to make the best of the time I have available....seems like theres always something....like this weekend I got roped into being Dennis Steeles best man when he says the big "I DO" down on some sand bar south of Alma (just kidding) I wish him the best and I can see he is happy! I really don't enjoy sitting in a boat for half the night anymore anyway so spending a few hours off the bank at a proven spot works just fine for me.....just a few more feet and a little more time is all I need grin

Get rid of this high water. I would like to see it drop and let the fish set up some summer patterns. Creeks are fun but they get old, and everyone fishes the heck out of them.

sounds like someone is getting cranky for not being able to fully utilize his jet boat.

    •   I'll take them over walleye any day!!!
    • Ya know, it had been a while since I checked in here.  Seems the climate certainly has changed from the days when guys like Dietz Dittrich & Rob Kimm would foster some awesome discussion topics about fishing & the outdoors.  I'm sorry to see what this place has become.     To the guys who offered up honest answers to my inquiry, I thank you.  As for the rest of you, no wonder this once-great forum no longer is.  About the only reply missing to my initial question was, "Hey, you shoulda been here yesterday!"  Have fun liking each other's witty, zany posts, and enjoy the circle-jerk this forum has become.  From the sounds of things, you puds deserve each other.  Enjoy!
    • we have three other ones already.... but of a hoarder I guess lol
    • You guys wanna hear something funny?,  after all this jabber about the Bushmaster I dropped by the gun counter to see what the hell they were. You are right and so was I.....a very inexpensive plastic appliance sorta firearm.  I believe you are all correct it is an adequate weapon and from what I gather very dependable. If I want a simple, inexpensive weapon to repel boarders  I guess it would do so it may well be what the kid is looking for. Funny part is, a new Beretta 92FS left the store with me!  As you already know THAT is a serious and well crafted piece of machinery!! Ha Ha! And no,   I didn't need it. But it is big enough and heavy enough you could beat to death a charging buffalo!
    •   +1.  Any caliber outside of a BB gun will penetrate drywall.    
    • Do a google search of walnut hollow country turkey mount They make nice real wood ones   I ordered mine from them on amazon as it was cheaper on there for some reason They make ones without the picture on it if that's your style
    • Bushmasters are not bad I have shot a couple and they work just fine. Just think of it as a chevy Malibu. Yes there are Camaros and Corvettes out there but they come with a price. If you are just needing to get to work and back the Malibu is just fine if you want to go to the track the corvette is better. I am getting the drift he wants the gun in case you know what hits the fan well in that case the bush master will do. If he wants to do some serious shooting or competition 3 gun or whatever I would suggest otherwise.         As far as the wall penetrating debate Its all hog wash unless you are hitting studs the bullet is going through drywall with the exception of birdshot will stop after a wall or two     
    •   The importation of AKs was banned during the Obama administration, but there were a lot of them imported prior to the ban, so they are still available.  Probably not at big box stores, though.  You would have to shop around, and some of them bring high prices due to the mods made to them.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/banning-russian-made-ak-47s-sets-off-a-us-buying-frenzy/2014/08/31/ad6cbbde-2e0a-11e4-994d-202962a9150c_story.html
