July plans

1 post in this topic

Guys,

got a buddy coming up from FL in late July, originally from here. He's a world class fisherman, no kidding. Not sure yet if it's 1wk or 2 of fishing this year.

A teacher by profession and an asst. with FL F&W, all he does is fish. He comes up each year for a few weeks of fishing and visiting with family. This year we hope to get to a few new spots with the canoe and on foot. Hoping one of the fisheries biologists is coming along for the trip.

If so, we plan to try and hit a few "secret", walk in spots up north for bass, pike and trout. You guys are welcome for any or all the days on the water. We go out every chance regardless of weather unless it's a bad storm. Hope to get some night fishing in too. My boat's not ready and won't be, but the canoe is. Dan's one of us, though he's far beyond my caliber! We'll travel to fish with any of you and I'm sure you'll be glad to meet Dan.

He's good for trading trips too! Freshwater and shallow water Salt! He knows FL's the big chains like the back of his hand. Just got back from a trip to TN with the biologist. 3 guys, one week, well over 300 fish. Hope he can get to meet some of you! Email me or call.

Ray

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
