$1,000.00 flathead caught

9 posts in this topic

I heard that the flathead that the DNR released by New Ulm and had a bounty on it was caught by Franklin. Any truth to this?

Was caught two weekends ago by a gal from Franklin. They were able to release the fish, which was a 30 pound fish. If you follow Mankato news, it was hard to miss it. Free Press and KEYC both did storys, which I am sure you can find it on their webpage. The Fish is referred to as Big D if your searching.

anyone find out where they got that Flathead in the first place? Was it on its way back home or? Long way to go I would think.

dtro- Do you ever fish this stretch of river? By the looks of it you don't need any more spots for quality fish, I think you have that handled. But if you ever decide to come up this way shoot me a email, I would be happy to meet up with you.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
