Slump Buster

7 posts in this topic

Well sort of......

Been on a dry spell lately and it sure was nice to remove my own hook from a fish for a change last night.

Still haven't been able to put a good pattern together on these fish, sporadic and spread out. When you do find a fish though it seems like the same rod gets hit over and over again. We've been referring to that rod as being "in the slot". Now if you are able to cast out and hit "the slot in the slot", you might as well not even put you rod in the holder.......right Aanderud? smile

Back to the slumpbuster, I say sort of because it was only about 15lbs, and as I jumped into my truck to go home, I found an orange colored primate in my passenger seat frown

Well it can't make it any worse. I have had that monkey for a while now and it isn't working for me so I thought I would give him a change of scenery.

Please give him a good home.

By the way, he likes to have his belly rubbed.

He likes his ears rubbed also Darren. Hang him from your rod and good things will happen to you.

Darren, are you bringing the monkey along tonight? Might as well. Last time he was in my boat he was tied to my rod holder. Put him on yours and it could be a whole different story.

I also wanted to mention that if you see a smallish maybe 14 inch tire floating downstream past you, and you decide at the last minute to reel in fast and cast out really really far to try to catch it, and you just miss by a wee bit -- you might want to reel up some of that line instead of just leaving it there. Because when a fish does hit, having 80 yards of line out takes forever to reel in, and the dinks just aren't worth it. smile

The flats are biting fine, but big earl hasn't been in my boat lately.

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
