Boilerguy's 1st flathead

31 posts in this topic

Rumor has it that the Boilerguy, southern Minnesota's finest, will be attacking the Minnesota River this weekebd in search of his first mudeye. Lets all cheer him on as he attempts to become a true riverrat.

This spring Eric got hooked on sturgeon and now, the mudeye's.

southern Minnesota's finest

At what?!?!??!

Yes, I'll be on the river this weekend. Looking forward to it. I've fished my share of rivers in my life (Miss, Red, Rainey, Rum, Black, Snake, Nile, Thames) But I've never fished the Minnesota, or caught a flathead before.

Just in case the fishings slow, I'll have a couple days worh of PBR in the cooler for shore lunch. grin

Lets see here... you can't make a post titled Boilerguy's 1st Flathead when he hasn't caught one yet. You might have just jinxed the boat. Anyone seen that monkey?

We will get fish only it may be on Friday night. I planned it for 2 nights thinking that could happen. If all fails and fishing get tough, we will just pour a little PBR on the bait and that should do it.

I'm monkey enough for the boat.

Good Luck on your quest BG. The bite has been hit or miss the past few weeks.

I had the monkey along with last night and wouldn’t ya know it that I caught a Flat less than 5 minutes after anchoring.

Too bad it took 3 hours to get another one.

Monkey good or bad????

I didn’t take any chances, so he became a stowaway once again grin Tag your it.

I was wondering where he ended up. Maybe we should give him to BG. Maybe BG can change the monkey's luck! Mutual luck-bringing?

I got skunked last night for the first time in a while. Not like I've been catching monsters, but at least I've had some small fish action lately, which gets a guy's hope up. But last night, I had not even a single bite! That is the slowest outing I've seen all season (I guess by definition, getting ZERO bites would be the slowest...it's hard to get NEGATIVE bites in one night). I guess the boat had 3 bites total, and 3 fish in the boat, so it's not a total bust, but all of the fish were under 9 lbs (funny, the biggest of the 3 was a channel cat!). And usually I'm used to a bit more hit and run action, or swing and miss. Heck, usually I miss a couple-three bites myself!

On a different note....totally UNRELATED to the monkey finding a new home...Shamu, will you by any chance be at the KOTC gathering? smile

We might have some monkey business in the boat but NO monkey in the boat.

No monkey needed in my boat. Fish are still coming in the boat, but several have been swung in bass style lately. Maybe I can stick a big one again this year at the gathering.

God, aint that the truth. Starting to feel like Jimmy Houston out there. With the cats swinging over the side of the boat.

    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
