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.

    • Check out the 2017 Obsession Hurcan 366fps and 3.9 lbs!
    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
