Beer+Bonfire+Friends=Life's greatest questions

40 posts in this topic

This came up a couple weeks ago (don't ask how) and I wanted to get your thoughts and ideas.

Here it is:

You are blindfolded and hogtied by the mob. They put you into the trunk of the car and take you to a lake/river/stream. You have 20 minutes to catch a fish or you will be killed. What lure are you going to use assuming;

a) The fish has to be a legal catch, no snagging allowed.

B) The choice for rod/real/line is unlimited.

c) No live bait

d) Fish species or size does not matter.

What are you going to throw?

My answer: An 1/8 ounce jig head with a 2 inch white twister tail.

Sidenote: As you can imagine this led to several more beers and hours of debate fun!

Easy, pink and white flu flu jig tipped with a Berkley Powerbait 1" grub under a bobber on a 6' medium light rod and 4 lb test.

That's exactly what I would use. You can't go wrong with pink and white flu flue. I would probably use gulp maggots though.

Exactly! I would switch to a Gulp! Wax Worm though. It can catch the littlest ones. This would also be the combo I would use if I needed to feed myself and was allowed only one set up.

The biggest bucktail I can find. I figure go big or go home!

I'd cut back on the alcohol. Other than that I'd just go for bass. They're the easiest fish to catch and they bite on anything. That way it really wouldn't matter what presentation you chose.

I like the switch brands of beer suggestion!

However, we have a rule. When we have these little get to gethers we are not allowed to spend more than 40 cents per can. Mmmmmmmmmmm gotta love cheap, skunky beer!

I would insist on a cane pole and a supermag bull dawg. I would then use my ninja skills to dispach the mobsters with the cane pole and 1 pound lure. Then I would drive home in their car.

Senko with 6lb line on 6'6" medium light spinning tackle. Show me a dock or two and there would be enough time to drink a few beers with the mobsters in the remaining 15 minutes.

A Dupont spinner if my butt is on the line. Also see what happens when you drink that Cold Spring brew from Glenn's private collection.

Yep! OCF1... No Brainer here, that's what I'd go with, any kind of fish right?

Wow a ton of violaters to the "c" portion. Tinyest of popper flies pulled gently on the water. Killer. But 40 ents or less per beer I'm at a total loss.

I'd use a fly rod like a whip to disarm my captors.

If they wouldn't give me a flyrod, it wouldn't matter what I used...I can catch fish in a bathtub.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
