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.

Ditto!!! I would ad that I prefer the jig head to be white also.

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.

    • Thanks for the heads up man I was looking at Garmins but I feel like the only ones I saw with SI were way out of my price range ha
    • I need to make a beer run the fridge is getting low up in here.   #rentfree
    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
