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.

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
    • Spotted it on the way back from getting wood and tried to sneak up on it.

    • How in the world did this advertisement not get zapped?
    • Look great but the page is horrible, anybody figure out the price? The one in the video looks like a buzz bait, do they come in different tails or all the tails come with?  Anybody speak Japanese?
