Check Out My new Bully Partner

15 posts in this topic

I was down stocking up on some more bullies last week and turned my head and found someone catchin bullies with me. I got a snap shot on my cell phone and went back to fishing. Looked over and he was gone. I caught a bully and went to put in my bucket and found he was messing with my crawler tub. Sure enough I scooted him away and went back to bully fishing.

The bullies where not jumping in the bucket, so I moved to another spot a couple hundred yards away. I was pulling in a bully when I caught something out of the corner of my eye. Sure enough I saw the little bugger right at my heals grin He must have followed me over lookiing for more bullies.

I was eating dinner at dangerfields in Shakopee last night on their deck and this guy climbed the tree right next to us and was waiting for a handout....

I was sitting on the lakeshore at night, catching me some bullies for later, and heard some rustling in the bushes about ten yards away. I shone my flashlight in that direction, and saw 8 pairs of beady little eyes looking at me and my bait, slowly creeping over to me.

I moved to a different spot. One raccoon, maybe two raccoons, I can deal with. Eight... that's a little different story.

Raccoons are cute...until they gnaw off your fingers.

I am still waiting to see a pretty possum up close and personal. I have seen plenty flattened like a pancake and one or two crossing the road way in front of me.

    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
