Hook Set for Vets--Congrats Tonka Bass...

7 posts in this topic

We had more than a few FM members at the Hook set for vets tournament on Big Marine. Was a beautiful day on the water, just got home myself(Ray Esboldt and I teamed up)... Congrats to Tonka Bass and partner for bringing home some hardware.. 5th Place out of about 35 boats if I had to guess, with some very will known and good anglers! Ray and I were lucky enough to squeak out 4th...

Congrats to all you guys! That's alot of boats on that lake to do so well.

I've wanted to do that tourney the last couple years but I just can't seem to line up a partner. Just another reason I need a boat!

Congrats again!

Always got to love it when our group (FMers) shows well in a tournament. Nice day, but I wish we could have had that one fish that was about 30 seconds from being ours. I'm still wondering why I didn't say, "let's start there." That's just the way it goes.

Thanks for sharing the boat, Deitz. Someday, when I grow up, I might even throw a dropshot rig.

Good job to you too Dietz. It was nice to get out and just fish. I finally put to use some of that drop shot knowledge that everyone shared! What a technique. I was missing out before! I think the winning weight was 14 1/2 pounds.

    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
