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.

    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
    • What a treat to see a tanager.
    • Beautiful pics as always Jim.
