I was fishing today with a double showgirl and I had about a pound northern on. I got it to within 10 feet of the boat when a muskie came up and grabbed both the northen and the lure. It spit the northern and the lure out twice only to come immediatly back at it. After about 5 minutes of this I finally caught both the northen and the muskie. The muskie measured 48". Just thought id share the story with you guys... Im sure you all have some just like it.

A couple years ago, a buddy and I were fishing for eyes in about 20 ft of water when he got a bite, started bringing it in. About half way in, he got slammed. After a few minutes, I slide the net under a a 2 pound northern and a 41 inch musky....all on 6 pound test! Best part was, it was my buddy's first musky, and neither of us brought a camera, so to this day, our friends don't beleive he caught it!

The muskies have been all over the northerns this year. I've never seen them chase and follow the northerns like they have been. Lots of different lakes, same story. This was happening even before fish would look at other baits. Couple times we had northerns hit right next to the boat and the muskies were still arse-to-nose with them, like they were sitting there just waiting for them to move.

Fishing had been kind of slow for me lately so I went out and bought the pikiest bait I could possible find and ripped it around like it was struggling to get off a hook. Yes, it worked. It was by and far the most aggressive action I've seen this year in one day. I'm going to stick with this pattern the rest of the season until I find something that works. KEEP IT SIMPLE, STUPID! I think I need to write this on the inside of my sunglass lenses this season.

50inch - did she just grab the northern and not let go and you were able to net her, or did you get a hook into her as well?

I think your question was for the original poster - I have not actually had any skies grab my northerns but got action on a bait I was using to imitate a hooked/struggling northern.

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets.

Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
