Ugliest Cat in the MN river

17 posts in this topic

This one I pulled up a couple nights ago was thrashed from spawning. It was definately blind as one eye was missing and the other was completely opaque. It had no problem taking down a 12-14" sucker though. Its back fin was also a bloody mess. The measurements were 46.5 X 25 Whisker Warrior wouldn't even date this chick!

Gotta love the roommate talking smack since I've been pulling in big girls all summer long in front of him...Although smeese was WAY over due for a big one and i'm glad he finally got one. Now he knows why i will sit on the river by myself to get these beasts. Nice fish smeese!

P.S. If i was drunk enough i might just date her eek

Nice! I wish I could make it I will be in SD. I will have to checkout your tank when i am in the metro another time. I am not over there (TCMAS) so much since my tank came down. Good group of people though!

    • I know I didn't pay $28 each for the trolley. Maybe half that. On the lake so I can't look up where I got them right this second.    Menards has the strut channel and a bunch of accessories. 
    • Strut is $15 per 10' at Menards. I've bought the trolleys from Mcmaster Carr before. Looks like they are $25 each on there for the doubles.
    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
