KOTC upgrade....finally!

16 posts in this topic

First KOTC upgrade for me in 7 weeks. It is not a monster, but it's 3.5 more points. I'll take anything after that stretch of dinks! This was the big one of the night, otherwise just 1 more smaller fish (7-8 lbs) and a couple missed hooksets and a hit and run or two. Thanks for going out Darren and JJ. JJ, we'll get you on a fish someday...I feel bad, that's 3 outings with me and nothing but a 6 lb sheepshead.

40x24, 26 lbs.

thanks guys. the mid-twenties is a great ice breaker, for what will hopefully be a big one on friday.

i usually wear whatever shirt i was wearing at work when i go fishing. reduces the laundry workload that way. usually that is a random polo shirt.

No way, that was just a warmup so that I knew what something bigger than 10 lbs felt like again. It's been so long, I didn't want to wait til friday and then freak out when I had the mambajamba on the line.

Friday's fish will be at least 30 lbs for each of us. I would suggest that we need to bring some food for refreshments, as we'll be tired from reeling in the big ones. I'll give you a call tonight and we can work out the details of where to meet and when and what to bring, etc...I'm stoked. KOTC-greenification and BPCL-moneyfication all in one night, I can smell it.

    • The Schrillary reich didnt compromise Bernie? And when hasnt the biased media compromised an election in recent memory? Nick is a hack and consistently posts 2nd grade propaganda, hes sold out to the party. They've been exposed and are resorting to extremes.  They went all in with obama and got called, he had far more to do with the outcome of the elections than anything  leaked by anyone.  Now its the fake blame game, humorous to say the least.   Snowflake butthurt apparently leads to desperation.
    • Really??? Catfish is my favorite fish.
    • I suspect you haven't visited this year or seen the reports.     And, for the record, I didn't say I was catching "tons" on Mille Lacs, but it was the best lake I've visited in the last two years.  And it wasn't even close.    
    • I think Schells is Minnesota's oldest brewer, so they must be doing something right.   I know some guys from New Ulm, and they all drink Schells.   That's how I got turned onto it in the first place.  Never got burned out on it, though..
    • Sink or swim? I am sure that some of you have heard that if you put seeds in water the ones that sink are better then the ones that float. I have heard this from the old guys but I have never tried it myself. Well I found myself with some radish seeds and I decided to pour them into a cup of water and sure enough about half sunk to the bottom while the rest floated. I got out a bowl and filled it with coconut husk planting mix and put the floaters on one side and the sinkers on the other. I am now waiting to see what side comes up first or if both sides will come up at the same time.   Any comments? Has anyone else heard of this and does anyone check their seeds before planting?
    • Maybe he's just hungry............    
    • Catfish!! I haven't had that in about ten years! Dang, that looks good! 
    • All day long you sit here and demand answers from everyone else but you never answer anyone else's questions. I wonder why that is?    
    • I would guess even Fletcher would say Stall has passed all expectations. I will give credit to Fletcher for building this team from absolute zero, we had almost no skill or prospects when he took over,  sure it took longer than we wanted but right now it is worth it. No doubt luck can play a roll, most GM's don't have a Suter, Parise, Stall & BB fall into their lap but quality drafting and development are also paying big dividends right now. We also have a lot of high end prospects that can fill in for the vets in the coming years. A cup is still a long ways away but this year is probably the best NHL team the state has ever seen.
