8 posts in this topic

i know this is a long shot but i was fishing down by the lilydale boat launch friday night by the wing dams. And i accidently left one of my rods down there. brought 3 left with 2.... it is a 7' white catfish rod from Gander mountain. tip is glow in the dark green with a spinning rod on it and 65lb power pro on it. pretty sure it wont turn up just thought i would try and give this a shot i have seen other people find poles on here after they lost them

Did you leave it on one of the wingdams? I was down there on those wingdams fishing for cats on Saturday night - Didn't see one out there then. Good luck!

Johnny,

Did you have a fire going? I think we saw your fire, but to dark to see you. Did you guys get anything?

If you saw a fishing boat with head lights, that was us grin.

quackkills,

If I had found out earlier in the day (if it had been posted around 12:15 am Saturday), we sure would have looked for ya.

Sorry and good luck!

That was me and the GF sitting by the fire. We were using bullheads and didn't get a single run, much less a fish.

me and my buddies were off the second one downstream from the launch, i left it by the logs on shore but then we jumped in the boat and headed up the river. thats how i forgot it. yea we had a fire going for a little bit. had two runs on bull heads and one on cut bait. landed one on a frog i caught by shore, about a 15-18lb channel. nothin else the rest of the night. heading back out after work to give it another try and maybe check in the woods to see if someone maybe threw it in the woods or somethin.

I'm not sure how familiar you are with the area, but a single guy wondering around out there in the woods will likely draw some attention from Sen. Larry Craig's cronies who hang out in those woods.

That's why I always bring the GF when I go fishing down there.

Sounds like you caught a pretty nice channel atleast though. 15-18 lbs is nothing short of shabby!

Oh Mr. Short Shorts won't bother you. He seems very timid. I have passed by him many times and we always say hi. I think people scare the guy or at least he is very timid around them. Not that I want to strike up a conversation with him or anything and give him the wrong idea. crazy

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
