haha! awesome!!

I never look down on those kids rods, with the "snoopy" rod being the most classic for me.

Back when I was 9 or 10, I was in cub scouts on a camping trip out on some property our scoutmaster owned in Louisiana somewhere. There was a pond we were fishing one day, and our Scoutmaster happened to be using his kid's snoopy rod cuz the kid wanted to use a "real" rod. The scoutmaster ended up catching a 30+ pound carp on it, took forever to get the darn thing landed!

I think I need to take the sponge bob rods out of the garage for league night tonight. Put like 40 pound powerpro on 'em and give 'er the onion.

I was up in Alaska this summer, in Anchorage I saw some kids fishing for silver salmon (up to 15 lbs) on those dinky kids rods. I imagine they must just put some high lb test on them

Nope, the pontoon is kept on leech lake...used primarily for drinking and napping between the morning and evening fish outings.

To be honest with you, I have no idea what is living in that cesspool. The carp was caught 15+ years ago...

I did notice that there were like 7 people fishing in there this Spring when I drove by one evening. Must be something in there???

That's a nice cat on the kiddie rod. Is it just me, or does it look like Dad's got some gas? laugh

7 or 8 years ago when I lived in Mankato, we caught several different species in Hiniker. Carp, Bass, Northerns, panfish, etc.

Wow, that is crazy. I saw the DNR reports for it and it only shows they found black crappies, bluegills, sunfish, redhorse, and white crappie. But, it does say they have stocked adult northerns and walleyes in it almost every year.

We used to watch schools of carp swim the shorelines all the time. They didn't always want to eat, but they were surely there. People used to fish that pond constantly when I lived down there.

Amazing story for sure, That must have been a really fat Channel Cat though...It weighed 21lbs, but was only 32" inches long! WOW, that fish must have had a belly on it.

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
