I was wondering the same. I drove by there yesterday when I went to my grandparents house. It looked like a ROUGH day to be on the water. There were whitecaps on the little ponds, and the lakes looked aweful. My guess would be a good crankin bite.

Wonderin if ted and shane pulled their bags from "the spot" at n/s center. I've always heard every annual winners always win just from "the spot"

The Capras, Ravelings, Moynaghs are a different class of fisherman than most of us. They lost more fish than I've caught.

I don't think it is a coincidence that the same guys finish near the top at these events. I believe that time on the water is a huge factor. These guys that always finish well are, and have in the past, put there time in on the water. The more you fish the more you are going to catch.

The other factor that sets these guys apart for the rest is there confidence. I watched the weigh-in, and to me in was amazing the difference in the attitudes. I didn't know most of the guys and only recognized a few by name, but it was obvious to me the guys that had the attitude of winners and the guys that were just happy to be there.

I strongly believe that the combination of time on the water and confidence in yourself is a recipe for success.

Just my 2 cents.

I will agree with that to an extent but i think we all have our own opinion on the Capras!!!!

So where does a big bank account get me spots?

I hear this frequently I think it is nonsense. I suppose that is why KVD won angler fo the year too considering he is the biggest $$ winner in history this theroy must be how he does it too.

Nevermind the hours on the water these guys put in it must be the bank account thing. Well I guess I will put my fishing gear away and go make some $$ so I can win tourneys. Good Fishing!!!

Thats not apples to apples, KVD and our local pro's....come on. I've seen it and watched it happen down here on the Miss. river.. If I've offended you My Bad! but certain people pay for spots. Is it wrong, some would say yes and others will say no, it a personal thing.

we finished 11th 29+lbs for 10 fish. i was just saying what i heard and they gave the spot to another team the second day and they pulled 13+lbs. not starting anything. congrats to them for finding something different on very pressured lakes. and congrats to the second place team for losing with 36+lbs of fish. that had to be hard.

There is no need to go into detail about our own opinions, we have them for a reason and that is just how it is!!!! Yes they are good anglers there is no doubt about that.

You can have all the spots in the world you still have figure out how to get the big fish to bite and deal with weather/angling pressure/etc. I'm sure the boat rocks both ways too, you don't think everyone and their brother is keeping an eye on where those guys fish and 'borrow' those spots. Its boils down to skill, time on the water, and the circles you travel in for sharing information.

    • Well another game 7 tomorrow night.  Sens have a tough go having to play in Pitt.  Hoping they can pull it off though.  That Karlsson has some wheels!  Even in the 3rd period last night he was fast.     If it is Preds and Pitt it is a toss up, probably go 7 games.  If it is Preds and Sens, I think Preds will take it in 5-6.  
    • I get your drift Rebel but this kid is not going looking for trouble. I think he just wants some ability to respond as a last resort. Sorta the same reason so many of us have carried for  years-  a last ditch option. And he is not going to walk around with it under his raincoat! Ha Ha! I guess I will have to take a look at some of these things just for the heck of it.  To me they have always appeared to be a plastic shooting appliance. I have no use for one and no interest in buying one. There are other options and I certainly do not consider them to be decent hunting weapons,  although I know the younger generation does.
    • I've got $100 that says it's the diaphragm, like I first said. Put yer hand under the carb input are where your line and diaphragm are. Pump that bulb hard. if you get a drop or two of gas leaking out there, you DO have a hole or tiny tear. Pumping it up makes it run better at high speed and /or brings up idle is the telltale sign.
    • Thanks for the input guys.  When the bulb is pumped up it does run fine at high RPM's after a little bit.  I can hear/feel it want to kick in all the way and then it goes fine.  So sometimes it hesitates just a little bit before jumping up to full RPM's.  Of course the boat is on the lift at the cabin so this weekend I will check the size of the lines under the cowl so I can buy some of those along with some other parts.  I will have to decide if I trailer it home or work on it up at the lake when I am there for a week in mid June.  Thanks again for some direction.
    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL
