4 Shots From Today

8 posts in this topic

Did some riverbank fishing and cleanup in and along the river today. I brought along the camera,but only fired it about 6 times and kept these 4. I was experimenting on what metering mode to use when the light was constantly changing and moving around,shooting in shady/brightly lit woods. Spot metering with -1 1/3 ec seemed to work ok,so I left it set to that.

I will try to I.D. these items,but there is a strong possibility that I could be wrong. smirk

You had me going on the IDs until the third one. That one seemed a bit too corny. Nice shots. I especially like the clean bg and pose on the last one. Only 6 shots taken? It would have taken me 60 shots to come away with this many decent photos. whistle

Thanks.

You know X,I was suprised that background turned out like it did. It was about 75 yards to the other side of the river,he was sitting on the wood,right above the water,and would swoop out over the river to catch bugs.

We also caught 4 Walleye,1 6 lb.Cat,and 1 Big Snapping Turtle.

My father hooked the snapper and was ever so nice to let me get it off for him. I grumbled a little,to which he replied "just lip him like a bass,that's how I used to do it"

I cut his line and said "maybe next time"

I like the catepillar the most because of the color contrast.

Also any pics of the Walleye? smile

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
