No Reb.......never saw her! Far as we know she is still hanging out on the spot, waiting for Pinky to come strolling by for a treat!

Better pack the extra clothes!

Yes we moved fish, didn't even look at the water temp. Just threw the lures where Jonesi told me to throw them!!

Pretty sure they are talking about the 56 that one of Jonesi's clients boated earlier this year. That fish is going to be pushing the record this fall for sure.

One of his clients got a 56.5 earlier this summer. Just a hog. Rebel has a date with Jonesi and hopefully this big girl on 16th of Oct. Isn't that right Reb!!

I've seen that fish, the 56. Steve showed me when I was out with him and the following day I saw her 5-6 times lounging with 4-5 other muskies on a tiny weedpatch. Stupid big.

Rinc... I dont know how big she is... Steve keeps telling me hes gonna put me on the famous "SHE" that he always talks about... also telling me this n that about how much he hopes I'll get my first 55 incher...

10K... yeah Steve guided a customer to a PIG... 56.6x25 late July on Mille Lacs...

Bret... Oct 14th, not 16th... Thanks for the tips... Its just the mystique of Mille Lacs... it'll all turn on for no reason at all sooner or later...

On a side note... Hit French earlier today with no luck... it was a dead sea... unusual for me on French at this time of the year... hit all those spots that brought me luck last year but ZIP... water was SOOOO green looked like we could walk on it... but at least I got some practice in preparing for the Oct 14th Marathon... Sad thing is that I had a 7000iC3 replaced couple weeks ago... and that replacement crapped out on me tonite... *sigh*

Daiwa saltist is a 6.4:1 and is coming out with a levelwind, that might be worth waiting for.

the 700TE is awesome same price as the trinidad, but its got a levelwind, having both Reb, I love my levelwinds its quite nice, but once you get used to not having it its ok.

good luck

the jury is still out on Diawa... few has said that it doesnt cast too well... so I dont know...

as far as choices go... Im thinking about Trinidad/Torium 14, Daiwa Saltist (both levelwind and convential), Okuma Red Isis, and Shimano Calcutta 400/700TE...

I need to see Daiwa and Okuma in person before I'll decide...

Thanks!!!

Are complete sentences and the entire word that hard to type? Life in text is kind of a PITA to read...

that's actually pretty good. i have two brothers that aren't quite stone deaf, 1 is 80% both and the other is 70/90% left to right, and they don't even do as well. and matty if i remember is stone deaf. just fine matty, i understood it just fine.

I wasn't aware of that, sorry ole matty.

How does that effect typing? I'm not being sarcastic, i'd seriously like to know how being deaf impedes the ability to read/write coherently. I would think that if you were deaf or hard of hearing you'd be better at it. Maybe i'm wrong.

"Deaf people can do anything, except hear."

I'm deaf myself. we can read and write just fine. I do type that way as well when I'm using my pager to communicate with others. There's nothing wrong with that....There's alot of hearing people out there who do type that way like we do....It has nothing to do with our deafness.

Just because we can't hear doesnt mean we can't read or write coherently.

Everyone INCLUDING hearing people do have flaws when it comes to reading or writing. NO ONE IS PERFECT at typing or reading...

as peachy stated deaf people can do anything.

although my bros.could have tried harder, lol. one thing that hurt their ability, according to their specialist when they were younger, is sign language. when speaking sign ''the bear went into the woods and scratched on a tree'' is broken down to something like this...''bear went to woods scratched tree''.

then after learning that sentence structure using sign they had a harder time writing out ''correct'' sentence structure. no not every deaf person falls into that. but i know a few who have. remember i'm talking strictly about who i know or have contact with. i'm certainly not an expert on the deaf community and any strides made over the years may have addressed this.

    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
