56 posts in this topic

Secret word: FM FALL FATTIES

Please have this phrase written on a piece of paper in the photo WITH the fish. Fishes mouth should be closed and board readable. You can post a second pict of you holding the fish as well.

Have fun my friends, I hope all have a heavy fish pulling back on their rods this weekend.

Even if someone has already posted a big fish.. still post yours, we all like to see fish!

A little over 19" but skinny, last cast of the night, caught less than an hour ago. Otherwise it was somewhat slow, we ended up with 7 and I don't think any others were bigger than 16". Gorgeous night to be on the water, glad you let us Friday guys join in the fun Deitz, thanks. Good luck everyone, this fish shouldn't be to hard to beat.

Well done Duffman, nice start to the contest.

What did it hit on?

I got a good one tonight too, Had a hard enough time taking a picture with my camera phone while in my waders, could not even think about putting it on a board and taking a pic of that. I will have to think of something because I think I will be getting out tomorrow, also in my waders. Maybe wander up to shore and get a quick shot. Got mine on a pearl tube in 4' of water

Nice fish guys.

Hopefully I can do better tomorrow with a little more time. I caught this on a summer craw ragetail in 5' of water.

I don't have a chance BnS (Come on cold front!!) LOL smile

I'm no dummy, there's way too much experience and skill roaming these parts. 21+" will take it. But I'll claim the prize for first fish posted, that's gotta be worth what? A splitshot or two? laugh

Oh yea, what'd it hit on? 10 inches of blue flecked black rubber.

I took a beating today. Managed 6 fish for about 7 hours of fishing. Had on good one on, trying to "Grab the Net" and it came unbuttoned. Probably a 19" + fish. Best fish was maybe 2.5 lbs. I hate wind, especially a east wind. Will try again tomorrow but probably won't have much time.

Here is my entry. Up on Mille Lacs for the fall frenzy get together at Appledoorn's. Trolling an X-rap Shad in Purple over 9 f.o.w. with rocks.

I left before the word was posted, and forgot to grab a board pic, but she went 20.5, just a thick fish. A new PB for smallmouth. Considering no board pic though, I will dq' myself from the big bass contest. Sorry, just wanted to get a quick pic and put her back.

frown I didn't see this topic before I went fishing (mostly because I don't usually target bass and read this forum infrequently). Here's my invalid entry then, didn't measure but a good photoshop estimate put's it just over 20"

IMG_0397.jpg

It rained Sunday and you can see I got wet... Anybody else bear the rain because the fish went nuts for a while there. First time our boat has ever had a triple.

If you do it next week I'll be sure to take a peak in before going fishing though, so my entry will be valid. My ability to catch big bass will remain in question however.

I got out on Saturday and had about 4 hours to fish so I tried for bass with small crank baits like DT 4, rattle trap, xrap, fat rap, top water prop, and of course the ole buzz bait and spinner. I discovered quickly that this was to be a pike day. I mananged to battle quite a few with nothing over 5lbs but they were agressive and fun. I thought with no bass to be had I would try the panfish as well with some small plastics. I was off a shoreline with defined weededge that dropped off quick and gave it a shot. The bite was very good with a sunfish of crappie on most casts. I also got a few very nice bull sunfish in the 9" class mixed in. Oh and while pan fishing I did finally get few bass to make a showing. However they were in the 14 to 15 inch class. Sunday morning I planned to get out early but the wind and rain kept me off the water.

Yeah, I brought the laptop up and he has wireless but I couldn't get connected for some reason. I finally connected at about 2:30 am on Sunday morning when we got in from the bull session. It was quite the trip, wish you were up there. Many stories about the Deitz up there. Sleeping against the door, that was a good one.

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
