I Love October Too!!

12 posts in this topic

Maybe some of you will recall my 4 day walleye fishing trip to Cass Lake with Jeff "Borch" Borchardt last fall...

It resulted in my first muskie ever and a beauty at that.

Here was the report from last year... Hope This Isn't The Start of Something

Well... this years trip has come and gone and I didn't have to wait until the last night for magic to happen again.

Thats right, got another one pulling walleye cranks. grin Storm Thunderstick in Chrome/Blue to be specific.

The secret is to leave the muskie gear in the cabin! Shimano Compres with Garcia 7000s were left behind along with the Jakes, Believers, DCGs, Bulldawgs, topwaters, etc. We fished a little bit intentionally for them but the real focus of the trip is pulling cranks shallow at night for walleyes. The walleyes cooperated as well!

I'll get one on purpose one of these days but I'm super happy to be able to hoist one for a photo again this year.

hmmm, interesting tecnique. too bad i'm not that brave, lol. after catching a bunch of walleyes i bet when that hit and took off you had visions of a world record grin ... chrome/blue huh? i've been working on the chrome thing for jerk-baits and top waters and finnaly got it figured out so the chrome stays chrome after the epoxy is put on. was that chrome/chrome blue or solid blue( not many thundersticks in my collection). i'll be out fishing with a chrome/solid pink top, WTD pretty soon, and i think i'll get one made up like you said in chrome/blue.

Nice fish Chris! Love the release pic!

I have to tip my hat, Hanson and Borch were out late season in ideal waters targeting walleyes primarily, but with the prospect of some pike and muskie in mind. Like I always say, "You can't catch them from home!"

Congrats on a good trip and a nice muskie!

Everything went pretty smoothly on that one. Seems that for some reason that when Hanson and I go fishing one of us catches a big one. Then to add to the positive experience even the photos turn out pretty good so he must be living right. laugh

Well... you did put about a half dozen pike in the boat previous to the muskie eating so we were well practiced on the handling of toothy critters. grin

    •   Attached is what you can get with the $40 package with SlingTV. Looks like they have history but not discovery. They also have $20 and $25 packages. The only thing I watched with any regularity when I had it was ESPN so I dropped it. 
    • I'm also a moderator, and just about to shut your  garbage mouth posts down. Go get yourself an education, which you still have not provided proof of, because there IS nothing to provide. You are nothing but an uneducated,  ill-advised rabble rouser.  I will warn you now to go read the rules of the site before your name-calling posts start to disappear in entirety.
    • Well said Del! There weren't issues till he decided to stick his nose in it. The mod for that thread did just fine.
    • I meant harmless in the sense they don't kill fish. With that being said, I'm sure the host fish would prefer that it not have a lamprey attached to it, but at the end of the day, the fish will live...literally. Lampreys are very common in the upper St. Croix River system. I see them attached to redhorse all the time, which makes sense, as redhorse are by far the most abundant fish in the system. If the lampreys haven't "crashed" that system after several thousand years of coexistence, I'm liking gamefishes' chances for the next several thousand years also 
    • John Podesta May Have Violated Federal Law By Not Disclosing 75,000 Stock Shares 3/26/2017 Daily Caller   John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation. When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock. The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”   Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company. Liberals and conservatives alike tell TheDCNF Podesta should have disclosed the stock. “Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.  “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. “If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”   OH, MY...   And there is soo much more to this story...   Absolute criminals...   Link
    • Schumer goes off on Trump supporter at NYC restaurant, witness says Published March 27, 2017 New York Post   Witness: Schumer went off on Trump supporter at restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat. One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ” Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”   Sheezus....   What an unhinged lunatic a-hole....   Could you imagine if this had been paul ryan acting in this way ??   I think a knee to the groin was in order..
