Favorite Photo 2008

8 posts in this topic

Pick your favorite shot of 2008, preferably a non-traditional pose. Include a brief description of why it is you fav.

Here's one to start... Last few minutes of sunlight in NW MN... Was fishing with a fellow meteorologist Jay Trobec from Sioux Falls and his wife as a weak front approached. I set the hook and then handed the rod to his wife. She cranked it all the way in while Jay took photos. Quick release and the fish swam into the sunset... Here's a sequence.

This is my favorite release picture this year, and all around favorite picture this year as well. It's a fairly traditional release shot, but the flash illuminated the water so well, and the way it makes the fish look is just sick.

This was a 50" fish my friend (Riverkid21) caught earlier this summer. The picture was taken by our mutual friend who always seems to be in the boat when we catch big fish.

This is a horrible picture of me but I think the fish is framed well. It was also my PB - 48-ish but we didn't spend a lot of time handling her. It took me a couple hours to wipe the smile off my face after that fish.

Here's my favorite. My wife was with me and took the shot, along with both of our mutts. It was the first muskie she ever saw in person and had a serious "holy BEEP" moment when it came up! She did a great job of netting it and it was a beautiful weekday morning, warm/calm/nobody else out. One of the prettier fish i've caught to date as well. Need more days like that!

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks. 
    •     Ok, I think I need to clarify my statement. My belief is they would be better off in letting ObamaCare collapse on it's own than passing "Obamacare part 2." My first choice would be to just repeal it. Then I suppose a debate can happen  
    •   Ryan's bill is a direct taxpayer subsidy to the healthcare industry, via the insurance companies.  I think we have enough experience with subsidies to know that the outcome generally isn't good with that.   Probably the best thing to do is just repeal the ACA, and hand it back to the healthcare industry.  But that isn't likely to happen because there is just too much money involved.   Like any other slippery slope, the sledding is pretty good going downhill - not so easy going back up...
