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!

    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
    • The truth comes out!
