I had a friend whos line got crossed with mine while pulling up a crappie. I am trying to untie the lines and he( knowing that his line is in my hands) tries to set the hook on the fish he felt tugging on his line..I now have no problems with snaking his line if he isnt paying attention..more for me to catch.

OR- everytime you have a knot or tangle in your line your messing with, the line in the other hole gets a bite. Everytime, never fails.

every time my wife calls, as soon as I answer, I get a hit. Frustrating, but I do get fish.

That's why my cell phone would always end up in the bottom of the lake. Accidentally of course wink

Wifey stopped calling for the most part now.

That use to irritate me alot too when my wife calls when I am fishing so I finally did something smart. I purchase a blue tooth ear piece so now when she calls all I have to do is hit the button on my ear and I am hands free to talk to her. I don't have to reach for my phone or keep one of my hands occupied by holding the phone to my ear, I can talk and catch fish at the same time without missing a beat.

How about this one guys.

Me and my brother were fishing for northern's in about 6 feet of water in a eddy off the river, and he left the house for a second to go out side and as soon as he left his pole went down the hole! He came back and I told him what happened and he didn't believe me, and then about 2 minutes later I was getting a bite and I set the hook and brought up a snot rocket with another piece of line in its mouth? I was his jig so I pulled up the line and His pole came up my hole.

That was a weird day.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
