I fish a lake here in Michigan where it is not all that uncommon to catch 13" gills. I don't have a picture of that fish, but i wish i had. If I get any big ones this winter I will most definately post them for you all to see.

I was with a guy on a private lake fishing Crappies and watched him catch and release a 19"...you could fit a beer can in its mouth. I personaly caught and released a 17" that night and wanted to take it home but the agreement was no keeping or pictures to prove anything. That way everyone will think I'm b.s.ing is what he said.

Rope: The only bad part is that i live close to the Wisconsin border and some guys from down there come up here every day for like a 3 week stretch and keep everything that they catch. I am worried that my favorite lake is going to be desimated in no time at all seeing as the lake is only a little over 500 acres. But i do agree that i am lucky to have such a fishery near me.

    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
    • Way to go Britt!
    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.
