New member from Zimmerman here---

14 posts in this topic

Hi there everyone, just wanted to introduce myself to my fellow Gator Jabbers-

We are fairly new to the Zimmerman area and live just nw of town on 277th. On the weekends we are usually at my parents cabin up in outing, north of crosby, which is where I grew up. I am 35 as of yesterday and hunt and fish more than anyone I know! lol

I see there is at least one other Zimmermanite here- Hello-

I tried out Sandy lake tonight with no luck. Didn't see a thing but was only spearing from 2-4. Caught a 3 lb bass on a tip-up, but that was the only action i had. There was a max of 4 inches of ice and it was cracking like mad. That and with the fact that the sun was out and there is no snow I think is a problem right now.

Does anyone know how they are doing on little elk? I tried it once last winter but it is seriously murky!

Well, sure we'll be chatting as I love these forums!

I forgot to mention that tonight was my first trip out with my new spear. It is actually not new, just new to me. My favorite uncle made it back in the 40's and it has been hanging in my cousins garage since he died in 1985. for many years I have been working him over for this spear and last year on the last day of spearing season he surprised me with it.

I'll get a pic of it here eventually-

Anyone else using antique hand-me-downs? lol

Elwood,

I might give it a try tomorrow evening. I have the crappy blue portable if you see one out there. It serves the purpose, but is on the chopping block-

First ice? Heck, there is still open water! lol

Michael, I go by butternut40. Good to see you on this board.

Thanks guys,

I've seen you on there Cherokee, I'll have to watch myself around you know! lol

Trav, we are talking about bowsite.commm, it is a bowhunting community similar to this, with some seriously diehard liberals on the community forum that constantly need to be kept out of trouble! Which is my full-time job! lol

Work is getting in the way of spearing this afternoon! [PoorWordUsage]!

I hear you on the work getting in the way. Made plans for this weekend but it seems we will be working Saturday. Better this than no business.

I agree with you on the lib thing. I just let you take care of them as you do a great job.

    • Decided to blow my lineup up at the last minute.   Combs Powroznik Defoe Kennedy Jones Jr.   I am gonna kick myself if the guys I took out do well. I just can't bet against Defoe, the hottest stick going lately.

    • Isn't it all illegal? Our gov used the 4th for toilet paper but I guess had Bush been in charge you might have something to be mad about. Now Obama always gets the free pass because that's your party right? There is no trusting any of these people and worse yet we don't get to the truth until it's far too late, usually decades later. We have two sides spewing half truths full of lies, impossible to figure it all out, worse if you trust one or the other. What I do know is supposedly wikileaks had both DNC and GOP emails, now if you think the right wingers control them whatever but I put more faith in them based on simple history and actions. What actions of the DNC or the GOP or CNN or FOX whatever news source you find worthy do you find credible in this day and age?

       
    • It's a garage listed as a loft build.  2x6 floor beneath the trusses to it will take a good amount of weight and I'm not putting much for weight up there more so just a bunch of bigger boxes spread out.  I will be good as far as weight goes.  Budget would like to be a couple hundred but would go to 5ish if I throw in stairs.  And the fire pole may be the best idea yet! 
    • Before you fill it up, do you know how much additional load the trusses can take and how much weight you plan on adding? Also, what is your budget?

    • So who should I blame then the Independents, Green Party, Libertarians, any other party not worthy of your vote? Oh wait, I should probably blame the Russians or the Alt Right or the Progressive? This is the problem, you still believe in the "system" that has failed us again and again. You can't fix this mess with these parties, or with people who think like them. All you guys do is fight each other over the same ridiculous arguments without end, then the media fans the flames and you double down on your party like they have all the answers. How exactly does a person who doesn't believe in any of it sway the masses who are programed to pick a side for life and stick with it no matter what happens? Sorry but I am no programmed that way and never will be.

      Honestly all we need is some common sense, something 8 out of 10 people will easily agree with when given a choice but we rarely get to choose such things. This stuff isn't rocket science, it is very easy to see the corruption. Go dig back in the Trump thread, I said several times lets get the money out of politics and we fix a lot of a problems all at once. That is something most people with common sense can agree to but you get people defending the status quo. I even got called out several times to put some ideas up, as usual I posted up some ideas that most are scared to put in writing and not one person responded because they are too busy attacking/defending one party or the other. We are a divided country and until we meet in the middle and figure out some very simple problems we will be stuck in this mess. There is no conservative or progressive utopia that will save us, until the right/left extremist settle down and meet in the middle with what I hope is a large but not vocal majority we will go around and around again. It isn't up to the politicians, it is up to us to force the changes we want, they will follow us, trust me they will bow down to us if we just find some middle ground. We already have all the power, we just have to agree to use it in a way that helps everyone, not the guys writing the big checks.
    •   Dry rub is a little too salty for me. I mostly smoke pike, walleye and jumbo perch.
    • Canadian fly in bear hunt?   Catching walleye all day and bear hunting in the evening is pretty spectacular, and it won't hurt the wallet too bad.
    • They had to do this. It was one of those mandates the Evil One.......the former President, insisted on, initiated and produced. Thus, they had no option but to throw it out....the Evil One had done it.
    • Can we put my nephew down one will be hunting a good deal. @Borch
    • Paul Ryan- He mad bro.
