Mark hey bud got a PM from your pardner the other day. Glad you guys made it home safe from the NAIFC, bummer on those at the hole "releases" mad Sounds like you guys would have been right there too. wink If anyone tells you fishing has nothing to do with luck there full of it. Sometimes more than not it can put you over the top.

Stay in touch western contingent and looking forward to the Oneida run with you guys when you come out east. It was nice to get a call from North Shore Saturday morning reporting that the east end was tight.

Mark - John was telling me you guys were doing great on raps just wanted to know if you guys worked some Chubbies last ice as well. Gotta a couple of nice whaps on the red tail shiner #4 but didn't connect. frown I should go back to 1/8 oz. rainbow trout forage minnow that's the only thing I really have caught eye's withany consistency.

Tim, John and i dont fish the tournys as partners. The championship was a blast, besides the drive their. Thirteen hours turned into seventeen due to road conditions. My partner and i were pumped after being in second place after day one. Unfortunetly day two was a little tough on us,and we slid to a ninth place finish.

I myself cannot catch a fish on the darter but one of the guys that we fish with does well on them. #4 yellow dace. Seems like the fish at the west end are totally diff. than east end fish.

East end - jigging raps hung high (#7 brown trout was my best color)

West end - buckshots worked tight to the bottom (1/4-1/2oz glo patterns)

And last the Gay Blade(Vibee perch)seemed to work at both ends

Good to here the east end is tight hopefully some of the snow blew off and she makes some ice!!

That's right Justin's your pardner. Rich is John's.. I saw that 2nd place on day one, it would have been hard to get some sleep that night thinking how close you were before the start of day two. Top ten is fantastic, good job...

It was cold last night here and windy so will keep our fingers crossed were on our way.

Timmy, you're still not getting any love on the chubby "D"s frown I think they are possibly the best walleye lure to ever come down the pike but like anything color is real important. Last year I did well on the LGD and the LOD and the regular Dace. Never had much luck on the silver shades out here either.

Insurance Guy...have you ever used them for Lakers? I think they might work well for them. Haven't had a chance to use them, do to the fact , Most of the Finger Lakes haven't iced up enough in 3 years to get to DEEP water where the Big 'uns lurk( hehehe...I said LURK) do you get them on the King with C Darters?

Peace out Chicken Phat tired

JAY, cool CALL ME AT HOME

The lakers definitely love them but I mostly use spoons and bucktails because they sink faster. It takes a while to get the Darters down 100ft compared to a heavy buckshot spoon frown

Kyle, it will be mid January at best for main part of the KING but some guys were fishing one of the east side bays recently but that's gone now after yesterday. I agree that we need to do another trip there this winter when the ice sets up solid and we'll try fishing out of Bolton this time and bring the atv's and sleds. We all have plenty of venison to bring along again.

    • I'll be getting out again on Tuesday with the bow. It has been very hard finding time to get out this year, between work and a 4 month old at home. Last time out I spent 12 hours in the blind and saw quite a few birds during the middle of the day. Had multiple times where I thought it was going to happen but the Toms wouldn't commit 100%. Making a small adjustment this go round and hoping things come together.
    • Was thinking for hunting and maybe put a plow on it to use at my place up north. Wouldn't be my main driver. Was thinking around 15K for budget but that was before I did much looking mostly on line so far. But might step up in price for the right rig. And a lot of that would depend if I liked the newer V6 engine and 5 speed auto or 6 speed trany and less miles etc. Just by looking at dealer prices on line I would think a guy could find a pretty nice late model for around 20 or less. I think if I bought a nicer later model I would drive it more as they look like they have made the interior a lot nicer and more comfortable than the older ones. On the other hand if I ran across a real clean older one with the in line 6 and not to many miles for the right price that would be an option to. The drawback to a newer shiny one it might take a while before I ran it down the brushy trail.

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
