Kyle

You should play around using the timer on your camera, along with a place to set the camera in your house, and a place where you stand.

I've done this in my boat while I'm trolling and have it all worked out where to put the camera and where to stand so that I can take a decent picture by myself. Unfortunetely I've never been able to take advantage of this knowledge.

Did you catch this one on the same lake you caught the other big one a couple of winters ago?

I was rudely awakened at 3am by my WORK PAGER - I much prefer your situation over mine.

LMITOUT - I'm a little curious: your rattle reels 'tinkle'? Doesn't that get a bit messy? smile Sorry.

Pierbridge - nothing worse than having to deal with a pout in the middle of the night when you are half asleep.

You are some genius. how do you know how big it is? read the forum policy...have you ever seen one of those hockey stick scoops? the fish is almost as long? good lord. let the guy post his awesome fish and feel good about it rather than letting your jealousy get in the way. dont sweat it kylersk. hes probably one of those guys that is 5'5" with size 7 shoes with a giant lifted pickup. you just wiggle your pinky at him and be proud of that dandy!

Primetime is right. It wasn't 29". I double checked my sticker tape measure that's in my house. The fish, from tail to head just hit the 29" mark. When I took a tape measure to it, 29" was actually 28 7/8". Sorry for the misiinformation.

Also, the big dipper ice scoop has a 30" handle, just for referance.

Big dave, yes same lake. This one was fatter than the last, the pictures are at a bad angle to see the girth. Anyways, this was my largest walleye I've caught. Some day I'll break than 30" mark and it'll end up on my wall, at least I hope. smile

Theres No way thats 29 inches lol! "29 inches" that would a be a record, the 1st 29 inch walleye under 2 pounds!!! You guys better smoke another one, if you think thats 29 inches!!

Compare the fish against the catch cover! Catch covers are at least 12" and maybe a little more with the flange. That fish looks more than double that.

Primetime- why would you doubt someones fish they caught in their own house? He was off by a bit. Especially for that bein your first post. That's kinda gutsy if you ask me.

count the hash marks on the ice scoop every two equals an inch that fish is atleast 28".

Nice catch, how long did it take you to fall back to sleep?

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
