There is not one pic in that video without a SMILE on someone's face. One could argue about Hatlestad's photo but I think that counts as a smile in Tom's world. wink

Thanks Darren! Nothing but high hopes for 2009!

Ya-Who Mountain Dew Baby! Nice Video Darren. I'm waiting to put the year end compilation together as well. Always fun to look back at the successes and fun times, new faces and great places of the passing year.

Here's to more memories in 2009 my friend CoolClips_wb025702.gif

Same here. I have learned SO much this year from people like Hanson and Dtro on here as well as many other knowledgeable members. Love this forum, and am looking forward to next season.

Very cool video man! I will compile one next year probably, hopefully with some 45+ lb Flatheads.

I do think one of the best parts is when Larry (LFC) was clearing the snow from the boat launch last spring grin

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
