First One!

4 posts in this topic

Got outta school early the other day, so I headed down to Medicine Lake. After about an hour of waiting I noticed that a pike around 24-25" had slid in. As I was reaching for the spear the fish turned and shot off suddenly. I was kinda disappointed that I hadn't noticed it fast enough, but I just kept waiting. About half an hour later another one, little bit smaller cruised in to look at the decoy. I kept jigging it because it seemed pretty interested and kinda followed it around. I switched hands for the jigging pole and grabbed my spear. One more circle, and the pike started in for my decoy, mouth opened real wide like it was gonna strike and I threw my spear. The water cleared and I threw my fish outside. Not the biggest fish, but it'll do for a first. 20 inches brought in to a 6 inch firetiger decoy over 13 fow.

    • Trumps pulls even in Minnesota.  But hey your vote doesn't matter here.  Not poking fun at Dave as I thought what he said was logic in that the democratic candidate would win hands down.
    • Uh oh, just saw a junco at the ranch under the feeders a couple hours ago. This is serious. First we lose the hummingbirds early, now the juncos are back. It'll be an ugly winter. Get yer wool coats everybody! Wool coats fer sale! 
    • I hear ya , I just eat a Montana elk tag for $880 . I could go back with the rifle but it would be more money and time off from home   
    • That is amazing!! I especially like the dovetails!! And the hand made flasher holder!! That has me seriously thinking... just what i need, another project before winter gets here.  Seriously, that's awesome!
    • Who said anything about victim? We have terrible representation, I am taking responsibility by trying to change it. Sure beats picking some party your parents voted for and blindly sticking with them your whole life. That isn't a poke at you Del, just the way things are.
    • I like them in Spring when the water is still cold. An original in white works well for me, usually fished on 15lb mono. This year I mostly used a Strike King blade minnow as a trailer.
    • Just ask her..... It's because you want more of the Obama policies and more.  It's because she is a woman and you want to show you are not a bigot. It's because Trump will destroy the country and probably the planet.   /sarcasm for the reading impaired...
    • You don't deserve better because they got nominated by voters who chose them instead of one of the other possibilities.  What did you do to get one of the others chosen?   If you just watched TV and went to work and were not involved in the process, then you got what you deserved, as did the rest of the country.   You are not a victim.  No mysterious cabal did this to you.   We are all responsible and that includes you.    Is that so hard to accept?
