Real Fisherman!!

18 posts in this topic

Nice to finally be where the fisherman are real and the [PoorWordUsage] is left at the door step. Unlike the other place. Of course some of you guys that I have fished with kept this place a secret from me. I won't mention any names Doug.

Thunderman...I remember that day, was the only ice to be found. Were you one of the ones that stayed for the night bite??? That's when it happened that day. I think cnytim was there along with a few others.

Dark Cloud...Give him a little pinch to go along with that punch. You and your dad live way to close for me not to hook up with you guys at some point this winter.

Welcome aboard Kappy, I'm sort of new here myself although I know a few of the guys from years back. See you're from the Southern Tier so just make sure you represent the area as well as those two fine gentlemen do gringringrin. On second thought maybe the one fine gentleman, right AW? Sorry DC.

Mark...If I don't go Saturday I can leave my extra trap just inside the barn door. I can also leave my power auger if you want, that ice is thick up there. [PoorWordUsage] i'll even leave my little truck with both traps and the auger loaded in the back if you just want to take that. I know its hard for Dustin to get out with the new baby. Have dustin give me a call.

Pman...The only fun thing to do in the Southern Tier is fish or hunt and us boys down here learn to do that well. But I do love the Madison county lakes.

"A few years back"? - It's been a long time, I was just a wide-eyed teenager pounding perch on the north shore. grin

"Gentleman" - You must be talking about Tank because that word does not go with AW or DC. crazy

DC I remember the wide eyed teen-ager part, but according to others, not sure if it was perch you were "pounding" shocked. Yeah I was talking about Tank, figured if I didn't try to exclude you from the "two fine gentlemen" remark AW and Timmy would have been all over me.

Kappy welcome also . . .you must have a good memory if you can remember when DC had wide eyes . . .unless of course you got it mixed up when he bent over a hole. Some would say the face looks the same either way.

    • Have a friend that does this....   http://aquaculturenorthamerica.com/Finfish/fresh-water-fish/profitable-commercial-production-for-walleye-and-saugeye/    
    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
