Fishing with "ShouldBfishin"

3 posts in this topic

We went out to a spot that provided great sight fishing last week because of the depth and the water clarity and set up andys tent to get out of the wind and see the fish better.

I was disappointed to find out the water had turned pretty green in the last week and we could barely see our jigs and the fish. I even blamed andy because he had muddy boots! :P I dont understand how it would get so murky in a week! so we used our flashers and got a couple of sunfish, then nothing. after a while we tried moving, nothing. Then we tried drilling some holes outside and we did really much better getting lots of sunfish and a few crappies. we had two holes that were consistently kicking out fish and it was getting cold, so we dragged the tent over and set up between the two good holes. Andy got a good gill right away, then a pike came through. the sunfish would start to come back, then the pike would come back!

i kept trying to drop a pike lure down to it, but it would take off before I could get it down.

I tried jigging it for a while,nothing.

We couldn't get anymore inside the tent, and I told him his tent was cursed! :roll: :mrgreen:

We went back to the holes just outside the tent, and sure enough we started yanking out the panfish again! we decided to just fish outside the rest of the day and got lots of fish. it was lots of fun fishing with andy. we didn't get any big fish but we had lots of big laughs!

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
