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!

    • Good.  I was afraid you were going to tell me you were still going to vote for Trump even though he has been slipping on the poles.   P.S. We know real men like you and D2E don't do pole dancing..
    •         Yes, it's Berkeley,  I know. I find this troubling and sad. Also it's contagious,  ie C Kapernick.  As a sidebar, these college kids are going to receive the biggest wakeup call,  slap to the head when they enter the free market.   As someone commented, this is how a Trump is spawned.      Second source for the jaded fact checkers
    • So a couple days ago, I found a flat of loose shells that I had (stupidly) set in my garage last fall and forgot about. When I opened it up, I saw a bunch of rust. Dang it. Gotta love this south Texas humidity  So I went through and wiped them all down with a rag and WD40. What I found kinda surprised me. The pile on the left are perfect, no corrosion. In the middle, will still shoot but have some corrosion. On the right, are going in the garbage. The Federal Premiums (red box) had little to no corrosion for the most part. The Estates did ok, and the Kents were almost all corroded really bad.   For the second part of my test, I tore into the shells to check out the powder, wads and pellet uniformity. The wads were all different, with the Feds and Kents both having a one-piece wad and the Estates having a 2 piece wad. Powder was nice and dry in all three. However, the pellets in the Estates were absolutely abysmal. Every single one was deformed and had some kind of flaw. Slag, dimples, ovality, etc etc. See for yourself.  Kents
    • Awesome pics as usual Todd!! And cool to see a woodie in a field spread. What part of the state are you hunting? I never saw a woodie outside of the river bottoms in the MW part of the state
    • Rengel thinks he's reclaiming the nord Lord title this year, we'll see about that... We'll be there!
    • I think they are a valiant and hard working people who suffered under Communist  soviet rule for many years.  I like their sausage also.
    • He will probably sue most of us as well........
    • So what do you think about the poles?
