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!

    • Sorry. I see this concept is completely over everyone's head here.    
    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
