Today's Outing

bad2a-1.jpg

Fished with Bruce Ristow for 2.5 hours today. We got a late start. On water about 9:45AM

the sun was up and the skies were robbins egg blue. It got down to 21 degrees here last night.

Bruce had be talking about a stream in Southwestern Vernon county that had some privately made lunker bunker structures. They were 25 years old.

Bruce had been raving about this water for a while so we hit it today. I generally don't like lunker structures. They feel too artificial and there is no real reading of water involved.

The trout were hard to come by. Bruce had 2 to hand. About a 14er and 16er. I landed three. About a 17er/14er/10er.

In the middle of our journey there was a massive beaver dam. This appeared to stop any type of up/down stream movement on the water.

The photo above is where there was no lunker structure.

My experience today with lunker structure just solidifies my dislike for it.

Beautiful picture, it looks like there will be some difficult casting in there during summer wink Did you fish above the beaver [PoorWordUsage]? I thought recall reading something of yours about large fish near beaver dams.

Anyone else think that it's a little crazy that the word for a beaver's home, even when spelled correctly, is censored? Apparantly a blockage of water is poor word usage. wink

there are two spellings of the word, one is slang, and the other is home to beavers wink. so the slang spelling should be censored, but the other should not be.

nice photo, now I want to go trout fishing.

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
      Considering the psychedelics are the most harmless group of drugs out there then by all means go for it. This is exactly what I mean when talking about legalization, public opinion in this country is so far away from the actual science it is kind of scary. Heck when prohibition was rocking pot was 100% legal here, just think about that for a second. There is almost no rhyme or reason to many of our laws you are a shining example of that.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
