Made a couple trips fishing this past week

3 posts in this topic

Was able to make a few trips this past week and get some decent fishing done. On Wed., I made a quick, couple hours trip over to Johnson's. Fishing was pretty good for no longer than I was there. I managed 3 keepers and a few shorts. My best friend made the trip up from KS on Thursday to help me pour jigs and part of the deal was I would take him fishing while he was here. So after helping me pour over 3000 jigs on Friday, we made a mad dash to catch a few saugers on Saturday morning. We only had til 10am to fish cause I had a wedding in the afternoon. We did pretty good and brought home 7 keepers for our efforts. Scott even managed his 1st ever Nebraska MA. He got a 21 1/4", 3#8oz Sauger that he is going to have mounted. We were throwing jigs tipped with plastics. I was finally able to give my NEW Wally Special jighead a good workout and man does that jig work good around rocks and in current. Now it's back to the OL' Bump&Grind, I only got about 3000 jigs to paint and another 3000 more to pour!

Wed. evening's catch

Nice. My weekend was spent doing "family" things that didn't include fishing. I appreciated the text. That is a nice, nice sauger.

Are we still on for Sherman on Thursday? What jigs can you have by then? I know this is late notice, but I would buy 1/4 and 1/2 oz of your Wally Special in white and chartreuse. 25 of each weight and 50 of each (white) (chartreuse)?

If you can't have them done by Thursday, I will just cut you a check and you can mail them sometime before my Canada trip in May?

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
