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!

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?

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible. 
    •  Ooh landed that one in 4 minutes.     P.S. Of course you haven't yelled at me you only go after the defenseless.  We all know how bullies work.
