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?

    • Now this is where Donald Trump's political amateurism is showing   He doesn't know that you're not supposed to announce during the  course of a campaign how you're going to get even with those who wronged you. You are supposed to wait until you're elected first and then get your pay back like Hillary is doing    
    • So you are OK with MnSure?
    • I didn't ignore the pic, you may have missed my post stating that I have individual plugs for each wire. I assumed that type of plug was not applicable for my trailer. Apparently Shorelander has changed the connection. All the crimp plugs I have seen at automotive stores, Northern, or Ace hardware have been too large.   I appreciate the help and the offer but I'm in town near Oakdale and I'll run out there to Fleet and pick one up.   It's amazing that such a small part can be so difficult to locate. My Shorelander manual doesn't show any electrical wiring nor list any of it as a part number. 
    • Congrats Archerysniper!!  I hope I can add to this page this year...going out this afternoon for a sit
    • I grew up in Michigan which allows you to take 2 bucks per year if you buy the combo license. The catch is the second one has to have 4 or more points on one side. Also, in the last Few years or so the state has implemented areas of APR which obviously restricts the first one. It's been some time since I lived there, but I can tell you that I've never personally seen a deer that had 4+ on one side. I'm sure that is a product of the any first buck rule. 
    • Excited? Nope, just a healthy dose of common sense. Hell has no fury like a woman scorned. And like I've said before, no matter who wins, we will have our first woman president.
    • So you're more into the socialist, single payer healthcare system that Trump is proposing. Got it.
    • Isn't is hard to see from down there with your eyes closed?    
      You sound excited about the wake of victims left by the Clinton's, both sad and scary that she still has supporters.
    • Sort of like how you, and all the other Republicans and Democrats suppress 3rd party voter turnout?
