I seen it and just could not understand why the "Trout fishing guide" was not out there trying to show everyone how to catch or at least snag one! Hopefully it wouldn't be to Lam! Like last night and everyone B&%$%# over one little mouse! Where were all the deadfall and other traps they could have used? frown

You know Joe knows how to catch fish. I'm thinking it just wouldn't have made very good TV if he slayed the sockeyes and they were all stuffed full of fish and not starving and fighting over a mouse lol.

That maybe it? I can't imagine the guy knowing how to fish just sitting around looking stupid like the rest of them!

Yeah, Joe's a regular hollywood now! Actually all of us big burly northwoods types think we could do that, no problem, (myself included). On our own, or with our friends would be one thing, but when I heard how it actually WAS with the other "volunteers", sound crew, cameramen, producers, sherpas, film choppers, etc, etc, and how they were running the production, it dosen't surprise me that the best hunter (penny joe) went home first. If anyone has any questions, comments, (or ribbings) about it, Joe is discussing it a bit on our web forum, please feel free. CRAIG.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
