    What's more aggravating?

    Started this topic a couple weeks ago after hooking into some toothy critter, a couple head shakes and it was starting to come up when I realized my canoe was drifting into the underwater point. As I was backing off the drag a tad and keeping tension with my right hand while paddling backwards with my left, I think the fish finally realized it was hooked, dove under the canoe, spun me around and peeled off drag into the weedline where it dislodged the crankbait. Arrrgh, it's all fine and dandy that it got off, but I just wanted to see what it was and how big. It could have been either a Pike or Muskie. My canoe is around 34 lbs, so I get taken for rides with decent sized fish, and I'm always surprised how far it moves on a hookset. Bigger fish seem to have more control of me than I of them. Last evening I hooked into a decent fish and it went deep, of course my first thought is "Let me see it." After taking me for a couple minute spin in 17ft of water she came up to greet me. Not a monster, but approaching 10 lbs......which is a nice size for a city fish.

    Time for a smoke

    Had a friend going camping this week and asked me to make up a “few” wings that could be reheated in the crock pot on Wednesday. Yesterday he dropped off a 10# bag from Costco. I laid them out on cookie sheets on paper towels so they could dry out a bit then coated them with some olive oil and lawrys. Good thing Costco doesn’t sell an 11# bag cause the smoker was full! They turned out pretty dam good. High heat for about 45 min. Rotated and flipped half way through.

    Was out fishing from the kayak and had this guy come up and check me out. He then went and buried himself in some brush as if he was trying hide from me. Taken in central MN

    What's on the grill

    Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:

    Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty.

    What the.... didn't you just get that for x-mas? A great read on pellet grills gents, call me cheap or old school but I'm still stuck on open pit and charcoal on the big rig.

    Backcountry Bluegills

    My Father-In-Law has recently gotten into ice fishing but he hasn't targeted Panfish yet through the ice. With the goal of getting him on some big Bluegills we decided to get off the beaten trail to check out a brand new lake. We loaded up our sleds, hopped on the snowmobiles and put the miles on. With no contour or lake maps we searched for hours with no sign of a Bluegill. That all changed when we stumbled on a shallow and weedy flat. As soon as we got lines in the water the quality fish started showing up! It's always fun when a new lake pans out!

    Take the no wake route. Believe me it’s faster. Done it many times.

    Where everyone go?

    Facebook is just a big pozi scheme to mine everyone's personal data and to sell it to the highest bidder and bombard you with advertising. I know this because I work in digital marketing and can make ads that follow people around on facebook. For those that still do bass fish like me and don't use facebook for anything other than making money off the weak minded it is nice to have a forum for just fishing. This one seems to be dying off but I still check back a few times a month in case I can help anyone out.

    Walleye fishing remains quite good with a nice mix of quality fish. Caught these three Saturday afternoon in just a few hours. 17", 18", 19+". Fish were caught from 10 - 19 FOW, again all near tips of points. Crawlers put more in the boat than leeches, but better have both along. Can't wait to get back.

    I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason. It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....

    My stuff looks a little better after a couple warm dry days. Hopefully keeps heading that direction. On the plus side I did pick peas, beans, and two zucchini last night.

    Where everyone go?

    Some other boards seem to be hanging on. I still think that splitting FM and HSO was a major strategic error.

    I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for. It's just not worth it. I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.

    I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. ?

    The cost of some new boats is outrageous. I've always questioned the sanity of dropping $30,000, 40,000, 50,000 on a boat when there are so many solid used boats available for a small fraction. The used boats may need a bit of work or maybe even a complete rebuild down the road but even then you'd still be ahead $20,000. These older boats fish just fine as well only down side is it might take you an extra 5-10 minutes to get to your fishing spot.

    Not speaking for anyone else but I really enjoyed the woodcocks that I’ve eaten.
