    2018 Grouse Report

    Now that the weathers had a chance to dry I’ve headed out when I can after work and I have seen birds. I can’t say if this is a peak in the cycle or not but it does seem better than last season. Has anybody else been seeing a lot of Woodcock this year? I don’t shoot them because I don’t care for the taste but I have been seeing a lot of them

    2018 Grouse Report

    Has anybody been out as of late? I brought the boat in Monday to be winterized but the weather‘s been so lousy but I see the sun wants to peek out so maybe after work I’ll take a walk in the woods The woods look like they thinned out quite a bit since the last time I was out
  4. Mine went in Monday. I usually wait till end of Oct or early Nov but this cold, windy, wet weather doesn’t look to improve soon. Anybody else give it up early?

    2018 Grouse Report

    When I was in elementary school I went to a little country school and somehow a grouse,in the fall, got inside the building. I think someone may have left the door open for the students and the bird flew in there. It ended up crashing into one of the walls and a teacher took it home probably for dinner

    Unruly nighcrawlers

    Nice, fat, very active crawlers on a lindy rig should drive the fish wild. One of my most successful methods on inland lakes is a crawler with air injected into it on a Lindy.

    2018 Grouse Report

    I snuck out after work and heard 5 flushes. Heard but still too many leaves to see anything to shoot at. But I agree that if this any indication, we’re in for a better bird season than last year

    I guess to each his own ,or her own, but I have never understood drowning out the taste of good, natural food

    My wife does the same thing when I cook fish. I won’t put tartar sauce on fish or steak sauce on steak. Sometimes I think she eats fish only to eat the tartar sauce

    When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad.

    Motor had carbon build up

    So I sent an email to Evinrude and made a phone call to an authorize Etech mechanic and evidently my chain was being yanked a bit. I just thought if anyone here has ever heard of that

    Motor had carbon build up

    I’m revisiting this thread because of a conversation I had with another fisherman. He told me that running it for 15 to 20 minutes wide-open alone should be enough to prevent carbon build up. He said prolonged use of things like ring free or carbon guard can actually dissolve any seals over time Is this true or was he just talking out of his one-just-like-silly-me?

    Smoking rock bass

    I have caught a few rock bass trolling for walleye and I’ve always wondered if they’re palatable

    Slow death rigs

    How do you determine when to use blades or just a plain hook? Or is it just a preference thing?

    Slow death rigs

    I’ve been reading more and more about these but I don’t know anyone in my circle of fishing colleagues that uses them. i’m thinking of adding them to my walleye fishing arsenal but what can people tell me about them. Do they have to be trolled behind a bottom bouncer? How fast you go with them? Can you use them in any water type? For example, could I use them in dirty water or are they just a clear water fishing technique?
