What figures from history or fiction, living or dead, would you like to go fishing/hunting with? Why?

FISHING: Edgar Rice Burroughs - if the action was slow, he'd be fun to listen to.

CAMPING: Thomas Edison - it would be cool to see what gear he'd choose in this modern world.

Jesus is a good person to fish with...I do it all the time. I seem to be swearing less and less when I loose a brand new Rapala.

I think right now it would be fun to hook up with Al Linder or Jim Moyer. I guess if that dosn't happen...Fishhead will do!

WET NETS!

Jim Moyer is a hoot Dark30, you would have a blast fishing with Big Jim. Great guy and he knows his cats!

In the posthumous category I think Marilyn Manroe would be a good pick. Maybe Cleopatra, she had a really cool river boat I hear.

All great answers, especially fishing with Jesus. That's a no brainer!

I would have to say ice fishing with Jerry Garcia on LOTW. So when the bite is slow we can just sit in the heated shack and listen to some fine jammin'!!!

My Grandpa, I never met him but I hear he was a good fisherman. I've seen pictures with him holding pike that are probably 25 pounds. I also enjoy fishing with my dad.

Good Fishin, Matt.

I would pick my grandpa. I was to young to remember fishing with him much. I was 5 or 6 when he died but from photos and stories I know he was a wonderful man and a great fisherman too.

I know I'll probably get major sh-t for this one, but for hunting, the first thing that pops into my mind is "that D.C. sniper has a pretty good aim..." (sorry - just kidding; I don't hunt anyway).
But fishing, I love fishing... I'd take Sean Connery. I think he'd be great to hang out with, not to mention, listen to & look at!

Well, I don't hunt, but for a nice, warm, leisurely day on the lake I would take George Strait. Of course I would take George Strait on a cold day on the lake too!

Considering that you would have to spend a considerable amt of time considering things.....What if the fish weren't biting and time allowed the topic to wander a bit.

This topic does bring up some really interesting thoughts....I could list alot of people who I would love to talk with if given the chance. Sure I would love to fish with Jesus in the flesh....That would be really heavy....Talk about stage fright! I remember having a dream once when I was a kid. I was sittin in an old wooden boat fishing and drinking Budwieser with Alice Cooper....Ya I know! What if you got stuck fishing with someone you don't think you like.....Maybe your feelings would change...You never know. What about fishing with someone not famous like the little girl in another country who is starving.... or the guy who died in the belly turret of a B-17 in WWII.... or the old guy sittin on the bank fishing with a bobber and some crawlers....That list could go on and on.

A few people said "Dad" or "Grandpa" or maybe an old friend here or not. I think if you haven't fished with someone you love....Hurry up! Its ok if you your on some serious fish with some serious people ....but Its ok if their not biting and you have a little time on your hands too.

Now that alot of people think I'm goofy....I don't mind fishing with just me and my imaginary friend either..."Whats that Roy??....Of course I have a license to fish with two lines!!" hihi.gif

I hear there are a couple of wolves running around down in the park not to mention the Creature himself! (note to self) Check flashlight batteries!

    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days 
    • A gill getter jig(horizontal) and a "flipper" jig(vertical) are the first two to go on the line for sunfish.   Crappies are kinda my kryptonite, so i usually throw the box at them till something works. I am still a meat fisherman, plastics have been very productive at times however.
    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
