Big mistake related to fishing

Recommended Posts

With the mild winter, I started thinking about open water fishing and tackle maintenance about two months earlier than usual. It's been torture.

I hear ya Bro...

My Fishing Buddy gave me a 50 inch drift sock for Christmas... And it blew on the embers...

Then I had to make reservations for my New Moon of June campsite on Winnie because the available sites were going fast.

And tinder was put on the glowing embers...

Then I got "The Trolling Bible" as a late X-mass present...

And things lit a flame...

Then I had to reserve the dates for my 5 day Musky Hunt near Longville in August for my bachelor party...

And the open water itch has burst into full flame!

Seriously... I can tell you every day that I'm taking off and every "Fishing Trip" that I will be taking for the entirety of 2007!

I agree with Gunflint on this one, the new Cabelas Fishing Master catalog is hard enough to deal with, now this....also all the lakes I plan on hitting this year and projects on the boat I want to start....okay enough...I have to walk away now grin.gif

Oh don't get me started on "Boat Enhancements."

I'm installing a GPS finder, and moving my piece of rotten donkey S**T X-25 up to the front and Trolling motor mounting the transducer.

Then I'm also installing 3 Rod Holders...

And I'm altering my Trolling motor Battery Compartment Tray to hold 2 Batteries, so I don't have to change them out as often... THEN, I'm debating installing an on board charger.

On top of all that I'm looking to buy a new truck or SUV to tow it all with... But I'm having a rough time finding what I want in my $11,000 price range!

Last year I bought my boat and had it sitting in the yard on March 10th...

My fiance asked no questions when she saw me put on my Carhart Artic Gear and walk out the door with a six pack and my fishing rod.

    • I hung 4 tanglefoot traps this year and quit counting at 200k bugs(counted out 1/4 cup to get a baseline). Lots of days with a gallon or more caught, sometimes 2. Lots of info stating it just makes matters worse, but I disagree. Despite inviting clouds of them plant damage was minimal compared to not trapping. My cherry tree hasn't been completely defoliated since trapping began last year. Still gets hit, but not bad. Haven't noticed any real lawn damage either.  Just for easy math, if half were females I prevented over 5 million eggs from being laid. I like not using poison and bycatch was only 2-3 bumblebees over the last 2 years. If you decide to trap stay away from bag traps. They are a pain and greatly increase the number of dead stinky bugs in the trap, which acts as a repellant. https://www.amazon.com/Tanglefoot-Japanese-Beetle-Xpando-Trap/dp/B077XLPN3J/ref=sr_1_6?s=lawn-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1537568898&sr=1-6&keywords=japanese+beetle+trap&dpID=51WRxjClq%2BL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch  
    • If you have season tickets and your not going because your pitcher is not pitching.  Please PM me, I'll sit in your seats that game for yea!  🙂
    • I disagree, I was just in Houston a few weeks ago. I can tell you first hand the starting pitcher played a role in what Astros game we chose to see (Verlander)
    • LOL.  No they don't.  There are 9 people in the stadium that care about that.   People go to eat a hotdog and watch the baseball game.
    • The problem is the Wolves have no leverage now in regards to trades. If Butler wanted out why did he wait so long, that's just going to make it even harder for him to get to the teams he wants to be traded to? He really left the Wolves in a bad predicament with the timing of all of this.   They have to keep him at this point don't they? And man Thibs is as good as gone if they don't get anything in return. This quickly went to a real promising future to disaster. And that huge deal Wiggins got looks worse and worse by the day. The wolves cant build around that deal and Wiggins either.
    • I do believe it will hurt baseball in the long run, as lots of people choose which games they go to based on who the starting pitcher is. Also, I could see it backfiring on a team by depleting their bullpen, should the starter in the next game get rocked early.
    • yes...they have been there probably for longer than that so what is 6 more months?  Not something I particularly am happy about but I am not the expert so I go off their recommendations and also it is expensive and other things were coming into play so here I hang. 
    • Butler is a locker room problem and that is evident now.  We just need to hope there is a team with assets that feel they can deal with his attitude and are willing to give us decent compensation.  Then we need our knucklehead coach/gm to think about the franchise and not himself and really get whats best for the Twolves future and not this season alone!  We have a good chip to deal.  We have 2 players that will be hungry to lead this team and show the nay sayers that they can play at a high level and win!! (hopefully)
