Thanks for the offer BnS. I'd love to head out to a destination at some point. The season is growing short for me this year and life coming at me hard, so I think my next real chance may be next opener.

PS - the kids played with some sunnies and crappies yesterday. We saw a few really nice bass, but we weren't set up with a rod at the time so we just watched them. Had one small pike come through and grab the sucker and kept going. It was pretty exciting even for such a small fish. He never gave me a decent shot so we just let him go on his way as well.

I would consider Bass n Spear a specialist in darkhouse spearfishing.

I don't think people should get too caught up with spelling or gramatical issues. My college roomate had a politcal science paper published in a respectable journal before graduation. He cannot spell worth a darn. Another buddy with a masters in mechanical engineering cannot write a legible note to save his life. On a standardized IQ test he scores above the 98th percentile on measures of spatial reasoning and non-verbal concept formation. The guy could fix any car problem and rebuilt carberators and a transfer case in his bedroom when we were in high school.

I like the fact that Bass N Spear is always willing to offer information to those who ask. He also does not seem to get provoked or bent out of shape by anyone's commentary. This is a character trait that I really respect. I also believe that enthusiasm and offering encouragement goes a long ways in helping people out which is what this site is all about.

i had said congratulations to bass n spear before , and i will say it again! CONGRATS!

i don't really care why he was made a moderator. i trust Rick and the others in thier decission! i wasn't aware that we had to use complete sentences, and correct spelling . aren't we are just talking as friends? i do know that to be a moderator, one has to be willing to take the time and put forth the effort to watch over a forum or forums,plus be willing to offer any help when he can. del

Glad to see you BassnSpear, you have done a good job as a member and I am looking forward seeing more info and topics from you as staff.

-----------

I also wanted to add that I have spoke with BassnSpear on many topics concern the esox family and I have faith in him and his knowledge of these beasts that we all chase after. What I like about having Bass N Spear as staff is with RK doing all the things that RK has to do and me busy with ice anglers and rentals it is hard to cover all the bases. Bass N Spear is able to help out and handle many questions. Now instead of two guys to help the Muskie/Pike forum has three! Those of you that have been around for awhile remember the old muskie/pike forum, it was boring with limited info. Look at it now. For the most part every name on this forum I consider a friend. I have even sat down in person and spoke with Lals, Cjac, mtreno, muskiemojo, and many others because if this forum. Granted we all have different views on different topics but we are all what I call the esox family and we are growing everyday. This muskie forum is now reconized across the states as a go to for Muskie info, the traffic, topics and members show that. Now the members have a top notch muskie man RK, a guy that breaths and sleeps big pike Jonny P, and Bass n spear, pike and spearing guy that is always helpful no matter is going on.

One again I am not only happy that the ENTIRE FM staff asked Bass N Spear to do this after exstensive screening I am even happier that he excepted to take this on. It is not a easy job. It takes hours of computer time and a lot of knowledge to be able to make sure things go smoothly and you musky guys don't go batty over winter. wink.gif

To all,

Jonny P is moving houses and RK is answering "hate mail" from walleye anglers after his last article in O. News. Glad you're here to help fill the void B 'n' S!

We all have our baises (I know as a Yammy owner I'll gladly rescue someone with an inferior motor grin.gif and charge them for it), but we're all after the same result, big fish, fun times & lots of both!

The more "banter" the better, I've learned a lot from sidebar email conversations, lots of good people here that are passionate and willing to share.

To quote RK......."Cheers".

Chris

Thank you for the warm welcome, I really look forward to sharing information with everyone. My goal is to help everyone become a better spear angler and fisherperson. To those who feel I am not up to the challenge, I look forward to proving you wrong.

I am here to help everyone out as much as I can. I am here to have a good time, and enjoy talking about fishing in general.

Can anyone cut and paste RK's article here? I rarely see the Outdoor News. But Rob's articles are always a great read, I'd love to see it.

    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.   
    • I hear ya. Although unlike CWD, I don't think there will be as much debate among different hunting groups about how bad the effects are and what, if anything, should be done about it.  Doesn't help the deer any, but at least it won't turn into debates/accusations/conspiracy theories that rival any political campaign. 
    • Great anything else?  Start the slaughter!  😠
    • does he need to?  Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
