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.

    • Yeah, that kinda seems like what it should do with a 60hp motor.  What's a hefty dude?  Like 3 bills?   I'm kind of surprised a 60 is the max for the boat.  My 82 alumacraft is rated for a 60, same length but my beam is probably a foot and a half less.
    • Have you tried working with the tilt a bit like having it most the way or all the way down when taking off with a heavy load, then trimming it up more once on plane?  Even though you have the right prop there are other pitches you can buy for a better hole shot.  My 17' Starcraft with a wheel and windshield is rated for 125hp but pops right up even with 4-5 people in it with a 75hp Merc on it.    You might even try the ugly bolt-on trim tail on the motor.
    • Back home in Mizzura there was a little town that had a sucker festival on the spring.     They get scaled, fileted with the skin on and then the meat is scored.  Then they are breaded and into the deep fryer.  Apparently the scoring lets the hot oil dissolve the bones and it gives deep fried sucker a distinct look.   I thought they were pretty decent.  Once you deep fry the heck out of something it just tastes like deep fry though.
    • So that is still under warranty?   Do those lights run off a photosensor and come on automatically?  Could you pull the appropriate fuse so the truck would still run and not die until you can get it to the dealer?  
    • That is a lot of boat for a 60 hp motor, esp when loaded with 700 pounds of beef...     Another possibility, since the boat is new to you, is that the foam flotation has gotten water logged over the years.      It might be interesting to take the boat on the trailer and get it weighed someplace.    Compare the result to a calculated weight for boat motor trailer gas batteries etc.      Or maybe remove a panel in the floor and see if the foam is wet.     A few hundred pounds of water (I found one account where the guy weighed the soggy foam he removed and got 525 pounds) would make a big difference.     
    • I bought my first boat last September and I have a question about weight distribution. I was warned that it's a heavy boat by the seller, he called it a tank. In a good way. It's very sturdy in big water. So that's cool, but the first time I had a third adult hop in, the boat basically turned into a barge and just plowed water. With two "hefty" adults, gear and a cooler I have no complaints. It gets up on a plane no problem and scoots along just like you'd expect it to. Adding a third, non-hefty adult and gear was too much for it though. It couldn't get up on plane and the front end just plowed water.    It has a 24v trolling motor on the bow. The two marine 12v batteries for the trolling motor are also in the front, not all the way in front, but close. A buddy said he'd try moving the batteries to the rear. So what I'm wondering is, how much weight can you put in the rear of these boats and is this a good idea? Assuming they'd even physically fit. The main battery is already in the rear.    As a comparison, I have a 17' with a 60 HP 2 stroke and my dad has a 16' with a 50 HP 4 stroke, both tillers. My dad's boat slows down a bit with all of us in it, but easily gets up on plane and operates normally. His boat is a little more on the bare bones side and his motor is a good 10 years newer, but otherwise it's basically the same setup, but smaller, and it moves all of us around very well. This makes me wonder if my boat is or should be capable of more.    I also thought of the possibility that my old 1997 2 stroke is just tired (is that a thing?), but it seems to run very well. I also took it to what I think is a good repair shop and they assured me that I have the correct prop.    Here's all the info I can think of and a few pics.   1996 Alumacraft Competitor 170 1997 Mercury 60 HP 2 Stroke (60 HP is the max HP rating) 85" Beam (or close to that, can't remember for sure)   Try moving the batteries? Save up for a new motor? Or that's just the way it's going to be? Any advice from the community would be very much appreciated!  
    • Hello from the NW Angle! Areas of slush on trails in Minnesota are refreezing overnight and are still in good condition if well-traveled.  Walleye action is getting better every day, with mornings and late evening being best.  Rippin’ raps and buckshots are enticing violent strikes; 18-22 ft of water is key. Big northern pike are hitting jiggin’ spoons and tip ups with large baits. Anglers venturing into Canada continue to find schooled Crappies and big walleye deeper into 30+ feet. A slow presentation is most effective for catching crappies.  Until next week, Sunset Lodge
    • Yesterday the exterior lights under the side mirrors, all pick up bed lights and the tailgate light would intermittently turn on and go off.  I checked to make sure all doors were shut and checked all the lighting options in the vehicle.  The light issue killed my battery and it is very slow to take a charge.  Has anyone seen something like this?  I checked on line and didn't see any mention of an issue like this.   My truck is a 2017 Ford F150 Lariat with the 3.5 ecoboost.  I called the dealership and they said they could get it in the week of April 22.  A lot of good that is going to do me when the vehicle is dead.
    • Thanks guys, looks like I need to give it a try!
    • Last summer my son caught a 30.5" walleye on a local lake. It was a hot day so we put it back pretty quickly. We decided to surprise him with a Replica. Fiber Tech out of Nisswa did an amazing job! Only took 6 weeks once I made the call. I will use them again.
