    Just To Go

    Minnesota is a wonderful state, if it wasn't for those hellacous Winters I'd move there in a heartbeat.

    One of my other favorites is: "I could have fished all week for what we spent to do THIS for one hour".

    Good Reel to a Good Home

    I really dig pong and badminton. Could probably get into tennis also.....but I'm afraid I'd feel like a fag. (Can we still say that, or is that one of those words we're not supposed to use anymore? It's so hard to keep up these days)

    Good Reel to a Good Home

    It's like riding a bike, you never lose it. Grew up with a pong table and bumper pool table in our basement, but hadn't played either in 35 years. After 10 minutes I was right back in the groove.

    Managed Hunt

    I dunno, nobody feeds the ones in my neighborhood but they stay around and their numbers continue to grow. Lots of clearings and green grass with woods nearby is all they seem to be drawn to.

    Tackle HD Hellgrammite

    I'm actually talking about a bubble-gum floating lizard with a hook just barely heavy enough to pull it sub-surface. Then fished "walk the dog" fashion under the surface. (like a Fluke) Bass will absolutely not tolerate that thing in their area, and nothing is more fun than watching that pink light go out. 😊 You can even see it at night if there's a little bit of moon glow. Nobody makes floating lizards anymore. 😥

    Jet Boat Safety

    I also keep one of these in the boat for reaching over the back and easily clearing leaves/weeds/ect. without having to get out of the boat.

    Jet Boat Safety

    If you've ever been victim of a jammed impeller and wanna prevent that from ruining your day again, throw one of these in the boat. A counter-clockwise spin of the flywheel will free it up 90% of the time.....but you'll never be able to do it without the flywheel wrench.

    I need to make you one of my (yet to be patented) Grate clearing tools. 😊

    Ha! I always wait for the perfect time to say "Well, are you ready to admit how stupid this idea was yet?"

    Tackle HD Hellgrammite

    Well that's definitely the kinda bait to be selling.....one that is hot year round. The lizard I've been bugging Mitch about is truly only at its best for 2 months out of the year. That may be why nobody makes them anymore.

    Tackle HD Hellgrammite

    Was there a strategy in mind for the release date? I'd expect that Helgie to be at it's prime come late May-July. Is it a prime Winter choice? If a floating lizard ever gets developed it needs to hit the market as close to mid-April as possible. 😎

    Fishing is the only good reason I can think of to leave my yard. Bedamned if I'm traveling further than 1/4 tank of gas will take me if there isn't some kind of fishing to be done.

    Managed Hunt

    I'd have to agree. Opening it to bow hunting or air guns would be cool, but sending a bus load of hillbillies into the park with center-fire rifles is just asking for it.

    Favorite movies - 5 only

    Whew, you fellas spend alot of time staring at that box of light. It's a wonder you haven't burned your eyeballs up. 🤔

    Jet Boat Safety

    I get 8-10 jet rigs brought in every year because "the motor just locked up". The issue is almost always the result of slowing down in very shallow water which causes small bits of gravel to get stuck between the impeller and the liner, seizing things up and killing the motor, then the starter doesn't have enough torque to spin the crank and restart it. I love to see their happy faces when they learn they haven't blown a powerhead and they are back in business for less than 100 bucks. 😊

    I shoulda known you were a lefty 🙄 We've recently taken up Ping Pong around here, and the only person that kicks my butt every single game is the retarded lefty from down the road.

    Jet Boat Safety

    Kinda like learning to ride a dirt bike. You're gonna crash a few times, but it won't be severe unless you leave all of your common sense back at the truck. I'm gonna advise against running with an experienced guy much before hopping in your own boat (as Gavin suggested) because it might give you the impression that you can do stuff that you can't.....not right away anyway. When I took my first jetboat run on my own I had been a passenger in several before and thought I knew what I was capable of doing before I actually was. If I had started blowing through stuff at a more gradual pace I would have saved myself several dents, rivets, and impellers. 😊

    Whereabouts do you reside ?
  20. This video had me on the floor laughing last night, but nobody else in the house even cracked a smile. So is it funny, or am I just losing my marbles?

    A bat in the house.

    He was a good boy that would do anything you wanted him to do. He lived to please whoever he was hanging out with, never once causing a problem or being a nuisance. Orion is the polar opposite of Riverdog, he has to test your patience every day, and once he's taken you to the point of wanting to kick him in the face then he's happy and wants to be your best friend. His latest "thing" is initiating a staring contest. He will sit down in front of you and just gaze into your eyes with his ears perked up like he wants you to do something or is expecting you to do something for him......but he doesn't really need or want anything, just demands to be the center of attention. If you stare him down and ignore him long enough then he will go get something like a sock, shoe, ornament off the Christmas tree ect. and then stand there with it as if to say "Looky here! Whatcha gonna do now?". Once he has finally pushed every button and gotten you irritated enough to pop him upside the head and scream at him.....then he comes over, lays his head on your leg or will cuddle up with one of the girls as if to say "I just love this family sooo much". He's a weirdo and a jackass that lives to toy with your emotions.

    A bat in the house.

    Last seen partying at Coconut's and he knew his way around well enough that getting killed was pretty much out of the question. So I'm left to assume that someone fell in love with him and decided to steal him.

    Question about Nanofil

    That Ande stuff has been around forever, yet I've never met a single fisherman that uses it. And it's never been included in any tests/comparisons that I've ever seen.

    Oh the horrors! 😮

    Question about Nanofil

    I'm a fan of co-poly lines too. The only problem with them is if you over-stretch it the mono and flouro don't recover the same and the line goes all curly-Q and won't straighten back out. The amazing abrasion resistance makes up for that though if you're fishing around rocks/cables/and such. P-Line CX Premium is my fav.
