  1. Most fish are not that active at night and not as skittish. So gigging or bowfishing at night means that the fish may stick around longer for you to stick it or shoot it. Usually folks over time figure out the easiest way to secure something to eat. So instead of wasting a lot of time spooking fish during the day go at night and have better odds filling your boat.

    some areas it is the Adults that fill their Baskets with Bluegill and Redear.


    Hard fighting and great to eat. Winning combination in my book😀. Can be easy to over harvest big ones.

    At least they are taking action instead of sitting on their hands like our good-for-nothing congressmen and senators who can't even come to a consensus that universal background checks are at least a very small starting point in the national epidemic we are facing. 

    35 shot in Chicago this past weekend, I would hazard a guess the vast majority by handguns.  

    I think we can all agree that what this country needs is more idiots armed with handguns, right?. . . . . in order to protect ourselves from the bad guy idiots who are armed with handgums.

    What we need is more strict gun control laws like they have in DC and Chicago.... Wait a minute😌?!?

    I’m kinda glad to know I’m not the only one that gets those ads. Never had the guts to ask. I’ve never clicked, but I have paused. 😄

    I still have to winder Ness since I don't get those kinds of pop up ads 😜. Lately it has been life insurance ads for me. Wonder if they know somethimg that I don't😌.

  5. When I am purposely fishing powerboat or eggs for trout I am keeping them. What I don't like is gut hooking a trout when I am fishing worms for suckers in the Niangua amd hadn't planned on keeping any. Should listen more to Oneshot who tends to head home with trout when he sucker fishes and bring a cooler regardless. And should start using circle hooks there too.

    I was watching an offshore video and they were catching undersized mahi. Every one of thise fish was dropped into the boat, allowed to bounce all over the deck and then thrown back into the water. The whole time that guy us saying how high the mortality rate is for those short fish 😒.

    I would also contend that carpeted boat decks aren't a great catch and release surface for those fish either.

    Do they gather street view images out in the boonies now?  They didn't use to.  

    I find the street view is hit or miss most of the time in rural areas. I will use it if that function is there for the spots that I am looking to try to fish. Lately I will identify four or more likely spots using the map features mentioned then will get eyes on the three most promising ones first when I travel to thay area. If none of those don't pan out, I'll will look at the others. Usually at least one will be fishable.
