    Champ188 got a reaction from dtrs5kprs in K 9 Line?   
    Preach it, brother! Gimme Sunline Sniper fluorocarbon and BPS Excel mono, and I am set. If tournament fishing, I MIGHT change my fluorocarbon to Trilene 100% carbon because it's the most sensitive line I've ever used. But it's expensive.
    Those three are all I need.

    That's great news. Why in the world do organizers continue to hold big-bass events during the spawn? It doesn't take a biologist to figure out that when you take hundreds of fish off their spawning beds, you are hurting the fishery. It's not even an argument. One bass taken from a bed potentially kills hundreds of fry. Multiply that out and we wouldn't NEED supplemental stocking (which we aren't getting) if we would just let nature take care of itself without interrupting the spawn of the fish that at least some of us love dearly. 
    Annual spawning season tournament rant over. We now return you to normally scheduled programming.

    Same deal as current, basically. Moves them around for sure.
    Be nice if that water color holds up through April.

    That's why you NEVER catch one on your first cast. NEVER. It's my only superstition in the entire world. Oh, and always hole out on #18 when playing golf ... don't even take a 2-inch gimme. Again, hole out.
    BTW, there was a shiny new penny facing heads-up when I arrived at the golf course yesterday. I picked it up and put it in my pocket. Dang thing wasn't worth a crap. Played terrible.
    Maybe I'm more superstitious than I think. Or just O/C. Or both.

    I have learned so much from the advice and experts on this forum.... but nothing is better than this!  Thank you sir.  Will absolutely make this a part of my routine from now on because the first cast curse is not a superstition- is is a FACT

    For sure. My brother and I weren't initially looking at Rangers. Were actually looking more at Tritons more than anything else. But saw this rig and thought it was priced fairly. Which I can tell you almost NO USED BOATS ARE PRICED ACCORDINGLY IN THE CURRENT MARKET. Everyone and their brother is asking 20-30% over NADA Book prices. And just about getting it. It's crazy. But we are VERY happy with it. Very comfortable ride plus you know it's a Ranger and built to last. We aren't speed demons so to the folks that say Rangers are heavy and slow, that's fine. Going 70 with the 250 is more than enough and doubt I'll ever even push it to that. Guys might beat us to the spot but I'll catch the fish behind them. No big deal. 😁

    Great-looking boat. Welcome to the pre-Johnny Ranger family! Lots of other guys will poo-poo your boat, but ya know what? When all of that is said and done and it's time to go fishing, you have a big ol' safe and comfortable Ranger under you.  There's a lot to be said for that kind of peace of mind.

    Great to hear, Tim. Hang in there. Let's also lift some prayers for Capt. Don. I won't use his last name for privacy purposes, but those of you who know him may know that he had a health issue last week and is probably out of guiding for the month of April. Praying that God heals both Tim and Don fast and fully.

    Really nice afternoon and a great report. Congrats and thanks! Hard to beat the old species trifecta on Table Rock ... you were only a meanmouth away from the Table Rock Slam. You needed Quillback in the boat. That guy catches meanmouth like no one's business.

    Champ188 reacted to Quillback in Deanna's potato salad recipe   
    Well actually it is a dip recipe, but some of the guys at the OA One Bass thought it was potato salad.  
    Anyway, several guys asked for the recipe.
    Jalapeno pepper dip.
    Two 8 ounce packages of cream cheese
    1 cup mayo
    1 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
    One 4 ounce can chopped green chiles
    4 ounces diced Jalapeno peppers
    Mix well, put it in a pie plate, sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese
    Cover with Panko bread crumbs
    Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes until golden brown
    Get some Fritos and start dipping!
