  1. True Pioneer and My Friend

    SO sorry to hear another great man has passed. Prayers for the family and friends.
  2. Labor Day Walleye

    Me three
  3. Limits on fish and game harvest

    MoCarp - If you knew folks were selling gamefish or deer, why did you not turn them in? The MDC sets the limits on game and fish and this State has some great angling. If a person legally wants to harvest a limit then so be it. Not sure what the point of your post is. Do you object to folks harvesting and utilizing fish and game? Are you claiming that these pics represent lawbreakers?
  4. What the heck are these?

    We call them brain balls
  5. Last 2 days walleye

    Are you slow trolling the jig and crawler or casting it? If casting are you hopping it back, dragging it, or just slow retrieving it near the bottom.
  6. From the research I've done it seems that most folks are going with braid and tying on a fluoro leader. Anyone drop shot with their baitcasters?
  7. I have always spooled the line onto the reel with it coming off the spool counterclockwise. I also close my bail by hand and start my retrieve on a tight line. Not sure what the nephew was doing although I had suggested he do the same. I grew up fishing a spinning rod and switched to a bait caster many years ago. Other than my ultralights a bassin sized spinning outfit feels funny now. Going to learn how to drop shot and figure I best get used to the spinning rod again.
  8. Another weekend of...

    Ain't nothin better than a yella dawg. Great pics Wrench. Brought back a rush of memories of my ol yella Dakota.
  9. Got a couple of spinning outfits that I obviously need to change the brand of line on. Been using them primarily when I troll, but took a nephew fishing over the weekend and he used them for casting frogs, chatterbaits, etc. What a nightmare. The poor kid had numerous bouts of severe line twist. Tried running all the line out with no lure on it to get rid of the twist and added a swivel for him, but still line twist. Pretty sure I had spooled them with 10# AbrazeX fluorocarbon. Apparently that was a poor choice on my part. What line do you wire reel experts recommend. Planning on using one of the outfits for drop shotting.
  10. Prayers for Richard

    Prayers from here
  11. 17' Paddle Jon

    Is a "paddle jon" just a jon boat in the old style long and narrow that folks used to use on the rivers like the James?
  12. dead bass

    I hate seeing dead LMB. Tourney anglers need to take care of their fish. With that said, I'd imagine that more bass die every day from being gut hooked on soft plastics like senkos and/or by being reeled in too fast after being caught in deep water than are killed by tourney anglers.
  13. Accidents

    Looks like they were about to meet head on and the boat banked hard assumably to avoid a collision and the pwc hit it. Or the boat driver decided to cut in front of the pwc to throw a bigger wave and the timing was off. Be interested to know what went on. In my opinion there are too many people that own and/or operate boats that have no real idea what they are doing.
  14. Help Trolling Crank Bait Depth

    Bandit 300s will get you deep enough. Mad Cow is a Stockton killer.
  15. 7-14-17 Report

    Used to use a tiny treble as a stinger when fishing emerald shiners for brook trout in the UP. Never used a trout worm so I am unfamiliar with the action. Just a thought.
