  1. I've been in this situation several times. Shad rap in underside of my middle finger while still attached to a flopping 15 pound bigmouth buffalo. Zara spook with 1 treble in my inner thigh and the other treble in the mouth of a flailing 28" northern pike in the bottom of the canoe (15 miles and 7 portages from nearest road!). Pulled those out with the rope trick. Now that my 6 year old is addicted to fishing and is starting to really sling his casts, I am sure I'll be hooked again! I have removed hooks from hands, arms, and two different butt cheeks using the rope trick. Give them a couple cold ones and have them ice down the area if possible. Then pull using the rope trick. I don't even warn them when I do it, and they don't even realize it was removed most of the time.
  2. You know, that really shows how you respect your elders. This virus is killing off what is left of our greatest generation. War heroes and veterans and our parents and grandparents who were better than all of us. The fought to protect our freedoms, went without during times of war and depression, came together as a country during those times of adversity to ensure a better America. They should be greatly respected, but you write off those deaths as meaningless. Do you think that generation would have reacted the same as our current "leadership"??? BTW, over 50% of the USA is suffering from at least 1 high risk factor--obesity, and around 30% have 2.
  3. I know if I was fishing that spillway, I would have other types of fish in mind. Lots of toothy critters in there.
  4. I don't think google images is probably the best bet for identifying fish.
  5. I would have bought both of them too! Great price for that boat.
  6. Deeper water has more pressure. Gas particles compress when exposed to high pressure. So, the gas contained within the air bladder expands as the pressure decreases as the fish is brought to the surface which expands the gas bladder. Some fish can expel the air quickly, others cannot. Salt/freshwater does not make a difference.
  7. My lowe 170 is riveted and not welded. It is a 1988 though, so the 2011 could be welded.
  8. I know some great smallmouth lakes up there. Spent a day or two fishing for big crappies, LMB, and pickerel on a state park lake too. Shoot me a PM if you want details.
  9. I fished big diamond lake way back in 2007 when I was visiting a buddy living in New Hampshire. We fished that lake for most of the day. That guy was there launching his boat when we arrived and was having trouble getting his motor started. He told us that he thought there were a few lake trout in the lake bigger than the state record! He even gave us a couple spoons to try out. He couldn't get his motor started and row trolled for at least 4 hours while we fished for brookies, lake trout and smallies. New Hampshire has some incredible fishing opportunities if you ever get the chance to fish there.
  10. I use the BG series. They run around $75-100 and are as good as I'll ever need. The tatula and ballistic are likely good comparisons though.
  11. I am fully in the Daiwa camp now. Great spinning and baitcast reels, even the ones in the 50-75 dollar range. No binding issues and flawless performance. I used one of the newer Pflueger presidents last year and wasn't all that impressed with it so I moved on to Daiwa.
  12. There's some great water at sunburst, upstream and downstream. I caught a 26" brown trout there one cold November morning a few years ago. There are some trails at Patrick bridge and Blair bridge park as well. Other than that, access is extremely limited. You could also pay a fee to access the river at River of life farm. I'd rent a canoe and float and hit the best spots. It's a finicky river, but can be spectacular when it's on and downright difficult when it's not.
