HEY GREAT OUTDOORS!!!!

34 posts in this topic

Jim,

The Good Lord sent me a for sure sign that you are going down this winter during our "Clash of the Trout Titans". I decided to go to the garbage dump today with only 2 full cans, which is unusual for me- I usually wait until I have a full truck load. Anyways, as I was pulling out of there, I noticed a guy pulling in with a power auger in the back of his truck!!! smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif So, I asked the guy if he was going to throw it out and to my shock and amazement, he said "Yeah". I couldn't believe I was leaving there with a pretty new looking 10" Eskimo auger...I felt like I stole it from somebody. Sure enough, I get home and dump the gas out, put some new stuff in and she fires right up!!!! Absolutely nothing wrong with it at all-the blade cover even came with it! Unreal! So, my sign from above says the ol' 8" auger will not be enough for the lakers I will be posing in the Echo with this winter!!! tongue.giftongue.giftongue.gif

See, you never should have told me to start praying for fish!!!

Later,

Justin

Justin, if you're going to have a clash of the trout titans, don't you actually need to find a couple trout titans to include in the contest? grin.gif

Sounds to me like you want a chance to join the big boys club there, Steve. Or are you chicken??? Remember, the losers will be ridiculed to the point of having to sell their house and move out of town just to escape the torment. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Later,

Justin

Yes, it is a well known fact that besides good looks, unlimited charm and superb intellect; a strong sense of humor is one of the genetic traits of the Irish. grin.gif

And don't worry if you lose "The Clash of the Trout Titans," there are plenty of houses for sale in Babbitt. You wouldn't have to move far.

Justin, I don't need to join a club. Mostly, clubs are just filled with guys who do more bragging than doing. smirk.gif

Casey, you sure nailed it. Too bad for Justin he's not Irish. Now, because he's stuck being Norwegian, he has to try to join a club. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

And it sounds like it will be a club of two: A Norwegian and a Finn. Sheesh.

Though Justin is a very poor fisherman, I would rather be in a club with him, than two guys whose nationality is notorious for seeing little green men dancing in the forest with tights! (after 8 hours in a Pub) grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I can't believe you called me a Norwegian!!!! mad.gif

I guess when confronted with a fishing duel, the Irish must also be known for locking the doors, turning off the lights, closing the curtains, and cowering with fear in a dark closet!!! (and probably wafting and enjoying personal farts)!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

caseymcq,

I beg to differ with you on this one! If I saw the three of you together,(you, Steve, and Ted Kennedy) I'd think I was seeing triple! grin.gifgrin.gif

So, Justin, you're a Swede? I know Norwegians and Swedes make these fine distinctions among themselves, but nobody else in the world can tell the difference. Might as well try to distinguish individual sheep in the flock. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

All you guys are way off. If you want to see the ultimate in human creation, you need to see us Kanuks. Bred of Indian mothers and French fathers, we are the ultimate in looks, fishing skills, intellect, great athletic builds, wealth, women want us, men want to be us. When we enter a room, stunned silence overcomes everybody. I could go on but the humble nature of us French-Canadians won't allow me to

I think that the stunned silence is caused by the odor.

The odor caused by the large number of fish we know how to catch

Stf, I forget. Are you Scottish or Irish? grin.gif

If it weren't for the Norwegians and their fishing prowess you guys would still be fishing like Huck Fin.

I count many Kunucks as friends. What they forget is that the scent of a fish caught four days ago doesn't count as manly.

Oh, geez, Frank, I forgot you've got some Norwegian tucked in there behind that Italian. I'm surprised you admitted it right out here in public and all. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

As I recall, Huck and Jim caught a WHOPPER of a blue catfish. Anybody who can catch a 100-plus pound cat is a mighty fine fisherman in my book (Those guys over in the catfish forum will back me up on that!) Only problem with Huck was that he couldn't tell north from south, and I'm pretty sure he was cured of this directional deficiency by the end of the book.

And note, Frank, that Huck's last name was Finn. No doubt if his last name was Johnson or Orlavson or Stupidson, you Norwegians would be talking him WAY up instead of engaging in that longstanding Scandinavian civil war and ripping him for being a third class Scandinavian like Maki the Finn (Great Outdoors). grin.gif

Geez, I should lock this thread now so nobody can rip back at me. Of course, Frank would just unlock it, take his shot and the lock it again behind him. I'd make an Italian crack but then I'd have Valv all over my case, and that would be REALLY bad news. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Oh, Little Stevie,

Swede's are the sexiest people on earth, man. You don't ever hear someone say "Hey, It's the Norwegian Bikini team" or "There is a good looking Irishman!" Geez. Flaming red hair, green man-dresses with matching tights, and belt buckles on your shoes....need I say more???

Dude, I notice that when calling Swedes the sexiest people on earth you focus only on the women. And I'll admit that the few Swedish women I've known were worth knowing.

Can't say the same about the Swedish men, which are conspicuously absent from your bragging.

And as far as Celtic dress, only real men can wear clothes like that and make it stick. You'll never see a Swede in that outfit because there are only girly men in Sweden. Casey and I are secure in our manhood, and we know that you just don't mess with the Celts.

And, speaking of dresses on Celts, if you want to court death, just lift up a Scotsman's kilt. You'll only do it once, and it'll be good-bye Swedegirl. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Well,

I can see that we are getting nowhere here. I started this post with the hopes of rattling the Great Outdoors's cage with my garbage dump ice auger and boy, did that backfire!!!

cool.gif

Well, Justin, when you rattle someone's cage, sometimes other people feel compelled to join in the fun. It's all just in fun, after all. Just ribbin' each other. Kinda like barstool talk, and just as harmless. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.
    • Garmandu
      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
    • proguide
      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10.
