Does anybody remember this show. It was on OLN about 2 or 3 years ago. Really good show! It was about 2 guys that just wake up 1 morning, the 1 guy tells his wife,"see you in december" goes & picks up his buddy, & they just drive up & down the country with a big trailer behind, waterfowling where ever they find. It was on like every sunday aternoon, then i just disapeared.

I used to watch the show, but I got real sick and tired of watching a 1/2 hour infomercial for mud buddy motors and arctic cat atv's. I have read numerous other posts about these guys on other websites and the general opinion on these guys is that they are a couple of homers. They do not even do thier own scouting, they just drive to a new town, hire a guide, shoot ducks, and make stupid jokes all while plugging different sponsors.

It's still on, you really cannot be serious about those two goofballs! They need to get off the side of sportsman. By far the worst hunting show of TV. Ever wonder why the sponsers have almost all changed this year? Funny how they used to think Hodgeman was the only waders to wear last year, now it's Columbia. I realize sponsor change but thses guys are (Contact Us Please)! The story line of following the migration is a good one I agree. Sorry not to rant.

These clowns are a bit much for me. The first time I turned the show on there were lots of birds and good calling and shooting. Then the next time I caught the whole show and after being obnoxious and annoying while hunting, they went and got their nails done. That was too much for me. They give serious waterfowlers a bad name. mad.gif I hope their show gets cancelled

Im glad to see im not the only one who couldnt stand watching these guys hunt.

I watched a bit of 2 shows and the main guy kept trying to be funny to no avail. And they are not even good shots from what i have seen

I was wondering for you who watch the show, they were hunting on the east coast and from what it looked like they were sitting in a big white boat, with an upper captains chair also, in their camo. Was i seeing this right? Didnt seem like it would be the best way to put on a duck hunting show but who am i.

THe other episode i caught a part of was the manicure one, That turned me off for good. Just Show some hunting.

I can't stand this show either. They seem so disrespectful towards waterfowl hunting and their kill. A little gung oh for me. They don't teach you anything. JMO

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.

      Thanks guys for the informative replies. Can you also comment on the walleye limits?

      Hey Barefoot on the main lake or current areas?

      a tournament-record 10-pound, 2-ounce beauty was big fish and A record 110 boats fished this year’s tourney, held out of the marina at Fortune Bay Resort Casino. 492 walleye, another tournament record, were weighed and released at this catch-and-release event.

      My daughter is shooting my 12 gauge 870 Wingmaster really good. Im looking for a nice looking, nice shooting and dependable pump shotgun for her at a decent price. I'm not liking the newer 870 Wingmasters as much as I did when I bought mine 30 years ago. I recently saw some Weatherby PA08s. Very nice looking gun which rival the looks of old Wingmasters with walnut stock, deep checkering, fairly light for $350 new. Reviews I see from 2011-2014 have me concerned a bit about hard trigger pull and shells sometimes not ejecting. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about these Weatherby pumps? If there were issues, you would think Weatherby would have fixed them by now.

      I did this a while back.  If you have basic carpentry skills you can do it for under $200. Here's what I did.   Get 2x8 treated board.  Cut to length of back bench.  Attach a swivel seat to board then attach board to back bench using screws and glue.   Buy two sheets of 4x8 3/4" sheeting that's rated for exterior and a gallon of deck stain.  Stain said sheets.  Cut out one for floor and one for casting deck up front (i used the front bench with a little bracing in between).  Use left over 2x8 for bracing casting deck.  You will also need one 2x4 treated board for bracing of the floor.  Install casting seat up front.  Looks good and is cheap and easy.  I used cedar stain and bought cedar colored treated lumber.  If I remember correctly I cut out the middle bench.   Only problem was it added a lot of weight so had to upgrade to 15 horse.  Sold it  a couple of years later for a $100 profit.  Just an idea.  
    • Walleye #1
        Walleyes on Leech Lake found themselves spread out but actively feeding on shiners.  A Jig and shiner or a plastic and lindy rigs with shiners and leeches were the go to presentations during the course of the week.  Somedays walleyes were wanting it dragged along which is where lindy rigs worked well and other days snapping or twitching a jig and minnow was the ticket.  So being diverse in your presentations, changing up colors and cadences, and getting away from the crowds is the ticket.     West End - Fish were found on West Goose Flats, Star Point, Grand Vu Flats, Duck Point, Pine Point, Stoney, and on some of the breaklines in Traders Bay.  Depending on the day depths changed, but it seemed the best bite was in 8-14 feet of water.  Find the shiners and you found walleyes closeby!     East End/Main Lake - Main Lake Rocks are still producing a large quantity of fish in the 20-26” protected slot, with some keepers mixed in.  Annex, Submarine, Five Mile, Pelican Island, and Rogers Point all had decent bites. Fish were typically found in that 8-12ft range on this part of the lake and finding areas with sand and boulders was the key.  Portage Bay also reported a good bite up near Federal Dam.  Look for emergent cabbage in Portage, especially on those bright and sunny days where those walleyes will look to find cover.  Pitching a jig and minnow or jig and plastic for these Leech Lake Walleyes in the cabbage is fun way to catch them.     Jumbo Perch are also showing up with the walleyes, but often times will be shallower.  Found some of our best perch bites in 6-10ft of water, with some really nice jumbos mixed in.     Jason Freed Leisure Outdoor Adventures Fishing Guide Service

       Any boat restorers here in the twin cities area?  Looking to get some information and possibly a quote on a 12 foot aluminum boat. Would like benches re-done with carpeting, and possible floor work. Thanks in advance, I appreciate it!
    • HugeHogChaser
      Good evening,   i recently inherited a 12 foot aluminum boat, and I would like to re-do the interior. (Add carpet to the benches, possibly add marine grade plywood to the floor and carpet the floor as well.)   does anybody have any experience doing this, or recommend anybody that is good with this type of thing?    Trying to figure out if it's worth it to pay someone to do it, or try and figure out how to do it myself with no experience.    Anyways, thanks in advance!
