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

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
