Happy Holidays!

5 posts in this topic

Happy Holidays to all of you with best wishes for a healthy, happy, prosperous and fishing-filled New Year.

Does anyone have an interesting Christmas wish list? I don't know if this qualifies as interesting, but I am counting on getting a DVD of "The Trout Bum Diaries: Volume 1, Argentina." I'm figuring on it being great escapist fare when the winter gets really long. Of course that's not nearly as good an escape as heading off to the Bahamas, but I'll take what I can get.

Wish: Mustad R90, 4x strong nymph hooks.

Most would use these hooks for salmon. I would be using these size 10-12 badboys on some buffalo, redhorse, carp, and other 'underutilized' fish next season.

Unfortunately, my wife just told me she wasn't going to put them in my stocking this year. Looks like I'll be needing to place an order soon!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Happy Holidays as well. The first trout bums DVD is sweet!!! I've probably watched mine 20 times.

I'm actually pretty set for fly equipment, sad to say. Maybe some under armour warm gear for next springs steelhead season and a new pair of nice polarized glasses.

Yep, happy holidays, all!

I've got some replacement items on the way, some new waders and boots, and that's about it. Maybe some hooks.

The winter opener isn't too far away! smile.gif

May your dry flies float true and your backcasts miss the trees...

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
