You typically lose rods? That'd be a tough pill to swallow!

How'd that happen? Once, I can see.

Wicked 1, I would have to guess, the big gator snagged all 4 lines and pulled them down the hole. Not sure though, just a thought.

I can see that happening. Everyone huddled around the one hole and then you here splash x4 and everyone goes "DOH". Bummer bout the two lost ones but glad you were able to get two of them back.

The last two trips to Red, we,ve lost a rod each time. One, we got back. We also caught another rod that belonged to someone else. That lake does seem to eat more rods than normal. I think it's because we fish for long periods so we sleep in shifts and the sleeping guys are the ones that lose the rods.

Well just got back from the pond. Stayed up there friday thru sunday evening. Really slow fishing, end up with five crappies and about thirty walleyes. Drill about a hundred holes and moved around. Thanks to John and Kelly for all the tremedous hospitality and moving us to a different location. Good night

No Asian Pro was not being a smart...

These are two anglers that I pay close attntion to, I may learn a few things.

When they fish they mean it. The sleeper house is just a place to store gear while they drill enough holes out in the wind to sink the lake.

When this guy says he caught 30 walleye that means he only averaged .15 walleye per hole.

Slow for them. They fish hard and are good at it. No sitting in the house staring at their bobbers for them. They are drilling and moving all day long and then all night long.

Hey Kelly - the group of 8 fished hard too. We just drank harder! The quake caused us to drink more.
