The four guys fishing Red were bemoaning the things they had to do in order to get outa the house. The first says he's gotta paint the whole place when he gets home! The second say's he's stuck doing the soccer dad thing for a whole month! The third moans that he gets stuck hand tillin the whole freaking garden this year! The fourth guy just jigs away silently. The others start in on him figuring it has to be REALLY bad, he just jigs away, but finally admits it's costing him the big 0 on Honey Do's.
How can this be??? the others ask? He replys "Simple, I set the alarm for 4:30AM, when it went off I tapped her awake and asked, OK honey, fishing or sex? She said "Wear a Sweater honey".

ST,
It appears that somehow you've attained my secret recipe for obtaining permission from headquarters. Usually when I get to the house cleaning step, my wife realizes what I'm up to and sends me on my way.

JiggleStick,
It's been said that its easier to beg for forgiveness than to obtain permission in the first place. Why don't you try this one out and let us all know how it goes wink.gif

surface--
she got a dozen flowers when each of the kids were born. i'll be go ta hell if i'm gonna have any more kids just so i can go fishin'.
i'll be trying the look. we allready discussed that(it usually works).
good idea on the cleaning the house thing. i'll have the kids get started right away!
i will not beg.
she got her gift last night smile.gif
i could tell her i'm trying to change,but she would die laughing---hey....nope,better not.
can't afford to drink anyway.
none of her friends would side w/me unless they wanted her to get away for self motivated reasons. in which case i'd end up watching the little ones frown.gif .
now that kicked out of the house thing is right up my alley. the trick is to get an extra 30 bucks in my pocket before i piss her off.
maybe i could have a friend of mine beg for me???
she gets off at 3 i'll know by 4 or shortly after. take notes guys.
nibbler--- she always kicks my @$$ fishing. thats nothing new. but i allways catch one bigger, just for my self esteem. the real problem here is that i didn't pace myself very well this winter, and my just for fishing fund just went dry. now i'm trying to tap into her "not for fishing fund"
i can do this--------jigglestick-----------

I have been at the wife and fishing thing for 25 years. This works, but it takes some time to setup.

When she puts up a stink about you going fishing stay home and be a miserable SOB for a few days. Whine, mope and make sure she knows that your buddies are having a great time and and your are not, and that it's her fault. After a few episodes of that she won't want you around if you would rather be fishing. Guilt works!!!

Now days if I want to go fishing she packs the lunch. smile.gif

I always tell my younger fishing friends that once you have some grandchildren your wife won't care where you go, how often or when. They like being with the little ones that much. Then when the grandkids get big enough to take fishing Grandma will pack the lunch for sure. I have 3 so far that like to fish, all our kids do too. It helps to not have work to interfere. Stan C.

      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

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      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

      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?

      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. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It was a main lake break line that went from 18' and dropped into around 30'.  Just a sand transition into mud.   The fish we kept were loaded with small perch and crayfish.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff
