It'll still be plenty crowded on a Friday. A lot of people don't work fridays and then there are the guys that are laid off and people that are staying in the area on a fishing trip. If you want to have it a little more quiet, go on a weekday like Tues or Weds. and fish either early in the morning or stay there till dark. And yes, with less pressure, the fish will bite better and you will be able to fish more spots.

I'll be making my first run down there for the year tomorrow(wednesday), going solo since most people I fish wish have normal jobs and only can fish on weekends, hopefully I'll be able to find some fish without all the crowds around.

To get to the store take 61 south into town and turn right at Perkins. Go underneath the bridge and where the first building on your left past the Super 8.

I'll be here at 6 am.

You guys might need a larger minnow scoop to keep them customers coming back. Just a little constructive criticism.

I was down at Ike's Sunday morning and bought minnows. I don't much pay attention to how many minnows are in the scoop, I fish alone and never go through a whole scoop anyway, but I will say this:

Those were some of the liveliest and spunkiest fatheads I've had in awhile!

And they stayed that way all day!

So my two cents are, even if the scoop is smaller (I have no reason to doubt Norksy), I personally prefer quality over quantity.

Norskey - sorry you feel the way you do. When I scoop I try to get as many as I can in the scooper. My dad tells all of us to get as many as you can so we please the customers.

Give me a call and when you stop buy again I'll give you two FREE scoops. Just ask for Shawn.

Thanks for the critisim.

The two scoops I bought yesterday morning was more than fare. Minnows were lively and last all day.

Thanks. grin.gif

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
