Is it just me?

3 posts in this topic

Is it just me or are Mississippi smallies really heafty for their size. I fish up in Canada all the time and those fish arent half as fat as these are. Earlier in the summer i caught my first 20"er up in canada and it weighed 4.5 lbs. Then just last saturday on the miss. our boat pulled in a 20.25"er that weighed 6 lbs. Why are they like this?

They are definetely more plump in the Brainerd area.... but there are a whole lot less of them up there too. Density dependent competition may have somethig to do with it. For the most part river smallies willl be just the opposite. Much lighter than lake fish. Each environment is unique, forage availability obviously determines relative weight (plumpness), as does time of year and relative temperatures. Sounds like a nice fish though.... Pics??

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.
