Story of the terminator perch

4 posts in this topic

Tues night a bud and I found a few perch for the pan, we had biked into a spot and ended up with 6 keepers. We get done fishing at about 8:15, grap our stringer of perch and head home. Back at the truck I tell him to take those fish home(cuz I caught them all grin.gif) if he wants and he's like, sure! Anyways, he must have forgot and fast forward the next morning at 9am. I'm ready for work but figure I'll take my rods out of the truck - and lo and behold there are the perch still in the bed of the truck. Thank goodness it was cool that night. I ran them back inside, downstairs to my utility sink and ran some cold water in. I thought I saw movement on one and eventually he actually flopped. I'm thinking nerves or something. Well I get home at 5:30 and that bugger is alive and well! I had a hard time catching him in that tub! I felt bad slicin him up since he was such a trooper. But anyways, 12 hours out of water and he made er - almost! wink.gif

I had 6 crappies in a bucket of snow for at least 18 hours and they spent a few hours on the ice before then, went to clean them and they were all still alive and fresh. Weird.

You have to be careful eating fish like that.

I hear the fillets of those terminator fish can survive chewing and digestion. If you're not careful you'll have an un dead fish fillet living inside you and it will want out one way or another.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

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