free lures for life

Recommended Posts

b1gf1sh1

i quit smoking on the first of the year. i was up to 1 1/2 to 2 packs a day. that's between 7 and 9 bucks a day.thats a premium lure and some terminals every day. i decided instead of going to the store for smokes every day i'm going to the store for lures. it's alot more fun getting lures. my lure count was allways pretty good but now it's gonna be phenomonal. already filled up five plastic tackle trays ( left lures in boxes so far ) i had laying around empty. have i think 6 more to fill then i need to buy more trays. nothing but rapala and salmo so far, and when i get two of every color and size, with four of my favorites, i'll get others. best thing is this can work expotenially also. see smokes will get more expensive so i get to spend more on fishing stuff as they do. alotta fun. plus i've been smoking for 28 years so it's been an expense for so long i'm not even missing the money. never knew how many lures i was puffing away all that time. well have fun ice fishing all. i'm going to tie some jigs, spinner snells, bucktails, and other stuff for this year. see ya in the spring!!!

Big that is a great habit to kick. I use to smoke a pack or two in a day and that was when I was in high school. But then I started to get real bad chest pains and I knew somehow they were linked to my smoking. I quit cold turkey and notice how good things smelled. And food tasted better than I have ever remember. Congratulations, that means more days for you to fish before you go to the big lake in the sky.

Hey b1gf1sh1, congrats on no more smoking. I've cut way down and need to quit as well. That's putting your smoke money to good use. Maybe that will be a great insentive for you to not pick up the habit again. I never drink much so that's how I justify fishing habit. Go to the bar and spend a hundred bucks to drink or go have a good time fishing. Fishing always wins out. Way to go on no smoking and here's to being around many more years of fishing for it.

Congrats on the big step. When my grandpa quit smoking, he put the money he'd spend on cigs in a jar and in a couple years he was able to buy a vehicle. It adds up fast.

Congratatulations to everyone who has quit!!!!!!!!!! I quit 18+ years ago and never regreted it. This year I traveled to see my son get married in Hawaii on Jan 8 and paid for our golf membership with the extra money. Last fall my wife quit, using Chantix, now we can afford to have more fun!!!! Smoking costs too much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The best part is to live and to see your children grow old, to have children, and take your grand children fishing and watch them grow!!!!!!!!!!With all that I've had a very good life. Now to survive my two daughters and their antics. My phylosphy is ( keep the bat close and always say NO )

thanks guys, have you gone to sportsmans warehouse yet? the one i know of is at hwy 94 and woodbury drive. next to sams club. when you see the fishing section the Angels sing kinda loud, so plug your ears. eek.gif. really awsome. they never advertise so they can keep prices lower. they rely on word of mouth. ;\) tell evryone, we don't want them to go out of business.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.
