You may get a hoot out of this?

I gave a presentation last night in Wahpeton ND to the Red River Sportsman's Club, a kids ice fishing clinic.

At the end I did a pop quiz kinda deal. Asking questions about what I had talked about, then gave out a lure or something cool like Millennium Lures and Bass Candy soft baits from my grab bag of fishing goodies.

I had asked about 20-30 questions but I was starting to run out of good questions.

So I asked, "Ah....What is my nick name?" I had introduced myself as Ed "Backwater Eddy" Carlson at the beginning of the evening.

One young man, about 7 or 8, jumped up waving his hand like crazy, jumping up and down just having a cow, certain he had it pegged.

Me-Me-Me-Me!!!!!!

Ok, what's my nick name?

He said "I know...It's..."Backwater Idiot".

I said, "Well...OK, That's close enough for me" I gave him his lure..the crowd went crazy laughing.

Kids...ya got to love um Eh!

Funny stuff- sounds like the sort of thing I would have said when I was a snot-nosed little spud.

By the way, good to see you're still posting on here, Ed. I was starting to wonder if the owls got ya the other night.

Ya, them whatever they were got closer, and closer, more of them. A heard of Hooters, and creamers, what a commotion. About 10:00 I packed it up.

Get this Scoot, until last night I had not realized I lost my favorite rod/reel combo. My Boron sumo walleye stick, the 36" custom.

OH..#$%t... frown.gif

Went back after the Sportsman's Club meeting last night and with the aid of a flashlight I spotted the reflective orange tape shinning on the rod tip.

Lucky I put it there, I think I may have missed it without it. It had fallen in the brush on the way up that hill.

Felt pretty darn happy when I located it!

Uf-Da!

I bet you would have been a crabby boy without it, eh? Glad you found it. When I lose stuff, I usually lose it for good. Either you're luckier or smarter (or both) than me.

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.
