Hmmm, the temps are suppose to drop back down after today and get back below freezing again so I'll go with May 6th.

The perch fishing this past weekend on Blackduck was something else! We saw LIMITS of really nice perch...12" and VERY thick! Those are the biggest perch that I've seen come out of there all winter.

Are the Sheepsheads as hot right now as the 12" perch? Those **** things are always tightening my line in the summer up in the Duck.

Flood the Pond, What's the biggest **** sheephead that you ever caught out there? I got a 7 pounder last year on the open water. It was a horse. I was hoping it was a great big walleye, and it turned out to be a sheephead.
12" perch out of Blackduck are nice ones! Blackduck has some very healthy fish. Don't catch them all Drake.... LOL!!! JK.

Fortunately no sheephead over the weekend, whew! Yep, those 12"ers are nice...these were so thick when looking at them you swore that they were a lot bigger until they came across the measuring board.

Need to get a scale for the fish cleaning room next...someone mentioned postal scales at the office supply store are pretty reasonable. Anyone have any comments on inexpensive scales?

Kupcho--we got into a few that probably went 6-8lbs. It took a good 15 minutes to get them in since they do the gator "death roll" and mess up the line. When the thing finally surfaced, all we could hear was "baaa baaa". We split an oar in half killing it--a little Sheepie baseball.

Tight Lines!

LOL, Yeah those sheepshead are tough fish. But just like all rough fish, they still put up a good fight.
Scales... I'm sure you could get a digital scale from L & M in Bemidiji for pretty cheap. They have digital scales that go up to 15 lbs. They are really nice for really all types of fish. Especially the crappies, perch and walleyes. I weighed a 20# carp here sunday and it broke the scale.... opps! But for crappies and smaller fish, it is nice to see a 2.5 pound crappie. Instead of guessing on a fish with a manual scale. I'm not sure about the price of these scales, but they can't be that much. I'll look at Gander Mountain here in St. Cloud and will let you know what I find.

If you do stop at Gander and have a chance to price them that would be great...thanks.

2.5 pound crappie...didn't know you got one of those! What was that about 17"? Now that's nice...going to give Upper Red a try next month and would love to get one of those!

hey fellas, yeah I will look into those scales this weekend for you drake. I was just using a 2.5 pound crappie as an example. Didn't get one of those this year. 15" was the biggest. (mouth closed tail pinched). It was a nice crappie. Didn't weigh it though.
I've been river fishing in St. Cloud the last couple of days and have had some good luck. 6lb 10oz catfish yesterday.
Sorry about the confusing with the crappie. A 2.5 pound crappie would be nice though huh?

Hey drake and everyone, I just picked up a 20lb scale for 18 dollars at gander mountain. They had 50lb scales there for 28 dollars as well.
This seems to be the price range for the scales.
Talk to you later.

      Onlineessaywritingservice.review said that not all sites could be trusted. I agree with this statement. Anyone should check the modern websites they want to use.

      There should be three components in the work: the introduction, the argumentatively proved thesis, and the conclusion. There are no strict requirements for the arrangement of the components: the thesis can go to the conclusion, but the main task of the author is to ensure the logicality and integrity of the 99 papers reviews. Do not forget when using references to other people's work to mark it with appropriate references, and do not overload paragraphs - each should be marked one complete idea or argument. Introduction This is your calling card, a chance to interest the reader: with a word or phrase, a bold quote to hook and arouse curiosity, without deviating from the main thesis. Use a rough draft, because it is easier to find an interesting "hook" for the introduction while working on the essay, and then put it in the introduction. Remember the popular saying that a worthwhile thought always comes later!   Don't "pour water"; try to use words directly related to the topic of the essay. Mistakes: Blank. Applicants commit the sin of quoting popular people, telling primitive jokes, or using headlines and facts from the media that are annoying to the review committee. Such an introduction will not arouse positive emotions. Dry facts. The task of the introduction - to arouse interest: do not hesitate to be emotional, because the restrained presentation of the facts will leave the reader indifferent. Thesis When choosing a thesis statement, it should be firmly understood that it is not a scientifically proven fact or the result of conducted experiments and observations, but the main idea of the essay, which can be expressed in a few words. To be sure you have a thesis statement, imagine: the examiner put your written work aside and, without reading it, asks you what the main idea is. The two or three sentences you will need to answer are the thesis statement, a summary of the entire essay.   The topic offered in educational institutions often has different interpretations and approaches. You are not faced with the task of finding an unambiguous solution to the question posed - remember that they want to know your personal point of view, test your ability to think logically and be intellectually savvy. It is acceptable to quote from the works of any researcher or philosopher, explaining your understanding of their hypotheses and how they reflect the thesis of the paper. Prioritize unquestioned authorities: Aristotle, Einstein, Socrates, 20th century academics - do not use recent scholars, especially media darlings. Mistakes: To be or not to be? An overly philosophical approach to the problem will lead to a loss of firm ground and turn the essay into meaningless abstract reasoning. State a concrete, not too radical opinion. Argumentation There should be several reasons determining your position on the question posed: describe each of them in detail in a separate paragraph, trying to observe the semantic sequence. Do not deviate from the topic and do not forget that if the logic of the work requires it, the thesis can be placed in the last paragraph. Play on contrasts and contradictions, denote the inconsistency of the commonplace view of the subject with the scientific one, put an obstacle that is not easy to overcome. Give priority to students who not only know how to solve a problem, but also how to discern it. Mistakes: Questionable argument. Remember that the very notion of an argument implies that it is true - you should not cite someone else's speculation as evidence. Don't repeat it twice. The same idea, in other words, expressed in a different paragraph, will give the impression that there is nothing to say. Conclusion In conclusion, you should not repeat what has already been written - briefly finish your thought, write a thesis statement if you decide to leave it for last. The conclusion should be polished and elegantly summarize the previous reasoning. A good way is to share the experience of writing this particular essay: tell what proved to be the most difficult, what ideas you had to discard during your reasoning, and which ones were a revelation to you. Mistakes: New arguments. The conclusion is to summarize all of the above, this part does not imply the appearance of additional arguments: if there are still thoughts, add an additional paragraph. It will be superfluous to describe the structure and content of your work at the end - they speak for themselves. The conclusion is intended to give the reader a sense of completeness and completeness.   Related Resources: Differences between essays and other creative works Checklist for a good essay The difference between an essay and a term paper Structure of the essay

      And here is another site that I will add to the favorites list. I'm glad I found these satirical essay topics so quickly. Perhaps now I will not have to surf the web anymore.
