What the heck is a "Moddy Oak"?

Recommended Posts

Cooter

Unless I'm losing my hearing or had way too many beers.....watching a little OLN and saw a Mossy Oak commercial - the one where Mr Haas is planting acorns and raising and planting oak trees. Anyway, he states something like, "When people talk about 'Moddy Oaks' growing from acorns..." Is 'Moddy' or 'Motty' some southern drawl slang or what? Its not even remotely close to 'Mossy'. Listen next time and please confirm I'm not losing it. The worthless stuff I come up with, eh? crazy.gif

I never saw the show, but I'm just guessing that was his southern drawl for "mighty oak".

Sounds reasonable to me.

Kind of like when a fellow I know said he needed some "awl". He was working on a car and the first thing I think was, why would he be needing an AWL?

Well, a couple seconds later it's like "Duh??" "Awl" was oil... with a strong drawl.

      pikeandchester, your kid is priceless!   You know that you wouldn't be going by your self much anymore-Right! 😅

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
    • plot0015
      thank you!   and thank you for the advice... i will try it out in my boat this week, and report back
