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.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
