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.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂

      Heading up to the river in the morning trying to decide if I should fish up the river or out if wheelers.

      Sure wish we would get a strong enough east wind to pile the ice on shore. Lot of ice out there and it will take a long time if it has to all melt.
