I used to buy boat covers from Bass Pro, Cabelas, some big name boat cover company. They would last two years and just start going to hell and they were never really water proof. I finally bought a custom made cover. It is water proof, it is travelable and it is now over 8 years old and still going strong. My boat sits out side all year round so it is exposed to ALL the elements.ahawk100ParticipantJune 21, 2017 at 2:06 pmPost count: 235
That St Croix panfish rod runs 99 dollars while that 7′ UL Shakespeare (UL = micro lite) runs 19 dollars. You can buy a nice ultra lite reel with the 80 bucks you just saved. Don’t get me wrong I have nothing again St Croix rods, I have two of them I use for worming while bass fishing. I just can’t see spending that kind of money for a crappie rod, just my opinion.ahawk100ParticipantJune 21, 2017 at 2:01 pmPost count: 235
The 7′ UL Shakespeare mentioned previously is very well priced if you ask me. I bought one and I am extremely pleased with it. Also as mentioned before change the line, change the line. I run 2 lb test on my reels crappie fishing. Sometimes I will drop to 1 lb. I throw a 1/32 and 1/64 jigs without a bobber which when I was running with 4 lb test I couldn’t get it out over 6 feet. The lighter the line the farther you will be able to cast your turn.ahawk100ParticipantJune 15, 2017 at 10:56 pmPost count: 235
Oh with the heat you better be ready to get up early. I have been on my lake of choice at 0500 4 times in the last week. Today we caught 4 quality bass in the first 45 minutes. After that the sun seems do drive me into deeper water. by 8 o’clock the bite had pretty much shut down. Or fish towards the evening.ahawk100ParticipantJune 15, 2017 at 10:51 pmPost count: 235
Well I was down there 5 weeks ago. I caught 14 bass of which 8 of them was 16 inches, 1 17 inch and rest were smaller. It was a windy and cold day which is not going to be repeated for a while. My problem was trying to stay out of the moss beds. It would be boat, open water, moss bed, open water to the shore. I would catch most of my bass between the shore and the moss bed. Who knows how the moss beds are now with the warm weather.
You might try some small frogs on the surface. I was doing my damage with wacky worms which is tough to do around moss.ahawk100ParticipantMay 15, 2017 at 10:54 pmPost count: 235
I agree with MR89, I am like WOW. You researched and got aerial pictures then asked around and found out who the owners were and that fishing was not allow. Despite all of the information after 4 moths you go out and case the place out. Oh I looked for signs, oh I threw a few lures here and there. No big deal there were no signs, no big deal there were no big fish. OMG what would have happen if you caught something decent there. Better yet what would have happen if you fell in a abandon well and had to explain you were just checking for no trespassing signs. There is no respect these days for other peoples property. I am sorry there is no excuse for this I don’t care how you cut it. It would be like everyone on this site decided to come case out your home. Give us 4 months to get aerial photos and let us talk to the neighbors. No big deal we were just poking around and if we got hurt on your property be prepared to get sued, GEEZ.ahawk100ParticipantMay 5, 2017 at 12:33 amPost count: 235ahawk100ParticipantMay 5, 2017 at 12:10 amPost count: 235ahawk100ParticipantMay 3, 2017 at 10:30 pmPost count: 235ahawk100ParticipantMay 3, 2017 at 7:40 pmPost count: 235ahawk100ParticipantMay 2, 2017 at 2:04 pmPost count: 235ahawk100ParticipantApril 10, 2017 at 6:14 pmPost count: 235
Here is a post from the Iowa Morel site…..
Rums are already making claims on nice finds here in Polk County. NOT! I’d like to be able to come on here and view accurate reports from known shroomers. By this Saturday, we should be into some greys. If the overnight temps maintain an average of 50 for 3 straight and mid 70’s during the dayahawk100ParticipantJanuary 16, 2017 at 11:01 pmPost count: 235ahawk100ParticipantNovember 9, 2016 at 3:34 pmPost count: 235ahawk100ParticipantOctober 30, 2016 at 3:14 pmPost count: 235
Day 2 on public land in CHICHAQUA area and it was just as good as yesterday. Arrived at a small area about 33 acres in size at 0725, no one around. Should have been a nice little hunt for me and the dog. About 0745 here roll in the late hunters. 5 of get out and the leader explains he was here yesterday by himself and 3 hunters came in on him. So he called his boys and they were coming in today. Tried to stay out of their way and had a pretty poor hunt. I am sure the 5 American Sportsmen had a great time on that 33 acres. Wow 33 acres with a total of 6 hunters. After I left I saw hundreds of acres in CHICHAQUA with no hunters. Can hardly wait for the nasty weather to get rid of the fair weather hunters.
