    I usually clean on the tailgate of my truck. I do have a portable fish cleaning station and if I have a lot to clean I’ll use that. I typically use an electric fillet knife. I just fillet them and put them in a freezer bag and suck the air out. I usually only clean walleye.

    My biggest was a 27″ earlier in this thread but I have since caught a 28″ on the East Fork of Des Moines.

    I’ve been fishing the East Fork north of Humboldt the last couple weeks. I was catching a few small walleyes (8-10″) and small catfish about the same size. Went out Sunday for about an hour around 8pm and caught 4 small cats and 2 walleyes. All of those were small too. I went again last night and caught 2 small cats under a pound and the gnats and the mosquitos were awful and I didn’t have any bug spray so I couldn’t stand staying real long. The water is now pretty dirty again and will be getting dirtier and higher over the next week or so.

    If you are looking to control all the broadleafs in your grass and save your grass, the 2-4-d will do the trick. The 2-4-d will kill your clover plot.

    I’ve never shot them out of my gun. Most of the people I hunt with use them. I’ve seen deer go way to far or completely lost on good shots. I stick to the Winchester partition gold or platinum tips. They seem to put the deer down quicker with more knock down power. Of course, this is only my opinion.

    I didn’t read every single post but what I’ve had the best luck with is Winchester partition gold or Winchester platium tips. I shoot an 11-87 and have been very happy with the accuracy and knock down power. I’m right on at 100 yds.

    Cabelas outfitter XL cot. I bought one 2 years ago and they are very comfortable and will fit you good. My brother is 6′ 6″ and has no problem with it not having enough room. Currently they are on sale for $100.

    If the tree is truly an Elm it will be dieing sooner than later I’d bet with the Dutch Elm disease that went through years back. If you have enough room at your place I’d build a distance far enough away that the tree won’t land on it when it falls. Elm trees can look pretty decent and within a couple years be dead. One strong wind could take it down. I know it may cost to remove it, but may save you some money in the long run.

    Thanks Asgrow. I hadn’t seen that type of Trimec before. I think I’ll be investing in some of that.

    I’m went through the same thing. I planted my yard 2 years ago and am now having some clover wanting to take over in a few spots. The first year I had that other grass popping up all over. Everytime time I went outside I’d try to go to one area and pull out as much of that ugly grass as I could. It kinda sucked but it’s definitely looking a lot better now. I just sprayed Trimec last night to wipe out the clover and other stuff, but am still pulling out some of that gass in spots.

    I’m not sure if its too late for crab grass preventer but Trimec won’t kill the other type of grass that you have popping up in spots. It will only get the broadleafs.

    I haven’t actually fished in the town Humboldt but I do know there’s a dam upstream from where the West Fork goes under HWY 169 where people fish a lot. I talked to the DNR on Sunday and he said there were still people fishing there for some walleyes. He didn’t say if anything was biting or not. As Old Bear said, U can go upstream from that 4 miles or so to the town of Rutland to the dam there. I fish the East Fork and it’s fairly high so I’m guessing the West will probably be moving pretty quick too.

    Congrats! I went out Tuesday while it was snowing and shot my first limit in my life (with my mutt lab/border collie cross). She’s really caught on this year. She locked up twice on birds which she’s never done before. I’ve had days where I gotten 2 but never got 3. I also missed a few too. I was pretty stoked so I can’t imagine shooting a triple. Well done!

    As of the last time I was out and saw our food plot of turnips, it hadn’t been touched much yet either. They hit the greens decently in October but they haven’t went for the actual turnip yet. I think besides the little cold snap we had in November, the weather hasn’t been bad enough for them long enough to go after the turnips yet. I say they’ll get to them whenever the weather turns and other food is scarce.
