    Golden seal is pretty common.. I’ve never fooled much with it.. Haven’t even followed the prices over the years. Wasn’t too valuable when I started 40 years ago – so .. There is definitely some sang in Henry/Des Moines County. Tips? North-facing slope, best to start.. no cows.. for a long time. Finding that first plant is key.. 😉 Good luck.

    Dare I disagree? Acres of golden rod, but golden seal???? Not so much.

    For awhile you would come on here and there was at least one thread that had some arguing and name calling going on. I haven’t seen that in a while. Did those few trolls finally get the hint and leave? I find it refreshing now to come here and debate, share info, and simply discuss things. Hopefully it continues to stay that way….keep it up fellow members!!!!

    I don’t know where they crawled under a rock, but I’m glad they’re gone.

    I am no expert in snakes what so ever but I heard there is a rattle snake out there across from the dock on the other side. My brother told me him and his buddies went out and they were on the rocks and they kept hearing a rattle kind of sound. One of my brothers buddies looked down and he jumped back and said screw this place I’m packing and moving. He said it was like in tan color with a little of black. Again I don’t know if we have any here but is this true? I just wanted to let all you fishermen know to please be careful. Brother also told me the rattle got louder as they were closer to it. Just giving everyone a heads up to be careful at Moffitt. Tight lines everyone.

    Just curious, where is Moffitt?

    So my father in law wants me to smoke a couple pork loins this Saturday for the Packers Playoff game. Problem is i have 2 charcoal smokers I have a brinkman cylinder style and a side box style smoker I don’t think I can keep enough heat in either one. I think the temperature is supposed to be around 10 degrees Saturday. I tell my father in law this and he says “figure it out I want a smoked loin” So I’m taking this as a challenge. Anybody have any suggestions on how I can accomplish this in the cold??

    Go down to your local Heating and Plumbing shop and see if they have an empty box a water heater was shipped in. Take the box home,cut out both ends, slide the box down over the smoker, and smoke away. Need I say more? You may have to cut the box back to the correct length.

    Personally, I like skinning them in the woods, while they’re still warm. 10 times easier. Put the skinned carcass in a plastic bag.

    Maybe someone could show a picture of a find for reference. Looking forward to trying my luck this year.

    Good idea

    And,…..keep in mind, the last couple or three miles are in the pool above the dam at Steamboat Rock, requires steady paddling in that dead water.

    our fine governor Very Braindead is trying to keep the faultering ethanol investors alive since the epa gave less than glowing support to bio-fuels,remember this first,FOLLOW THE MONEY!! ethanol has always been a joke.
    know this,because the use of ethanol in gasoline has always caused extra fuel usage per tankful,they gave you a break price wise,but economically per gallon used/ per mile traveled,ethanol will not,nor ever will pencil out.

    in most vehicles after ethanol,the coin you save per tankful doesnt equate to miles lost,ie, in my own vehicles,when using e-10,I loose four miles to the gallon,but,I saved ten cents per gallon on a twenty gallon fill,so I saved two bucks.
    at twenty miles to the gallon vs sixteen miles to the gallon,I lost eighty miles from that tankful,so I used an extra four gallons,that equals twelve bucks,so I pissed away ten bucks,I didnt save squat!! I spent more!!! and I am not the only one!! but the government and the fuel companies sure love you for using extra fuel!! I cant believe the tree huggers havent figured this out,we are actually using more fuel per tankful thus polluting more per tank.

    now to your question,people are figuring this out,and for ethanol fuels to pencil out,regular non ethanol fuel must be in excess of a dollar per gallon more for to justify the offset of the extra fuel used. now look at this,if it is now forty cents more,in a twenty gallon fill,you saved eight dollars,yet you didnt save a thing on average of fuel burnt,hang on,its only going to get worse!!!

    the excuses used today are,it cost too much to deliver a small quantity,it costs more to produce non ethanol,this alone is bs!! look at the entire infrastructure it takes to produce ethanol,more trucking,more fuel burnt to plant the corn,more acres to rent,the water it takes to distill ethanol more chemicals,more electricity,on and on.

    this ties in also,with ten cent a gallon tax increase,what happened to all of the bridges that were so unsafe for our children to ride across in school buses?? Grinnell is putting in a bicycle under pass west of town,and they are putting in a brick gee whiz pos at fourth street,guess how many trucks it will take to destroy that before winter?? our government is nothing but a bunch of liars and cheaters,but in the name of the environment and climate change,we need more taxes,could go on,but I will get kicked off for telling the truth.

    You didn’t mention the fact that Uncle Sam subsidizes the ethanol industry.

    😕 I have been experimenting building crawfish traps for stocking a bait/breeding tank. I have tried pillow traps, cone traps with one and two cones and cage traps. I have found 1000’s of craw fish in big Creek and set all different traps along the riprap for 4 straight days with NOT one crawfish! while looking through the rocks it is very common to spot 3-10 craws in one area before even having to move from that one spot.
    Before everyone starts talking about baiting the traps I figure I will let you know what has been tried in the last four days of trapping ( Creek chubs, gills from bigcreek, bread and stuffing, bacon, chicken liver, wet and dry dog/cat food, hotdogs, tuna, kipper snacks, sardines, Fish food and even 3/4lbs piece of Coho Salmon from family vacation we took to the Columbia river in Oregon)
    I can get a few by hand, but rocks or very thick and they just keep heading down to where a person could not get in. In most places I see on yooutube once you move a couple rocks the craw is stopped from sand or some hard bottom and cann be cornered for catching.
    I set same traps with same bait in some creek holes and get craws and chubs with no issues, but not going to clean out all my good chub holes when I see all theses craws at the lake! From what I see they are the very same species with same bait and traps just can get one craw to wonder into the traps at the lake. ANY ADVISE WOULD BE GREAT!!! I will not stop until I figure what im doing wrong because I refuse to be beat out by some crawfish lol.

    Thanks guys I needed to vent! Headed out this second to pull 2 traps I made and 1 I bought to make sure its not my craftsmanship failing me.

    Go to your local creek. Along side this creek will be small oxbow ponds with standing water about a foot or so deep. Drag a minnow seine through that shallow oxbow and see what you come up with. Best to find a few ponds in a creek bottom that has been pastured. Keeps the high weeds under control.

    Fishing the Volga by Fayette for smallies using crawdads. Flipped across the stream under a willow tree and hooked a muskrat. Needless to say, I cut the line and wished the rat good luck.

    If in doubt, why take a chance?
