If I’m by myself, I usually tie on the biggest bait I can find and cast at them until they get the hint.
If I’m with my brother, I just laugh as he berates them. “Big lake, huh?” “Want me to bait your hook for you?” “Your boyfriend doesn’t mind that you went fishing without him?” Stuff like that. 😆Heinrix_54ParticipantJuly 8, 2017 at 10:43 pmPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantJuly 8, 2017 at 10:32 pmPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantApril 17, 2017 at 8:43 pmPost count: 5591

With as much as you video you need to upgrade to a cannon G20, G30 or G40. I like the G20 I have and they are a bargain now compared to when I bought mine 4 years ago. I have a rode mic and a varizoom controller using the lanc.
You would love the set up.
I would love to buy a really nice dedicated video camera, but I’m just a poor sports writer. 😀Heinrix_54ParticipantFebruary 16, 2017 at 6:22 pmPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantJanuary 5, 2017 at 1:08 amPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantJanuary 4, 2017 at 8:47 pmPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantJanuary 4, 2017 at 2:21 pmPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantJanuary 1, 2017 at 10:58 pmPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantDecember 30, 2016 at 2:16 amPost count: 5591
The attitude of different sportsmen is likely due to a combination of opportunity, difficulty, competition and desirability.
A sportsman seeking an animal that is abundant, easily acquired, unpressured and is not considered either a trophy or particularly tasty (i.e. a catfish) is more likely to be pleasant.Heinrix_54ParticipantDecember 29, 2016 at 2:47 pmPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantDecember 7, 2016 at 3:52 pmPost count: 5591

Beautiful sight. Have you looked at west okoboji? Is the entire east lake covered or just some?
All of East Lake north of The Narrows is capped. I haven’t looked anywhere else. If East Lake just capped overnight, I’m sure West O and Big Spirit are still mostly open, but smaller bays are probably capped as well.Heinrix_54ParticipantDecember 5, 2016 at 5:04 pmPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantDecember 5, 2016 at 4:06 pmPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantDecember 5, 2016 at 3:31 pmPost count: 5591

Sounds like you had a great weekend! I really enjoy the picture as well — nice close-up showing color and contrast. B)
I wouldn’t blame Mother Nature for the artificially imposed rules that we humans place on ourselves, though. The weather is what it is, merely the result of a delicate balance between the location of earth relative to the sun, the composition of our atmosphere, air and water currents, and so forth. If we want to have a “real” duck season I think we need to adapt to the whims of Mother Nature rather than expect Mother Nature to conform to our rules. 😯 Just my two cents.
Can we get Mother Nature and the Iowa DNR to sit down and agree on the best time to shoot ducks every year?Heinrix_54ParticipantDecember 1, 2016 at 11:16 pmPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantDecember 1, 2016 at 10:20 pmPost count: 5591

that seems like a pretty petty thing to not be friends with someone about. like high school drama. we cook our tenderloin many different ways. sometimes in soup chunks, somtimes stuffed.
Look, I’m not saying its a mature, or even a justifiable position. I just think they’re not enjoying that particular cut of meat the way a fella should, and in doing so, it illuminates a character flaw.
I will add that I could be entirely wrong … but I doubt it.Heinrix_54ParticipantDecember 1, 2016 at 7:56 pmPost count: 5591Heinrix_54ParticipantDecember 1, 2016 at 7:55 pmPost count: 5591
My absolute favorite books growing up were Wilson Rawls’ “Where the Red Fern Grows” and Jean Craighead George’s “My Side of the Mountain”.
Both are probably more suited for readers age 9-12. I think they might be a little bit young for any readers age 15+, but they’re still really great stories.
