Good deal, been a member a long long time. The spam has been overwhelming lately and there are some long overdue upgrades. Good on ya for moving on up. Looking forward to the new upgrades.
Oh I pray those people will see the error of their ways and stop spamming the site. But a spam filter would be nice. Make the computer fill out the bio before anyone can post. Can computers fill in their info? Most member do not find the time to do so. OK enough! I am going high water fishing.huntersafeParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 1:45 amPost count: 363huntersafeParticipantJune 6, 2017 at 10:48 pmPost count: 363huntersafeParticipantMay 23, 2017 at 6:47 pmPost count: 363
Take your 12 inch bass and age one. Scales are used to age most fish. The scales are usually removed with the blunt edge of a knife from the upper side of the fish, just under the front edge of the dorsal fin and above the lateral line. Won’t hurt the fish. Lateral line scales can’t be used for aging because they have a tube through the center which obscures the growth rings. The scales are in a variety of ways. One of the most popular methods uses a microfiche reader. I have a mini hand held one. The scales are slightly moistened and placed on the microfiche reader. You can also place a moistened scale in a 35mm glass slide mount and project it onto a screen with a slide projector. I have a micro camera I plug into the computer. Aging fish is similar to aging a tree by counting the number of growth rings. However, the age of the fish is determined by counting the number of wide growth rings called annuli. The close ring is the winter growth time and that is the easiest for me to see. How many winters it has gone through. In excellent conditions a bass can make a foot in one year. If your 12-inch bass are three years or older. They are stunted and they do not have enough food for the numbers you have per acres of water.huntersafeParticipantMay 2, 2017 at 2:25 amPost count: 363huntersafeParticipantApril 5, 2017 at 4:54 pmPost count: 363

Im sure if happens everywhere, but there are some of the same guys coming to Greene to fish the Shell Rock and keeping little fish. Im talking 13-15″ skinny little walleyes. They are not the only ones, but have been around and seen it happen. Why doesnt the DNR slot these small rivers too?
This has been going on for years just wonder how many do not have a license.. I’ve seen the same done with bass out of river under 12″ it goes on stringer…Had a guy do this last year until I told him it had to be 12″ the bass was only 8″
Fish grow big and fat when they have lots to eat. Habit and food limits how many pounds of fish in the water. If you have skinny little fish they stock too many so they do not grow.huntersafeParticipantFebruary 27, 2017 at 1:33 amPost count: 363huntersafeParticipantJanuary 1, 2017 at 2:19 amPost count: 363

I love to make French frys but guy what the heck pot kettle or pan should I use to
Safety do this so I dot. Set the back yard on fire?
I made lots with a 6qt Dutch oven. Start with ten hot brackets and add or remove as the temp tells you ( 375 ) use a good thermometer. I usually just us plain vegetable oil. Any oil with a high smoke point is best, especially if you are new to cooking with a Dutch oven. I save my oil afterwards by straining it into a jar. I filter the oil with a coffee filter, You can reuse it a few times.
