    Quillback Rockfish. Very good eating. Cabezon is correct. Talk about a head shake. Not sure if I have ever eaten one of these. They look very similar to Ling Cod.

    I like to smoke at low temp (100 degrees) for about 5 hours. I put chips in once the smoke reaches temp and then a couple times throughout.

    Had a Hoyt Charger in my hand today and almost bought it. Complete setup, all fuse accessories for $550 marked down from $650. Would it be worth upgrading from my 2009 Hoyt Turbohawk? Also would it be better trading it or selling it separate? The specs from Hoyt show they are almost identical except the Charger is 5fps faster. The charger in my hand felt amazing though. Those modules can be changed out right there in store cant they, since my draw length is 27in and that one was 29in? Help me make an impulse buying decision. 😆

    I think you answered your own question. You said it felt amazing in your hand. I think that the most important think when buying a bow is how it feels. They all shoot relatively close in fps so if you like the feel, shoot it, and if you like the way it shoots, buy it.

    I have an Lx-3 and an Lx-5. I love them both. The 5′ zoom range is perfect for ice fishing and for old farts who can’t see (like me) it makes it much easier to see what is going on. The Marcum’s are high power and do go though batteries pretty quick so make sure and have a spare with you charged up. I get about 8 hrs out of a fully charged battery.

    The very first buck I ever shot with a bow was from the ground while stalking. I had been hunting out of my tree stand all morning over standing corn. At about 11am I saw a nice buck on the north side of the corn go right into the middle of the corn field and lay down. The wind was directly out of the northwest and after watching him for about an hour I decided to see how close I could get to him. I got into the corn and moved very slowly allowing the wind to help mask the noise I was making. The corn rows were pretty straight so when I got within 50 yds or so I could see him laying down facing away from me. He wasn’t skittish and didn’t move much, just laying there. From the edge of the field to the buck was probably 80 yds and it took me about 45 minutes to get within 20 yds. The problem was at 20 yds I didn’t have a good angle to shoot as he was laying down facing away from me. I inched closer and finally was able to make a shot at about 12 yds. It was one of the most exciting hunts I have been on and very satisfying.

    Absolutely. I used to use my Lowrance 520C for ice fishing. You just want to make sure your locator has good target seperation. Also check to see if you have a flasher option on the locator you are using. Most of the Lowrance units have a flasher option.

    I was out Sunday from noon to 4:30pm and caught lots of eyes. Only two keeps but didn’t keep them. The common denominator for getting on fish was rocks.

    One of the nice things about the bed liner is that it somewhat sound proofs the boat also. Not near the noise when you drop something on the floor.

    I was in a boat basspro. The spot I was fishing is not accessible from shore.

    We used to use 8-10 chubs below Frazier and it was amazing how small a walleye will take a chub that size. Keep in mind this time of year they are trying to fatten up and eating a big meal expends less enegy that many small ones. We would fish the just below the ripples in a deep area and catch lots of nice eyes. An 8-10 chubs moves around quite a bit so I would keep my drag nice and light so that when a walleye would grab it they could take it down stream into the deeper portion of the hole. Give them plenty of time as they need time to get the chub lined up to swallow.
    We use chubs on the Mississippi spring and fall using a heavy bucktail jig. A 3/4 oz bucktail jig with a 6″ chub is a great bait combo.
