    Game prize winner?

    Love your concern guys:

    $30 for the rod at Walmart, broke the reel, bought another reel at a pawnshop for $15 and lost about $15 worth of weights and tackle before I caught this little guy......lol

    Jugging! Old gallon milk/water/whatever jug, some line, a hook, old chicken parts that have rotted a bit for bait... canoe or boat to chase the jugs...

    turn that $60 fish into a $6000.00 fish, add a boat (Bust Out Another Thousand).

    I've been THAT route before!

    Went fishing at the mouth of the San Banard River with MY nephew and dad!

    I brought three of my seldom used and very tangled rod and reels. Got my nephew set up first (he'd never fished before); then my dad, and finally myself.

    My nephew caught TEN fish, my dad FIVE fish and by the time I got the last fishing pole ready, I caught a suntan...

    Still, the worst day fishing beats the best day at work...


  8. I go catfishing all the time, it's pretty much the only thing around here I fish for as Iowa is packed full of channel cats.

    I'm headed out to caught bank lines here in a couple minutes, there's gonna be 3 of use this morning so 15 bank poles, yesterday we caught 9 cat and one turtle the biggest being 10lbs hoping to do the same thing again today.

    Research Bank poles and cut bait, Cheap to build and I haven't found a more effective way yet.

    When my son wanted me to go fishing with him to a Father-Son camp-out, I bought a Duck Dynasty branded cammo cheapie setup on clearance at Wal-Mart. It even came with a small tackle-box (a few hooks, bobber or two, some weights, and worthless rubber worms). Less than $20, IMS.

    Caught (and released) several fish.

    It's up in the attic now, but I'd be glad to sell it to you for $60. Apparently you're a sucker. :rofl:

    Peace favor your sword,

    I got an old Pocket Fisherman lying around somewhere I can sell him at collectors prices.

  11. Reminds me of one trip. Guy standing on the bank of a lake fishing. Had several Hundred Dollars of fishing gear with him... I watched for a couple of minutes..... then this stick started to move on the bank, he drops the $$$$ pole and grabs the stick.... at he end of the line was a BASS about 9 pounds.

    Throw lines.

    Leave out the poles - tie off to a tree limb growing on the bank.

  13. In Iowa you can't run limb lines that over hang the water at all. I like to run my bait suspended about 12 inches into the water that way I can run live to cut bluegill without snags.

  19. Not really, of the 99 counties here in Iowa I believe the bottom 21 are the only ones that can use rifle for deer hunting.

    Gun laws aren't horrible but they could be a lot better here, same with fishing.
