  6. I went to fish point for the duck and goose opener last weekend ,We got 10 geese and 13 ducks off the same feild in two days.We also hunted the refuge on a 32 out of 34 draw for the youth hunt. We stayed in the heat all day and had a good hour and a half of good duck hunting we got 8 ducks with our young man of 11 yrs getting two malard drakes.It was very hot and buggy all weekend I wish I was still there becouse the weather is going to change and it's going to be awsome!There is a lot of ducks malards,teal,pintail and woodies.Also a very good number of geese ,most of what we got where big honkers.
  7. Hey any of you other waterfowlers get out for the early goose opener? I chose to hunt instead of fish that mournig and called 5 geese in shot 2 then comback called the 3 back and shot a third.I had wing shot the second bird and by the time i got to look for it he had run into some very nasty thick crap and I looked hi and low for him but didnt find it.The other birds both had leg bands! so I looked some more for the cripple but could not find him:(
  8. I went out Sat. on the 5 d's couse my boat wasnt running.We took a young man and his father out that had won the trip in a raffle at american tackles kid fishing camp this summer. we went 3 for 6 in 100 to 110 fow.We found 52 deg. water down 90 foot and that was the first cold water we had found from 45 fow out.However we got the fish all around 65 down, blue bubble setup,white and green spinny with oceana flie , and a custom half and half JP Slammer spoon all took fish.We quit around 9:30 becouse the father got sea sick and was chuming:( all in all they seemed to have a good time I think its great that Harold is doing the fishing camp for the kids as they are the future of our sport.

  10. I like my Jp slammers and also moonshine spoons,but have used a lot of dream weavers before we had our own stuff.we hope to have better glow patterns for the 08 season.
  11. HI guys, I didnt fish Sat. mourn. I had family commitements .I did go for a couple of hours Sun. eve in the rain but didnt do well ,we where only 1 for 2 in 90 fow. The fish seem to be very scattered and there is a strange current out there .The water in 90 foot had 44 deg. at 50 down and the water in 35 had 58 deg at the bottom. So we fished out. after fishing we talked to a guy who was 3 for 4 in 60 fow. Say hi on the lake some time if im on fish i will always share info. Jimmy vb aka jimbobber:)

  14. try italian dressing on goose breast chunks wrapped in bacon then grilled yummy!!!!!!!!!
  15. I went to one of my spots yesterday at dusk and had 150 or so geese fly by headed to the night roost! Im lickin my chops !Cant wait to wack some honkers!The only thing better than a flock of geese setting up on my spread is a king rippen out my Drag!
  16. its a great tech. to run lead off boards. you do need to use a large inline board. you do need to let all of the lead out and put the boards onto the backer line. you can set up rods for 1/2 core ,full,and any variation in between,I run 3 colors and if the fish are deeper than 20 foot i add weight above my florocarbon leader.I also run full core and copper behind a board.This is a killer setup becouse it gets it away from the boat.
  17. we ran up to port sheldon,well just south of there and started around 6:15,the first hour and a half was nuts we had three doubles most came on dodgers and flies blue bubble set up,green on green e chip,green and white with oceana flie, and green on green spinny with wild fern fly . also got one on dalmation bloody nose moonshine,and killer pickle jp slammer.after the sun came up our riggers started to go with carmel dolphin , blue dolphin,and nbk all taking fish 35 to 50 down. the water was very cold 50 down was 41 deg. all this was on a north troll. we ended up with 5 kings , 2 lakers,and 2 steelies.and if anyone catches a 15 lb or so steelie with a mi. sunset jp slammer in his mouth i'd like it back! :rolleyes:he broke us off on a 3 color lead set up on a board. All in all an awsome mourning we quit at 10:00 becouse of comitements at noon but by then the fish had tapered off .
  18. cut salmon with skin into serving sizes. liberaly add these spices to flesh side. salt pepper garlic powder lawrys season salt cayean pepper(go lite with this) dried dill weed grill fish 7 to 10 min. on first side.( skin side) flip it over and cook until done about 5 to 7 min. serve with lemon wedges yummy!!
  19. we went 6-14 last night just north of holland 125 to150 fow. the water was 49 deg 75 down in 150.green and white e chip with oceana fly,blue bubble set up were the best fly setups on 240 ft. of copper and on dipsy 175-200 back. NBK,and carmel dolphin jp slammers,glow wonder bread stinger all took fish on riggers 70 down.An east west troll seemed to be the best for us. most of the action happend after the sun went down behind the horizon.We had two doubles and an almost triple! Wow that was busy with just two of us on board.we had 5 kings 1 was 15lbs the rest were smaller and one nice coho about 10 lbs.all in all a great night!
