who's all going into the fiasco we all call the "trout opener" on march 1st ???

Ill be at montuak for the 1st and 2nd...i havnt been to an opener in years so this is going to be a refreshing experience for me to say the least. I will hopefully come out opening day with a full stringer of lunkers. Closest i ever came was 2 and that wasnt an opeing day. Last years catch and keep season yeilded 11 lunkers for me, hopefully this year will be better!

so who alls comin with me?:banana:

I wont be there on the opener but about the first week of turk season i will. I aint trying to brag but if you wanna tear into them let me know. Acouple of guy taught me the tricks. I dont know how many times i have been there at 9 and limited out in 15 minutes and left laughing at the folks that were still walking around with one or two fish after fishing all morning. Some of us are talking about renting a cabin first week of turkey season. Maybe we could get a group fishing trip planned.

I am so there...

10pointer and whomever else, I'll be in campsite 405 Tuesday and Wednesday night. Stop by. You'll have to tell me your lunker secrets, I have yet to land any and have been fishing way too long.

Rocko, in my book, a limit doesn't mean success. That person with one or two fish on their stringer could be me. The only time I fish for a limit is if I only have a couple hours to fish and still I'm selective on the size I will keep. If I catch and release 50 fish and only keep two, that is success. Your fishing is done in 15 minutes, mine lasts most of the day. And with the limit now 4, I'll probably only have one on the stringer in the morn.

Why does everyone have to go back to the purity of the pursuit idea? All i was saying is i would be glad to share some of the secrets guys have tought me. i never said i always catch my limit in 15 minutes and leave. I hardly ever keep a fish unless someone wants them. they taste like crap. So dont worry about jumping on me about i am putting the prey before the pursuit. Because when its fishing i do. I hate not catching anything. I fish to catch fish not to find personal clarity. Thanks for understanding.

Nope, ijust get tired of everyone trying to force that spirit of the wild crap on me. I love to hunt but its even better when i put something on the ground. i like to fish but i hate fishing all day without a bite. Not trying to be rude just being honest. What we need alot more of.No point and trying to say you hunt because you wanna get in touch with nature. If you do thats great. But whats the goal in hunting or fishing?? The harvest. Just my opinion though.

thanks chad

Have you guys watched that reality show he does on CMT or VH1 or MTV or whatever. Surviving Nugent I think is the name of it. It's hilarious.
