    2019 maggot fish gazing and shit talking

    That big snook that I posted earlier in this thread was unhooked from the back side of the gill plate. First time Iíd ever seen that done and I thought it was entirely appropriate.
    Fish had the plug deep and because it was a big enough fish we could go in from the back and not damage the gills.
    I learned something that day.
    Maybe that wouldnít have worked in your situation, but itís something to consider at least.

    I hear ya. I have done that before. This one was aggressive. Treble was completely buried at the bottom of the gills, where both meet in a V, only the rounded tops of all 3 hooks showing. Still don't know how it happened, but it would have required bolt cutters or a scalpel, and way more time than we had. Switching to circle hooks up front and feathers on the back. I am in Ft Myers tonight, staying across from Bass Pro- gonna do some shopping tonight. I bet I never catch another one in there ever again, but better to be safe.

    The plan was to head to Leeís Ferry with a buddies jetboat for a few days. Last minute technical difficulties resulted in us having to cancel. So we fecided since we all had the time off and wanted to fish we scrambled, made new reservations, gathered up some boats and rallied.

    Its been a while since I have been on one of my favorite stretches of water, it did not disappoint.

    Great day right until the storm chased us off the river and cut our trip short.

    Nice Underoos, the Gunnison went from to skinny to float to blown in a 4 day period of which I spent in Chicago, guess I am going to have to head north to find fishable waters.

    I have made the decision to no longer use the same fishing gear when I visit my Mom (age 92 !) back in Wisconsin as I use here in Montana. Her lake has been completely overrun by almost every invasive species there is. Last fall when I helped my uncle take out his boat lift it was covered by millions of zebra mussels. Yuck.

    So I purchased an almost new 8-weight St. Croix rod here on TGR (thanks sledski) and this afternoon I rigged it up for Wisconsin bass & pike. Next time I am back there I will leave this rod at my Mom's.

    Dude. Have you ever tried fried chicken? Itís really fucking good.
    You live in the land of Publix. Start there, then branch out.

    Its the perfect fishing lunch, good hot or cold. Publix chicken doesn't suck. Next time you get to Key West hit up Dion's Quick Mart.
