  1. Remington Rifled Slugs for my 870 pump.
  2. When I shot mine on Sunday I thought I missed it when I 1st checked. Shot with 12 gauge at 70 yards with open sights since I was hunting a thicket. Buck jumped after I shot it and ran into thicket where I couldn’t see it anymore. I figured there would be blood all over the snow. Nope, didn’t see blood when I 1st checked and was heart broken thinking I blew my shot at a big one. Upon a closer look I found hair and blood splatter on the trees behind where the deer was standing. So I knew it hit it and there was an exit but there was very little blood in the snow. Waited an hour for buddy to come track with me. Followed the tracks in the snow with very little blood. Now I was thinking I wounded it and that was worse than missing. Buck only ran 20-30 yards in thicket. Double lung shot but hardly any blood trail. Good luck and keep us posted if you find it.
  3. Hunted with the same guys I fished the Sandy Creek Shootout with. I saw over 20 deer opening day with at least 8 bucks I passed up for hopes at one of the 3 bigger ones we have on camera. Changed my spot for Sunday and it paid off. He was with 2 does and luckily only ran 20 yards. One thing I love about hunting is the memories busting balls with the guys and friendships. Love hunting and fishing with friends, a deer or a fish is a bonus.
  4. I fished I bay in a 1st responders tournament. We got most of our bass in the back of the docks on drop shot. We did get a few at the channel markers. Guys who won got most on top water. Good luck!
  5. Been busy with regular job, part time painting job, reffing hockey and Fire Dept stuff. Fished 1st responder bass event last Friday on I bay and finished 3rd but honestly my partner caught more fish than me and saved us. Might try and go out Sat morning before hockey and see if Whaler wants to tag along. Will go out of river and troll J plugs or go off shore. I will post if we have any luck.
  6. I run 2 riggers and stack each running 4 rods total. Then I run 2 dipseys. My lower rod on the rigger is always a longer lead then the upper stacked line. My thought process is I don’t want the lower line coming up and getting into stacked line. If lower line hits I also always clear the upper stacked line. Maybe this is not ideal according to some but works for me. I use Scotty releases to stack lines. Rick
  7. In my defense, I have no issues netting the fish. Keeping the fish in the net after taking the hooks out while the fish is still in the water is a different story! 1 time Bill, 1 time! Lol
  8. We had to force Bill to reel in that fish. He is a great host and likes to let his guests catch all the fish but we luckily talked him into reeling in the big boy. He deserves to have some fun after all he does for his guests. He doesn’t like coming on my boat since I make him reel in some fish. Lol
  9. Bill’s fish was around 25 and mine was around 20
  10. Went out of Sandy this afternoon. Fished 350-470. Blank screen. Picked up and headed into 150. Fished 150-90. Marked some bait and fish in 120-90. Only 1 skippy king. Had high hopes going offshore but maybe I didn’t go far enough. Rick
  11. Before I had a fish hawk I went off my dipsey rod bend and drag setting. I had a good bend and clicker on drag would click every so often. If I was going to fast the bend would be severe and drag would start clicking more . Too slow and there was not much bend in the rod. I sent my dipsey drags so it was easy to pull like by hand with a little effort.
  12. Nice job boats were scattered all over out of Braddocks
