    First time out this year, boat ran great but couldn’t hook up with anything trolling. Couldn’t leave without drowning some worms... got up enough pan fish for a few meals. Fat perch was the trophy of the day . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Heading out on Hemlock tomorrow for the first fishing trip of the season. I acquired a downrigger over the winter... so we'll see how that goes. Ill likely be soliciting some advice from you trollers.

    Dehydrator Recommendation

    Damn Culver... that things a beast. Some of the smaller folks on this forum could use it as a sauna/tanning bed.

    Dehydrator Recommendation

    I bought a Nesco FD-75A for making jerky. I've made 5-6 batches so far and its worked great. Very simple and easy to use (just plug in and adjust temp). Cleaning isn't too bad either. I was afraid it would be too small, but the size is great. Made by a company in Wisconsin, although I think the fan motors come from overseas. It was just under $60 on Amazon, very happy with the purchase.

    This guy bet 25,000 on a daily double and got it right. Definitely fun to watch.

    In the past Iv considered jerky from ground venison a bit sacrilegious, but Iv been burning through my roasts to make jerky, so I ordered a “jerky cannon” from LEM. We’ll give it a try. This is a trial run to check the seasoning. And yea... I use a rubber glove because I make it super hot and wear contacts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What's Wrong with Shooting Young Bucks?

    Nothing Id consider doing, and certainly the youngest buck you could imagine for a hypothetical... but if someone wants burn an antlerless tag on it, sure.
