A huge difference is that once out of the water, they flop more than a slimer. Tough to get them to hold still for a quick pic and get the jaw spreaders on them so you can get the hook out. Could use an extra hand.


Nice! I hope to experience it first hand one of these days! Again real nice post and pics , glad you had a good trip.

After hooking up and losing my first seven fish...It was more of how much would I have paid..

It was cool how it happened. Batman had loaned me a two piece rod that wasn't quite heavy enough. After I called him and told him how I'd been losing fish, he sent Boon a text...Boon sent me a text..I sent him a text..telling him I had a flip phone. I called him and the guys met me at the boat ramp and did an Olympic relay race rod baton hand off at the ramp. They definitely wanted to get out and get fishing after the long ride. If we could have stayed, it would have been nice to have sat around and shot the shit for a while.

It was my first time ever using a bait caster for anything other than ice fishing. That was kinda cool.

Very much appreciated.

Not too much Ricky. Just the Flagstaff area, Monument Valley, and now Sedona. If I would have known that, I would have driven her down to get her cactus fix...

I cant speak highly enough about Havasupai!! However it gets more and more crowded and commercialized everytime i go The 1st time i went back in like 1998 ish... I had never even heard of the place(Even though i lived in AZ almost all my life!!) but now days I see pictures of the falls on magazines in the chechout line at king soopers!!


EDIT: Wanted to say that i was also at havasupai when they were filming the movie "Next" with Nicolas Cage and Jessica Biel... Funny thing is.. If you watch the movie they make it look like havasu Falls is just a short walk when it is really over 10 miles LMAO.
