I don't see a St Croix Premier in there. The yearly massacre begins. Only 3 and a quarter hour away from my house. But, nah. There's better times, with slightly smaller crowds. 😄

Not mine saw it in NEFGA forum. Tempting! Just to see 10-15 lb eyes swimming at your feet is worth the price of admission at least once-

That forum use to be a nice site. It had some serious fish porn, knowledgeable people, and some cool cats too. But I only check it maybe one a week now... Freekin' trolls, angsty dudes, and just plain losers ruined it... 😛 Anyhoo, I'm guessing that lake might actually not be that crowded this year because of COVID. Go for it. 😄

Just saw the post on nefga. The dude says it's 28" and estimated to be 11-12 lbs. It looks more like 27" (the mouth ins't closed on that tape pic), but the 11-12 lbs is probably right. Monster girth on that walleye. And I've always said that girth trumps length. 😄

Damb, lucky you! Spend it all. That's why Uncle Sam sent you that money. Unfortunately, some us will spend it on more necessities rather than "fun" stuff... To those of you lucky bastards who have the luxury: splurge away. Give the American people some of that money back. 😄

So i was not one of those that got $1,200, I got $350. I can't give it back, they kill me in taxes every year so I take this as a pay back from my great country.

Seems to to me like you are:

If you spend it, someone along the supply chain will pay taxes. If you save it (for now), it will also get taxed. Eventually. It just takes longer... The economy needs your money now. Do patriotic thing! All of you. 😄

That was a quick change of heart... You know you're gonna get your mittens on one of those fancy rods. 😄 But, they are too expensive for my blood.

Midnight is just barely bedtime for kids at that lake. 😄 The spawn there is a shitshow from shore and it's shitshow from the boat. Pick your poison. I did it once many years ago. Went Thursday night to avoid the crowds. Moved on to another lake further east Friday and never fished the spawn again. There are fish to be caught if you don't mind the combat fishing though. My nephew is going for his second round this season. I'll spend my money in Colorado for now.

What makes them so "elite" and pricey? I'm just curious.

Oh wait, you mean to tell me we get out there from shore just down those rocks from the road and we can catch some pigs? Sign me up. When is this happening?

The one time i did this I lost many jerk baits that the combat boat fishing folks would snag.

They are nice rods. I have only experienced the model from 10 years ago. The new ones have better guides and probably slightly better blanks too. 3.5 oz for 6'6" rod ain't too shabby. I like the action on the medium fast models. They make good jerkbait rods. I "d buy one if I didn't have the option to buy something else at a better value.
