 Wish I could shoot Seagulls Ed. Looking out kitchen window last time up the flocks were out of controll. Don't know how to post pics. or would. They leave small patches or corn un-cut out back for Goose hunting. Asked my son about those hooks but he said he has mostly Mustads, around 500,000 in stock.

Returned to the docks at Jamestown last spring a few hours after sundown and my vehicle was the only one in the parking lot.  Pulled my trailer to the launch and backed down the ramp.  Stepping from my vehicle I felt grateful the area was well lit by the overhead light, being it so dark and all.  Not a sound to be heard except for the creek and moan of the dock as I walked to my boat.  Unlashed my dingy from the dock cleats and as I stood and turned, at the other dock, a man dressed in insulated brown overalls standing in an old Starcraft run-about.  He was holding a kerosene lantern in one hand and,  a bow rope in the other.  Never  said a word as he tied his boat then stepped to the dock and headed up the gangplank.  I watched him walk into the parking area where the light from his lantern faded out.  Not giving it much thought I finished loading my boat when I turned and found, the Starcraft was no where around.

Mopars that night sure had me thinking and it brought back memories of an evening when I was launching just before sunset.    I had pulled in to Jamestown and was releasing my tie downs, I noticed the silhouette of a  boat on the other side of the lake, just off the point. 
 
My game plan was pulling lead core, back and forth, from the launch to the dam while keeping in 25' plus water until dark, when I switched to blade baits and jigs.   
 
There was no moon that night and after sunset it got pitch black so I fired up my lantern and continued to fish.  The night was dead still with no breeze, requiring the use of my electric motor to force a slow drift, as I continued fishing for the elusive Walleye.   My curiosity was beginning to get the best of me as the other boat, now only marked by a dull flickering light, remained in the same location.  So me being me, changed drift heading and set course to see what I could see. 
 
As I closed in, not wanting to sneak up and maybe startle somebody enjoying a night of fishing (or sumpthin else) I called out "YO DUDE how they biting"??  No answer came from the boat so I gave a few blast with my air horn and that's when the dull flickering light became blinding white, almost like a extended lightning flash.  When my eyes cleared, no light, no boat, only a very strong smell of burned kerosene.

Speaking of lanterns.................
 
A young man and an old man were fishing on the Pymy spillway . The young man started telling the old one that the night before he caught a walleye that was over 3 1/2 foot long.
The old man replied "Oh yea, well I was here 2 nights ago and I hooked something huge. After a 30 minute fight I finaly got it up and it was an old lantern and the thing was still lit."
The young man said "Your lying. I can't believe that."
Then the old man said "I'll tell you what, you knock a couple of foot off your Walleye and I'll blow out my lantern."

Mopars, no need to tell me about being a fair weather fisherman. They call me BTDT...... when they ain't mad at me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

2 of us were out friday. I lost a good one and had about a dozen bumps in 2 hours. My buddy didnt have anything going on until he switched to a similar lure as to what i was using. Did notice i had to change up my retrieve to even get bumps.

Old Dog I almost pooped my panties when you mentioned "Beno". I got one of these for a birthday present back in the sixties. Thought I'd died and went to heaven. Don't think I ever used it for fear of losing it. Ya know, the darned things are still around.

Boy I don't know Ops, that puppy has some serious hardware dangling from it, stepping on that thing might hurt.  The eyelet looks like it was made for cable, the eye cup looks like a bell and thems some real dredging hooks by golly.

This dude turned 8 on Saturday, and his friend's dad has been promising him for a few weeks that he'd have a Crappie Birthday, and he delivered big time on his promise!  
 
For a year now, he's been telling me about these slab crappies at Pymy and I was skeptical.  We finally got the invitation to join them on their boat, and we were not disappointed.  The 4 of us boxed 29 crappies in a couple hours on Saturday, all between 12-17" with the majority right in the middle.  I think we threw back 3 or 4 that were 10".  Got a handful of real nice perch too.  Really looking forward to dinner tonight!  
 
It was the first time either of us had ever been on a boat at Pymy.  I envy you guys that get to spend a lot of time on that water, seeing firsthand now the incredible fishery that it is.

I'm thinking I'm seeing some "Canadian Wigglers" and maybe a "BENO" or two.  Nice catch buddy.
