Had a 30 pounder come out of the deep and nonchalantly follow to the boat, my knees about buckled. Haven't quite figured out how to get those bigger linesides to commit but we keep getting them to move to the fly. Im sort of following the musky adage of shut up and keep casting. Good things will happen...eventually.



Gettin outa the heat and headed to higher elevations tomorrow. :cool to the weekend

Nice basses.

That's why I don't use one ice chest for fish and beer.... That bastard drank three of 'em while he was in there.

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/Fish%2017/IMG_3837_zpssoetapsg.jpg[/IMG]

there were some carp like fish in the lakes up to about 16"

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/Fish%2017/IMG_3816_zpsryqdjrtl.jpg[/IMG]

youre not allowed to fish though

judging from their willingness to rise to and eat sunflower seeds

i bet ya could rack some numbers with the whippy sticks

stayed at a cool airbnb called the rasberry house a working farm outside of town and the owner got us all snockered on his homemade plum brandy and kirchwasser

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/Fish%2017/IMG_1192_zpspnmfbd5y.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/Fish%2017/IMG_0427_zpspoqdgq7w.jpg[/IMG]

both the the farmhouse and the bridge in town i took this from were deystroyed back in the 90's during the yugoslavian break up and ensuing war tween the bosian serbs and croats

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/Fish%2017/IMG_0430_zpspc9powzx.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/Fish%2017/IMG_3903_zpsdvgxjvnz.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/Fish%2017/IMG_3885_zpsuv27mmga.jpg[/IMG]
