Gary_Gray:: that big screen, it's what I need, just so I can see

Chairman: I know that feeling!

Gary_Gray:: Saginaw, Mobridge

ffishman: so whats going on

Chairman: Saginaw is getting tough with the loss of the shad

Gary_Gray:: the only reason I said those 2, is, I have not fished the rest

Gary_Gray:: will be running a 15hp pro kicker this ye, for test

Fishnmagician: good evening GJ

Grape_Juice: HI FM

Xtra12: New Board ?

chatman:: LOL yea this new chat page is a little different

Chairman: I haven't been on in a while as you can tell !

ffishman: Gary, if you are fishing a fairly clear water lake, in June, in depths of around 12 to 18 feet, do you think you would be better off finding walleyes in an inside turn or an outside turn?

Gary_Gray:: no, not this yr, but I will in 2005. I have run it before, and it is nice

mr.Biggs: it's great easy and fast

Fishnmagician: someday is finely here LOL

Gary_Gray:: what do you mean by inside or outside turn

ffishman: inside, a inverted U an outside the other side of it

Chairman: bottom fish or suspended?

Gary_Gray:: don't feel bad Bruce, I'm trying to function with new pc tonight also, and new chat site

ffishman: or inside, the inside of a U

ffishman: bottom fish

Gary_Gray:: outside turn, as the fish will spook less

WarrenMN: Just don't click the last icon next to ?

Chairman: I learned that already Warren ha ha... thanks.

Chairman: where did the old private thingy go?

WarrenMN: Double click on the name

WarrenMN: on the right in the box

Grape_Juice > Fishnmagician: trip down here was great partly sunny all the way

Gary_Gray:: this is a lot different than before

Satch_MN: Gary, at what temp or time do sheepshead spawn and get big enough for walleye to feed on?

ffishman: Do you ever use live bait

WarrenMN: good thing they got rid of the sound effects

chatman:: yea i made scott axe the sounds crap lol

WarrenMN: LOL

WarrenMN: That is you Perch?

chatman:: sure is

WarrenMN: get my email

Gary_Gray:: they spawn usually in mid-june, and are big enough for forage around 1st week of kuly through nov

chatman:: gotta use chatman: to have admin rights

chatman:: no email latley

Gary_Gray:: temp 72-75

Gary_Gray:: sure, some tournaments are strickly live bait

Gary_Gray:: have I missed anyone

ffishman: what do you prefer, crawlers or minnows

Gary_Gray:: depends on the time of the year.

Chairman: Were there any suspended fish at bull shoals Gary or just on points like most reservoirs?

ffishman: june

Gary_Gray:: Bruce, I did not make the Bull shoals event

Satch_MN: Gary, do where do sheepshead spawn? Reason for these questions is where I fish alot they feed on sheepshead alot. I just want to get some pattern.

jaubreaker: getting back to that pro kicker, did you use one this year?

Gary_Gray:: by june, crawlers come into play. I judge it, by when bait is available naturally, that is when fish start to feed on that particular food source

ffishman: Thank you, very good point

Gary_Gray:: Sheephead, unlike other fish that puddle to spawn, they spawn in open water suspended

Gary_Gray:: they gather in large schools, and spawn

Chairman: just a big orgy eh gary....

Gary_Gray:: you bet

Ristorapper: yep

WarrenMN: Whats your opinion on scents

Gary_Gray:: I have caught many walleyes on Bago, trolling with Off Shore Boards, putting my baits, just under the spawning sheephead

chatman:: hi Dan

Gary_Gray:: I have not been a big user of scents, not to say they don't work, just haven't used them alot

Ristorapper: pitching jigs vs vertical jigging with minnows; do you hook minnow the same on jig

Dan(MI): Hello all

Chairman: Going to the NPAA meeting Gary?

Eyebanger(Oh): GJ ? You in S>C>?

Grape_Juice: Yes I am EB

Gary_Gray:: yes, through mouth, and back up though top of head

Ristorapper: gottcha

Gary_Gray:: I will be there, it will just be touch and go with Dana due

Chairman: I will be in on the 6th.

WarrenMN: Do you use one style jig or do you use different
eyelet angles

Gary_Gray:: I will be at home, only 15 miles away

Chairman: I have hooked minnows through the head and out the bottom, they seem to stay on the jig better

Gary_Gray:: I use strickly one kind, ball jig

WarrenMN: Oh, whats the difference in the pro kicker and a regular 15

Ristorapper: I've heard that works better pitching they stay on longer Bruce

WarrenMN: sorry for jumping around

Chairman: I will have a few prototype night lights at the NPAA meeting.

Gary_Gray:: the Pro kicker, has power trimm, has a self righting straps, and has elec start. it is also lighter by 18lbs

WarrenMN: Is it geared any different

Billy(MB): hello all

Ristorapper: Hi Billy
