    Bad Break

    I haven't seen this doe since I posted the vid of her on July 20 th. Yesterday she showed up & her leg looks worse than ever. She can put some weight on it but has a terrible limp. [/img] [/img] I hope someone takes her during the upcoming season. I think she will have a hard time surviving the winter.

    A Hole In One

    Looked out my bedroom window this AM & saw this doe with a hole through her tenderloins. It's archery season here & it looks like an arrow passed right through & left a gaping hole. Also looks like it was hit from the ground & not from a tree stand. The deer seems fine though & will probably survive. They are resilient creatures. Chit happens! Video is very grainy on the close up, I was shooting the vid through a window.

    Fall Carping

    Nice going! Fall can produce some great fish. The best day I ever had was in mid October when I landed 22 fish that had a total weight of 436 lbs. Winter certainly shuts down the carpin here when the lakes & rivers ice over & that's when I send all my reels out for cleaning & maintainence.

    Old Guys A It Again

    I try to rebait about every hour or so because I'm thinking the small fishes of all types will eat up the contents of the PVA mesh offerings.
  6. JiggerJim & I fished our favorite lake again yesterday. We banked 8 fish & broke the 20 lb mark again. Slow day but when you get any fish out of a lake that goes over 20 lbs, it's a good day!

    Carp, Small Mouth Buffalo, and Catfish

    Any time your arm is sore from catching fish, you had a great day!
  8. Fished with JiggerJim yesterday again in a spot we had good luck last week. Not much good luck this time . We only landed 6 fish & all were on the very small side.

    New mirror PB

    I fished with jiggerJim again yesterday. We fished a different area on the lake. We landed a total of 12 fish. One of them was my new PB for mirrors. My previous PB mirror was 17 lbs. The new PB is a little over 22 lbs & a gorgeous fish. My PB common is a 40 lb 5oz. We had two fish over 20 lbs so that new spot really paid off. Jim left at 5 PM & took the bite with him. I stayed 'till 6.30 & didn't get another hit.

    Possums Slow Day Fall Day

    One fish is always better than none & that capture is a dandy! I like the shore line pic with the rod set up.

    Lake Erie

    I have to agree with Jerome even on the smaller lakes. I have been fishing on very calm days when the bite was slow but when the wind kicked up the carp went crazy. I also think the stirring up of the bottom has a lot to do with it. looks like the rest of your day was good.

    Two Old Guys Catchin Some Fish

    Thanks to all for the kind words. We always have a fun time when we fish even if we blank. Jerome....We are fishing a state park in Luzerne county.
  14. I hooked up with jiggerJim yesterday for some carpin. I had my lines in at 5.20 AM & Jim showed up a little before 9. We didn't get any hits until noon. We ended up with a total of 19 fish & I quit at 7 so all the fish came in 7 hrs.
