    For sure! Red ears were always one of our main targets when I used to go with my dad. I almost love those as much as crappie.

    Here’s from last Thursday afternoon. They were stacked in a channel ambushing minnows in the current.

    Nice! I've got a Jon boat set up similar for bowfishing and gigging. There a lot of fun! I like the frog chute. I've been thinking about setting up something like that as well.

    Not a monster but a fun fight on the fly rod nonetheless. Resized_20200621_115912.jpg

    Not many would call this fishing or hunting but got my catch of crawdads! (126 of them)

    and to get ready for actual fishing I picked up a new reel, Kastking Royale Legend GT.

    That's fishing in my book. Great catch. I've got a couple spots I'm planning on running some crawfish traps. They don't get very big in ohio, but they still taste good.

    Something in the water in AZ :D

    Very few runts, most were a good size. They did make for plenty of eating!

    We get some nice sized ones, but the tails are lacking. Seems like 50% of their size is the claws. Still makes for good creole recipes.

    Earn A Buck here in NJ for early season so I had to smack a doe on opening day! This juicy momma is already at the butcher. Hit her about 8am after missing an opportunity on a smaller (more tender lol) one at about 6:30 this morning. She went all of 50yds. I had a quartering away shot but she pulled her leg back as I released. Ramcat Hydroshock broadhead did its job. It cut her elbow off, broke 2 ribs, got her heart, 2 ribs on the other side, and snapped off in the far shoulder/leg. Snapped my arrow in half and destroyed the broadhead but overall I’m impressed with it.

    I had to have a double take to make sure that wasn’t Randy Savage with those shades... savage enough. Congrats on the early season stick! Good eatin’ there sir!
