TJ, I like the first one. It reminds me of the 15 minutes of the 70's I remember.

That little white rod is taking up a life of it's own, and I'm loving it.

I was never a stoner, but TJ's first photo certainly was pretty. It would make a good computer screen saver.

Shorty's fish are beautiful too! But, the enhanced photo is better.

I actually think it probably portrays the fish closer to what our eyes really see on a very live wet fish.

I was sent to a US Navy 6-week photography school 40+ years ago. It was so I could take unexciting black and white photos of electronic equipment and installations that I worked on or investigated.

Sometimes it was after a disaster, like a fire or shrapnel hit. Yet, our instructors taught us that photographers should always have artistic latitude in their work behind the camera and in the photo darkroom.

Somehow, I don't think the curmudgeons, who were many pay grades above me, or in congress, would have approved of me bringing back photos like this to liven up an otherwise very dull communications system:



Dang, you sure clean up nicely! I promise this will not affect our friendship in any way. I'm open minded and support your decision to become Ken, Kendra.

OH! And yes the enhanced colors were similar to your pictures

Does anyone remember the old SNL skit where Jimmy Carter was on a talk show and people were calling in.

One called was freaking out after taking Orange Sunshine. The TV host tried to beg the called off, but Jimmy Carter insisted on taking the call.

Carter's advice was to drink a beer if the caller had one, and put on some Allman Brothers...

So that's all, just Woohoo! grin

Thanks, JKB and Snakebite!

They were stocked at 6-8" 9-1-12.

Mine too are fairly elusive but this is the third one caught this year (my first) on a worm and bobber.

Fun stuff!

Well guys, I bit the bullet today. While my wife, Nattha, was at the grocery I dug up a few earth worms at the compost pile. When she got home, I pinched down the barb on a long shank "6 hook and took her to the pond to wet the first line ever in our little puddle. In 15 minutes she caught 3 fish; 2 CC, 14" and 16" and one BG 7. I stocked the CC last June at 6 to 7 inch and the BG at 2 to 3 inch. What do you guys think, is that a decent growth for fish not pellet fed?

I managed to get a shot of the BG. Seemed in decent condition for such a hard winter.

Last fall I hand threw a few grain based pellets for a couple weeks to the CC to see if they would take to them and they did right away. This year I will be doing a little supplemental feeding for my entertainment. Larger grain based pelllets to the CC and small 3.5 mm high protein fish meal based pellets to any of the little fellers in the pond that want them.

Bill, that seems like some nice growth. Tell Nadda wanna do anything with a northern Il boy that caint fish to appoint you official camera boy. Also teach her the official Bruce stretch.
Seriously Nattha, those are some pretty good fish with a barbless hook.

Hey Bob,

After she caught 3 she handed me the pole. I fished 15 minutes more and did not catch a dang thing! Guess I will wait to catch a biggun on a different day....when she ain't around! There is a store here that sells whole red snapper. Think she would notice if I brought one up from the pond kind of dead and cold? grin

Few HSB pics lately got me wondering how my girls were doing - so thought I'd cast a couple times tonight to find out.

Caught chunky little sis just under 24"





then big sis just under 27" - size 10 moc for comparison


Fat and sassy!

Jeeze TJ,

I'm not sure I would have thrown those back in.

I figure when mine start to reach 24 inches, they will become dinner. I'm hoping (drooling) that they will reach that size by mid-summer.

My problem with the HSB in my main pond is that they are like the HBG in my small pond. They grab any bait that hits the water, and so far they don't seem to be getting hook shy. What an awful problem. cry crazy

Really nice HSB TJ - lot prettier than mine... grin
Got 50 primo HSB coming from Overton when he delivers tilapia next week or so - "step laddering" this year with all the fresh water in-flow recently - I'm double down for sure but will begin to harvest some of my babies this year - love HSB - thanks for your post.

What fly did you catch them on?.. laugh
