If you don't have one FMB, I can loan you mine. Just don't ask why I have one.

I know, Sunil, I know. I'm a freak.

Without doing proper research, I just figured the condello technique was a straight arm, but I take it that the cheyenne technique is holding the fish vertical with its head at eye level with one hand and no smiling.

The condello technique must be to hold the fish horizontal with 2 arms strectched out fully and a big 'ole cheesy grin???

Please someone set me straight or add what I have missed?

The turtle was shot in the head, so no need to worry about her and hence the pic of the back side, not the front.

Ryan, I'd say the fish in your first picture is about 3-3.5 lbs.

The fish in your second picture is easily 9 lbs. plus.

It did increase in weight at least 150%!

Ryan, concerning the all important "using your right hand technique", drop the lower 4 fingers and raise the thumb just a "schosh" - this makes the tail section look larger.


Just do it...

Comparison of rmedgar's description of improper and proper finger placement technique of the Condello method of the EXACT same fish. Notice how much larger the lower fish appears

Those are some grade-A examples. I'm really proud of how much y'all have learned from me. I will have to agree however, that the fingers in front of the fish have to minimized so as not to give the viewer too much perspective.

That's Bruce's personal rotorcraft hat. Having fished every single BOW in Nebraska and all its surrounding states which can be reached 1) from shore, 2) by boat, 3) by float tube, and 4) personal watercraft of every type, Bruce is now prepared to hit fishing areas that require flying in to.

A minor limitation is the range restriction imposed by the extension cord.

The technique also works on Bruce himself. Notice the young lady in the left of the photo is only about the same size as Bruce and his headdress and the person in the right is only slightly larger than the matchbook being carried.

I see the Argo in the background. Is that yours Bruce? I have a Max IV. Talk about fun vehicles.

Oh and don't let these guys get to you about the hat. I have one in blue and I'm always getting compliments.

That's an Argo, not sure of the model or year.

Here's my Max IV....



They are aquatic so you can run them across a pond. Fantastic traction, will climb almost anything. Mine has a 20HP Kohler Magnum twin cylinder motor. 20HP doesn't sound like much but it's all about torque and gearing. The sheapskin seat covers were optional.

Yes, that's the Argo "Bigfoot". Couldn't live without it. When something needs done on the pond I can literally do it ON THE POND.

My brother was servicing an Argo for a hunting buddy one February and decided to test it out around midnight in a neighbors pond. That thing leaked like a seive! Nothing more invigorating than being soaked to the skin in 20 degree temps.

Must have had something wrong with it. I don't know about Argo's but the Max has seals where each axle passes through the body, much like a propeller shaft seal in an in-board boat. Other than that the hull is sealed just like a boat. As long as the seals are properly maintained there shouldn't be any issues. I don't use mine on the water much (mostly to forge streams, etc) because I always have my Alum Boat handy. Argo and Max are the top brands in the AATV (Aquatic ATV) markets and both are well respected.

I also have a Polarius Ranger and I can tell you that the Max will run circles around it. Much higher power to weight ratio in the Max. I'm gonna build a tilt bed for the back one of these days.
