  4. I like dKilla's list, but need to add a 50# striper and an arctic char. By all means, get out there and take those trips while you can.

    1) Upper Missouri River system impoundments trip-Ft. Peck, Sakakawea, Oahe, Francis Case, Lewis & Clark.

    2) Green Bay/Bays De Noc

    3) Bay of Quinte

    4) Columbia River System

    5) Devils Lake

    EZ Lets go, I'll drive! I have to get up there some day and toss buzz baits in Western Alaska for 50" Pike and 40# Sheelfish. If you never heard of Sheelfish look em up. They call them fresh water Tarpon. Gotta catch some.

    I forgot my best one, it's a where type thing as compared to a what. I'd love to get 3-5 guys together and go to MN in the middle of winter in one of those self contained fishing trailers. Sleeps 4-12, get up in the middle of the night to piss and ya check your lines and rebait, get woke up at 3am because you've got a fish on...I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about. In the next few years, I'm on for a trip that way!!

    swantucky.........I guess you are in reference to something I read.....that was about ice fishing for those "GIANT SHARKS" that just damn well could pull you right down after them........Don't remember the exact size(weight) but do remember they were "MONSTERS"......... Jon SR.
  18. I am almost 58 and I am glad I still take several trips a year hunting and fishing with my close and long time friends. I see too many of my old friends doing nothing it is like they are waiting to die. I was not able to start my trip today due to road conditions but my plan is to leave Sunday at 9:30AM for Tn. fishing four days. It may not be the trip of a life time but it is time for a trip with friends and making memories. It is no longer about how many of or what I catch or kill, it is the trip and friends and memories and just making sure you are living life and not just living. Don't you just love Misfits signature.
  19. stand up fishing for giant tuna:B !!!! then just cut up the fish as soon as it hits the deck of the boat and eat some fresh sushi!! oh yea and my lifetime hunt for a yardstick"36in" walleye.

    P.S. Ooo yes it will be mine!!!
  20. I would love to try fly fishing out west in mountains. I have never been out there, but have heard about how beautiful it is!
