Good video. I grew up on Lake Erie and when I was that kids age I was on the Rocky River pier about everyday during the summer fishing for sheephead, perch, white bass and if the wind blew stirring up the water catfish came into the shallow water. Good times. The only invasives in the lake back then were smelt and planted steelhead.
I was out there on Thursday Fuzz.... We ran crawler harnesses in 24-25 feet of water and had our 3 man limit of walleye before noon...... We got bounced around a little more than was comfortable for me....... And had to sort through some sheephead....
Yeah that’s it Paul... it was about 2 footers by noon and my buddies called me a wuss for feeling a little queasy...... but they are both boat guys.... I’m not really..... 7 years in the Navy and never on a ship.... I flew in land based airplanes....... ha !!! Some Navy man I am.......
If I would have suggested keeping any sheephead.... they would certainly have thought that I intended to use them for bear bait....... ha !!!!
Copy that on the harnesses Bigbear. I was out solo out of Monroe the week before and the "chop" was 3-5 footers. That makes things interesting Lol!
Like i said...They taste fine but absolutely cover the inside of the cooler with their "sheep chit! That's the biggest reason I toss em' back. Biggest I've caught was a 28 incher... thought I had snagged a body.
I love the creative side of filming and then putting the edit together. I know my moose hunt with carcus and manitobabohuntr will be one for the ages. If the moose hunting is slow then there will be lots of time for golden hour b-roll. Until then it will be some fishing films like this one!
Nice video r'junkie! Got me pumped to go battle some ewe's! It was "bring your boat to work day" today... Leaving the Jeep plant at 3 and will be on Lake Erie at 330! Im sure plenty of farm animals will be wrestled!
We killed the walleye on Friday....was done in a few hours. Never caught one sheephead! Went back out yesterday and got limits of walleye again along with a few small sheep and some big yella' perch! Heading back out today after work with the daughters!
Nicely done Fuzz...BIG BEAR, I realized that a ton of hunters would love to be in my position, and I get to hunt moose at a fraction of the price, so I need to do it every year now (take advantage of my "youth.) I'm lucky that I have two young sons who love the outdoors, so when I'm old and can't pack out a moose anymore they will be there!
Good work on the videos junkie. I admire your grasp of the concept that the video action itself should tell the story, not lengthy talking-face sequences which are all-too-common in most outdoor videos. Thanks for showing us, instead of telling us. Great job!
