Niptrip 2011 pt 5

Recommended Posts

We entertained ourselves the second night with lots of cards, laughs and drinks, punctuated with the occasional fish. One such fish was a beautiful ‘eye that came out of my hole. We were enveloped in a tight game of euchre when John looked across me to my Vexilar and exclaimed ‘There’s a fish!’. I reached behind me for my rod, gave it a lift, and a 6lb7oz marble-eyed beauty slammed my big emerald shiner. John jumped down to the hole for the assist and when he flopped that hog out, we were all smiles and cheers. This fish would ultimately assure me big fish honours on the trip.  We didn’t yet have any fish over slot, but I just had to release that pretty girl so she could go back and make more just like her! ;)

Something I didn’t mention – we had split into teams. Nate and I were ‘Team Ass Crack’ (you can imagine how we earned the moniker), and John and Don were ‘The Peckerheads’ (I’m not sure why they picked that name…). Now, Nate’s not an avid angler – more of a hockey fan. So much so, he nearly bailed on the trip because of the World Juniors. Regardless, he held his own as my partner and represented Ass Crack well (and often).

    • My 2011 Whitetail Buck

      I have been hunting Whitetail with a bow for 20 years now but have done so very passively. Going out only a few times a season or missing several years in a row has kept my success very limited, as in only one doe harvested up until last year. I always enjoyed my time alone in the woods when I could get away from work and also enjoyed a few outings with Misfish. The last few years I have been hunting from a ground blind due to the lack of large trees to put a stand in but didn't mind it since it

    • My 2011 Black Bear

      Last fall was my 2nd year of Black Bear hunting. The year previous (2010) I harvested a young bear with a rifle although my intention was to use my bow. Circumstances didn't allow that to happen. I got another chance when I went up to Eddie Norths camp last September. I was up with my Dad and Son fishing for the week but I also set up a trail cam at a bait sight to see who was in the neighborhood. By Wednesday a bear was coming to the site and I was able to get video and pictures of the bear. It
