They make stuffing tubes for the jerky guns. Although you can't do as much volume-wise, from what I've seen that works pretty slick. I have an attachment for my grinder and so far that has worked well for me for sticks. I think it would be a slow process if I was doing like brats or summer sausages though.

The higher the pick, the more inherent risk of publicized failure. Let's not forget that we also have many standouts that were picked in round 1. Matt Khalil is only a bust because he's lazy, Harrison Smith, Rhodes, Barr, I like what I've seen from Mike Hughes for a rookie so far, Trae Waynes has had his moments but far from bust worthy. Sharrif Floyd wound up with nerve issues but was a beast. If you're going to make him take credit for the busts, you have to give him credit for the talent he's found as well. Not just in the first round, but like say I don't know...Stefon Diggs in the 5th round? Undrafted Adam Thielen, fourth round selection Everson Griffen, on and on and on...

Thanks. I think knights is where we heard quite a few boats went up to. They caught larger fish but less eaters. Not a bad trade since we know where to find eaters if we're hungry.

We had a NE wind so it would have been trouble for us, though we did go out to about 30' to see how choppy it was, I would say it would have been a really long ride having to take the angles. My boat is the smallest at 16' with a 75hp. It's wide and rides waves well but I start to pucker pretty good when we're in those big rollers. I also have a side console, and the other two boats are 17' with 90-115hp with full windshields and enclosures and even still they had no intention of going that far. Maybe it would be worth it for us to take a launch or something to get out there for a chance.

For the fourth year in a row my dad, myself and an odd combination of our friends traveled to LOW for a weekend of September transition fishing. The first two years we stayed at Border View Lodge, which was a great place, but due to the increase in size of our party and the fact that the MTT Championship is held there the same weekend every year, we have moved over to Cyrus resort on Bostick Crk. Can't say enough good things about either of them, both resorts are fantastic. For the fourth year in a row we all left with limits of fish and had fish fries too. It was great fishing, best luck was on spinners with half a crawler and slow death hooks.

So, with that, every year we go there we try fishing a new area, and always seem to wind up back at the same place out by Pine Island year after year after year because that's where we catch fish. Not that we should complain because it's close and our boats (mine especially) aren't that big to handle some of the rollers out there, but I really would like to try some new areas if at all possible. One thing we have lacked greatly is getting into any kind of size at all. We catch all kinds of very small to good eating sized fish, but really would like a chance at something on the top end or over the slot. This year our biggest was 23", and a 21.5". The previous three years were all about the same. So is there anywhere around there really where the chances of bigger fish are better? We just haven't seen them but I think next year I'm willing to test my boat out to try and find bigger fish in-lieu of quantity.

Are you making straight ghost pepper or adding in cheese? I had some ghost pepper sticks last weekend from super one, I'm not totally convinced they were even ghost pepper, but just plain and I didn't think they were great. The hot pepper sticks I've had with various cheeses, like swiss, are usually pretty good. Might cut the heat down a bit too. I know LM Fleet and other similar stores like Runnings carry the Backwoods high temp cheeses for sausage making. Just a thought.

All I can say about the Vikings is I'm glad they are spending money on players that matter both in skills and in positions of need, and the Wilf's despite whatever their past may be in the financial world are actually respectful to fans and are trying to put a product out that meets our expectations.

I really hate to derail this into a Twins rant but we are all suckers when it comes to that franchise and the Pohlad family whether you wanted the stadium or not. We paid for it and we're suckers. It's quite frankly embarrassing, I'm embarrassed for our state for what the Pohlads continue to do every year, which is treat Target Field exactly as the name implies - a big box store filled with cheap goods. I have not watched a Twins game, bought Twins merch, or paid to see a game since 2011 when Joe Mauer went down after playing 9 games the season of his whopper $128mil contract and the Twins told nobody what was going on other than he had a mysterious "bilateral leg weakness". Lack of honesty and transparency to fans who got a multimillion dollar stadium built for the owners to rake in cash and shovel out garbage for us all to choke down isn't something I can get behind. And it makes me sad, I like baseball, I used to love the Twins and sit and watch way too many games than I should have. Probably never again and unfortunately my kid will never know how fun it can be.

So anyway, I'm glad the Vikings/Wilfs, at least for now are holding up their end of the bargain when it comes to fulfilling promises. I know championships are tough, I'd love to see one, but even more I just like to see a competitive team with spirit and an organization that at least puts on the facade that it cares about fans. Hopefully 25 years from now when Target Field is no longer "state of the art" and millions/(billions maybe by then) need to be spent on renovating or rebuilding we remember how we were treated the last time. At least the triple H saw a couple world series. I don't see that happening over at the big box store. I'm done ranting now, I feel much better.

I went back and found the Strib quote: "I allowed the two to keep their legal possession limit of 20 crappies," Miller wrote in his report. "They were informed they needed to eat the fish they had prior to keeping any more crappies" ........!

These were MN residents. Not poachers from the Dakotas. And I don't know if anyone caught the STRIB story but it didn't seem like there was any enforcement action actually taken other than they confiscated 253 of the 273 fish they caught. Yes...they left the couple with their 20...I guess they legally are entitled to them as they are not yet guilty of a crime but...backwards to me. I shouldn't say "no enforcement action" because I'm sure charges are pending, but still.

This is an old dead thread, but I just learned that ATVsleds in Brainerd is closed up. Apparently the owner was arrested on forgery and falsifying documents charges, which coincidentally seem to fit this topic from 5 years ago. They also sold vehicles, I bought a beater pickup from them back in 2015 and had allll sorts of problems getting a title for it with every excuse in the book. That took almost 5 months if I remember, and they couldn't blame LARS back then lol. Anyway just thought it was interesting.

They definitely have peanut oil in smaller containers if you dont need a gallon at a time. I've found it at the grocery store even in the little little containers. You could make rubber crispy with peanut oil I'm pretty sure. Definitely my favorite for fish, and it stores without a fishy smell. Also if you haven't tried coconut oil, don't be afraid it's pretty good. I don't think it's that coconutty myself. Not something I have on hand a lot though.
