The Muskie Monkey is a full grown silverback.

 

But I think gorillas still eat bananas.  :teacher:

 

A lot of them too.  An adult gorilla can eat around 30kg of vegetation in a single day, which is roughly the equivalent of 210 bananas.

 He's pried at least $4k from my wallet since last August for muskie gear. He can afford all the bananas he wants. DANG!!! That escalated quickly.

The Bait Monkey forced me to BPS today to pick up a couple more utility boxes.  I usually only buy Plano because they're USA made.  To my surprise, BPS branded utiity boxes are also USA made: they say Plano Manufacturing on them.  I picked up what I needed, plus one bag of 10" worms.  BPS also went back to 10% military discount.  All in all a good trip.

 

I'm a big Kistler fan, and also ordered one of Trey's limited edition 20th Anniversary LTA Helium rods.  Not like I need ANOTHER 7' MH rod.... but ....

 

All this, just in time to drive by three ponds OTW home that were iced, or nearly iced over....

Getting ready for some hiking and stream fishing for trout. I found a good deal on a 4 piece Tenryu Rayz Integral. It's super lightweight and a work of art.  It will be a learning experience for me. I'm going to pair it with a Shimano Conquest BFS. More fun stuff to come.

Can't wait to throw this shark frog.

Also added some BFS minnow baits, replenished others I've recently lost, and restocked some finesse swimbaits.

I have been meaning to get a decent spinning reel, I was having a hard time deciding between a Vanford, stradic, something daiwa. I finally decided and I wanted to get a jerk bait reel. I also grabbed some more jerk baits, going down the jerk bait rabbit hole is proving to be expensive over time. Then I stopped by Ollie’s and bought some more lucky craft jerk baits and crank baits for $6 a piece not too shabby.

@Jmurphy87 The monkey appreciates your contribution 😉 black and white middle finger GIF

 

This is great. He was trying to decide between a handful of spinning reels, but went with a casting reel instead. So we all know he STILL has to get that spinning reel. Clyde definitely approves!

Yep most certainly does, I had been fighting on the spinning reel since last summer. And finally decided to go for it. Yes I definitely have a problem, I like tackle and reels and rods way too much. But there’s a lot worse things that I could do. Oh well someday I might own a zoo lol.

@Jmurphy87 You’re going to need a zoo for all the monkeys you’re attracting! 🤣

 

Cracking Up Lol GIF

Yes I will lol, like I tell people when I get stuff at the store. I take a big duffel bag fishing and what do I throw, three things if I am lucky. Usually wading with a pocket of ziplock plastics and what I have tied on. I just like to keep myself sharp on multiple techniques even though I mainly throw jigs and plastics. Sad realization but true, it lies all with me. At least I won’t be lonely the monkeys can keep me company lol.

went to the surplus store in carson city ( same people own the one in chesaning) to pick up some minnie’s for ice fishing sunday.   The fishing selection that place has is amazing.  they have doubled thier size in 2 years and it’s pretty much all fishing stuff in the new addition.  they do get a lot of over stock from the previous year but, also have new this year tackle. 

 

looks like 13 fishing is discounting the cliff banger cranks?  because, they had boxes of them for $3.99.  i wasn’t looking to buy cranks today but, for that price i’ll bite.  looks like TW and other sights are blowing the cliff bangers out.  i will be going back for more. 

 

size 60 epic shad 

size 60 in epic gill 

size 70 in olive crush 

power pro 20 lbs in hi-vis yellow 

12 lbs big game 

and a #7 black and silver shad rap.  

 

should be ice fishing sunday.  crystal lake had 4-5 inches of solid black ice.

Should be Flashing Wakasagi, but as Jedi said, if the actual product has a color name on it, it's in Japanese.  

 

I use Digitaka's website to find the color names.

Last bait monkey grab for a while. Saving up for a new trolling motor.

 

Can't wait to try the Deps Crawler out. Should be a blast. Also the Ghost Tiger 110 Jr +1 is one the coolest colors I've seen yet from Megabass.

Do it!   We always need another tackle warehouse in the state 🤣😎

 

@gimruis is right sadly, we become vampires in July and August.  90d nights are hardly fishable.   

 

Not to mention those northern fish seem so eager to bite once the season is open.   Those fish get to reset every winter.   

I love how you put “hardly fishable” in there.

 

Folks - take note that this young man didn’t say “un-fishable”. I can agree and empathize. I’ll get on the TN River or Guntersville or Wherler at 200 degrees. Really only because I’m prone to getting real wet in my kayak.

Nothing special compared to the majority of posts here, but I was at a conference today in a town that had a BP, so snuck out there on the lunch break. The Mepp's are my wife's favorite lures, so I knocked out her Valentine's Day gift a little early. The Tri Color worms were on sale and look to be pretty good for all the finesse fishing I normally do. 

 

It seems like the Mepp's were a whole lot cheaper the last time I bought any. These things were like $7 each. Oh well. Happy Wife...Happy Life.
