Blazing Stars and Bluestem

Prairie Expanse
Once covering the great expanse of the Glacial Lake Aggassiz basin, the eastern tallgrass prairie is now merely a shadow of its former self. Bisected by rowcrops of corn, soybean and sugarbeets, interspersed with beds of sunflowers and amber waves of wheat, the once blazing prairie fell victim to the blade of the plow. What's left is merely a pittance of a once prodigious parcel.

The following is a brief glimpse into one of the largest sections of virgin prairie remaining in Minnesota, and one of the highest quality prairie sites in the U.S.

bonanza

hook bonanza
The China connection hooked a brother up. Look at them tasty carp hooks, all shiny and whatnot. Extra strong, chemically sharpened, forged stainless steel, with a slight beak. Available in black or unpainted.

Size 4
Size 6
You'd be upset to hear what I paid for them sumbitches, so I'll spare you the agony. Let's just say that they were between Two-buck Chuck and a Five Dollar Whore, per hundred.

bass materials

I know it's August, but at 40% off, I don't mind celebrating Christmas a little early...

materials
Normally I hold the save the sheets of tinsel for esocid streamers, but this stuff is just a bit narrower than the standard stuff, perfect for some bassin'. Shades of deep gold, cherry red, and pearl will get those scruffy looking nerfherders to hand. Time for some bass thumb action.

mega chenille
Check out the fatty-bo-batty rolls of chenille; 15 mil wide. I'm thinking bunnies all the way. Substitute rabbit with the chenille and you've got game. This stuff is live!

The Seven Year Itch

Got crabs clams? My boy MG is finally taking a cue from the roughfisher and getting his tippet wet with some bearded clams. Seems he's been spotted peepin' on a bunch of caprs hoovering up clams like they were going out of style. He's nasty! Being the master voyeur that I am, I handed over a few top tips to Señor Chrome Dome on how to lead the donkey through the barn door. Ol' Gracie prefers his clams Brazilian style: nicely shorn and sparkly. Wait until you see them wet.

Here's a refresher in case your bitch ass forgot how bitchin' my Darth Clam And Zebra mussel patterns are. Photo courtesy of my foot in your ass.

herd of clams
The Darth Clam 2.0, specially modified for the DSP. Putrid piss green shell and an arsenic tan colored siphon. Radioactive sparkle courtesy of glitter flavored Hard as Nails. Optional foot played out by olive glimmer flash chenille. All on a nasty strong curved carp hook. Included are a few variations to keep them caprs on their fins.

Y'all ain't got nuttin' on me.

How about a clam sandwich?

Dr. Hook

carp hooks
I recently came into a score of British hooks, though I suspect their origin being of Chinese descent. Curved shank, barbless, at minimum 2X strong. Size 8.

carp hooks
A comparison of size 8 hooks between: secret carp hook, Tiemco 2457, Tiemco 3761, and Mustad 34007. Hands down winner, the secret carp hook is the winner. Stouter than any hook on the table and cheaper by at least half the price per 100. The kicker? I have a shipment coming in from China that may be even more dank than this stuff. Stay tuned.
