Been busy with harvest and just popped in here and you guys re-arranged the furniture. Thought I’d find some explanation in the announcement area but no. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong place??

What do you harvest? I’ve been dropping by the forum, too, hoping it will start getting more activity. I offered to buy it months back when they needed funding. I'd like to get people talking and buzzing in here. : ) There's a lot of potential.

Hi, I raise dry land white wheat. Pretty much all you can grow around here is wheat varieties unless you have irrigation. Most of the irrigators around here are growing spuds, canola and corn. I’m also rather confused about why the traffic here just seemed to die. At times things were kinda slow and I thought with covid keeping many people at home things would have really picked up but it was just the opposite. I don’t know what the answer is but would hate to lose this resource of information because I learned a heck of a lot here.

Well sir you never replied to my last question about how your newly filled local trout lake was doing?

As a full time jigger been learning a lot over the years I could share but ain't wasting my time posting if no one cares.

About the big drop in activity...... i wish i had an answer. It just kind of tanked out and never came back. I went on some posting sprees here and there trying to get things going but it only worked for a short period of time. A few other members i think tried something similar. It doesn't make sense since a lot of articles i see on other websites talk about the resurgence of people using hair jigs. Maybe that is just product hype? Not sure, but i have been using hair and feather jigs with great results for a long time now. I certainly have several other options i throw when walleye fishing but probably 95% of my panfish or bass fishing is done with hair jigs.

The JC site has changed ownership so i am no longer in charge. All the updates were made by the new owner. I think the new layout looks great! I believe i am still a moderator here though.....? For a little while, i was unable to post since it was saying my account was not verified. Not sure what his long term plans with the site are. The timing honestly worked out because my work load tripled over night a few weeks back when by biz partner had a minor stroke and is still recovering. Him and his wife were out for several weeks and only back in the shop part time at the moment. Also moved my daughter in to her college dorm..... that was pretty rough. I have been busy to say the least and haven't been fishing in probably a month. THAT needs to change very soon though. All work and no fishing makes Jack a dull boy.

As for those who paid (just a few months back) to help keep the site up and running..... i do plan to fully reimburse you! Duffy, you paid through snail mail so send me a PM with your address and I will get your $$ back to you.

Hmm must have missed that one… Could have sworn that I had posted that once the alge goo cleared up the fishing was pretty good as I was told by some trout fishermen. Now the water level is way back down because we haven’t gotten any real rain since Jan, Feb and if we don’t get some moisture this winter it’s probably going to dry up next year.

Duffy, thanks for the reply. Perhaps I'm feeling sensitive about being ignored - many topics over the years ended with my question.

When I go out north to do my field work I’ll try and swing by the lake and get some pics. I haven’t been by there for some time but others have said it’s pretty low.

Just a heads up - the site is still here, and I'm working on moving all the previous blog items over to the updated blog.

Thanks to all that have been checking in.
