I am planning on getting my dad a pound of nice dark roast coffee that will hopefully get him awake enough so that i can take him fishing bright and early during the summer

Bought myself a guided fishing trip to Mille Lacs in late June.

I wish I had it as easy as my wife does. I pick out my own father's day, birthday, etc. presents and she's off the hook!

Since I received an H2OC last year, I'm hoping for a Sonocaddie golf GPS this year.

Spinning or baitcasting? What are you going to use it for?

My Dad, myself and my son think the same way. We will all be on the water together.

All I will ever ask of my son on Fathers Day is to get me on the water. He'll be 5 so that won't be hard if I tell him he can drive the boat. The only problem is he doesn't know what trolling speed is but he really laughs when Grandpa pretends his driving scares him. The funny part is, eventually it really will.

I am hoping to be employed again. Other than that, my son and I are going to Green Lake in Spicer in June.

I do a lot of dock fishing or fishing from the shoreline. I need something that can help me get a lot of distance whether using a lure, or live bait.

I'm looking forward to a great Father's Day weekend. My birthday is that Friday, my son's birthday is on Father's Day, and my Dad will be in town visiting from Montana. It'll be the first Father's Day in many years that I get to spend with him so I'm really looking forward to it. Plan on hanging out at the cabin and fishing. May add a round of golf somewhere in there too. Add some good weather, a big juicy steak, and some ice cold beverages and it'll be the perfect weekend!

JewellOutdoors- I don't know what type of fish you’re fishing for or your price range, but I would probably recommend a Shimano Symetre spinning reel. I think they run around $90. Good quality reel. Make sure you have a long rod to help with the distance. Good luck and happy father’s day!

My kids are 6months and 6 years. I have already successfully negotiated with their 'representative' for a new set of trailer tires w/ galvanized rims. With any luck I'll have those in advance and be able to take the boy out on Father's day. cool

Thanks for the great recommendation! I'll have to check it out!

Taking my 2 older boys (3 and 4) and my father in law camping on Vermilion Trout Thursday through Saturday of FD weekend. My dad passed away 9 years ago so he will be joining us only in spirit.

Hoping to catch some lakers on the new (to me) wire line rods/reels I picked up this spring.

Taking my first trip to DC to see the Vietnam Wall. My father was killed in Vietnam when I was a year old.

Mom got married to my stepfather when I was 10 and he has been the greatest.

I do wonder sometimes what it would have been like with my real dad.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
