Be thankful you have good memories of your dad, I don't. But I do miss my mom and my older brother. I can't go fishing without thinking about him.

Dad has been gone since 1980 and is deeply missed by his 3 boys and wife of 40 years. Memories of trips to Leech Lake and growing up at a resort on Little Mantrap will be forever. The hunting and fishing was good. Please enjoy all the time you have with loved ones. We never know when our time together will end. He trapped, hunted, fished, until he couldn't get around because of cancer. Being in the outdoors alone always reminds me of him.

Keep thinking of all the positives. The pain eases but missing him most likely won't. That's OK though, Dad's are a huge impact on us all.

I hear ya. It's been a year and a half here and I think about him every day. I see a little of him in my 7 year old daughter and it seems to ease that twinge I get when I think about him. The first sentence in sandmannds reply is what I keep telling myself and it's what I told my daughter. Seemed to help her and I know it helped me.

Back in the mid eighties we had a foul up in our deer hunting party. My brother and brother in law bought licenses for first season and my dad and I bought season. Anyway come second weekend I shot my first buck ever on Saturday and on Sunday we went out and I shot my second buck ever. My brother had come home just to see how we did and he was leaving to go back to the cities at noon. We loaded up that buck and dad drove my 77 grand marquis 130 mph back to town just to catch my bro before he left to go home. We made it home just as my bro was pulling out. I think all the adrenaline I had coursing through my body was more about going 130 mph and less about my second buck. Good times.

    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
    • That's rough DrJ, were you on public or private land?   
    • They're finally playing someone outside of the central division tonight, so we'll see what happens. Did Sano get suspended for throwing a punch yesterday?
