Long Nights Make for Short Days

9 posts in this topic

As I was heading home this morning on 19 driving down into the valley I got a good chuckle. Climbing out of the valley looked to be two weary warriors; as we passed the passenger of the vehicle looked to be out....classic pose of head back while sporting an open tea-kettle for a mouth.....they were towing a low-profile RP so I'm assuming they came from The Beast at the bottom of the valley. If the passenger wasnt out I apologize, if he was I'm impressed with his quick shutdown time!

Spring rush is probably coming to a close soon....hopefully some of you river rats catch up on your beauty sleep you ugly lot. laugh

laugh Amen to that!

As much as I would like to be out fishing tonight I needed to catch up on some chores. With a successful outing last night I don't mind too much taking the tonight off. Things can sure pile up when you've been spending lots of time down in the valley. But with the spawn right around the corner cant take too much time off. Perhaps I will hit the river late tonight and try a morning bite. wink

I too have probably been spending a little more time on the river than I should, but boy has it been fun. I also just caught my PB for the season last night which wasn't hugh but great to do battle with after all the 20 lb or less flatties. I am not going to be complaining though it has been fun and my boys are even getting in on the action a little more this year which just makes it that much more fun for me. Congrat to all of you that have been putting in your time and being rewarded, to everyone else your time will come just keep putting in your dues. later

I have been paying my dues recently, and I am still waiting for a payoff. Since Thursday, I have spent more hours in the boat, then out of the boat. The passengers in my boat have faired well, but I am still waiting. I have plans to take a night or two off to catch up on the family thing, then hit'er hard for the long weekend. Congrats to all the personal bests, its good to see all of the large fish being caught lately.

    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
