I actually have a fishing report!!

29 posts in this topic

Hi everyone! I went fishing both Saturday and Sunday! I almost got skunked on Saturday though. I did end up with one perch. Jim did very well with 5 walleyes with 2 being 27". It was super windy and I had problems with bite detection. frown

Today was a little slower but it was a beautiful day to be on the water. We could only spend a couple of hours out there though. I caught the only walleye (22"). It was one of those great zinger bites when it pulls the line right off your finger and then takes a fast run. Very fun! We had a ton of loons all around us and a couple eagles too.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jackie!!! Hope your day's been awesome too!

It was great Jackie! It's a little bittersweet to be up at the cabin now though! We just put it on the market and have had a couple look at it already. It's all painted up, constantly clean and now we aren't enjoying it like we should.

You got out fishing whoo hooo. I wish I would have this weekend but I needed a bum weekend. I did wash the car today. It was full of sap from being parked under trees last weekend.

Hope

Glad to hear you got out Lisa, you deserve it!! Even if fishing was slow, still nice to be on the water for you I bet.

I am so glad you finally got out. I don't know how you managed to fish on Saturday, brutal winds again. I did the Deer River Parade yesterday, so proud of myself walked the whole route. Then I sat by the stage waiting to see Doug Kershaw, stiffened up. Had to keep getting up to move around. I first saw the "Ragin Cajun" at the taste of Minnesota and it must have been 25 years ago, man is he old! Man, am I old!!!

It was good to get back on the water and leave it all behind for a couple days.

Barb, good to hear you had a good time at the Wild Rice Days. We've only gone once many years ago so my boy could go on the rides. It's a pretty big deal up there!

Glenn, I am positive we'll still fish up there. We'll just have to camp which sounds pretty fun too!

I'm actually pretty jealous of Hope since her whole family seems to own/maintain a family cabin. That sounds awesome!

Sandmann, again, congrats on adopting that daughter of yours.

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
