Anyone Planning trips yet?

27 posts in this topic

I'm trying to line up dates with my crew already!!!

I'll be headed back up the gunflint again this year for lakers and to LOW after not going for 3 years (went to URL instead). I might try and plan a 3rd weekend trip too.

I'm also going to make an effort to fish my local lakes much more this winter.

You Bethca!! Heading up to Crow Lake to give Lakers a try again and hit the crappies across the road. The MuskieBay outing was an experience that was out of this world. You've got to try the thornebros Outing!! what a blast. I Believe it will be in February again. Cheapest trip I've taken and the hosts are unbelievable. Top on my list. I get tired of LOW every weekend. I booked my trip with the war department already. she's out that weekend.

Mille Lacs is looking better. I might have to make a few day trips up that way this winter with the portable. It's good to see it on its way back.

People seem to be booking for winter quicker than normal, maybe they missed their summer trip and are getting antsy for a trip? Any how it sounds good to me.

We have more reservations at this time than we had last season. Maybe the cooler summer has everyone thinking about winter early.

I will be heading to Bay De Noc at least 2 times this year again, then U-Red and LOW...

Most of my time will be spent on Lake Gogebic in the UP chasing perch.

I started a money envelope for a january trip to either URL or LOW (whichever I can get a reservation at). If neither pan out, the probably winni (highbanks area wink ). Normally I've gone to gunflint lake for lakers in march, but I think this year I'll either go to ely or chequamegan bay.

Pipestone lake in Ontario for lake trout 1st week of January and then again in the beginning of February. Fishing anywhere else, for anything else just isn't the same anymore!! Beautiful scenery, solitude, and lots of big, aggressive fish. Doesn't get any better than that!

Got one planned for Red the first weekend in January. I have never gone that early, is the ice "always" good to go by that weekend to go all over the lake with a wheeler or sled?

    • Check out the 2017 Obsession Hurcan 366fps and 3.9 lbs!
    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
