What's new, pt. 2

55 posts in this topic

It's been kinda quiet in here lately. Hopefully that means you are all out having fun!

Didn't fish this weekend (again frown ), but we took our kids out for an after church picnic. This is a tradition we started when our kids were little.

We did not fish either, the wife (Terry) was down in Otsego with the grandkids. We just relaxed when she got home today. Super day for that!!

The family picnic and day together are the greatest thing a family can do!!

I went fishing but I was the only one to catch anything and all that amounted to was 3 super small sunnies and a sun burn crylaugh. But it was sooo worth it to finally get out on the lake with my dad, long over due. I hope everyone had a great weekend. smilesmilesmilesmile

Went to LOTW Thurs night thru Sunday. Cold and WINDY on Fri so no fishing. frowncry Sat around in long johns & sweatshirts by the fire & grilled a turkey. Saturday was nice and got out there twice. Caught 10 walleye between the 4 of us. Lakes were so messed up from all the wind they had the last 5 days. At least we came back with something for a fish fry. We also got a new truck (06 Toyota Tundra) Now we have something that can pull the bayliner again..!!!!! laughlaughgrinlaugh

It's so new.. I'm kinda scared to drive it.. Don't want anyone running into it or dinging the doors.. (it only has 16,000 miles on it and no dings, dents or rubs, yet)

I feel the exact same way about our Tundra. It's the newest vehicle I've ever owned either. I never drive ours. It's super powerful, fast and big. I like my car. But it hauls our boat and snomo trailer very well!

I caught 4 fish last night, wish I could have been out longer then an hour. 3 were suckers, but it didn't matter. More ball games this weekend, so probably won't get out for a while.

The season is over after this, so there might be a little time.

What kind of seat covers are you looking at. I would think the tiger stripped ones would look good. Would that match up with anything else, when your driving it. laughwhistlewinkwhistlelaughlaughsmirksmirk

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
