Recommended Posts

trapingaddiction/not to often do i weigh them,but i do measure a few of the bigger ones over 20".Here in nipigon you can only keep one if it is over 22", there is quite a few over 22" but you have to work for it .The river closes to brookies on the 15 of this month planning one to two more trips before it closes and an over nighter.

how are the guys on wisfly?

I haven't been there in quite some time Len. As you know I got started there on the Coaster restoration discussion. When that ended there just wasn't much else there to keep me interested. Looks like you've been having fun lately..

The upper river is awesome. A 15 mile boat ride would have put you guys at the Virgins. That's big Trout country for sure. How was the last trip of the season? Unfortunately I had to work on closing day. Same old story. Too much work and too little play...

    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some. 
    • Brotha’ you got that right.   Actually I’m cooking hobos over the campfire in Ely right now.  Not a bad second fiddle.   I won’t be a cooking hobo in a blind this weekend.
