Heading out again

3 posts in this topic

Getting ready to head to Fremont Wisconsin to fish the Wolf River with around 40 others gals. River fishing is pretty new to me and I am trying to work up the courage to take the boat up there next year. We are going to Red Banks Resort which has some pretty good dock and shore fishing. It's been a pretty busy winter for me and I am eager to get out and do some open water fishing. I plan on being in Wis. for 7 days, then head back home to meet some friends up on the Rainy River to introduce me to sturgeon fishing. It's an item that was on my bucket list but I have always been a bit scared that I can't handle it physically. I am so stoked and hope to be able to post some great pictures from both excursions.

Back from all my fishing excursions, Red Banks fishing was okay with a few walleyes caught, then went with a couple of friends crappie fishing on Winnebago. We were just getting into some nice 12 inch crappies when the wind started to kick up and the white caps started to roll in within ten minutes. Next day we went to watch the sturgeon spawning by Shiocton Wis. just too darn windy to get out. Next day it was walleye fishing on the fox river at DePere, I got a few small ones but my friend got two in the 24 and 25 inch range. Made the 7 hour drive home on Friday and packed to head up to the Rainy river for sturgeon. First day was rainy and cold and I got soaked and 4 of us got skunked. Sunday we waited till 5 pm to head out, that night was the most exciting fishing I have had in a long time. I got to land my first sturgeon which was a 47", then around 9 pm we had doubles on. I thought I was hooked on a log until it started peeling drag out, hard as I tried I couldn't budge it but a few feet, then it would run and was smoking the drag on my reel. I felt like I was fighting a whale and it took everything I had in me to finally get it up to the boat so my buddy could net it. I was exhausted and I knew I pulled a muscle in my shoulder.  But here it is, not the most flattering picture but I was darn near ready to pass out. My 60.5'" 21" girth sturgeon, if I ever decide to go again I gotta lose some weight and work out more.

    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL 
    • Leech is absolutely on the right track.  Likely an easy remedy here.
    • Oh yes, he has been around guns since young. I suspect it is a combination of his thinking they are "cool" weapons and the fact that he lives and often has to work in a "high tension" area. I believe he is more interested in high cap than high quality and he can likely spend something reasonable. Since these things are not my bag I am unaware of pricing, features etc. just told him I could ask around for him. Have never had one in my hands! He may have been fired up because he saw some special at F.Farm on them. Thanks.
    • No battery in a 185 3 wheeler. Will have to pull it by hand.
    •   Does he own other guns?   What does he want it for? Self defense Hunting Just to own an AR because they are cool   How much money does he have to spend on one?
