Happy Mother's Day!

23 posts in this topic

I'd just like to say a warm Happy Mother's Day to all the moms on our site. I am also a proud mother of a 14 year old who is the joy of my life (I'm feeling so sappy right now-please bear with me! blush ). My mother really didn't enjoy fishing but she instilled in me the love of the outdoors and how important it is to be active. She gave me the love of camping, smores and silly songs around the campfire. smile I'll be heading up to my hometown and visiting with my mom, 3 sisters and nieces. What does everyone else have planned?

I am not a Mom (except to my hubby and animules) and I lost my own Mom in 1995 so no big celebrations. I just got home from the craft show in Brainerd (which was dismal)and I think I am going to sleep all day tomorrow. I got up at 4am and got back home at 8:30 so I am tired. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ sleep

I am a mom to 3 daughters. We are heading to church, than to my in-laws for "a little lunch". My mother-in-law lives in a nursing home in a nearby town, but comes home every sunday for church. It is tradition to spend a little time with them on sunday's. We are brining my laptop to show grandma the 800 pictures two of my daughters took on their trip to Washington DC a couple of weeks ago. After that, we have to deliver a trailer to Mankato (2 hour drive). We may sneak up to my mom's in the Cities and surprise her with a bouquet of flowers.

I woke up at 7 this morning and I can hardly move, looks like I better start working out with weights. I think I am going to hang up this craft show thing after this year, I am getting to old for this. I would rather be fishing..............Have a Happy Mother's Day.

PS we came up with a brilliant idea yesterday, lobby the politicians to swap Mother's Day with Father Day. Then the Minnesota fishing opener would be perfect!

Happy Mothers day to all. No fishing today as I feel the only way to spend the day is with the women in my life. My mother,wife and daughter in law. My wife told me to go fishing today, boy, she is a gem. There is plenty of time this summer to go fishing.

We are all getting together today and are going to do a little grilling for supper.

Again, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.

Happy Mothers day. Couldn't be where I was without mom! Buying brunch is the least I can do for her (I was a ten pound baby blush). Thanks for all your support mom!

    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
