Fishing over Memorial Weekend

6 posts in this topic

We fished over the weekend on a couple different lakes. We fished Winni and had moderate success in front of Highbanks with the largest fish being 23" on Saturday. It was a fun day and even after a liberal dosing of sunscreen, I got quite sunburnt (no pics-thank goodness). We also went crappie fishing on a very small local lake near the cabin and while we didn't catch a ton, it was a fun day! I love crappie fishing! Jim's brother and his wife and boys stayed up at the cabin this weekend also. What did everyone else do?

Good to hear you had good luck. I got out with Walli1 on the croix yesterday and had a great walleye day. Walli1 caught a 24", my best was a 20.5". Very good day for me on the water.

How fun!! The biggest walleye I got on Saturday was 19". I also caught my very 1st largemouth bass on Sunday. He was fun but not very big. grin

I went up to the cabin and after we put in the dock and boatlift, I took my 8 year old neice and 4 year old nephew into town to pick up bait. My nephew had never been in a bait shop before and as soon as he walked in he said in his loud voice "it stinks in here", everyone had a good chuckle. When I finally got the kids set up to fish, I tossed out a sucker minnow and almost forgot about it, I turned and sure enough the bobber was down. It was a 3lb 11oz Nothern and it sure impressed the kids. Didn't catch much after that but the kids had fun, especially watching me filet the fish.

I didn't go fishing at all cry. Friday I fixed the garage door handle, and put the bumper the "old grouch" bought for the lawn mower on, planted some plants. Saturday I got up and the weather looked kinda dicey so I figured maybe not, took the 4 wheeler out instead goofed around in the forest looking for rocks, mushrooms, and wolf tracks. It started to clear up and I thought hmmm maybe now, checked the battery on the boat..........dead! Good thing though as the weather turned nasty. Sunday it was so cold I didn't feel like going out so I did laundry and some blasting around here. Oh yeah and had to fix the other garage door handle cause the old grouch managed to pull that one loose too. Cheap doors from a big box company M.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
