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.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
