Cattin' tonight

37 posts in this topic

Well who's all headin' out and braving the weather that they are predicting? I would love to make it out, but I don't think that's going to happen. At this point I can't find anyone to head out with from town here. I really wanted to get one last trip in before I have to give up cats for a week while I am on vacation. Sooooo if anyone is heading out who happens to have an open seat, I would love to jump in, I'll gladly help pay for gas, bait, etc... I have plenty of bait to use as well. Just give me a shout either here or at my email andy at adamsonmotors dot com

I was out last night and again tomorrow. I was thinking about tonight and will have to wait and see what the weather does.

I will be out tonight as long as it is not pouring rain when I am ready to leave. I dont mind fishing in the rain. But once trees start flying by me, I am out of there wink , or when it looks daylight out at 1130 pm because it is lightning out, I am out of there!

Yeah, I was just looking at the weather a little closer, it doesn't look too promising.

Crazyice,

Always an open seat for you buddy....

But tonight may be a little questionable.

If it looks like it's going to be mild, I might be out.

I've decided that when I completely sleep through my alarm that is designed to wake me, I need to slow down a bit.

Boat will stay in the garage tonight.....

I don't disagree and it will kill me to stay home.

It will also kill me to not have a job wink

Mr Big and I have an appt for sometime later this year. I got to see his son the other night with Borch.

I was called into work last night after we got off the water. Didn't get home till 3.

Was supposed to be a meeting this morning at 7............I didn't quite make it.

Daughter came in to my room at 7 and said "you're alarm is too loud, it woke me up." (she sleeps downstairs and on the other side of the house)......It had been going off for 30 minutes....but I never heard it.

Weather report. hail, heavy rain and wind at this time along with thunder boomers right now. Could be a tough night on the river.

Hanson and I sat out some of those same things, and we had a good night, same for him the night before, so I guess I don't know for sure what to think.

I'm pretty fearless myself, but would not want to be on the river right now. The lightning is coming straight down, last one rattled the drinking glasses in the sink.

    • Anyone else try one of these retracting clothes line reels for an anchor rope?  I saw the idea on YouTube thought I'd try it and it's worked great all summer.  You just pull out all the plastic clothes line and replace in with paracord. The paracord is tied to the last 6" or so of clothes line so don't let that end slip back into reel.  Then instead of having anchor rope all over the place it gently goes back into the reel. It holds about 40' which is plenty for me. 
    • Or some Kapernick toilet paper.
    • Like I said very difficult concept to understand.
    • I always thought that you cut into the base of the antlers and count the number of rings.?    
    • That explains A LOT.  I'm guessing you've done this many times.  Trump/Clinton, Ford/Chevy, Lund/Alumacraft, McDonalds/Burger King.....
    • The LED pancake lights only draw about 0.25 amps when both sides of the light are on . Each light has a 3 position switch... 1 side, both sides, and off. We have 3 of them across on the ceiling and they give off good light. We hooked the power up to a set of 3-way wall switches so that you can turn in on by the door or by the bed. The nice part about have separate switches on the lights themselves is you can turn off the rear light is someone is sleeping, or the front light if you are watching a movie.
    • The bed is being make out of 1" square aluminum tubing. I estimate it to only be about 13 lbs once finished. The tube will be cut and welded into a frame. The diamond shape braces will be 1" angle aluminum for support.
    • The buck in the picture is from private land not far from Duluth.  Not much ag land in the area.  The propertyI'm hunting has a lot of apple trees and thats what he's after in this picture.  Not a lot of oaks/acorns from what I can see, not sure what all the other properties have for food.  This is my first year hunting this land so my scouting hasn't been super extensive yet.
    • It wll depend some on farmland buck or northwoods brush eating buck. 1.5 easy, 2.5 fairly easy, 3.5 and older a much tougher buck to age. Used to send our jaws to Madelia,MN for aging and or we were lucky at the old Gene's Standard gas station in New York Mills MN as in the 80's and early 90's there was a guy from the DNR there aging them for us, the drawback was if you wanted to headmount they seemed to cut up the cheek to check the teeth or tooth that like a ring on a tree told him the age. I'd guess 4.5 year old in the picture but does mild winters and genetics play a part, I'd think so.
