Hey Greg, hope all is going well in the U.P.

Gus called me last week and said He had my son's 2 lb 1 oz

one done. I have 3 more up there. I told him I could wait until they were all ready. It sounded like he has quite the backlog but because the fishing business is slow he has had more time for the mounts. I've got the pictures on my bulletin board and everytime I see them the "fever" kicks in.

Take care!

Doing good TO, haven't talked to Gus lately I have been mostly fishing the Bay in Ashland. I would recommend sending Gus and email to see where he is at on the mounts. I am sure his lovely wife Nettie will reply asap... How has the fishing been for you? Looks like you got a good one in your Aviator. I am getting ready to book my LOW trip for mid Jan, not sure where I am going yet but I have it narrowed down to a few places. I am also going to Bay De Noc for First Ice, can't wait.

Gus called me today. The 4 me and my son left up there for him to mount are ready. He is going to ship them. I can't wait to see how they turned out.

He must be doing the biggest ones first. gringrin

Just had a nice talk with Gus. He sure is a great guy. When I told we'd be back in '09, he got pretty darn excited. The mounts are just about ready but he said all the smallmouth keep getting in the way (i.e. out of freezer room). I guess a 6# bass takes up a little more room than a 2# perch.

I best get some cash on the way up there or he will sell mine quicker than snott.

T.O. I think the return trips will be better than the first cool

Last year I think Otter came up with the idea so get some FM'ers for a Perch Assault in Late Feb early March of 09. I think it would be a blast, I am sure we can fill up Gus's Hotel really quick.

I'm in!

The 4 we left for Gus to mount came today.

Wow are they beautiful. You will not be disapointed when your's show up. It really got my blood pumping when I opened the box. Seems like it was just yesterday when those pigs were coming up thru the hole.

I will try to get some pics.

We are up on Lake Winni for the week trying to add a few more memories. So far it has been great.

I will get some pics when we get back.

You know he sold his baiting supplies. He is strictly running a taxidermy/guide shop. I personally think it was a big mistake because he has to be there anyway to drum up business, but who am I to say.

I promise you he is a straight shooter, he is not going to rip you off, might be a little slow and [PoorWordUsage] you a bit but you will get your mounts. I don't see him alot in the summer but if I run into him I will ask what is going on.

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
