I better fish hard while I can!

8 posts in this topic

I just found out today that I need to have shoulder surgery. July 28th, so I am going to have to fish hard until then, because it sounds like a rather painful recovery. It is going to kill me to have to "fish" through the forums only for a while. But I am already concocting ideas as to how I can managed to fish while I am handicapped, like cast with my left arm and switch the reels on my rods around so I can reel with the other right arm, and do all of the big motions with my good arm. Oh well, atleast close to 5 years of nagging pain is finally solved and hopefully will be taken care of. After recovery, though, the fish better watch out!!

In the meantime I have three flathead trips planned for within the next week, so I guess I will get them when I can hopefully.

Rotator cup surgery? I have had both done and its wasn't too bad but the recovery time is a little bit.

No not rotator, a torn labrum. Plus hyperextension of ligaments.

A torn labrium isnt as bad as the rotator cup, shorter recovery time!

I guess according to him, the tear isn't the part that will be so bad, but the "reconstruction" of the shoulder capsule. Atleast that's what the Dr. said. Although, I am not looking forward to having titanium anchor screws drilled into my bone either!

You'll never feel it Andy. Your a tough dude. You should be fishing about the same time I am.

Naw man you will be like me. I've got screws and every other thing in my leg from jumping in a night mission. You should back up in no time flat. You'll just need to start with channel and work you way back up to flats. Think of it as rehab, the best kind you can get.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
