Hi guys!! I see you're holding the fort down nicely! I am already up at the cabin since I took both Thurs & Fri. off. It's really nice up in Deer River. It's supposed to be around 79 degrees tomorrow and then high 80's Sat and Sun. HOT!! We'll get some fishing in and will report back how we did. Have a great July 4th everyone! laugh

Can you go over and mow the yard, while your up there. Never mind just did last Saturday during the hurricane.

Lisa please catch some fish this time.

I would give you the hot spot we caught them at last weekend, but I am sure Jim has a few already.

Have FUN

G.C.

Lisa,

I'll be in Walker this weekend. We are planning on going up to Sand Lake on Friday, but not sure what time.

We will be in Grand Rapids on Saturday afternoon for a birthday party.

Drop me an email and let me know if you will be around.

I'm sorry I wasn't checking the forum this weekend!

We had some friends from the cities up this weekend. We fished everyday but with only minimal success. I caught one 22" walleye on Friday and multiple tiny bass and sunnies on Saturday but no keepers! It's so hard to go back to work after a great weekend isn't it? frown

I never wet a line this weekend. I spent Friday weeding the garden, hitting a flea market, and visited a friend who recently had knee surgery. Saturday drove down to Mora, visited my sister, walked around her garden for 2 hours, went to Menards in Cambridge, loaded 120 patio bricks and 10 bags of mulch on my trailer and headed back home. Sunday more weeding (haven't touched my gardens this year, they looked like jungles) spread the 10 bags of mulch and then crashed on the yard swing for about an hour. Now that the weekend crowd is gone home I will hit the lakes during the week. On Saturday I passed Knife Lake, and you couldn't have squeezed a mo-ped into the parking area at the public access. My friends lake was full of jet skis and big power boats racing around. Even they weren't planning on going out. I hope everyone else had a safe and very fun filled weekend.

We fished a lake by the cabin on Saturday and there was ALOT of traffic on it. Barb, I'm just so darned envious of you. I can't wait for the day I can get out on a nice quiet Monday to fish. We fished Winnie on Friday and it was absolutely DEAD! We got a prime spot at the access and only about 10 boats on the mid lake humps. There was maybe 4 boats in front of Highbanks.

I left on Thursday evening and got to Park Rapids around 9pm. On Friday I tried to get some fishing in but helped the youngest neices and nephews fish instead. Thought about doing some night fishing after the fireworks but was tired. Saturday after an all day party I tossed a sucking minnow out and caught a nice large mouth bass (pictures soon.) Sunday helped the kids fish again and tried to get a fish with weight for my middle neice because she wanted to catch something big, but no luck. I left one of my fishing poles for her to use and try to catch a big one. Had fun with the kids but wished I could have caught more myself.

I am now working 11 hour days for this week because my boss has the week off. Maybe I will get out this next weekend?

Hope

Just joshing...I actually think it's going to be super small since many seem to be previously busy. And that's ok too!

    • Thanks for the offer and info.  I will have to get out and look around at some. I'm picky and willing to wait till I find that cherry rig to come around so I might not be getting one for a while. Which is OK because I'm in no hurry.
    • little early fer that fish aint it!!!!!! I wanna see pictures of you camping come tomorrow morning when da blizzard comes thru!!!!!!!!!!!! nice pictures though!!!!!!!!!!!
    • whitefish maybe? 
    • If I understand correctly this only for bows. I have a crossbow and from what I understand it is considered a firearm. Is that the case? My son has a bow and has the archery tag.
    • so ... dillon has a bird to enter and 1957 is still hunting? looks like we are in good shape, but lot of guys still hunting in MN and WI, i assume   ended my season friday. got the blind set up before the shower started. it quit right before sunrise time and there was lots of gobbling on the roost a couple hundred yards away but none where i heard them close by when scouting a couple days earlier. a few distant gobbles on the ground, then nothing after the rain and wind picked up again. finally saw a hen step out of the woods about 830 and start heading toward me. soft yelps kept her coming, then out steps a big tom and several more hens heading my way but when they got to an opening in the fence from the stalk field into another timber, the tom paused, i had the bead on him, decided it was too far, and then they were gone the rain quit a half hour later and i ramped up the calling with some louder yelps and cutts. a few minutes later a head comes over a rise in the field and its a solo tom. he ignored the dekes and headed toward the fence gap where the others went, stopped and fanned without gobbling, but some soft yelps, clucks and purrs kept him coming my way. dropped him at 40 yards after stepping it off to where he lay, i kept going to where the other tom left the field and it was 55 big steps, so glad i didnt shoot went 23, 10, 1 but the rain cut loose again on the way back to the truck so i didnt take pictures  
    • If you were anywhere close to southern Minny I would invite you over and let you drive mine and show you the things I look for both in the jeep and plow since mine seems pretty close to what you are looking for. If you have any questions PM me.
    • Good luck PFUNK! Looking like that will be my next day out too. forecast looks good as well!
    • I think the TJ might be the best choice with the 4.0 which is what I did.I bought the plow used after the fact. I got the plow for 1200 but the wiring was not good nor was the mount so I had a new custom, heavier duty mount made at a fab shop and I bought a brand new wiring kit from Western. I also bought all stainless bolts for it so there are no rust issues with them. Wiring the plow was a task. I basically had to remove the entire interior including console, seats and many dash parts to run the wiring.   One thing to consider- There is really very little room for much of anything in them. Running new wires, adding a speaker anywhere or even having 2 guys, 2 guns, a dog and a cooler is a tight fit. The back seat works for kids but not adults and mostly I take my back seat out so I have at least some room to put stuff. Running the wiring to run the plow took probably 8 hours or more spread over a few days and for a bigger guy it's pretty much impossible to reach under the dash and run wires,connect to fuse blocks even with the seat removed.    But the ability to take off the top and cruise the gravel roads with no doors while hunting is not possible in basically any other vehicle except maybe a Manx Dune buggy which has also been on my bucket list and those aren't 4x4.
