My interesting vacation

48 posts in this topic

Where did you go DeeDee? I read in the photo forum that you and your 6 y.o. were jet skiing?? grin FUN!

I had a very interesting vacation. 1) I learned not to drink BEFOR going into the casino, 2) I learned to ALWAYS hold on to the jetski when a 6 yr old is driving, and 3) I learned what NOT to do when puttin the boat in the river! Not even going to talk about #1 sick #2 My husband and youngest son (Angelo) sprayed us with the jet ski just as Nicolas hit a wave went airborn gunned it and threw me off the back of the ski blush And #3 well, lets just say I'll pay more attention next time. cry

Lisa - It did hurt quite a bit, but once the rain stopped we had a great time.

Hammer - you and everyone else will probably think I'm a dumba-- for doing but ever get in a big hurry and not really think about what your doing? Well thats what happens when you losen the strap from inside the boat, the boat falls, crank slips out of hand and WHACKS arm. blush

I think everyone's been there DeeDee. I know I've had a bruse or two from that. Thing it, is usually only happens once cause it's a painful lesson to learn.

Mine involved the snowmobile trailer and then slipping off the back of it when it tipped-ouchies on the shins and then I bonked my head on a the ground too. Musta looked really graceful! frown Even Arctic Armor couldn't save the day on that one. wink

Don't feel dumb. Most people just won't share their stories like us DeeDee! laugh

I can imagine that was followed by a few words that would trigger the word filter on the forum here blush Ouch that hadda hurt shocked

And don't feel stupid...the only ones of us that hasn't done something of that nature are the ones who sit home all the time watching the boober tube. All it takes is for the brain to slip into neutral for a second or two and the what the h***, son of a b%%%%% or worse usually follows grin

That avatar is enough to trigger an epileptic fit. Just kidding, does this mean it is time for me to ditch mine for a new one? I haven't caught any bragging fish to put up yet. Maybe this weekend.

Great avatar! Bananas, pickles, and carrots...I won't touch that one!

About a month ago, my father-in-law was cutting some boards with a circular saw. He had one small piece left to cut...and held it in on hand and cut with the other (not smart...and he knew it wasn't). Well, the saw grabbed and pulled his fingers into the saw...cutting two ends of his fingers off. They are growing back...but what a way to learn.

Me, well...let's see. Cutting wood and in a hurry...and I poured bar oil into the gas tank and added gas to the oil. Caught myself when putting the caps on.

Also this last month, grabbed a bad electrical cord and got shocked. Thought...did that really happen?...and grabbed it again. Yep, bad cord.

Can't think of anything else right now...at least not that happened lately.

Oh jeez, Hammer Handle, that's just crazy about the cords!! Live and learn right?

I tried cracking the seal on a juice bottle with a paring knife and ended up in surgery repairing a nerve and getting sewn back up! The scar looks like a thick, extra lifeline on my palm....it was soooo gross and stupid! I was casted for 12 weeks since palms don't heal up very fast!

    • Well another year in the books for us on Winnipeg.  We fished Thursday-Saturday, just left right away Sunday morning without fishing.  Accessed out of Warner.  Thursday access was great, but by Sunday morning, it was sloppy with some deep ruts and puddles.  Lots of trucks parked out along the road.  All water depths measured from the bottom of ice.  Water was dirty straight out from the mouth, but clear out deep and farther west.  Eagles nest was dirty at 11.5fow but clear at 12.5fow.  Seemed to be an "umbrella effect" with the dirty water and the river pushing it straight out.   Thursday- We went straight north of Warner about 4 miles and started in 17fow.  Only caught a couple, then moved east to the ridge in 19fow.  Caught a few more small ones and one guy had a 25"er.  From there we tried a few spots out deep, 22-24fow.  Very slow out deep, only caught 2-3 in the couple hours we were out there.  Mid afternoon we headed south to the ridge in 20fow, pretty slow again.  In the evening we moved back NW to the spot on the ridge we were at in the morning and had a better evening bite there.  I had a nice one get off halfway up, but other than that all smaller ones.  Every spot we tried we caught at least 1-2 fish, but it was a grind.  Ended the day with 26 fish between 4 guys but only one over 20".  Best baits were pink/silver flutter spoons and purple rattle baits.   Friday-  Started out by the ridge again in 19fow caught 5-6 in that spot.  Friday started pretty slow for us.  By the later part of the day we were on the North side of the ridge in 19.5fow, right were the ridge turned to go North.  We found better fishing about 150-200 meters off the ridge.  Ended up sitting on one smaller area for the rest of the day and did fairly well.  Ended up with close to 60 fish between 4 guys on the day, with the biggest coming right at the end, a nice 27.5"er.  Best baits were purple rattle baits.  Gold rattle baits did fairly well earlier in the day.   Saturday- We woke up early and tried in 16fow right at first light, only marked a few with no biters.  Moved out to the North side of the ridge and same thing, managed to catch a few but only after going through the whole tackle box to find something they liked.  Moved about a half mile to the east and sat in the shelters to get out of the wind until about 330.  Had a few bigger schools of fish come through, at one point 2 of the guys caught 7 fish in 5 minutes.  The bite seemed to get better as the day went on.  We moved back to the west about half a mile to where we were Friday evening.  The bite there was good and we figured out that the fish wanted blue and silver rattle baits and blue and silver spoons.  We ended up catching 20-30 fish in that one spot from 330-dark.  In that time we had a 26", 26.5", and a 27".  So if we count that 27.5" from Friday, that was 4 fish 26" or bigger out of that one little spot.     Ice was in great shape.  Travel was very easy.  Crossing the ridge on ATVs wasn't that bad at all, used the ramps to cross only 2 times and found other spots to cross without ramps.  All 3 days the bite seemed to get better as the day wore on.  Most consistent bite for us was 200pm or later in 19-20 fow on the North side of the ridge.  What the fish wanted to bite on seemed to change by the hour.   I think we will be back next year, but only 1 trip, not 2.
