What a nice article. You sound like such a nice family. I dont even read our papers here they never have anything nice to say. I need to subscribe to your papers up there since one day I WILL move back there.

Carolyn, you have such a great family. I commend you for having a green farm! This is my favorite quote of the article from your husband,

Quote:
"We try to be at all the kids events. It's a balance, but I think it's important for our family to keep that as a priority."

Hi Fishin Chicks,

I read the article also in the Duluth paper several weeks ago.

I think it is fantastic that you and your sister both got your captains licenses! And even better that you started a business together chartering. Grand Marais is a fantastic area. And I hear you do get some nice really Kings up there as Thunder Bay plants alot of kings, you probably get a bunch of those that navigate down, maybe?

My huband has his Coast Guard 6 pack Charter Fishing license also, he encourages me to get mine, but I need a bit more time docking, etc. I have spent many, many hours driving the bigger boats on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior in rough weather, fog, etc. I am familiar with the electronics and radar and have learned alot of the "rules of the road" from the hubby. Maybe someday I will take the class.

Are you fishing up there all summer, or are you down in SW MN for the rest of the summer?

Heidi-

The article you are referring to is not my family. We live in SW Minnesota year round. I signed up as "fishinchicks" long before I knew about those girls. I have two daughters that like to fish with me, that is how we came up with our name.

I have to say, though I have not responeded to a lot of posts lately, I have read about what you are doing up there. Sounds really cool. Your hubby encouraging you to get your CG license in similar to mine wanting me to get my CDL driver's license so I can haul grain in the semi. I, however, have resisted the idea. smile

Nice to have you on FM!

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,

Thanks for the update. Sorry for the mix up.

Getting your Semi Truck drivers License would be great!

Thanks for the welcome.

Heidi

    • the make knives to cut them smaller!!!!!!!
    • Riiiiight... How come they didn't produce this document 8 years ago...
    • I would have started out at a young age, teaching them right from wrong. And that regardless of their gender tell them that I love them. When you make a mistake, you own up to it and be accountable. You do the crime, you do the time. And I that I still love them.
    • I thought you were AGAINST fake news now?
    • That's a good little tip.  I'll have to give it a try.  
    • I may not be an economist but it doesn't take a genius to realize that accumulating debt at the rate we are now accumulating it is a recipe for disaster. Debt is more than doubling every 8 years. There is no sign that debt accumulation will even slow down in the future and there is definitely no indication that we will start paying it down, unless you believe the Donald when he said he was going to eliminate debt in 8 years before he said he wasn't going to do that any more.   As Purple indicated above if you are OK with saddling your grandchildren with all of the debt that your and my generations accumulated and can sleep well at night then good for you. I think the party of accountability should start holding someone accountable but you and they just want to continue kicking the can down the road. What do you care? You won't live forever, right? Might as well let someone else worry about it.   Are all government policies rooted in fact? Everything that you or the party that you constantly support proposes is able to be defended by facts? What about all the morality laws, nothing based from religion is factual. Are abortion laws based on facts? How do you know if a woman should have ultimate control of their body? What are the facts that support it? How about gay rights laws? What facts do you have that support not allowing gay couples the same rights as heterosexual couples? What are the facts that support it being a bad idea that I buy a car or a 6 pack of beer on Sundays in Minnesota?   There are plenty of laws and Policies that are enacted by all types of politicians that are unable to be defended with facts.
    • Geez...we must fish the same lakes  Both of these posts above have become common now that "ice castling" has become the latest fad and everyone and their mother is on the ice.  There is an abnormally large % of those with the shiny new toy who chose only to save money on their generator, but spend as much as they possibly can on their truck and fish house.  I can spot them from a mile away...3-4 guys get out of the truck, they circle around the fish house a few times wondering how to get it lowered to the ice, then they finally figure it out, and 2 of the guys offload the residential home backup generator and carry it 100 yards away, 150 pulls later they get it fired up, and I only know because it's so loud it rattles the dishes in my cabinets.
