Why oh why

Recommended Posts

Why am I up at 2:00 AM? We just had round after round of some of the worst storms I have seen in a long time. Funnel cloud spotted by Wabana lake around 9:00pm, that's only 2 miles from me. I was out fishing and thought I heard thunder, but couldn't see the clouds. At least not until I got off the lake and was headed home. This is a shot of the clouds as the first storm was rolling in. Torrential downpours, pea size hail 3 different times, continuous lightning, and I was just able to finally get on the internet. Satellite stinks.

We had one storm roll through in the middle of the night. We rushed down to shut windows and after it was all said and done for, we got 3/10ths of an inch of rain.

The gold ruler...in August is fine unless Jim needs it and then I'll let you know. I doubt it though. Too bad we couldn't get much use out of it on Saturday. frown

Didn't get to use it on Monday either, the one walleye I did catch snapped my line right at the boat. Was probably about 16 inches.

Barb you can just give it to Lisa at the GTG in Aug. Too bad about the walleye cause that one was a perfect eater.

What I want to know is what the heck is going on here! I moved up here because I heard they don't get a lot of severe weather in this area, did someone lie to me?

Give me a hurricane over a tornado any day. At least I have the option of leaving.

Hey I used to live right by that lake in Grand Rapids. Glad I wasn't there lastnight, looks like some scary stuff! I kinda miss the Grand Rapids area, but only for the fishing. Hoping to get up there in August and catch some bass and Northerns! And maybe have supper at Forest Lake. That would make for a nice weekend.

personnally i would take a good old blizzard before any kind of summer storm because of the risk of a whole lot less damage that summer storms create. sure you may have to shovel a bit but for the most part you dont need to repair/ fix things like summer storms can do.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
