I'm looking all around the house for our ralley monkey, sneaky little guy I don't think he wants to go fishing but little does he know he doesn't have a chance once I find him and tie him to the bow of the boat. grin If I can't find him Clifford the Big Red Dog will do!!!

For those who don't know, the monkey originated out of the Belle Plain Cat League as the "boooby" prize for the individual that had the worst luck for the season.

It is a very large orange monkey that Shamu was proudly given ownership of at the year-end party for the league last year to hopefully bring him better luck this year.

Some say it is lucky, others say he is cursed. He was with us at the Sturgeon excursion and seemed to bring luck to those around him.......but I don't think he likes catfish.

The little guy has spent some time with me, and Darren, and Aanderud this year during the cat season and the results speak for themselves........

FEAR THE MONKEY as he will not bring good things into the boat.

The monkey only works for his rightful owner. So Shamu needs to step up to the plate and take back what is rightfully his. If not, he is going to miss out on the good luck that could be his.

I will tell you that I will not allow that freak of nature in my boat again this year. That monkey is a curse to all but Shamu.

Kyle has the pimp hat.

I haven't seen it since the year end party. Not sure, but I would guess the hat has better mojo than the monkey.

I was getting a little worried that the monkey would end up meeting his demise before his time was truly up. Thanks WWG for setting the record straight on our little friend as Scott is his true owner and friend till the year end party.

But, then again, wait till you see what I got for this year's lucky recipient winkgrin

Ok, that darn Monkey found it's way into WWG's boat tonight. I don't want to see that thing ever again 1-8 on the hooksets frown

We had to do a little maintenance on the trestle passage tonight. A tree fell over and blocked the only path. We were out there with saws in hand.

It still is very hairy and if you have any thought that your motor might have issues, do not go upstream. This is not a passage you want to float back down through.

See you all on Sat!

Well it was almost game over for the gathering. 3/4's of the bridge has been blocked by a logjam for the last year or so. The other 1/4 has been spooky anyway......

Now a 3 foot diameter cottonwood fell across the last 50 feet of opening. Darren and I obtained a saw from Mr. Aanderud and proceeded to make about an 8 foot gap.

So going upstream is still a little spooky........but going through that gap downstream with a 10 mph current pushing diagonally across it is just plain scary!!!!!

You would NOT make it through there without power as the current in front of the gap going downriver is moving from right to left and you can't hit the hole unless you're moving at a good pace.

This is still passable for experience river guys with reliable boats...

But I would be very tentative about telling any "newbie" to try getting through there.

Nice job fellas. Sounds like the hooksetting was a bit off last night. Was that due to sore arms after sawing? Too bad I don't have a chainsaw that doesn't require 120v a.c. power. Did the guy who landed his boat just after I left the landing show up and help you out, or did he go downstream?

Thanks for cleaning it up, it'll make the gathering a bit more enjoyable.

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
