The missus and I finally got a chance to do something for us today, so took a trip to Duluth to see the air show. Clicked about a thousand, and haven't had a chance to go through everything, but quickly picked a few to give Dan a little taste. All with the Canon 40D and 100-400 mm. ISO 400, and had Tv set at 1/1600.

Cool for lil' ol' me, great stuff Ken. I heard it was a bit wet up there Saturday. Looks like Sunday was the day to go! The Angels shots are fantastic especially the last one! And of course the Bulldogs F-16.

Looks like a great day to be doing two of my favorite things...photography and flying! Throw in a fishing trip on the river and you could make it a perfect day! Thanks Ken!

NIce Angels Pics. No Air show in Fargo this year for some reason so I kinda missed out since I am not going to Osh Kosh this year.

.......so sad... ^$#%^4doller gallon@#$@%^...70doller campsites%^*&%^&*lost my seat in a restored conny$%^&*&%.....

Nice Shots though with that 100-400. I have some good shots I took before I bought my 100-400L from last year. I am going to have to dig them up and see what I was missing from last year with my normal zoom.

    • Single payer is in our future whether we like it or not. No sense in fighting it. If the Republicans fail to do anything meaningful with health care, Democrats will fire up the base again with single payer and the Republican run will be short lived. 
    •   All politicians are narcissists, some just more than others and they also like the monetary benefits that go with the position. Trump actually stated at one time he didn't really want to be President, but he was the only one who could do the job.
    •   You might get an official "Make America Great Again" cap. (made in China, of course)      
    •   Then what? Do I get a prize? 
    •   I don't think Trump really wants the job either, and I'll put Obama, Hillary and Gary Johnson in that category too. Sure they all wanted to be president but none of them actually wanted to do the job.
    •   Why don't you show us YOURS then?
    • I was referring to the spool for the ez ducer icing up not your spools on your rods...

    • 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.
