God Bless Herb!

Wow! It is hard to believe it's been 5 years. I remember hearing the live traffic report on the radio before they knew who it was. Is that Tom Chorske with Herb in the second to last photo?

Wow, has it been 5 years? I remember hearing about it on the radio up at the cabin. We came home the next day and passed the spot, kind of eerie as it happened just the day before and all the police paint, tire marks etc. were all still there. I have a vivid memory of a hockey stick stuck in the ground in the median with a Gopher hat on top. Very sad day.

The man was a legend and lives on.

So, are they putting the cables along most of the interstates in MN (in between opposite lanes) because of this tragegy?

No.... they are doing it because it helps with head on collisions by keeping vehicles from crossing the center line and into on coming traffic.

Keep the thread on topic please.

    • Hey not bad clawing they way back up from near bottom this season. Plus hopefully we have one MN team that makes some play off this season! Thanks for the custom meme. I'll be throwing that one out coming up again! It will save pushbutton some time!
    • IKR! My big decision was if I was going to spend one more day ice Fishing or not?
    • Hey how bout those WILD! Wild beat rival Blackhawks, take over Central Division lead
    • Today is clean house day here. $#@! 
    • Well, if I woulda spent some time in the bichfest forum last night I would've been reminded to make other plans than going to work today. So there coulda been some value there.   Got payroll approved and saw I was on holiday today so I left.    Still not used to having this day off.
    • Packers in the NFC Championship game, Lions in the playoffs, Viking eliminated early. At least you were right about the Bears. 
    • Just a reminder that today (Monday Jan. 16th) is Monday. It is best observed in an individual manner with each of us according it the solemnity we believe it deserves. And keep in mind that Tuesday is coming up.  And then Wednesday. And after that it is Thursday.   Don't look for a point to this post because there isn't one. 
    • 1.16.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello once again from the Northwest Angle!   We're back with another fishing report this week. It was another cold week out on the ice with temperatures below zero for most of the week. We should be out of the cold stretch for a while now and the weather for the next couple weeks is looking really good!   On the Minnesota side, we have our houses on Rabbit Ears, Four Blocks and Little Oak. All have been producing fish. Out at Little Oak, we are fishing in 24-28 feet of water off of structure and out in the mud. At Four Blocks, we are fishing in 22-27 feet of water and have found some very nice slot fish coming up the holes. At Rabbit Ears, we are still in 21-26 and it is still producing buckets of fish consistently. Best colors have been pink and gold tipped with a minnow.   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good. Limits of nice crappies have been coming back every day with some being in that 15-16" range. We are fishing in 27-33 feet for those, with small tungsten jigs tipped with a minnow or plastic. Walleyes have been very consistent in 25-30 feet of water on the Canadian side, also. Same jig colors as the US side, gold and pink tipped with a minnow.   Until next week everyone, stay warm and tight lines! Forrest Huset
