Well, we are back safe and sound from the annual family vacation. We had a great time even though the weather was not the best. We can't controll that cry

I believe it rained every day minus thursday. Some days a few showers, other days all morning.

We caught lots of fish. The walleyes were quite active the first 3 days. 2 hour morning and evening outings yeilded about a dozen fish. Then a ten day low slid out and a high pressure moved in. We still picked a few here and there but it was tougher. By friday they were getting active. The smallies were numerous and scrappy. We got into some nice gills on our walleye spots also.

Swimming wasnt bad, water temp was around 75ish...

Heres a bunch of pictures...

On the way up we stopped at the mexico exit for some breakfast and got to see a full double rainbow. I couldnt fit the whole thing in the photo though...


We got up there and unpacked in time for Tank and I to hit the water for a bit. Motored out to the spot on the spot, his first cast he was into one...


A nice 15 incher...


A few cast later a 21...


I got in on things too...


My niece Emma's first fish...



One morning Beth and I took a boat ride down through the lake to fish the river at the outflow.

A little fog on the water and a nice reflection...



The river is loaded with these. Most run 9-12 inches but with some bigger mixed in. She probably caught literally 100 in a few hours plus I played with lots on the flyrod grin


Only allowed 10 pictures in a post. Continued....

Tank with a darkie...


A toothy...


A few life lessons with Grandpa and Uncle Jay...

1) real minnows taste better than preserved ones. She may or may not have chewed on the minnow a bit? Those of you that know me can guess which one sick


2) Drink it fast or it gets warm.


3) its ok to kiss fish, preferably walleyes.


4) Dont throw rocks in the outhouse or you'll get freckles.


more picts later, im wooped...

Awesome, I'm starting to look forward to this trip! Great pics, your neice is a cutie. You and Tank covered some important lessons all kids should learn. Those blue gills must have been hungry to hit buck tails.

    • Whatever happened to reinhardt1?  He caught a lot of heat down here because he was so enthralled with Michelle Bachmann, but when he left Sillytown, he moved to the cooking thread, and he was very knowledgeable about cutting and preparing meat, since he was a butcher by trade.  I never spent much time in the cooking forum, but I would read reinhardt's posts occasionally.   I didn't mind Lmitout, but I've been frequenting these forums since the wild & wooly days - back when Jackpine Rob & the crew was on here.  Lmitout was pretty tame in comparison to some of those guys...          
    • Fun time at the river
    • There you go again, calling names.   "senile elders"  "brainwashed baby boomers"   "need the blue pill"     Are you serious dude?   And you wonder why folks don't take your alternative chiropractic talk seriously? 
    • some are still here, just not as busy posting.
    • The administration I referred to was not the Obama administration.  Don't edit me when quoting.  It was the HSO administration. 
    • Like I said I pop in from time to time , not like before. I do remember you rundrave stepping in and commenting on all the babble when the cooking thread crashed, you think that was the only babbling going on here? Hey, your a mod and we're just trying to cool things down, I get that.  In my opinion it came down to the cooking thread was dominating the rest and some didn't like it.  But if you want an answer on politics ,you don't have to look hard..
    • Rage, ok, thats funny. More so making light of rebels transparency regarding not being able to handle differing opinions and allowing his homeboys to throw out as much smack talk as me, only i come a little harder and sensative people struggle with their emotions.  Hence deleting a post with no rules breaking.     This whole post was a story, made up to start something. Nice troll work OP, i knew it a long time ago but played along cause it was fun but now its just a bunch of senile elders or brainwasher baby boomers that cant exchange without feeling like they were talked down to. So soft and zero passion for anything worthwhile, thats why you all need the blue pill.    
    •   Well shistter,  I had to WiKi the curry wurst so it looks like a real deal!   Currywurst (German pronunciation: [ˈkœʁiˌvʊʁst][1]) is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage (German: Bratwurst) typically cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste, itself topped with curry powder, or a ready-made ketchup seasoned with curry and other spices. The dish is often served with French fries.
