3 posts in this topic

It sure is hot out but one can sure see the "signs" of the next season.....the goldenrods are flourishing...the grasses along the highways are turning brown....some foliage and ferns are turning yellow/brown....certain species of dragonflies make themselves known in late summer and early fall....yes I even saw some early red fall maple leaves (by Skibo hwy #16)....I welcome the seasonal changes...great for those photos! grin

birds have been stuffing themselves on this chokecherry bush....

Ah man.... fall is my favorite season of the year.

Although we usually make the annual fall trip to Basswood Lake, this year I will miss it due to my first little one on the way.... bitter sweet for sure.

However, I do plan to pull the camper out along the Mississippi for a week and half long trip. With my gal at 7 months, we just don't want to be too far from expert medical help should the need arise.

Thanks for posting your 'teaser' to the fall season. Your images are always are treat to view.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
