needing a 4th for Canada, '09

8 posts in this topic

we are looking for a 4th guy for Canada fishing during the 1st week of June, 09. Our usual guy will not be able to make it this year. We fly out of Armstrong, Ontario. I travel from western South Dakota and meet up with 2 others in the Albert Lea area and drive from there. If interrested contact me, GRNKPR @AOL.COM. There are a few cans and can nots.

thanks for the replies, fellas. About the only "can not" is alcohol. Us 3 don't drink besides it takes up weight on the float plane. 100 pounds per person. Two of us smoke and one "dips". A guy should be in reasonable physical condition. The portage lake is a pretty easy 15 minute woodland trail walk but, we do fish pretty hard all day long. Two of us are in thier 50's, I'm in my mid 60's. We are on two lakes, Deardon & Lavoie. We eat really good so any diet restrictions could present a problem. Ya hafta be able to operate a outboard motor, 12 foot Lunds with 9.9HP Mercs. As far as costs are, the outfitter's fee last year was 1298.00, US. That includes modern cabin, boat/gas and float plane, either an Otter or a Beaver. Misc costs averaged 270.00 which was gas, food, gratuities, leeches, overnite stay before flight out morning. It's a 7 day stay. Meals along the way are pay as you go. Gas from south central Minn is split. It came out to about 100.00 each. So a guy can figure around 1600.00 not including your license which is 35.00, I think. Walleyes and Northerns are all that are in the lakes. 15- 20 pounders are not unusual. The web site where we go is "Northern outposts". We travel from New Richland, Minn thru Duluth and cross at Grand Portage. A 12 hour drive to Armstrong. Best to have a passport and no felonies, including stateside DWI's. I am not a commercial operator, just lookin for a 4th fisherman. my number is 605-393-0646 or 605 430 8513.

aw heck, Tony. I fully understand the $$$ thing. To be brutally honest I get "spenders remorse" about it sometime too. But, I've learned over my years to never count the money ya spend on vises or hobbies....LOL. Yes, I've really gettin hyped up about the Winnie trip. We are gonna change arrangements this year because the facilities at Dixon Lake have kinda gone down hill since it was sold off 2 years ago. So we are gonna stay at Wlliams Narrows which will save alotta time and mileage haulin the boat back and forth and loadin/unloadin everyday from Dixon to Winnie. Thanks for the call the other day. We had a nice conversation.

Pac

    • Check out the 2017 Obsession Hurcan 366fps and 3.9 lbs!
    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
