Larry's Lost anchor

Larry's Lost Anchor:

LarrysLostAnchor8-6-08.jpg

I've been meaning to post this picture for some time now. You had to be there to appreciate the Kodak moment. On the 6th of August Larry Haugh invited me out to the Minnesota River for a flathead trip. This was my first trip to the Minnesota River and Larry was a great guide.

We were running up the river and he was giving me the nickel tour and as we approached this creek mouth on the north side of the river, Larry casually mentioned that he lost an anchor there during high water. He was telling me how it got hung up on some drowned timber and he couldn't get it loose. He pointed out where he was anchored and how high the water was at the time. As we cruised by he said, my anchor should be right about there and he pointed a finger at the mud. Well, low and behold - there was the very tip of his anchor sticking out of the mud. He coasted the boat up onto the mud at the creek mouth, takes off his shoes, and slips and slides his way up to his anchor. He had a heck of a time digging it out of the mud but I managed to capture his moment of triumph as he hoists his prize anchor into the air.

If you ever get the chance to handle one of Larry's anchors bring along a back brace. Those things are killers. Hey Larry - I forgot to tell you at the time "Congratulations on getting your anchor back".

I know of one other member that has stripped down to his skinnies to go "anchor diving"....a little digging in the older posts should provide evidence.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
