THE HOLY GRAIL!!!!!!!!!

8 posts in this topic

Was just going through my LOTW charts and it struck me. During Operation Muskie, I had the chance to see the HOLY GRAIL of maps. While fishing, I got the chance to hold and look at Dick Pearson's map with all of his spots marked! There were so many spots, notes and colors on it, the thing looked like some Monet painting. He had loaned it to Chad Cain so we could fish some new spots......pretty good spots on that map. I doubt I will ever get the chance to see it again, but it is a sight that everyone should see.

I think I would have had the shakes if I were holding Dick Pearson's map of LTOW.

Naw.....Dick is a great guy and even better friend. I will find all his spots out as I make him take me fishing every summer. Heck....fishing with him during Operation Muskie, he took us to a couple of spots he said he wouldn't even take his best friends!!! Now with him doing that, I will respect his map and make my own over time with Dick's help. The vet that we fished with during Operation Muskie was a huge fan of Dick's movie, so Dick took us to every spot that is in the movie with the exception of one that wasn't on LOTW. Pretty cool thing to do!

Yeah Bret....I think the overall experience and the shoulders you all got to rub up there are pretty amazing! Dick basically came out of retirement, if you will, to take part, says a lot about his character and your efforts and the event.

That all said....I would have liked a peek at that map!

Makes a point to all us "common folk" if a guy that's caught more muskies than I've ever seen still goes thru the process of maintaining a meticilous and detailed map. Shows how much preparation and off the water work goes behind the success we all see from the best in the business.

Thanks for sharing Bret!

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
