Weekend plans....

19 posts in this topic

Wednesday night....close enough to be thinking about weekend plans.

I'm looking at a combo bass & 'ski trip to East/West Rush on Saturday, then picking one of a few metro lakes on Sunday for 'skis, either pure or tigers.

Little tip: Metro lakes are pretty empty when there's a Vikes game on!

What's everyone else looking at?

I can pick you up at the airport and we can head to 'tonka, as you'll fly in over it.......tell the Mrs you were delayed.

Cali trips suck, done it too many times, not a lot of Esox love in So Cal.....

Men's weekend golf tourny in WI, no fishing but plenty of drinking and partying. No complaints here it's one of the few weekends a year when I can get away with my buddies and throw down like we are kids again.

Good luck to those who get on the water.

North, somewhere, in the never-ending search...

After our weekends I have to go back to the work schedule just to get some sleep. If I was only 10 years younger I could probably get by on 3-4 hrs a night like I used to!

i think i'll go down to northfield on saturday and shore/wade fish. theres a little spillway dam just below water st. downtown. take as many minnows as i want and still run out pretty much everytime. catch a mess of every kind of fish too, carp, white bass, crappie, flathead, channel, sauger, walleye, northern, muskie on occation, suckers, nice smallies are aplenty, and other fish too. i use lures also. place is amazing for numbers of fish, and there's some real decent ones if i get them before a smaller one grabs on.every cast is at least a hit... only drawback is the water is a good 15 feet or so below, lol. but the water should be shallow enough i can go in the water at 2nd st. and walk down (up but down at that point), kind of weird walking south going upstream., and fish from under the water st. bridge. who knows maybe i'll see my old buddy ''huge snapper'' again. head looks like a freakin' tree trunk. sometimes he pops up a foot away and says hi. that's always fun. anyway i'm in for some action this weekend, good luck everybody.

I will be fishing Ottertail and Becker Counties Sunday through Thursday while I wind down the lake place for the season. Probably have an empty seat a couple days. Holler if anyone in the western part of the state want to beat the water into submission. copterjohn@gmail.com

Work frown

September is a washout for me. My truck was at the body shop the last week from getting rear-ended= no tow vehicle. Then a week straight of 12 hr shifts followed by a 2 week elk hunt in Idaho.

Will hopefully be hitting Miltona sometime this weekend. Daughter has a tennis tournament all day on Saturday, so with any luck, it will be done early enough to try and sneak out for couple of hours on Sat. If not, have to try and do it on Sunday before the work week starts again.

    • 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.
