Nice job DC. I've been busy getting up to speed with the Cubscouts. Seems I'm the new Cubmaster in Floyd. Yeah, Floyd. Long story! Also helping a little the Boyscouts. Another camping trip this weekend to Kingsley. At least I get to fish! Other than that, just getting things in order around here since I've been feling better.

Tim, take it easy on that knee! Knee surgery sucks, trust me. Hope to get up on the Salmon myself soon. Who's up for a trip? Walleye, ah yes! Tim, we never did get in one of those fall evening trips to the shore. Maybe this year.

Hope everyone is doing well and I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon.

Dad and I fished the river today. There are fish in the river but definatly not loaded. They are prety spread out and we never found any big pods. Wanderd around the river for the beter part of the day and we tangled with about 15 salmon. None landed but thats fine, we dont keep them anyways...

Tanks outta here saturday for a week with the guys up in canada chasing walleyes. I cant make it this year. With the new job I probably coould have gotten the time off but it would have messed up when my health insurance kicked in...

Todd forgot to eat dinner before we went out but he got some nice eyes for din din tomorrow, after a couple of hours looking for them we found a small school of them. Todd out caught me 2 - 1 and we missed as many we caught. I'm calling these the Thunder show sposored by Cabelski...

Great job Timmy and Todd. Glad you guy's got into some!! Cindy and I were going to head up Friday afternoon but I got admitted into the hospital Thursday afternoon. Had another problem with the MRSA Cellulitis! This time in my left nostril crycry I wouldn't wish that on anyone!!! Anyway, congrats on knocking the Cherry Off the night fishing in the Lund guy's. Glad to see your enjoying it Todd, great boats aren't they?!

See you all soon! Tim take it easy on the Knee brother, no surgury is fun, especially on your walking sticks!

Tight lines All,

Steve

Good job guys. Todd next investment - a rubber net . . . they are great for not getting hooks caught in them. Well had no takers except Kyle Saturday morning . . .did not miss much. Kyle got 4 or 5 LMBs and I had a couple strike at a frog. Was thinking that today's tournament would be a long one. Just the opposite, but then we got lucky. Had a school to ourself all day. Big fish for me was a 4.87 smallie. We weighed in 15.54; good enough for second and enough to defray the cost of the tournament and gas. All fish on gold top water.

Cellulitus is bad stuff, makes my knee feel like a hang nail in comparison. Steve we didn't get anything last night a couple of taps and zero hookups... We fished till 9 p.m. They just weren't there, water temp dropped two to three more degrees and the win instead of being east south east was out of the west and then switched to a north wind... Anyways we got skunked. My knees starting to feel a bit better and I am encouraged. Think I'll consider PT next week. It's gonna be some good fall fishing with my mind off the football team, no heartbreak this year they stunk early on and often, hello first round draft pick..

Good job the other nite guys!

Todd - the job is going well. The last two weeks were rough as I was doing 30 hours a week at old and new job. This week is just the new one. Alot more responsibility that I initally thought but its all good. I worked about 13 hours today to free up time later in the week if a good run of salmon come in the river. What I really need is to get paid to hunt, fish, and pick on Timmy. Speaking of Timmy crazy, we all need to take up a collection or hold a chicken BBQ to raise some cash to sent him to cameragirl school. Its gonn me a long fall full of duplicate picts, fuzzy macros, and headless fisherman... frownwinkcool

We had a nice weekend here. I was gonna take Beth up to the Salmon River but its a GoonFest on weekends and not alot of fish in the river. We headed south instead and went to Cabelas. I dropped over a hundred bills and didnt get much. A few flytying things, a jig box, and about 3 lbs of lead sinkers. The SR eats sinkers and the new tin stuff stinks! So since NY banned the sale of lead I have a new excuse for a cabelas run. Aslo picked up a bunch of YBD's in the bargain cave for a buck each. We stayed overnite down there and toured up through the Poconos on sunday. Went on a neat scenic train ride alon the Lehigh river. With the leaves still full and green the scenery wasnt what it will be in a few weeks. We'll probably head back with our mountain bikes though as I found some good info on some cool trails. Heres on pict aboard the train...

Jay - Cabela's run nice... YBD's in the bargain bin? They must be sick, now that's a great buy..

Chris did you guys fish Sunday night, we had a couple of taps but the fish weren't there like Saturday night. It got nice and cold last night, would like to see some rain and west winds. Craig and Z are after the perch today so I should have a report later on from the Big O.

JEEEEPERS Timmy!!!! You mentioned YBD's and got me to thinking that I never got you your jigs back that you let me use for the Silver Trap Attack. I'll get them to you soon enough! I even dug the out of my ice bag and now they will be in the truck awaiting a trip north.

Hey all...

Tanks back from his week in Canada with Billy and two others. Weather and company was nice but the fishing was slower than normal. They caught eyes but had to work fo them, enough for 3 meals and everyone brought home a limit. I'll have some pictures from Billy this week...

My buddy Paul and I made a half day suicide run up the Salmon river this afternoon. The lower end "pay to play" area was on fire today and just starting to reach where we fished. We landed some nice fresh cohos and Paul got a beutifull steelie. He hooked about a dozen fish and I did 15+. Tank and I will be back up this week and it should be awesome!

Heres a picture of lots of people I dislike...

Todd . . I have a gift for you. When are we going fishing so I can deliver? Cindy and I went to Sylvan Beach to toss a few lures and check out things. About 20 people total on both sides of the canal . . no action though. 3 out @ cozy corners wading. No baitfish @ bright light. No one @ Schneibels. Checked out the bar . . . a few baitfish. Feeding fish out deeper. One LMB about 8pm before heading out. Water is clear and higher than Friday night. Nothing yet . . .but it is close. Need some wind and cold temps.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
