Guiding Light...

5 posts in this topic

Due to horrendous conditions, the Red River's famous fall "greenback run" is down for the count for the remainder of the open water season. This has forced me to venture an hour drive north the Pine Falls and fish for greenbacks on the Winnipeg River and Traverse Great action, but the Winnipeg never come remotely close to producing trophy 'eyes like the Red.

Seen here, is a couple of my guests with typical Pine Falls greenbacks...

Upon traveling back up river to the boat launch yesterday, I couldn't help notice this old Box Alder tree and the way in which the suns rays were streaming through a large hole in the tree trunk. I had to stop and capture a few quick photo's, here's what I got.

By the way, this couple has landed approximately 70 walleye during the past two days. The fish average 3 to 4 pounds, this is typical of Pine Falls.

Ken, of course Stu is the greenback expert, but the ones I've seen out of the Red up in his country are a gorgeous pale green/blue on the back with white below.

Good stuff Stu. I spent quite a few falls up at Pine Falls, until the fishing slowed down enough for me to stop making the long drive up. The heydays of the mid to late 90's at Pine Falls and the Red were a blast.

We do have some nice photos of some sumo greenies for memories though. I've been thinking of making the run up there again, maybe next year.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?  
    • sheez reb................i hadda clean all your slobber off the inside my screen when i opened this thread!!!!!!!!!!
