Weekend plans.......roll call!

17 posts in this topic

Hey all,

Many are headed deer hunting I'm sure......what are the plans?

Me...weather permitting, I'd really like to head out. Maybe trolling, or maybe try the QS rig approach. Not sure yet. The 20+mph winds with the 35 degree temps forecasted for Saturday are a bit discouraging. I'll be in the metro area regardless.

Whatever you do; please put safety first....be it woods or water. To use the Boy Scout motto...Be Prepared.

I'll be out if I can find a partner. Not the time of year to be alone on the lake. And the fact I can't swim.

but thats a good thing. whistle

Planning on fishing the metro hard all weekend, not sure where yet. Got casting setups, trolling setups, all ready to go.

There's a big girl who tried for my pike who i'm pretty sure i'm gonna go chase for a while. ;-)

No fishing for me this weekend. Instead probably drinking with friends, and probably way more than I'd like to. When you aren't around them on the weekend for 3 months straight because you're fishing, I expect to be on the receiving end a lot while playing drinking games.

I do hope to get in 1 more fishing outing this year though before I hang it up. Unlike many of you I don't partake in the frostbite.

Will get on WBL this afternoon with pops. Water temps should still be upper 40s after the recent warm weather so I'm anticipating an active bite! Be careful tomorrow guys! NW winds at 22mph.

Good luck to all who get out and brave the elements for muskies with this weather!

I still have a doe tag and don't think I could miss deer opener for anything. And if a really nice buck walks by my brother might be nice enough to let me use his tag since we'll be hunting together.

Frostbite is how I refer to ice fishing. I'll fish late fall usually, up to the point where you have to dip the rod in the water to de-ice the guides. The boat has been winterized, so any fishing would be out of a 14ft aluminum cartop powered by a 25lb electric trolling motor. On a light wind day it'll be alright for a small lake, but no big lakes and no windy days for me.

All i'm going to throw is a squirrely bert.

from now until it gets dark, or until I get too cold.

Going out solo and without a net, I'd rather see fish today than catch them probably.

ah who am i kidding, I'll try and come back with some stories.

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.

    •   They're legal until they fall into the wrong hands.  But I haven't heard of many cases where doctors or patients have ended up in prison for distributing narcotics.  So far, the suggested remedy for the epidemic seems to be for the states to set up online information sites so the public can be "educated" about the dangers of using addictive drugs.     So, apparently, armored vehicles, swat teams, and prison sentences are the answer for illegal drugs, and education is the key for legal drugs,
