looking for a brave sole

19 posts in this topic

heading back home and nobody wants to fish with me anymore. something about it being cold out or something.....

anyway i want to hit the pond (mille lacs) thursday afternoon and evening and sunday afternoon and evening. i have a boat partner for sunday evening and all day monday but dont want to be short handed thursday and sunday afternoon.

this is weather permitting. waves wind and cold dont bother me but the boat can only break so much ice.

anyone interested in joining me or going to be out? if your going to be in the area let me know maybe we can at least stay in eye contact. as far as being on my boat all thats needed is plenty of warm clothing. if you have a fav. rod or some baits you want to bring i am sure i can find room for them.

normal plan is head out for a few hours and do a little casting and some trolling. head in warm up eat and the back out for some more. the where depends on the wind and who and how many are working on keeping boat ramps open. i am heading back up tonight and will be making the rounds to see what is open.

reply here and i can call you back later tonight or in the morning - my cell is dead and have no phone till later.

I can go, but I just looked at the weather forecast for Garrison tomorrow and it said a high of 18* and 15-25 mph wind from the NW. I know my reels would freeze up pretty fast. Are you planning on trolling?

I'm not brave enough to go on the pond tomorrow. If anyone else is interested in going with Matt, let him know. I can handle the temps, but the wind is what is keeping me from going. The weekend looks better, and so I might get out on a smaller lake if it's not frozen.

Sounds good, i'm planning on hitting the metro unless a phone call from you says otherwise. I have a partner in tow, room for 3 in your rig? I'm up tonight, feel free to ring me for skeptical planning.

You got that right! So was pulling a few people out who shouldn't have launched there... lol.

We did ok, moved 5-6 fish but they were very lazy follows. Came back and moved 'em at dark again too, but nobody biting.

Sunday was out on 'tonka, same story. Had 3 fish follow at once on a weedline, that was kinda cool. Two big girls and one smaller one, all hanging out for about a minute. One was pretty hot until it got into the vicinity of the other two.

Never made it too the big pond.

Not much happening for us on Saturday. Got the boat out with no problems so I guess it was a succesful trip. I heard somebody was there on Sunday trying to back their boat right down the ramp and break the ice with the boat/trailer. Not a good idea when you're dealing with 3" of ice.

I have heard you talk about gloves on here before, should've taken a look at those when I was chatting with you at the launch. My hands weren't lasting long while casting out there. Wind wasn't helping any.

WOW, I can't imagine trying to get in the launch...how'd they miss our tracks??!! haha

The gloves proved to be awesome, casted both days till late without getting cold. Your hands do get wet, but they are warm. Glacier Gloves,821BK Best cold weather fishing glove. Huge vote from me, I'll be putting them through further testing this week. cool

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
