Anyone going out on Christmas?

19 posts in this topic

I'm thinking about it! Possibly sometime in the afternoon after all of the family pleasantries wrap up.

Will you head out to a favorite hole, or try some place new?

Anyone plan on making it a family experience?

Heading to the inlaws? Thinkin' about sneaking some gear with you? wink

The wife and I are driving seperate to the in-laws, I will be calling and telling them my truck broke down. You will see me in the shack. I won't be missing much anyways, dry turkey, dry conversations, dry drinks:) and poor attitudes. I won't even care if I don't get a bite

OUCH man! that is no good! but it cracked me up! ...im heading up north on wednesday morning. spending time with my wife's family isnt too bad, but i am definately going to do a ton of fishing over my long weekend!! i go alot with the wife's uncle. it is always a good time. we have almost 30 years age difference, but we never run out of [PoorWordUsage] to talk about. dont think he will make out on Christmas day, but i might just drive the extra half hour to vermillion that night!

I'm planning on heading out if I find someone to head out with. The in-laws want us to come over; my wife and the kid have said that they will be going over, and that I might be busy. Which I hope I am. smile

Yes, I'll be going out in the afternoon/evening for the walleye bite. I've got a spot I haven't been to yet this season, and am planning to hit that spot.

I would love to go out, but I have some harsh days of work after Christmas. Not to mention, I'm going home ( 2 1/2 hours north of here) and I will be by the lake I grew up on with no gear frown. I should have put that on the Christmas list for my dad smile. Happy Holidays guys! smile

I'm definitely going--I even got the warden talked into coming with. She enjoys it once in a while, especially if it's bluegills or crappies we're going after, and she even puts the waxworms on and takes the fish off!!!!! I'm a lucky guy.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
