Water is coming down and temp is going up - Twins are on the radio

15 posts in this topic

The Battleship went in the water this afternoon and she is all nestled in her slip. The St Croix is on a nice slow drop from the high water and the temp has been creeping up - 42 degrees today. 45 degrees has been kind of a magic number for the channels to get going. I'm putting up my Day Enclosure and going to fish through a few Twins games this next week. Some warm 60 degree sunny days coming should turn on the high water backwater areas.

Time to get on the KOTC Leaderboard. Look out, Tyler - I'm going to take a run at your leader spot.

Let the Trash Talking begin.

Go get e'm SteveD. When you go channeling the goal should be at least to catch as many fish as the Twins put up runs.....then double that # grin. Good luck bud.

Sure- that makes sense. I was having one of those "I can see it but I'm not sure what it is" moments. Seems to be happening more and more lately. It is heck getting old.

Thanks for the info.

SteveD, Are you not the guy on MinnesotaWaterFowler (dot com) (MWF)that goes by "Swampy"? We have talked about Cattin and the Twins over on that site a fair amount....I assumed you were him?

Here's the funny thing, the only thing I could come up with from MWF was MN waterfowler assoc. I've never heard of it and didn't know it existed, yet that is what I thought of......then figured I was off base when Mon Wed Fri was suggested.

Funny smile

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!

    • try boiling in water then let soak a couple days and blast them with pressure washer
