I didn't go fishing today, instead I went to the dump and unloaded 5 bags of stinky trash and a bunch of recycling. Came home and opened up my Otter to make sure it is dry and guess what? There was still ice in the sled. Threw open some windows and aired the house out. Now I have to get the messy garage cleaned up and all my summer fishing stuff in order. Gotta be ready to hit the water as soon as the ice goes out.

You should be having a nice ice melting day today. Hopefully you all get some rain to go along with it.

The garage is also my weekend chore, but I have a 20 year old to help.

I had the surgery on both knees on April 8. So, a little over a week ago.

Glenn - I would go get it, but it's 3 hours away, and I can't drive that far because my knees hurt by about 30 minutes.

Got some good news last night though. Hubby went to Walker to get the boat!!!!! It will be home by Sunday night.

Finally made it out tonight. I stayed out with a friend, her hubby, and their munchkin until dark. Didn't catch much, some nice sunnies, a couple of small bass, and a couple of smaller crappies. It was fun though, I stopped fishing at sunset to watch it. Nice to be able to do that finally and not freeze!!!! smile

I think it is allergies. I am busy getting involved with another project. It is called "Operation Minnesota Nice", people getting together all over the state and adopting soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. They get together once a month and send packages to the soldiers. Anyone wants to know more google the name. I have decided my retirement is going to be fulfilling and adventurous.

Well it sure was good mental therapy! My man sure knows how to use his days off-surgery or no surgery. I can't wait to see his pics. He should post them in the next couple hours.

    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming. 
    • Well this has been a tough season so far with this odd weather. Late winter jump into 80+ degrees.  It will be interesting to see what these next 4-5 days of 80's to 90's do to them?   Did find a few Morel's and some nice small tender Pheasant  backs last time out.
    • For the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went up to Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. The morning started off slow for us so we changed up the tactics and it resulted in a livewell full of walleyes, a few Slot fish and a new Personal Best!     
    • Ok, if you don't post back in a few days we know!
    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
