    What's more aggravating?

    Started this topic a couple weeks ago after hooking into some toothy critter, a couple head shakes and it was starting to come up when I realized my canoe was drifting into the underwater point. As I was backing off the drag a tad and keeping tension with my right hand while paddling backwards with my left, I think the fish finally realized it was hooked, dove under the canoe, spun me around and peeled off drag into the weedline where it dislodged the crankbait. Arrrgh, it's all fine and dandy that it got off, but I just wanted to see what it was and how big. It could have been either a Pike or Muskie. My canoe is around 34 lbs, so I get taken for rides with decent sized fish, and I'm always surprised how far it moves on a hookset. Bigger fish seem to have more control of me than I of them. Last evening I hooked into a decent fish and it went deep, of course my first thought is "Let me see it." After taking me for a couple minute spin in 17ft of water she came up to greet me. Not a monster, but approaching 10 lbs......which is a nice size for a city fish.

    Time for a smoke

    Had a friend going camping this week and asked me to make up a “few” wings that could be reheated in the crock pot on Wednesday. Yesterday he dropped off a 10# bag from Costco. I laid them out on cookie sheets on paper towels so they could dry out a bit then coated them with some olive oil and lawrys. Good thing Costco doesn’t sell an 11# bag cause the smoker was full! They turned out pretty dam good. High heat for about 45 min. Rotated and flipped half way through.

    Was out fishing from the kayak and had this guy come up and check me out. He then went and buried himself in some brush as if he was trying hide from me. Taken in central MN

    What's on the grill

    Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:

    Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty.

    Backcountry Bluegills

    My Father-In-Law has recently gotten into ice fishing but he hasn't targeted Panfish yet through the ice. With the goal of getting him on some big Bluegills we decided to get off the beaten trail to check out a brand new lake. We loaded up our sleds, hopped on the snowmobiles and put the miles on. With no contour or lake maps we searched for hours with no sign of a Bluegill. That all changed when we stumbled on a shallow and weedy flat. As soon as we got lines in the water the quality fish started showing up! It's always fun when a new lake pans out!

    Where everyone go?

    Facebook is just a big pozi scheme to mine everyone's personal data and to sell it to the highest bidder and bombard you with advertising. I know this because I work in digital marketing and can make ads that follow people around on facebook. For those that still do bass fish like me and don't use facebook for anything other than making money off the weak minded it is nice to have a forum for just fishing. This one seems to be dying off but I still check back a few times a month in case I can help anyone out.

    Walleye fishing remains quite good with a nice mix of quality fish. Caught these three Saturday afternoon in just a few hours. 17", 18", 19+". Fish were caught from 10 - 19 FOW, again all near tips of points. Crawlers put more in the boat than leeches, but better have both along. Can't wait to get back.

    I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason. It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....

    Engel bait coolers

    So I’m sure a lot of you saw they were on sale at the C store around Christmas. The sale apparently got them to a price point people were willing to go for a try. I heard the Rogers store sold out. I grabbed a 13 quart and 19 quart; one for small minnows and hoping the 19 would do for suckers. I have to admit I had high hopes (not expectations) for performance going into this. All my hopes haven’t been realized but with a few weeks of use under the belt, I do have some opinions. Would I buy again? Probably at the sale price. I’ll have to wait for a whole season of use before saying I’d pay full retail, but maybe. Would you?

    Crow Lake for opener

    Quick recap: Weather was too darn “nice”! Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day. We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later. We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay. Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit. It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it. A few pics as hoped for:

    Extra Gas ?

    I was camping up at leech last weekend and in the site next to me was a campground host. He was a retired border guard. I remembered this post so I asked him about it. His response was if you had more gas then you needed for your trip then they would start asking questions. The biggest with him at the border was attitude from the people crossing.

    So I show the Old La.........Mrs. Duff the pic and she's like "That pic makes your garden look big.^ Then I show her your comment and the Dandelion Eliminator says "Yea.....that's the first thing I noticed." You see......outside of Thunderdome it's the Ol......Mrs. Duff's domain. I can only do so many stir fry's and fajita's, I'm a pepper sauce garden guy now. True story......... I left the Hobbit door open on Thunderdome one night and had deer tracks in there the next day.
