    LOL.  I have went out of my way for a decade to never deal with face to face banking.

    I skipped the miss and went straight for the wound a couple years ago.   Still waiting on the kill.

    It's truly amazing how social media has transformed our lives.   Seems like not too long ago there was no such thing as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or TikTok.    Where did you go for fishing information, research, brotherhood and fellowship?   You spent a lot of time at bait shops, reading magazines and newspapers, or you dialed up into a fishing discussion bulletin board on the world wide web.   I'm a geek who preferred the electronic version so I spent A LOT of time online reading everything I could on web forums and discussion boards.  I came to find a primary home here with Fishing Minnesota in roughly 2000.   I dove in and met a lot of great fishing and personal friends.  I was provided the opportunity to get involved with the marketing side of fishing and learned quite a bit about the business of fishing.  
    I've been saddened to see how participation in forums such as this and others I follow, have crashed with the growing popularity of other platforms.
     
    What brings me here though today is to stop by and say hi to all my old fishing friends.  About 4 years ago I started a Catfish/Sturgeon guide service.  It has been growing steadily each year and one of the reoccurring themes I seem to experience is how many of my guests refer to Fishing Minnesota Dot Com and how they came to recognize me and my activity there from years ago.   
     
    For several years this site reigned supreme when it came to current fishing news and information and a place where everyone was here to help and became a brotherhood for many.  While there was always some political stuff tossed in, for the most part it was a place to forget about the world and focus on our favorite past time.    Oh how times have changed.....   
     
    I hope everyone is doing well and pushing through all the background noise in todays world.  What we are currently experiencing does not bode well for our mental health and I hope things change soon before we find ourselves in another 1863 Gettysburg.
     
    I'll share a great experience I had the other night with a Mother/Daughter captured by Ben Garving (Award winning KARE11 photojournalist).   He really did a great job in capturing what happens when you forget about outside things for a while and spend time with family and just sit back and enjoy our great outdoors.   No matter your political views or your thoughts on our natural resources and how they are managed, this is something we can all come together and embrace. 
     
    Take care!

    Sometimes you just need to sit by yourself in the woods for a while.
     
     
     
    I sat last weekend and didn't see nuthin.  It was a good sit though, I had a bit of leaf canopy and was the right way with the wind so I only got about half soaked.
     
    Caught a lil guy with messed up antlers on the trail cam.  He looked more like a deformed caribou than a deformed whitetail.  I shoulda saved the pic, I just plugged the card into my phone and viewed, didn't save anything.

    Stoked about this cold snap and hope it continues.  
     
    I hate deer/duck hunting and fighting off mosquitoes.

    I found a bunch north of ML a couple weeks ago.  Oysters too.  
     
    I found some past the expiration date oysters in the cities last week.

    I’d put a tarp on top of it. Not the most waterproof if you get heavy rain or snowmelt.

    I'm gonna go hard from mid sept on.  Couple week break in November.  Hopefully I won't have to see if any deer are left in December.
     
    I'll duck hunt a bit, but I'm kind of over it.  The juice just really isn't worth the squeeze.  At this point in my life, if it ain't a mallard or a wood duck, I'm probably just gonna let em land.  I have had enough schitt duck jerky for this lifetime.  I actually prefer goose over duck by a longshot.  And I really need a duck or two.  I don't have any interest in limiting out.  
     
    Always get a fall turkey tag too.  Just in case I get a flock under the stand.

    I do use spring water and not the tap.  Burnsville tap water smells like the swimming pool.  I rarely use it for anything other than washing stuff.

    It's totally a scam.  
     
    I have never boiled it.  Just like making koolaid, it will dissolve easier in warm water.  I haven't had a problem with room temp as long as you're willing to stir it for a bit.  No disrespect to anyone's late wife.
     
    I make about a quart at a time and I don't put a lot in the feeder at once.  Store the rest in the fridge.  Those feeders are big and it will go bad years before they can get through it.
