?Mille Lacs Weekend?

Recommended Posts

Guest

OK, sick boy here need's info on all the good time's I missed out on, as if I don't feel crummy enough already?

I was very eager to get a chance to meet everyone this weekend, but it was a no go for me due to a touch of phenomena. Thought I had my nasty little cold beat but it had other ideas for me I guess?

(FYI)-Feeling better this morning, fever is gone and I can breath much better now.

So, how went the kid's event Lisa?

The big boy's & girl's play nice & stay out of trouble? Like Rick, Skeeter, Paul & you for instance?

LOL!

Bet it was a blast!

Eddy,

I really was hoping you could have come......Yes, it was a blast!

We had an impressive turnout, (especially when you consider the below zero temps! ) As you know, the kids tourney was my main project for the day. We had 60 youngsters brave the cold. The smiling faces and red cheeks will be in my memory bank for many years. I am proud to have been given the opportunity to help plan and coordinate such an event. (Thanks Rick!!)

After being registered, the kids took part in a free sloppy joe lunch. They each won lots of prizes such as toys, candy, cash, gift certificates and tackle. They played a learning game created and performed by local DNR officers with the help of Mille Lacs County Sheriff personnel. The Mille Lacs County Hover craft even went for a spin around the bay! The highlight for many was watching the hot air balloons floating across the frozen lake and landing right in front of us!

The Fishing Minnesota forumguides and participants congregated at Mac's Twin Bay on Friday evening to meet one another. We ended up calling each other by our forum names. It was a great time and I can't wait for next year!

I hope you will be there!

I would have been too sick to appreciate all the fun but you sure did a bang up job for them kid's. I bet they will remember that day for a very long time!

Participation & caring like you have shown is what builds future fisherpersons through education and fun. Great job Lisa & crew!

ATA-GIRL LISA! Job well done! The gang all speak very well of you and rightfully so by what I can see.

I am not avoiding anyone I really wish I could have made the weekend, it was beyond my control. I was very sick and still am not feeling 100% yet. Sure getting caught up on my sleep though, that is when I am not hacking that is. I'm a big baby, hate sick, sick suck's! BOO-HOO!

BE..><ND>

Thanks for the kind words, Eddy. The kids are the reason we all do what we do, right?!

Now, take your vitamins, drink lots of juice and keep your socks dry!

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
