I Have The "Where is Summer Blues"

Recommended Posts

Just went to pick up the boat from storage and take it over to the "tune up guy" and had to do it in the SNOW! Yes, the dirty four letter word. Any sunny ideas for a day like this?

Rig your rods, re-spool your reels, clean and sort your tackle box, get your batterys charged and hope for warmer day.

Good fishing,

I thought about doing all those things - looked out the window and decided I would rather do it outside in the sun. Maybe next weekend! But did get the battery charged. That is good - right?

Hey HtchEyeCatcher
We did not get enough for a snowman - thank goodness. But it snowed and melted all day and it is freezing here today. Poor little robins are thinking they came back way too early!

Hi Phyl,

It has been a cold spring. I keep telling myself that is is just doing this until we get done with our big move cause if it was to nice out I'd want to be up at the camper fishing and not here. We got all the hard wood floors redone and it took us a whole week to do them but they are sure pretty. Now we have to let them dry for 72 hours and we can move in. Hope to be done this coming weekend so after that the weather will warm up. Well it better any way cause I'll be headed to the lake to do some long over due fishing. How about you have you got out at all yet?

Hi Mary: No we have not gone out yet. It has been so cold here I think the fish are home knitting sweaters! We both sat around the house and pouted all weekend because it was so cold and wet. I have flower beds I want to Roundup and put plastic over before opener but I can't get it done. We did finally get our boat over to the tuneup guy so hopefully he will get it done by opener. He use to work for a boat store locally and became a fireman and has now built a shop so he can work on boats at home on his days off. I have been after him bad enough that it looks like mine is first in line anyway!

I'll bet your floors are beautiful. Lucky you a clean and shiny house to move into before opener. My daughter had last weekend off and wanted to clean her camper and get it ready but of course that did not happen either. Be careful and don't scratch those floors when you move in. Hope the move goes well.

Just watched the weather report for next week. Chance of rain every day and the bad four letter word that starts with an S (I refuse to even use it on the 2nd week in May) for Wed. Enough already! So does everyone have their down filled snow suits ready for the opener?

I remember 3 years ago when it snowed on opener.

Think positive. The weather will be nice.

Weather people aren't always right.

    • That's awesome!  Many congrats to you both. 
    • A cougar absolutely but a puma? That might be a good time to call SSS outfitters.
    • Maybe if no one was looking
    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
