Hi Gals!
I just returned from a short trip (Saturday and Sunday only) to my parent's cabin on Mille Lacs. I hadn't been there since early July and thought I could talk my dad into taking me out the flats to do some fishing. Unfortunately the wind was too strong on Saturday to get out from our southeast corner of the lake. So my dad suggested that he would take my 6 year old son and I out fishing off the dock. We were having all kinds of fun feeding the minnows our nightcrawlers when my dad handed his rod over to my son to reel in the fish that took his bobber down. We were all in shock when he pulled the fish up next to the dock and here was a 24+inch walleye! Never in our wildest dreams would we think we would catch a walleye of this size at 1:00 in the afternoon in mid-August off the dock in only 6 feet of water! We took a few quick pictures, then returned the walleye back into the lake. Needless to say this kept us fishing for a couple more hours! Unfortunately the only things we could catch after that were perch and sunfish (another first! In over 30 years of fishing off this dock we have never caught sunfish until this year). This was definitely a day full of memories! Hope you all have had a chance to get out to make some memories fishing this summer, too!

D-Man,
I'm not an expert on sunnies, so I really don't know what to compare them too. But they were big enough to keep and fillet and then eat.

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
