Just got back from Lake Vermilion and had a blast!!! Caught and released 60'ish fish (ate 7) over the week. It is pretty funny when my husband and I fish together. I was born to fish...up with the sun, bait my own hook, catch the fish (and the biggest), remove the hook from the fish, last off the lake, clean and fillet the fish ect.....Still the men will ask him first how the fishing was, what bait he was using ect...(HAHA!)I am pretty lucky though...the man KNOWS how to fry up a perfect fillet! Just because you still look like a girl doesn't mean you're a "prissy little woman" Thanks for all the laughs!!

I went with another friend of mine fishing at Medicine Lake about 2 years ago and we were the talk. Every man on every boat wanted to say something. It seemed they were amazed that two woman wanted to fish. I also have gone to a bait shop with my boyfriend or my dad and the people there seem to talk to them. Now If that happens I pop in and make sure I am noticed because until I do, they assume the man knows most or I am just tagging along. I have that happen also at Gaylans for example. Once I stand up and let that person know I am serious they then make the eye contact with me and talk with me, but I have to inititate it all.

In addition, my guy does not even know how to clean fish and to be honest, I am not really sure he cares to learn. He still will not put a leech on his hook, I have to do it for him. But his takes off bullheads for me so I consider it a fair match.

Mine won't clean fish either. The only good thing about this is when you are at a boat show or store and just want to look the salesmen bother your uninterested husband and leave you alone!

One of the biggest mistakes I've made is to get pretty good at cleaning fish--and having had too many people watch me do it. Guess who gets to clean fish on outings?

It's a smart fellow who never learns to clean fish. If I were smart, I'd butcher a few fillets, but I can't stand waste.

Well I learned by necessity - Dad said if you want to fish you bait your own hook and clean fish. Actually I really don't mind it - especially since I got the electric knife. Rather clean them than cook them!

    • 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.
