Memorial Day Weekend

Recommended Posts

So whats everyone doing on Memorial Weekend?
I'm leaving on Thursday for the camper. Friday our middle daughter and her family will be coming up to spend the weekend. I found an old camping book today when going threw some stuff and found a couple recipes I use to make when we went camping when our girls were little. I think I'll make some Indain fry bread tacos and a pinnapple upside down cake over hot coals for the 2 grand daughters and to bring back some memories for their Mom from when she was little. Whats going to be cooking where your at?

HI Del, With all this rain the Lake has gone up some. We had to add a plank to get on our dock. You would of thought it would have gone up even more then it did, but like one person was saying there was a lot of sluews that had to be filled up first that were dry. The Cannon River runs into our Lake. Also they got plenty of rain but not near as much as we did in Iowa. You did mean the Lake right? Are you headed up that way soon?

Del you go a head and intrude all you want. Your always welcome here.

Have a safe and happy Memorial Weekend!

Thats to bad you have to work. This is just the beginning of camping season so hopefully you will get some time to get out there this summer.

Ok here is the recipes. They are cooked over lots of hot coals in a dutch oven.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Line dutch oven with aluminum foil. Bottom and sides. Grease with butter or oil.
Line bottom of pan with pineapple rings. Add a cherry in the middle of each pineapple.
Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 3T. of the pineapple juice.
Perpare a yellow or white cake mix acording to directions on box. Pour over pineapple. Put the dutch oven in a good hot bed of coals. Depending on the coals it should take about 45 min. Test cake with a tooth pick to make sure its done. Let it cool about 10 minutes and pull the cake out by the foil and flip the cake over on a dinner plate.

Indain Fry Bread

4 c. flour
1 T. salt
1 T. baking powder
Mix together. Add enough water to make stiff dough. Knead until dough is thick and elastic. Form into thin round patties. Fry in 1/2 inch of very hot oil until brown on both sides. Now you can do all kinds of different things with this. Top them with your favorite taco items. Eat them hot with butter or peanut butter. I use to roll them in sugar for my girls when they were little.

Enjoy Mary

Well, I went and got the boat license today - but then I watched the weather. It is not looking good. Mattsgal may be better off working and getting another weekend off. We had planned to head over to the daughters lake place, but if the weather is cold and wet I think we will just wait. We were out for supper on Sunday night and two guys came in that had been fishing and they were just shaking they were so cold. That does not sound like fun to me.

Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday weekend.

I am heading to Beebe lake on Friday and maybe Sat. weather permitting. I hope we have some fun, however I wonder how much the lake has risen (launching a 12 foot alum. boat) I am excited being it will be our first time out.

Good luck fishing and have a great holiday weekend (even if you have to work like me on Sunday).

    • Looks like a good time 
    • I love my Helix unit also, and GPS has been a game changer for me. No more fumbling with my phone in the cold with apps eating my battery and trying to keep it out of the elements.    I miss the simplicity of my Marcum VX-1 but after getting my Helix dialed in I have no complaints.
    • SD resident opener was a wet one. Saturday I didn't go out. Sunday morning woke up with 4.5" inches of snow at my place a few miles south of Sioux Falls. Never would I have imagined we would be able to hunt in snow this early! The other odd part is that none of the weather people even hinted at any accumulation or even predicted any chance of precip. It literally just came out of nowhere.   Yesterday I hunted the entire day from noon to sundown and was fortunate enough to still have some snow stick around in areas.. My only summary is swamp country. I wore the wrong boots, wrong pants etc. Should have just wore waders would have been able access things better. My biggest mistake was not going far enough west and not far enough north. But there is a ton of public land where I headed and I hadn't been able to scout that way yet this year. Everything that looked walkable was wet it didnt matter how high or low it was. If it looked good at knee level it very likely had ankle high standing water under it. Ditches were full of water, some roads were underwater it was just wet everywhere and I don't see any signs of any harvesting starting any time soon. The water just made things difficult to walk as some areas I am familiar with. I could walk one side and work it good, but then get land locked because of water and have no way of getting to the other sides and ended up back tracking and walking a lot of same areas twice  which usually isnt productive.   I only managed 1 bird all day. I missed 1 bird my first walk probably at 12:01pm right after getting out of the truck. Just was slow to get the gun up and was way behind it. Typically early season lull, I think I just stared at the bird before I even realized I should be trying to shoot it. I downed another bird early afternoon and I knew it wasn't hit hard. Made a good mark on it and then my dog got a good track and pinned it down. As I went to grab it with my hand the dog released and the bird took off like a bat out of hell and we never were able to recover it because of all of the water. As soon as I put my hand on it, it just exploded and was gone. Was just an odd scenario.   Saw a few other hens but otherwise a very very slow day. I had spotted a bunch of birds coming out of some CRP earlier in the day that headed for corn. I came back an hour before sundown and hunkered down hopefully to get some pokes at them during the golden hour and they never showed up. I know the birds are around but all the crops in makes it difficult to hunt during the day.   I dont know what to suggest for people coming for the big opener this weekend. Its going to be difficult with so many crops in. I would say anywhere north of HWY 14 should be a little drier in areas but they have still seen some moisture the last couple weeks. Up near Brown county they are basically in a drought and down in the south eastern part of the state we are breaking yearly precipitation records. Harvest is off to a slow start all over. I know this weekend is the big opener everyone gets fired up for but if it were me I would be coming back for late season hunts and skip the circus this weekend.   I wont be hitting it hard any time soon will probably just stick to some sundown hunts closer to home for now. I have some gopro footage I need to get edited from yesterday got alot of good stuff on video including the bird that got away.   Good luck to those heading out this weekend!
    • I'd like to see how the Helix handles interference.   Interference was the reason I went from my Interphase Video to a flasher. Currently using HBird Ice 45 and MarCum LX5.
    • I put all the boats put away,  subsequently the rain stopped.  I'll take that and finish pulling the dock in.
    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
    • Was up in Ely over the weekend, darn windy and chilly Sat night.  You make it look so warm and fuzzy with the camp setup and fire. 😊
