Meteor Shower

Recommended Posts

I was just browsing the news headlines and read that the annual Perseid meteor shower will start building toward a peak on Aug. 12. The best viewing times will be late Sun, Aug 11 into the earlier hours of Mon, Aug 12 and again late Mon, Aug 12 into the early hours of Tue, Aug 13.

For those of you that will be in the area during this time, it will be worth your while to try and catch the shower. A few years ago I was camping on an island during a meteor shower and it was spectacular. I will be at a resort on Kab from Aug 10-18 and I am looking forward to it!

Thanks for the reminder!! I was just discussing this with my wife last night.

Get out away from city lights, on a lake, in the woods etc. This can make for some exciting night time visual displays.
I hope the night sky is clear in your kneck of the woods. LAst year(in my area), we had high night time stratos that made for poor visibility!

Thanks again Jill for the reminder! I moved your post so everyone could be reminded to look up come the 11th!!

I have been noticing a lot of shooting stars lately while fishing late nights.I made a lot of wishes and if I am out when they peak and I wish upon them all I will be the happiest man on earth!

Thanks for the reminder. The Perseids can be the most spectacular meteor shower of the year. Hopefully some cool nights, clear skies and a bit of a breeze will keep the mosquitoes at bay.

We're heading to the BWCAW that week.

Thanks again....

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.

    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
