Burntside Bash

Recommended Posts

I'm looking forward again this year attending the 11th Annual Burntside Bash up in gorgeous Ely, MN on Saturday, March 9th. It's a memorial for fallen guide Jim Hudson who tragically passed away on January 26th. There will be a silent auction, food and camaraderie at the Van Vac landing. All proceeds will go to his wife Hannah Stonehouse Hudson.

I decided to head to Ashland this weekend, planned this trip in December. Wish I could be in two places at once. Have a great time everyone.

I'm sure you'll have an equally fun weekend Barb-you'll have to come to the Bash next year. I'll try to take pics to post from the Bash here on Sunday or Monday. I'm super excited to be getting back up to Ely since I haven't ice fished very much this winter.

I did have a good time in spite of the horrible weather. Saturday we had a combination of rain, sleet and snow all day. Not fun riding an ATV with ice pelting you in the face. I only caught 1 splake on Saturday and nothing on Friday but from what we heard there was not a lot being caught anywhere. I did meet a great guide from up there, Aron Kastern. He gave us a lot of tips and was real patient with us newbies to the Superior ice fishing experience. I never realized there were so many species in Superior. I am going to have to get up there more often. One of the gals really got spanked by a steelhead on Sunday morning, she said it hit like bomb and took off like a freight train. She fought it hard and lost it just coming up to the hole. My ice fishing may be over for the year, between my bad back and the fact that I came home sick again (third time this winter) I might have to wait for the softwater season. Kinda bummed, hoped to get out and do some nice piggy perch fishing.

Sounded like a great time Barb! I've never ice fished Lake Superior before which is a shame since I live pretty close. Maybe you can sneak out one more time on one of the panfish lakes around you? I'm not sure if I'll have time to go out again either for that matter.

I put a post down in the Bash details thread in the BWCA-Duluth-Gunflint Trail-North Shore Lake Superior Burntside Bash thread. The other Bashers always make this day so much fun-what a great time! I got to meet some new people like Matt Breuer, buzbunni, Piedmont Angler's brother and dad, leech, Shane Z and his gf Amanda, Wayne and few more that this ole brain can't remember! As always it was great seeing Mike (chaffmj) and his wife Jodi, Steve Foss, Steve Sutherland, Frank (Surface Tension) and Frank Jr, Casaloma, Gary (ripstick), Randy (Loonasea), Vic (PA), Zona and Dan (simey1)with their son, the other Jim (trumy), Mike Stark and I'm sure I've missed some others. Can't wait until next year!

    • Hmmm.  My cheapest camera is a Wildgame Innovations unit but I haven’t been a great fan of it.  It’s not the NANO version but though, just a cheap one I picked up in a small shop during a hunt cuz I felt I NEEDED one right then.   I do like my old Moultrie and am looking at the M50i as a much updated version of it.   Still comparing their line up.  If I just bought now, that’s what I’d go with.   That WGI 360 sounds like something I have to check out!
    • I have been a Wild Game Innovations fan for most of my time using cams.  I really really like the NANO version they put out.  Compact, only take 4 AA batteries, great battery life and the pictures have been very good quality.  That being said, last year I won a Moultrie Game Spy 2 at a company party and have been very impressed with it.  Same as the Nano, takes only 4 batteries and pictures are very good as well.  These two cameras are now my "go to" and I won't be needing to spend  100's on other cameras when these work great.  The one camera that I am thinking about getting though is the WGI 360 degree camera.  Supposed to be able to take pictures 360 degrees so you don't miss anything moving behind where a normal camera can't detect them.
    • yeah the last couple years have been rather tough for me, but all is good and I can't wait to get back into the stand.  Are you still working the Deployed Soldier/Disabled Soldier hunt at Ripley?  We stopped going as it was just too early in the season and weather was always so darn warm.  Wish they would have held it right prior to the "big" hunts at the end of the month.  Always a good time though.    You'll hear more from me in the time to come and look forward to hearing all your reports of the big one!!!
    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
