Mpls Boy wants to fish the north land

Recommended Posts

So last year I was looking forward to my first "real" opener at our, in-laws, lake place. Im a carpenter and they grabbed this joint that needed a few things. I bilt new kitchen cabs, set and trimmed a few windows, couple of sky lights, its an A frame. You know, made it have a lake breeze, nice place.. Spring comes last year and had an accident, fractured my neck playing softball on 4/24. No boat for 8 weeks. I got little kids, I got other worries beside fishing. First night out out in July, 15 minutes in the boat, my boat, i get a 26" Walleye! life is good! Go on to a great fishing season. closer her up with a 23"large mouth on the last day this Winter. Lots of fish this year.. I missed the first two months of the season on the bench last year but had great luck when I was out, should I be bitter about the weather and the late start this year or just let life play and fish as the water tells me or should I want to be out day one? Our Place is up by Ely and the opener is looking funny for this year. Do the fishing gods care that I had a broken neck last year or was I rewarded for my resolve last fall with 2 walleyes over 8 pounds in Oct.?

as long as you are above the ground what difference does it make when you go fishing,seasons are just days some man put on the calendar, nature has its own ideas as you can tell,if you can't fish in the boat bring your ice fishing stuff the way the weather is the rest of us will probably be joining you

Sorry to hear about the neck. frown Take care of your kids and your job first and fishing and softball may have to wait a little longer.

Did your Doc, do any brain scans the last time you were in? confused

It's always a good thing to have done after a neck-spine injury! eek

Good luck!

You might need to rig up a little different to fish opener by Ely...

Go when you can, and take the kids out if you are catching fish. Makes it a lot easier and more enjoyable if they want to go, too. Listen to the water, as you said.

We had an AFLAC sales person in our office a while ago. She said by far her #1 claim payout is for softball injuries. Us old guys in our 30's need to learn to take it easy. Hope you have a good year on the lake Max! I think that far north your're looking at 50-50 odds for open water on opener.

Sorry for being off topic, but does anyone rent these in the Detroit Lakes area. I'd like the half day rental rate, so I can go out and do some hot laps on my home lake. I figure that would get me time to make some trails to get to my favorite fishing spots. Then again maybe I should go with the full day rental so I can make decoy trails so not everyone knows which trails go to my favorite spots.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
