But, now your rich and can run off to Aruba and parts unknown around the world each year!  :lol:

I don't know about being rich, but being in zero debt for the last few years helps.

You know what also helps.....marrying a girl that hates shopping as much as I do.

:)

When you don't come from much..........ya tend to view money and "stuff" in a different light.

And I'll try and spear a fish for you with the little umbrella from my cocktail. ;)

-8 on Saturday morning.

And I supposedly winter camp in March for the warmer temps.

:)

 

False flag, didn't catch a fish.

 

And I shook my head watching my buddy feed my hound a piece of Kobe steak, at least I had a taste before she did.

It's laker fishing leech, you know how that goes. Had a guy ski by camp in the morning to fish a hump about a quarter mile away. After 5 hours he skied by again and said he only had one looker.

 

Next year we might go back to targeting stream trout, a little more predictable.

 

Looked like slush was an issue recently in spots. Plenty of snow and ice still up there.

But now I am ready for spring.

Thanks Mike, it was a great time, but alas........I am back.

 

Went with an old co-worker who left about 6 years ago to go work for Garmin and their lake depth acquiring and mapping boats. He's a great story teller, and he had plenty of stories to tell about his travels around the country collecting lake data. Including the night he partied hard with Mama June and the Honey Boo Boo clan. lol

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. 😊

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.

It was an okay trip, made the best of it.

Changed destination and distance I was willing to travel in those weather conditions.

Can't afford to screw up when I'm solo. 

More of a winter trip feel than a fall trip.

After fishing in 17 degree windchill, I found just hanging out fireside a much better option.

 

I think I need to do an actual summer BW trip next year, despite the bugs and crowds.

Then I can take the fishing part more seriously.

 

Seen some groups pass by camp, so there were others as crazy as I.

    • Yeah, the last couple of weeks have been pretty uneventful at my feeders. Then all of sudden today I was bombarded with multiple species!    I had 2 hen pheasants pecking around, then later the rooster showed up. There were robins everywhere. The blue jays are back to eating up the peanuts within minutes of me putting them out. I’ve actually been saving money the last couple weeks on sunflower chips, because the goldfinches disappeared. But today I had redpolls out there for the first time of the season. So I’ll have to start working some overtime to afford the food they go through! Have a lot more woodpeckers this winter than last year as well.
    • 🤣 man leech go chase some cottontails.   Man that was funny!
    • Yep mine are back as well other then the Cardinals and Blue Jay's yet.  
    • Hawg go to this site. It will help you id them.  https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/    
    • It looks like you were using my cell phone to take those pics. I'm also surprised an old guy like you could stay up that late! Just kidding!
    • Thank you, looks like I have a ton of them and not the goldies, I'm kind of disappointed. There's quite a bit of difference, I must have been fooled by the yellow on the siskins. It's been a while since I had either. I'm still looking for my bird books to identify the others. It seems the older I get the better I get at hiding stuff from myself! Thanks again, Mark
    • not my pic but here is a winter goldie. pretty drab
    • pine siskins. look a lot like winter goldies just smaller
    • Eyeguy, do you have a picture of a winter goldfinch and a pine siskin? I'm not 100% sure I know the difference. Any idea what the birds are I posted about with the colored backs? Those are on the safflower seed heavy, not on the niger at all. I wish I had a lens to take a picture to show you.
