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.

    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
    • That's the way most falls go. I was able to get out and put a gobbler down this fall. Went out just for a bird since I knew where they had been going in the morning. Got to the woods just after fly down and worked my way to the area and heard them talking a bit. Gave out a few yelps and had them running to me.
      Most years I never get a shot only have taken a handful in the fall. I was in a woods that I was not worried about ruining for deer.
    • Now that the corn is out and the ground is white the birds are really showing themselves. Three times in the last month I have seen 50-60  birds on a short day. Nearly every one was in a group and they are concentrating in dense thickets of plum brush.    And there are literally next to no hunters out and about going after them which is a big change from even a decade ago
    • I too remember these stupid punch cards in High school.  All the Nerds in the Computer class did stuff with um! 😅
    • I remember those stupid punch cards.  I was in junior high and had to “program” em in class.  I hated em and thought I’d just avoid using computers altogether! 😀
    • Good hunt in SD today: 
    • Had the day off so hit some public land around the Mitchell area today.   Did well, my favorite upland gun is my O/U and is currently broke. Busted a firing pin and waiting for gunsmith to get a knew one made on a lathe. So today I brought out the old 870 which I haven’t shot in at least 5 years or more.   Thought it would throw off my shooting but to my surprise managed a quick double on 2 shots lol. it’s always amazing how fast a day in the field can turn around. And I really enjoyed shooting this gun again. It’s amazing how something so cheap and simple is so good.   Day started out really slow I couldn’t find birds anywhere and then found the motherload. Shot my 3rd bird, put it in my vest and bumped birds all the way back to the truck.   Good late season hunt just wish we had more snow. And this warm weather isn’t helping ice that’s for sure.  
    • Looks good!  👍 Lets see no work gloves, may be a hat?  Do you have a coaster under that hot pan mister? 😊
    • Steak fajitas tonight.
