... of world's WORST Mushroom hunter...

But I did fid this guy... Actually I found 3 but only picked this one.  Hopefully I'll find some time to check back at the same spot later this week. I think it's a little early where I hunt. A few warm days this week after all this rain and they should be poppin'! (Yeah, yeah... I know you should use a porous mesh bag, but I didn't have any handy)

Every year I forget how good these are, three hours of wandering aimlessly was definitely worth it, even for just one tasty morsel.

For those of you who have never hunted them - can you find the mushroom in this pic?

No! Where is it??!

Easy to say "yeah well the camera is zoomed-out."  But this is your vantage point when searching.  It's almost like "glassing" a hillside when hunting.  You choose one small area in-front of you and scan it thoroughly before moving to the next.  Almost stepped on this guy before I spotted him.

I think I might hit the area off a well known bike path in Rochester, not mentioned to avoid upsetting delicate sensibilities but it is near a large mansion paid for by the pre medicare patients who needed treatment.  :D

All those woods look like mushroom central to me.

With Morels it's pretty safe - no other 'shroom around here looks like them.  There are false morels that are poisonous, but I think they only exist in the southern US.  Also, even if we had them, it's easy to tell them apart.  True morels are hollow, falls ones are not.

With my luck, it would be a new look-alike species. I'd end up running aroiund naked declaring "I am the white rabbit!!"

Actually Found a TON of Verpas on Sunday.....they look too close for comfort until you cut them in half and see the cottony threads inside.  And well the cap is only connected on the very tip.  But still too close for comfort.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • 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.
