The Fog

Recommended Posts

I have always been fascinated by fog.  So much so I even took the time to look up the meteorological definition.  So here it is.  Fog consists of visible cloud water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air at or near the earth's surface. Fog can be considered a type of low-lying cloud and is heavily influenced by nearby bodies of water, hills,valleys, (trout) and wind conditions.

 My father laid the groundwork for my obsession with the mystical phenomenon.  He equated fog to excellent fishing.  We hurried many days to trout streams before the fog could burn off.  Some of my best trout success was when you could barely see 10 yards in front of you.  Later in life I learned trout have no eye lids and shun sunlight.  The trout felt safe to feed in low light conditions.

My life changed in the fall of 1967.  My father left this earth.  He went to fish in the clouds. Fog is described as low lying clouds. When you speak of heaven you always point upward.  You always hear that heaven will be your happy place.  My dad's favorite place was on a trout stream during the foggiest conditions possible with a fishing rod in his hand.

There are days now that I fish during foggy mornings.  I am always sad when the fog burns off.  It is like my dad leaving.  I know he will return again soon so I have something to look forward to.  When a father leaves a child at such an early age the kid grasps at anything to remember their father.

Childhood turns into adulthood.  Your fondest memories are not forgotten.  Many times they are reinforced through the years.  I for one can feel my dad on stream during the early mornings when the fog is hanging low.  When the heavens are at ground level.

Call me an old daft fool if you want but I still feel his presence every time I fish on a foggy morning.

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
