Out of commission for a while

32 posts in this topic

Hope you are all having a productive fishing season. Unfornately for me on 5/20/07 I fell a sleep at the wheel and went into the ditch between Victoria and Waconia and was paralyzed from the waste down. I am now at sister kinney rehab center and the prognosis is pretty good i have feeling back in my legs and some muscle contracttion. Sounds like I will be here for 3 more weeks and go on to the courage center. I write hoping for a few more prayers and to say take your kids or dad or wife fishing or hunting or whatever your passion is and cherish every minute of it. Sorry for the non sports related post. Take Care Adam

Good Luck ATM, I'll send some good vibes your way. I'm also out of commision for a while, slipped at a public access last friday and dislocated my shoulder. Your accident makes mine seem like no big deal. Glad to hear you're on the mend Adam, and hopefully on the road to a full recovery.

Sorry to hear about your accident. My mom had a car accident and was paralyzed from the waist down also. She spent a lot of time in Sr. Kenney Rehab so I know the place well. Great people over there. What I remember most about my mom was how positive she always was and how hard she worked on her therapy. She brought our family closer together during that difficult time. She loved to fish and we took her with us in the boat leaving her wheelchair on shore while straping her into a boat seat. She used a cane pole because she had a difficult time reeling in fish with the reel.

Good luck and give us updates on your progress...

No need to apologize Adam, the site calls us family and rightfully so. Scary way to have an accident, I am sure the percentage of people who have had a close call with the same thing is very high. I can't say I am much of a Believer but I do hope you find strength and endurance in the things that you are passionate about!

Best of luck to you and hang in there.

Your situation makes me think of all the times I've been sleepy and driving at the same time, and realize how lucky I've been --- and a little scared, too.

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

        when dont you look odd? ? ?    got ya

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
