Dog Days of Summer

2 posts in this topic

A friend of mine and I headed out to nest lake early last friday for a morning of fishing knowing it was going to be a scorcher out, but to our surprise the fishing was fantastic.

We were able to find some walleye action, a good sunfish bite and also some good pike action too.

I ended up with my biggest walleye so far this season, a 25.5" eye that I got a couple pics of before we watched her swim off. Most of the other eyes were quite small, as were all but one of the pike. The sunfish were decent size, in the 8-9" range, but the better ones were out deep in about 20-22' of water. Hopefully I can get a pic up of the walleye I caught and released. I should have taken one with my cell phone camera instead of my one time camera. Oh well, next time i will remember that. Has anyone else been out chasing eyes and having any luck?

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
