With the new hunting season upon us, this is also a good time for all of us to reflect back six years ago. We often

take for granted what a great country we live in.

God Bless America and all those lives lost on this Day!

I still remember and will never forget, when the high school principle barged into chemistry class and said turn on the TV. It was right before the second plane hit. God Bless America, and God Bless our troops.

unfortunately as a nation we have a very short collective memory and seem to already have forgotten this.

Great post though, we must NEVER forget what happened and always remain vigilant in protecting our future. God bless the USA!!!

I was in back of my classroom getting ready for lab, I had Bob and Tom on and thought they were joking, then the second plane hit and they got real serious, then I knew something was up. I told another teacher to turn on the TV, I was the first in the school to catch on to what was going on. It sucked. I was a brand new teacher in a brand new school. Not how I planned on starting the school year.

I was in one classroom and a teacher who jokes around a lot came in and said someone had flown a plane into the building. We thought YA RIGHT turned on the tv and they zoomed in on the second tower getting hit. Never seen those teachers turn so white in my life we knew our lives would never be the same after that.

I was at home with my family and mainly due to my 1 week old daughter.

My wife came upstairs and said to turn on the TV, a plane hit the World Trade center. Just then the second plane hit.

I remember just feeling sick, and wondering what was going on. Completely confused and scared, not knowing what was happening.

I watched MSNBC "As it Happened" last night. It was a minimally edited replay of the entire event. I cried when I heard the voices of the people calling in on cell phones, the fear and shear terror in their voices was all it took.

I was in CO at the time and woke up from a phone call from my mom. I too turned on the TV just in time to see the second plane hit. I will never forget that day!

Like a lot of you it seems, I turned the TV on just in time to see the second plane hit. I had KQRS morning show on and Tommy B was talking about it and he said (before the second plane hit) something like, there is no way that could be an accident can it? I turned on CNN to see if it was being covered and then watched the second one hit.

I was late to work, I was trying an arbitration case that day on a Union Grievance and we all sat around and waited 45 minutes for the arbitrator who said he just couldn't leave the TV. We went through the motions of the hearing, checking the news during each break. Man it was hard to work and concentrate on putting on a case. I remember going home that night and watching the news until late into the night. A day I'll never forget.

I turned on the tube before I went in to work to check the weather and saw the report of the first one crashing and I thought it was a movie clip or something. Then it sunk in that it was live reporting, then the second one hit. I can still see myself sitting in the chair stareing at the tube in disbelief.

I was driving from Corona Ca, to LAX to fly back to Milwaukee. When I dropped of my rental car, and walked in to the Midwest Terminal it was completely silent. Needless to say I didn’t fly that day and luckily was smart enough to get a hotel QUICK knowing anything close will be booked... 4 days later when I flew back LAX looked like a 3rd world Country with all the armed guards at the airport.. Everywhere you looked you saw a guard with a machine gun...Pretty quite on that flight going back to Milwaukee...

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
    • Sushilicious
      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
